TORONTO, April 6 /CNW/ - Intertainment Media Inc. ("Intertainment" or the "Company") (TSXV:INT) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with M Partners Inc. (the "Agent") to complete a brokered private placement financing, on a "commercially reasonable efforts" basis, of up to 18,750,000 units of Intertainment ("Units") at a price of $0.16 per Unit for gross proceeds of up to $3,000,000. Each Unit will be comprised of one common share of Intertainment ("Common Share") and one common share purchase warrant ("Warrant"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to acquire one Common Share for a period of 24 months following the closing of the private placement at an exercise price of $0.20 per Common Share. Intertainment has granted the Agent an over-allotment option to sell up to that number of additional Units equal to 15% of the aggregate number of Units sold pursuant to the private placement. All securities issued in connection with this private placement will be subject to a four-month hold period.
It is anticipated that the net proceeds of the private placement will be used to fund the Company's growth, the repayment of outstanding debentures issued on various dates from November 2006 to December 2007 and for general working capital.
The Agent will receive commission equal to 7% of the gross proceeds raised in the private placement payable in cash. The Agent will also be issued Agent's options to purchase that number of Units equal to 7% of the Units sold, exercisable for 24 months following the closing of the private placement.
