VANCOUVER, Aug. 21, 2019 /CNW/ - DataMiners Capital Corp. ("DataMiners") (TSXV: DMC.H), and Zoomd Ltd. ("Zoomd"), are pleased to announce that Zoomd FinanceCo Ltd. ("Zoomd FinCo") has completed its previously announced private placement offering (the "Offering") of subscription receipts (the "Subscription Receipts") in connection with the previously announced reverse takeover of DataMiners by Zoomd pursuant to which the existing shareholders of Zoomd will own a majority of the outstanding shares of DataMiners (the "Business Combination"). DataMiners following the completion of the Business Combination is referred to herein as the "Resulting Issuer".
The brokered portion of the Offering was made through a syndicate of agents, led by Haywood Securities Inc. and included Eight Capital and Paradigm Capital Inc. (collectively, the "Agents"). Pursuant to the Offering, Zoomd FinCo issued 8,385,990 Subscription Receipts (including 1,555,990 Subscription Receipts issued pursuant to the non-brokered Offering) at a price of CAD$1.00 per Subscription Receipt (the "Issue Price") for aggregate gross proceeds of CAD$8,385,990. Each Subscription Receipt will automatically convert, without payment of any additional consideration and without further action on the part of each subscriber, into one common share of Zoomd FinCo (each, a "FinCo Share") upon satisfaction of the Escrow Release Conditions (as defined below).
The gross proceeds from the brokered Offering, less certain fees and expenses of the Agents, being CAD$6,680,360 (the "Escrowed Funds"), have been delivered to TSX Trust Company ("TSX Trust"), as subscription receipt agent. The Escrowed Funds shall be held by TSX Trust until the waiver and/or satisfaction of certain escrow release conditions, including, but not limited to, the completion, satisfaction or waiver of all conditions precedent to the Business Combination (other than the release of the Escrowed Funds), the receipt of all shareholder and regulatory approvals required for the Business Combination and other customary escrow conditions for a transaction of this nature as described in DataMiners' press release dated July 2, 2019 (the "Escrow Release Conditions").
In connection with the brokered Offering, Zoomd FinCo has paid the Agents cash consideration in the aggregate amount of CAD$458,080 (the "Cash Consideration"). All of the Cash Consideration has been deposited into escrow and will be released upon satisfaction and/or waiver of the Escrow Release Conditions.
As additional consideration, the Agents have received 458,080 compensation options of Zoomd FinCo (the "Compensation Options") in connection with the brokered Offering. Each Compensation Option will be exercisable after satisfaction and/or waiver of the Escrow Release Conditions for one (1) common share of the Resulting Issuer following the completion of the Business Combination (each, a "Resulting Issuer Share") after giving effect to the Business Combination. Each Compensation Option will be exercisable for a Resulting Issuer Share at the Issue Price until the date that is 24 months following the closing of the Offering.
In connection with the non-brokered Offering for aggregate gross proceeds of CAD$1,555,990, which is being held in escrow, Zoomd FinCo has: (i) paid certain finders cash consideration in the aggregate amount of CAD$108,919 which has been deposited in escrow and will be released upon satisfaction and/or waiver of the Escrow Release Conditions; and (ii) issued an aggregate of 108,919 Compensation Options to certain finders.
Following the conversion of the Subscription Receipts, each FinCo Share issued pursuant to the Offering will be exchanged for one Resulting Issuer Share pursuant to an amalgamation between Zoomd FinCo and a wholly-owned subsidiary of DataMiners. Accordingly, assuming the satisfaction of the Escrow Release Conditions and the completion of the Offering, each holder of a Subscription Receipt will ultimately receive one Resulting Issuer Share for each respective FinCo Share so held.
The net proceeds raised from the Offering will be used by the Resulting Issuer for capital expenditures, working capital and general corporate purposes.
