EXO U Announces $5 Million Private Placement


MONTREAL, July 8, 2015 /CNW Telbec/ - EXO U Inc. ("EXO U" or the "Corporation") (TSXV: EXO) announced today that it has entered into an agreement with Mackie Research Capital Corporation (the "Agent") as sole agent in respect of a private placement to be undertaken on a best efforts basis (the "Offering") of up to $5,000,000 of units (the "Units") of the Corporation at a price of $1,000 per Unit. The Agent will have the option, exercisable at any time up to 48 hours prior to the closing of the Offering, to increase the size of the Offering by up to 15% (the "Agent's Option").

Each Unit will consist of one $1,000 principal amount convertible senior secured debenture (the "Debentures") and 610 common share purchase warrants (the "Warrants"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to acquire one common share (each, a "Common Share") of the Corporation at a price of $0.82 per Common Share until the third anniversary of the closing of the Offering. The Debentures will have a term of five years and bear interest at a rate of 10% per annum. The principal amount of each Debenture (the "Principal Amount") will be convertible, for no additional consideration, into Common Shares of the Corporation at the option of the holder at a conversion price of $1.10 per Common Share. The Principal Amount will also be convertible at the Corporation's option in certain circumstances. The Debentures will be redeemable in whole or in part by the Corporation after two years at a price equal to the Principal Amount multiplied by 103%, plus accrued and unpaid interest.

The Offering will be made by way of private placement in those provinces of Canada as the Agent may designate, and otherwise in those jurisdictions where the Offering can lawfully be made under applicable prospectus and registration exemptions.

The net proceeds of the Offering will be used by the Corporation for general corporate and working capital purposes. The Offering is expected to close on or about July 29, 2015.

In consideration for its services, the Corporation will pay to the Agent a commission (the "Commission") equal to 6.0% of the gross proceeds of the Offering, including the gross proceeds raised from the exercise of the Agent's Option, as applicable. The Agent will also receive non-transferable options (the "Compensation Options"), to purchase such number of Common Shares of the Corporation in an amount equal to 6.0% of the gross proceeds of the Offering divided by the exercise price of the Warrants, including the exercise of the Agent's Option, as applicable. The Compensation Options will have the same term as the Warrants and an exercise price equal to the Warrant exercise price. For any Units sold to a party sourced by the Corporation, up to a maximum of $2.5 million of the Offering, the Agent's Commission and Compensation Options will be reduced to 3% and 3%, respectively.

All securities issuable pursuant to the Offering will be subject to a four-month hold period from the date of issuance. The Offering is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

The news release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy any of the securities in the United States, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.  The securities have not been and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "U.S. Securities Act") or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold within the United States or to U.S. persons unless registered under the U.S. Securities Act and applicable state securities laws or an exemption from such registration is available.
