DENVER, March 31, 2017 /CNW/ - Intermap (TSX: IMP), (ITMSF:BB), a leading geospatial intelligence corporation, announced today that it has completed its previously announced equity rights offering (the "Rights Offering"), raising total gross proceeds of US$2,889,581.42. Following the Rights Offering, there are presently 161,457,307 common shares issued and outstanding.
The gross proceeds of the Rights Offering were used to reduce indebtedness pursuant to a December 2016 bridge loan for US$6 million ("Bridge Loan"), provided by Vertex One Asset Management Inc., in its capacity as portfolio manager of the Vertex Fund ("Vertex"). No proceeds of the Rights Offering were retained by the Company. The Bridge Loan was used to fund the Company's working capital requirements. After applying the proceeds from the Rights Offering, the remaining $3.1 million due under the Bridge Loan has been converted into a non-interest bearing term loan, due September 1, 2020.
"We are pleased that over 60% of the Rights issued to eligible holders were exercised, minimizing dilution from our recent working capital financing, and representing a strong endorsement by our shareholders in the Company's prospects," commented Patrick Blott, Chairman and CEO of Intermap. "Furthermore, the Rights Offering was a deleveraging transaction, demonstrating our commitment to achieve return on capital and profitable growth."
Pursuant to the Rights Offering, an aggregate of 60,112,725 common shares were issued, including 41,056,894 common shares that were issued to Vertex, representing 35% of the current issued and outstanding common shares of the Corporation.
At the same time, Intermap announced the filing of its 2016 Audited Annual Financial Statements, Management's Discussion and Analysis and Annual Information Form at www.sedar.com.
