DENVER, Dec. 29, 2014 /CNW/ - (TSX:IMP) - Intermap Technologies Corporation ("Intermap" or the "Company"), is pleased to announce that on December 26, 2014, it completed a private placement convertible debt financing for aggregate proceeds of US$500,000 (the "Debt Financing").
The Debt Financing matures on March 31, 2015 and the principal amount is convertible into common shares of the Company (the "Common Shares") at the holder's option into 8,333,333 Common Shares. Simple interest is payable at maturity at an annual rate of 18.0%. If the principal amount is converted into Common Shares, any interest payable on such principal amount shall be forgiven and the Company shall cease to owe, and the holder shall cease to have any right to payment of, any interest amount. In addition, warrants were issued to the holder of the convertible debt, entitling the holder to purchase up to 1,666,667 Common Shares at a price of C$0.07 per share. The warrants expire in three years and are subject to adjustment in certain events.
The Debt Financing is subject to a prepayment right by the Company at 105% of the principal amount at any time from the date of closing, subject to a 30 day notice period and the holder's right to exercise his conversion rights during any such notice period.
The proceeds of the Debt Financing will be used by the Company for general operating purposes.
In conjunction with this convertible debt financing, the Company has also applied to the TSX to amend the exercise price to C$0.08 per share for outstanding warrants to purchase 4,791,572 Common Shares of the Company held by a prior note holder (the "Holder") from the Company's June 2012 and February 2014 convertible debt financings. The Holder is arm's length to the Company. In addition to this re-pricing of the exercise price, the Company also intends to issue new warrants to the Holder to purchase 4,597,443 Common Shares of the Company with an exercise price of C$0.08 per share and an expiry date of February 6, 2017. The amendment to the warrant exercise price and the issuance of the new warrants are being given as consideration for the release by the Holder of a first priority lien in certain of the Company's secured assets and the sharing of security on the remainder of the Company's assets on a pro-rata basis with the new lender under the Company's Debt Financing discussed above. The amendments to the warrant exercise price and the issuance of the new warrants are subject to TSX approval.
