TORONTO, Oct. 13, 2016 /CNW/ - iSIGN Media Solutions Inc. ("iSIGN" or the "Company") (TSXV:ISD) (OTCQX: ISDSF), a leading provider of interactive mobile advertising solutions that serves advertisers, manufacturers, retailers and advertising agencies throughout North America, today announced that it intends to complete a financing by way of private placement of secured convertible promissory notes (the "Notes"), for aggregate gross proceeds of $139,000.
The Notes will have term of twelve months and will accrue interest at a rate of 10% per annum, payable upon maturity.
The principal amount can, at the option of the Note holder, be converted into units of the Company (the "Units") at a price equal to $0.10 per Unit. Each Unit shall be comprised of one common share of the Company (a "Unit Share") and one common share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each Warrant shall be exercisable to acquire one common share of the Company (a "Warrant Share") for a period of two years following the date of issuance of the Warrant at an exercise price of $0.15 per Warrant Share. The Unit Shares and Warrants (and, if applicable, the Warrant Shares) will be subject to a minimum hold period of 4 months from the date of issue of the Notes.
The Company anticipates closing the private placement as soon as practicable, subject to receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. The proceeds from the sale of the Notes will be used for general working capital and software development.
