LAS VEGAS, June 22, 2016 /CNW/ - NYX Gaming Group Limited ("NYX" or the "Company")(TSX-V: NYX) is pleased to announce today that it has entered into a private placement offering for a $10.5 million unsecured convertible debenture and 2,863,636 ordinary share purchase warrants with a private investor (the "Private Placement"). The warrants will have a three year term and a strike price of $3.50. The convertible debenture will bear interest at a rate of 10.0% annually (which interest may be payable in ordinary shares priced at $2.75 (the "PIK Shares"), subject to the dilution cap and the increased interest described below) and will mature on January 1, 2020. The convertible debenture may be converted into ordinary shares of the Company at a conversion rate of $2.75 per ordinary share with a maximum dilution of 4,200,000 shares (after taking into account the PIK Shares). After such dilution cap has been reached, the interest rate on the convertible debenture may be increased to a maximum of 14.42% such that the same number of PIK Shares shall be issuable at the then applicable market price at the increased interest rate as would have been issuable at $2.75 per ordinary share at the original interest rate. The proceeds of the Private Placement were used to settle in part amounts owing by a subsidiary of the Company to another private investor relating to a prior investment from December 2015. The Private Placement is expected to close on June 30, 2016.
