VANCOUVER, May 24, 2018 /CNW/ - Universal mCloud Corp. (TSX-V: MCLD) ("mCloud" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that, further to its press release issued on May 1, 2018, it has closed the final tranche of its non-brokered private placement (the "Offering").
Under the Offering, the Company issued a total of 15,716,287 units (each, a "Unit") at a price of $0.35 per Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of 5,500,702.
Each Unit consists of one common share of the Company and one-half of one common share purchase warrant of the Company, with each warrant exercisable at a price of $0.45 per share for a period of 36 months following closing, subject to accelerated expiration if the 10-day weighted average trading price of the Company's common shares is at any time greater than $0.80.
The Company has agreed to compensate finders who introduce purchasers in the Offering. In connection with the completion of the second tranche of the Offering, various finders received: (a) a cash commission equal to 7% of the gross proceeds from the sale of Units to subscribers introduced by the finder under the second tranche of the Offering, and (b) that number of finder warrants which is equal to 7% of the number of Units sold to subscribers introduced by the finder under the second tranche of the Offering, with each finder warrant being exercisable for one common share of the Company at a price of $0.35 per share for a period of two years from the date of issuance.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the Offering for its recently announced China expansion, M&A activities and has recently commenced investment in extensive wind turbine data capture via the use of highly precise drone technology in North America.
