TORONTO, Aug. 25, 2020 /CNW/ - Voyager Digital Ltd. (CSE: VYGR) ("Voyager" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has seen extraordinary growth in the first two months of its current fiscal year. Since the conclusion of its prior fiscal year ended June 30, 2020, Voyager has seen an increase in the following metrics:
- Revenue (unaudited) to date for the current September fiscal quarter has increased materially over the June quarter and the full September quarter is expected to increase more than 200% over the quarter ended June 30th.
- Principal value traded in August has grown 350% from the value traded in June
- Customer Assets on the Voyager Platform have grown over 100% since June 30, 2020
As Voyager continues to see extraordinary and exponential growth in the number of customers, customer assets, and principal value traded, the Company anticipates that revenues associated with the business will continue to accelerate at a similar pace.
In order to fuel its continued growth, the Company also announced it intends to raise up to $5,001,400 (or up to $5,751,610 if the Agents' Option (as defined below) is exercised in full) by way of a private placement on a "best efforts", agency basis (the "Offering"). The Offering is being led by Stifel GMP, as sole bookrunner, together with Eight Capital (the "Agents").
Pursuant to the proposed Offering, the Company will issue special warrants ("Special Warrants") of the Company at a price of $0.85 per Special Warrant. Each Special Warrant will be convertible into one unit of the Company (each, a "Unit") without payment of any additional consideration upon certain conditions being met. Each Unit will consist of one (1) common share of the Company, (each, a "Common Share") and one–half of one (0.5) common share purchase warrant (each whole common share purchase warrant, a "Warrant"), with each Warrant being exercisable to acquire one common share of the Company (a "Warrant Share") at an exercise price of C$1.15 per Warrant Share for a term of three (3) years following the closing of the Offering.
The Company has granted the Agents an over-allotment option (the "Agents' Option"), exercisable in whole or in part, at any time and from time to time up to 48 hours prior to the Closing Date, to increase the size of the Offering by up to 15% of the number of Special Warrants sold pursuant to the Offering, on the same terms and conditions as the Offering.
The Company will use its commercially reasonable efforts to qualify the distribution of the Common Shares and Warrants issuable upon exercise of the Special Warrants by way of a prospectus ("Qualifying Prospectus") within 90 days following the closing of the Offering (the "Qualifying Condition"). The securities issued in connection with the Offering will be subject to a 4–month hold period from the date of the closing of the Offering (the "Closing Date") unless the Qualifying Prospectus is filed and receipted within that time. If the Qualifying Condition is not met, each Special Warrant will be exercisable (for no additional consideration and with no further action on the part of the holder thereof) for 1.1 Units. Upon completion of the Offering, the Company will make an application to list the Common Shares, Warrants and Warrant Shares issuable on exercise of the Special Warrants on the Canadian Securities Exchange (the "Exchange"), subject to the Company fulfilling all of the listing requirements of the Exchange. The Special Warrants will not be listed on any stock exchange or over–the–counter market.
The Company plans to use the net proceeds from the Offering for working capital and general corporate purposes.
"Over the past two months, we have continued to see substantial account growth as more people have embraced the use of digital assets," said Steve Ehrlich, Co-Founder and CEO of Voyager. "The proceeds from this private placement should provide us additional financial flexibility to support our future growth as we focus on enhancing the Voyager Platform and executing on our international growth plans. We intend to keep expanding our platform's capabilities to ensure every trader and investor who wants to participate in the cryptocurrency market has a trusted broker working for them."
The Offering is scheduled to close in September 2020 on a date to be determined by the Agents and is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary approvals including the approval of the Exchange and the securities regulatory authorities and the execution of a definitive agency agreement with the Agents in respect of the Offering.
