CALGARY, June 1, 2016 /CNW/ - Zaio Corporation (TSXV: ZAO) ("Zaio" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has closed the second tranche of its previously announced (see press release January 26, 2016) private placement (the "Financing") with gross proceeds of an additional $2.386 million for total gross proceeds pursuant to the Financing of approximately $3.971 million. The Company anticipates a third and final closing in the near future.

As part of the Financing, Zaio also issued approximately 7,158,000 common share purchase warrants ("Warrants"), representing a total of three Warrants issued to each Subscriber for each $1.00 of principal amount of Debentures. Each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one common share ("Common Share") in the capital of the Company at $0.11 per Common Share exercisable for a period of 36 months from the date of issuance.
Finders' fees were paid to arm's length third parties of Zaio consisting of cash in the aggregate amount of $5,100 being 6% of the gross proceeds raised by the Finders and 5,100 Finders' compensation warrants (the "Finders' Warrants") were issued to the Finders being 6% of the number of Debentures subscribed for through the Finders. The Finders' Warrants were issued on the same terms and conditions as the Warrants.
All securities issued pursuant to the Financing (including any underlying securities and the Finders' Warrants) will be subject to a four-month hold period.
