Reports Closing of Second and Final Tranche of Private Placement
Uses Proceeds to Settle All Obligations with Vertex One / PenderFund
Files Financial Statements for the Second Quarter
DENVER, Aug. 17, 2020 /PRNewswire/ - Intermap Technologies Corporation ("Intermap" or the "Company") today announced that it closed the second and final tranche (the "Second Tranche") of its previously announced private placement (the "Private Placement"), issuing 4,317,118 Class A common shares of the Company ("Shares"). The Second Tranche included the issuance of 586,685 Shares at a price of CAD$0.56 per Share for aggregate gross proceeds of CAD$328,543.60.
The proceeds of the Private Placement were used to satisfy all of the Company's obligations under the amended settlement agreement (the "Settlement Agreement") entered into among the Company, its wholly-owned subsidiary, Intermap Technologies Inc. ("ITI"), and PenderFund Capital Management Ltd. (the "Lender"). Under the terms of the Settlement Agreement, the Company and ITI satisfied the Company's outstanding debt of US$33.9 million owed to the Lender with a payment to the Lender of US$1 million from the proceeds of the Private Placement. All liens were extinguished in conjunction with closing.
Intermap also announced that the Company's consolidated financial statements for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, along with management's discussion and analysis for the corresponding period and related management certifications were filed on SEDAR at www.sedar.com on August 14, 2020.
"We are pleased to welcome additional new investors and further position Intermap for growth," commented Patrick A. Blott, Chairman and CEO. "By eliminating debt, combined with tax advantages in multiple jurisdictions, and greater common stock liquidity, Intermap is building the only publicly traded geospatial platform that can leverage three powerful financial currencies – namely, its publicly traded stock, tax attributes, and balance sheet. Together with dedicated and talented employees, our numerous sophisticated investors, patented technology and a scalable business model, we will maximize these advantages during this unique period of industry consolidation."
The Company also issued 19,718 warrants to certain finders (the "Warrants") under the Private Placement. Each Warrant is exercisable for one share at an exercise price of USD$0.423 per Share, being the U.S. dollar equivalent of CAD$0.56 as of the date of issuance, at any time until August 14, 2022.
All Shares and Warrants issued in connection with the Private Placement are subject to a four-month hold period during which trading in the securities is restricted in accordance with applicable securities laws.
The Private Placement and the listing of the Shares issued under the Private Placement and the Shares issuable upon exercise of the Warrants on the Toronto Stock Exchange (the "TSX") is subject to final approval of the TSX upon satisfaction of customary closing conditions. The TSX conditionally approved the Private Placement and the listing of the Shares issued thereunder and the Shares issuable upon exercise of the Warrants prior to closing of the first tranche of the Private Placement.
Mr. Blott subscribed for an additional 22,330 Shares under the Second Tranche. His participation constitutes a "related party transaction" as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). Such participation is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 on the basis that participation in the Private Placement by Mr. Blott does not exceed 25% of the fair market value of the Company's market capitalization.
