Philadelphia, PA, Nov. 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — VSBLTY Groupe Technologies Corp. (the “Company” or “VSBLTY”) (CSE: VSBY) announces that further to its news releases dated July 26, July 28, and September 1, 2022, it has closed the third tranche (the “Third Tranche”) of its previously announced non-brokered private placement (the “Private Placement”) of units (the “Units”).
Units were previously sold in first and second tranches of the Private Placement concurrently with and on the same terms as the Units issued and sold under the previously announced best efforts marketed public offering which closed on July 28, 2022 (the “Public Offering”). The Units were offered and sold under the Public Offering by way of a short form prospectus filed in the provinces of British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Ontario (the “Prospectus”).
Each Unit is comprised of one common share (a “Common Share“) and one common share purchase warrant (a “Warrant“) of the Company. Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to acquire one Common Share (a “Warrant Share“) at an exercise price of $0.50 for a period of 36 months following the applicable closing date. The Common Shares and Warrants issuable under the Private Placement are subject to resale restrictions, including a Canadian four-month hold period.
Pursuant to the Third Tranche, the Company issued 1,733,333 Units at a price of $0.30 per Unit, for total gross proceeds of approximately $520,000. Together with the first and second tranches of the Private Placement, the Company has raised, in aggregate, total gross proceeds of approximately $3,881,520 under the Private Placement.
Together with the proceeds of the Prospectus, the Company intends to use the proceeds of the Private Placement for sales, marketing, research and development, capital expenditures, working capital and general corporate purposes, as more particularly set out in the Prospectus.
The Prospectus, which contains important information relating to the Public Offering, has been filed with the securities commissions or similar authorities in the Offering Jurisdictions, and is available under the Company’s profile at www.sedar.com.
The Company also announces the debt settlements of, in aggregate, CAD$452,659.34 to debt holders (the “Debt Holders”), which will consist of the issuance of, in aggregate, 1,508,862 Units at a deemed issue price of CAD$452,659.34, being CAD$0.30 per Unit.
These issuances will be made in exchange for, and in full settlement of, the amount owed to the Debt Holders by the Company pursuant to unsecured convertible debentures issued on February 26, 2020.
