TORONTO, ONTARIO–(Marketwired – Aug. 25, 2016) – BeWhere Holdings Inc. (TSX VENTURE:BEW) (“BeWhere” or the “Company”) designs and manufactures Bluetooth beacons that in combination with mobile applications, middle-ware and cloud based solutions, provide users with real-time information on the condition and location of their items in transit or at facilities.
The Company is pleased to make the following announcements:
Non-brokered private placement.
A proposed non-brokered private placement of 1,333,333 units of the Company (the “Units“) at $0.15 per Unit for net proceeds of $200,000 (the “Offering“). The offering will be fully subscribed and placed with Owen Moore and Chris Panczuk, directors of the Company.
The Each Unit will consist of one common share in the capital of the Company (a “Share“) and one half share purchase warrant (a “Warrant“). Each full Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one additional common share in the capital of the Company (a “Warrant Share“) at a price of $0.25 per Warrant Share for a period of 36 months from the closing of the Offering. The net proceeds from the Units will be used for general corporate working capital.
“Chris and I continue to be committed shareholders and firm believers in the business. Our reinvesting into the Company shows the strength of that commitment,” said Owen Moore, CEO of BeWhere Holdings Inc.
Concurrent with the non-brokered private placement there will be a proposed $80,000 retirement of debt owed to senior management (the “Debt Settlement“). To retire the obligation, the Company will issue 533,333 common shares at $0.15 per share.
“Converting the debt to shares helps to strengthen our balance sheet as we continue to rollout our product offering,” said Mr. Owen Moore, CEO of BeWhere Holdings Inc.
The closing of the proposed Offering and Debt Settlement is subject to a number of conditions, including receipt of all necessary corporate and regulatory approvals, including the Exchange. All securities issued in connection with the Offering and Debt Settlement will be subject to a statutory hold period of four months plus a day from the date of issuance in accordance with applicable securities legislation.
The directors who will be participating in the Offering and senior management who will be participating in the Debt Settlement are “related parties” and the participation in the Offering and Debt Settlement will each constitute a “related party transaction” as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Securityholders in Special Transactions (“MI-61-101“). The Offering and Debt Settlement will each be exempt from minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as the fair market value of the securities being issued to the related parties will not exceed 25% of the Company’s market capitalization.
The Company is pleased to have Mr. Greg Cameron join the Company’s Board of Directors effective immediately. “Greg is an accomplished capital markets leader and advisor, with a successful track record of helping small cap companies such as ourselves realize their potential. “We are excited to leverage his network and experience in order to further expand our business,” said Mr. Owen Moore, CEO of BeWhere Holdings Inc.
To facilitate the addition of Mr. Cameron to the Board, Mr. Peter George has agreed to resign his Board appointment. “Peter’s presence will be missed at the Board level but I am delighted that he has agreed to remain with the Company in an advisory role,” said Mr. Owen Moore, CEO of BeWhere Holdings Inc.
