EXO U Inc. (“EXO U” or the “Corporation“) (TSX VENTURE:EXO), announced today that a portion of the common share purchase warrants (“Warrants“) that were issued to certain investors on June 13, 2013 have been exercised to acquire 2,948,258 common shares of the Corporation (“Common Shares“), consisting of 585,067 agent warrants and 2,363,191 investor warrants at a price per Common Share of $0.80 and $1.20, respectively, for aggregate proceeds to the Corporation of approximately $3,303,882.80.
The Corporation will use the proceeds received upon the exercise of the Warrants to expand its operations and for general business purposes.
In particular, Hypertech-Ciara Inc. (“Hypertech“) has exercised its Warrants to acquire 333,341 Common Shares. Following the issuance of the Common Shares to Hypertech, it will hold 12,220,841 Common Shares, representing approximately 29.5% of the issued and outstanding Common Shares.
Hypertech has acquired the Common Shares for investment purposes and may, in the future, acquire or dispose of the Common Shares through the market, private or otherwise as circumstances or market conditions warrant.
A copy of the early warning report filed with the applicable securities regulators regarding the issuance of Common Shares set out above will be available within the applicable time and will be available under the Corporation’s profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
This transaction is a “related party transaction” for the purposes of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101“). The Corporation is relying on an exemption from the minority approval and formal valuation requirements of MI 61-101 due to the fact that the value of the transaction does not represent greater than 25% of the market capitalization of the Company.
EXO U has not filed a material change report 21 days prior to the issuance of the Common Shares set out above as no agreement to that effect was in place at that time.
