VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / November 20, 2023 / ZoomAway Technologies Inc. (TSXV:ZMA) the "Company" or "ZMA") www.zoomaway.com, is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced non-brokered private placement with AIP Convertible Private Debt Fund L.P. ("AIP") pursuant to which AIP subscribed for 3,000,000 units of the Company (the "Units") at a price of $0.05 per Unit for total gross proceeds of $150,000.00 (the "Private Placement"). Each Unit consists of one common share and one common share purchase warrant, each warrant being exercisable for one common share at a price of $0.05 for a period of 5 years. The proceeds of the Private Placement will be used for working capital purposes only.
AIP is the Company's major shareholder and principal lender. As such, the Private Placement constitutes a "related party transaction" within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"), and the Company relies on the exemptions from formal valuation and minority shareholder approval of the Private Placement contained in Sections 5.5(c) and 5.7(b), respectively, of MI 61-101.
Immediately prior to the Private Placement, AIP held 46.96% of the Company's issued and outstanding commons shares. As a result of the Private Placement, AIP's share ownership has increased to 55.19% of the Company's issued and outstanding common shares on a non-diluted basis and to 70.77% on a fully-diluted basis (taking into account existing warrants held by AIP and the warrants to be issued as part of the Units). Neither the Company nor, to the knowledge of the Company after reasonable inquiry, AIP has knowledge of any material information concerning the Company or its securities that has not been generally disclosed. The Company has two independent directors, both of whom have approved of the Private Placement. None of the proceeds from the Private Placement will be applied towards any amounts owed to AIP.
All securities issued pursuant to the Private Placement are subject to a hold period of four months and one day from the date of issuance. The Private Placement remains subject to the final acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange.
The Company did not file a material change report more than 21 days before the expected closing of the Private Placement because the structure and the details of AIP's participation were not settled until shortly prior to the closing, and the Company wished to close on an expedited basis for business reasons.
Early Warning Disclosure
In connection with the Private Placement, AIP acquired ownership, control or direction over common shares of the Company requiring disclosure pursuant to the early warning requirements of applicable securities regulation. Immediately prior to the Private Placement, AIP had ownership of, or exercised control or direction over, approximately 7,668,518 common shares of the Company and 7,301,851 common share purchase warrants. Pursuant to the Private Placement, AIP acquired ownership of an additional 3,000,000 common shares of the Company and an additional 3,000,000 warrants and now holds, or exercises control or direction over, 10,668,518 common shares and 10,301,851 warrants. Following the Private Placement, AIP's common share ownership in the Company increased from approximately 46.96% to approximately 55.19%. In the event that AIP was to exercise of the warrants that it holds, it's common share ownership in the Company would increase to 70.77%.
The Company understands that AIP acquired the aforementioned securities for investment purposes and may, from time to time and depending on market and other conditions and subject to the requirements of applicable securities laws, acquire additional common shares through market transactions, private agreements, treasury issuances or otherwise, or may, subject to the requirements of applicable securities laws, sell all or some portion of the common shares they own or control, or may continue to hold the common shares.
