VANCOUVER, British Columbia--SoMedia Networks Inc. ($VID:CA) (“SoMedia” or the “Company”), pioneer of scalable video production solutions, announces that it has entered into an agreement with Euro Pacific Canada Inc. (“EPC”), pursuant to which EPC has agreed to act as agent for the sale of 8,000,000 special warrants of SoMedia (the “Special Warrants”) at a price of C$0.25 per Special Warrant, representing aggregate gross proceeds of C$2 million (the "Offering").
Each Special Warrant entitles the holder thereof to acquire at any time after the closing date of the Offering (the "Closing Date"), for no additional consideration, one unit of SoMedia (a “Unit”), with each Unit comprised of one common share of SoMedia (a “Common Share”) and one-half of one common share purchase warrant of SoMedia (each whole common share purchase warrant, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share at an exercise price of C$0.35 per Common Share for a period of 24 months following the Closing Date.
All unexercised Special Warrants will be deemed to be exercised, without payment of additional consideration or further action, on the earlier of: (i) the third business day following the day upon which SoMedia obtains a receipt for a final prospectus (the “Final Prospectus”) qualifying the underlying Common Shares, the underlying Warrants, the common shares of the Company underlying the Warrants, the Broker Warrants (as defined below) and the common shares of the Company underlying the Broker Warrants (collectively the "Underlying Securities") from the securities regulatory authority in each jurisdiction where the Final Prospectus is filed; and (ii) the date that is four months and one day following the Closing Date. It is intended that the Final Prospectus will be filed in Ontario, Alberta, British Columbia (the "Qualifying Jurisdiction") and such other jurisdictions as SoMedia and EPC may agree.
SoMedia will use its commercially-reasonable efforts to file and obtain a receipt for the Final Prospectus in the Qualifying Jurisdictions as soon as reasonably practicable. If SoMedia fails to obtain a receipt for the Final Prospectus by the date that is 60 days from the Closing Date, the holders of Special Warrants resident in the Qualifying Jurisdictions will be entitled to receive 1.085 Common Shares (instead of one Common Share) and 0.5 of a Warrant on the deemed exercise of the Special Warrants, subject to approval by the TSX Venture Exchange.
The Offering is expected to close on or about May 15, 2015. Completion of the Offering remains subject to certain conditions, including receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals.
In consideration for their services, EPC and any member of the selling group will be entitled to receive: (i) a cash commission equal to 6% of the gross proceeds of the Offering; and (ii) such number of Special Warrants (the "Broker Warrants") as is equal to 6% of the number of Special Warrants sold in connection with the Offering. Each Broker Warrant entitles the holder thereof to acquire at any time after the Closing Date, for no additional consideration, one Unit.
SoMedia plans to use the net proceeds from the Offering for working capital and general corporate purposes.
From the date of issue, subject to obtaining a receipt for the Final Prospectus in the Qualifying Jurisdictions, the Underlying Securities will be subject to a four-month and one day hold period as required by Canadian securities laws.
