TORONTO, Nov. 08, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- QYOU Media Inc. ("QYOU" or the "Company") (TSXV: QYOU) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with Clarus Securities Inc. (the "Agent"), pursuant to which the Agent has agreed to conduct, on a "best-efforts" marketed basis, an offering of up to 25,600,000 units of the Company (the "Units") at a price of $0.125 per Unit (the "Offering Price") for aggregate gross proceeds to QYOU of up to $3,200,000 (the "Offering").
Each Unit will consist of one common share in the capital of the Company (each, a "Common Share") and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one Common Share at an exercise price of C$0.20 for 24 months following the completion of the Offering.
The Company has granted the Agent an option (the "Over-allotment Option"), exercisable in whole or in part, to purchase up to an additional 3,840,000 Units for a period of 30 days from and including the Closing Date to cover over-allotments, if any, and for market stabilization purposes. The Agent shall be under no obligation whatsoever to exercise the Over-allotment Option in whole or in part. If the Over-allotment Option is exercised in full, the aggregate gross proceeds of the Offering will be C$3,680,000.
The Units will be offered by way of a prospectus supplement (the "Prospectus Supplement") to QYOU's short form base shelf prospectus dated July 7, 2022, of which the Prospectus Supplement will be filed with the securities commissions and other similar regulatory authorities in each of the provinces of Alberta, British Columbia and Ontario and in jurisdictions outside of Canada as are agreed to by the Company and the Agent on a private placement or equivalent basis.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the Offering to build out its Indian operations, and for working capital and general corporate purposes.
The Offering is expected to close on or about November 17th, 2022 and is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV").
The securities being offered have not been, nor will they be, registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "U.S. Securities Act") or any state securities laws, and may not be offered or sold to, or for the account or benefit of, persons in the United States or U.S. persons absent registration under the U.S. Securities Act and all applicable state securities laws or compliance with the requirements of an exemption therefrom.
