THIS NEWS RELEASE IS INTENDED FOR DISTRIBUTION IN CANADA ONLY AND IS NOT INTENDED FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES.
Redknee Solutions Inc. (RKN.TO) ("Redknee" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has completed its offering of 14,538,500 special warrants (the "Special Warrants") of the Company at price of $3.10 per Special Warrant for aggregate gross proceeds of $45,069,350, which includes 18,500 Special Warrants issued pursuant to the underwriters exercising their over-allotment option (the "Offering").
The Offering was completed on a private placement basis and was underwritten by a syndicate of underwriters co-led by GMP Securities L.P. and TD Securities Inc. and including Canaccord Genuity Corp. and M. Partners Inc.
As previously announced the Company plans to use the net proceeds from the Offering for working capital.
Each Special Warrant will be exercisable into one common share in the capital of Redknee (the "Common Shares") for no additional consideration. The Special Warrants will be deemed to be exercised upon the earlier of: (i) a date that is no later than the fifth business day after the date of issuance of a receipt for a final prospectus qualifying the issuance of Common Shares underlying the Special Warrants; and (ii) four months and one day following the closing of the Offering. Redknee has agreed to use commercially reasonable best efforts to file a prospectus qualifying the issuance of the Common Shares underlying the Special Warrants within 75 days of closing of the Offering in all provinces of Canada where purchasers of Special Warrants are resident.
