Scottsdale, Arizona--(Newsfile Corp. - October 10, 2019) - IZON Network, Inc. (OTC Pink: IZNN), also known as IZON Digital Media Network (the "Company" or "IZON"), is pleased to announce today that Gravitas Securities Inc. ("Gravitas"), a boutique Canadian investment bank, has assembled, as book runner, a syndicate for the Company's private placement of convertible debentures (the "Debentures") for gross proceeds of up to C$7 million (the "Financing"). The syndicate group (the "Syndicate") consists of Eight Capital, Mackie Research Capital and Gravitas.
The Debentures have a maturity date of 24 months from the closing date of the Financing (the "Closing Date") and bear interest at a rate of 10% per annum, calculated and paid annually in arrears either as cash or accrued as part of the Debentures, at the Company's election. The Debentures are convertible into common shares (the "Shares") of the Company, subject to regulatory approval, at either of the following conversion prices: (a) the offering price of the Shares to be issued under an initial public offering ("IPO") of the Company, less a 30% discount or (b) the quotient of the Company's valuation cap, of C$31,150,000, divided by all of the issued and outstanding securities on the Closing Date, at such conversion price as permitted by the applicable stock exchange.
The Debentures are subject to a bonus provision (the "Bonus Provision"), pursuant to which the principal amount of each Debenture will increase if the Company does not complete an IPO within 12 months of the Closing Date (the "Target Date"). Pursuant to the Bonus Provision, the principal amount of each of the Debentures will be increased by (i) an amount equal to 5% as of the Target Date; and (ii) an additional 1% as of each month after the Target Date subject to maximum increase of 10%.
The Company has agreed to pay the Syndicate a cash commission of 6% of the gross proceeds of the Financing. In addition, the Company will issue on the Closing Date to the Syndicate compensation warrants entitling the Syndicate to Shares equal to 6% of the aggregate principal amount of Debentures sold under the Financing, for a period of 36 months following the Closing Date.
The gross proceeds of the Financing will be used to further the Company's growth strategy and working capital and will provide valuable acquisition and expansion capital. The proceeds will be used to expand the "owned & operated" proprietary screen network on the Company's growing roster of golf courses and drive growth in additional verticals, including transportation and acquisitions, and to provide general working capital.
All securities issued under the Financing will be subject to hold periods prescribed by applicable Canadian and United States securities laws.
"We officially began marketing the IZON Digital Media Network opportunity over the past few weeks now that we have assembled our hand-picked syndicate. With Eight Capital and Mackie Research joining the syndicate and after introducing IZON to influencers in Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal, we are confident in the success of this Financing," said Robert Carbonaro, CEO and Head of Investment Banking, Gravitas Securities. "The level of disruption that IZON brings to the digital out-of-home market will make this a very strong technology company to follow."
"We are very pleased that Gravitas has assembled this syndicate and are now well positioned to finalize the Financing. New golf course candidates continue to be added to our request-for-install list as well ad- integration partners are now signing new publishing agreements. Additional, promising acquisition opportunities have come forward that could further bolster our proprietary network as we continue to expand," said Tim Ummel, CEO of IZON.
