VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / November 5, 2020 / ZoomAway Travel Inc. (TSXV:ZMA)(OTCQB:ZMWYF) (the "Company" or "ZMA") www.zoomaway.com, is pleased to announce that it will file a shares-for-debt transaction with the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV") in respect of $985,000 of existing debt (the "Debt"). The Debt being settled is part of a series of non-convertible notes that were issued to AIP Convertible Private Debt Fund L.P. ("AIP") pursuant to the Note Purchase Agreement announced on May 17, 2019, as amended from time to time (the "NPA"). The Debt is set to mature on November 30, 2020. The Company confirms that as of the end of its most recently completed fiscal quarter (September 30, 2020), that it was in compliance with all affirmative covenants in the NPA and is otherwise in good standing with AIP. The Company proposes to settle the Debt by issuing to AIP a total of 65,716,666 common shares of the Company at a deemed price of $0.015 per share and 65,716,666 common share purchase warrants (the "Debt Settlement"). Each warrant will be exercisable for a period of 60 months from the date of issuance at an exercise price of $0.05 each. After giving effect to the Debt Settlement, the Company will have a total of approximately 142,360,338 shares issued and outstanding, with AIP holding approximately 48.8% on an undiluted basis.
The Debt Settlement is subject to the approval of the TSXV. As the Debt Settlement will result in the creation of a new "control person" as defined under TSXV policies, the Debt Settlement is also subject to shareholder approval, which approval will be sought at the Company's annual and special meeting of shareholders scheduled for December 16, 2020.
The pricing of the common shares issuable pursuant to the Debt Settlement is in reliance of the temporary relief measures established by the TSXV on April 8, 2020, and extended by the TSXV on September 16, 2020, providing for temporary relief measures to its Policy 4.3, lowering the minimum pricing from $0.05 to $0.01 per share for shares issued pursuant to a debt settlement where the market price of an issuer's shares is not greater than $0.05. The market price of the Company's common shares at close of business on October 28, 2020 was $0.015.
Further to the Debt Settlement and upon TSXV and shareholder approval, the Company will enter into a new loan agreement with AIP whereby it will provide a US$5 million (US$5,000,000) facility for future acquisitions. It is anticipated that the loan will have the following features: (i) a 24-month term; (ii) an interest of rate of 5% per annum; (iii) a due diligence fee of US$100,000; (iv) a facility fee of US$100,000; and (iv) a closing fee of US$1,800,000.
"The pandemic has been very challenging for ZoomAway and the Tourism Industry as a whole," commented Sean Schaeffer, CEO, "We are thankful that AIP is willing to provide funds for the Company to expand. We believe that with the Debt Settlement, together with the new funding for potential acquisitions, that the Company can look forward to a stronger 2021."
All securities issuable in respect of the Debt Settlement will be subject to a statutory hold period expiring on the date that is four months and one day after the distribution date. None of the securities issuable in connection with the Debt Settlement will be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of the securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
