TORONTO, ON — (Marketwired) — 03/28/16 — Keek (TSX VENTURE: KEK) (OTCQX: KEEKF) today announced that further to its press releases dated March 14, 2016, and March 21, 2016, it has closed the final tranche of its non-brokered private placement originally announced January 21, 2016. The Company issued an aggregate of 6,000,000 units at a price of $0.25 per unit, including 1,034,000 units issued to insiders of the Company, for total gross proceeds from this private placement of $1,500,000.
Each unit is comprised of one common share and one common share purchase warrant of Keek. Each warrant entitles the holder to purchase one common share of the company, at a price of $0.30 per share for a period of 12 months. The common shares issued pursuant to the private placement bear a 4 month hold period. The private placement proceeds will be used by Keek for the implementation of the licensing agreement with Personas.com Corporation, as well as for general corporate purposes. The Company paid aggregate finders fees of $23,475 to arm’s length parties in relation to this private placement.
As a result of the completion of the private placement, the remaining $3,010,000 principal amount of 7% secured convertible notes due March 1, 2017, ($3,000,000 of which were held by Riavera Corp. (“Riavera”), a company controlled by Mark Itwaru, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer), as well as all accrued interest, automatically converted according to its terms, into common shares of Keek at a price of $0.25 per share. Principal and interest accrued on the notes to March 24, 2016, equaled $3,459,517 and resulted in the issuance by Keek of 13,838,067 common shares (of which, 13,792,333 were issued to Riavera). The common shares are subject to a four month hold period from the date of issue.
