OTTAWA, ON, March 24, 2022 /CNW/ – Martello Technologies Group Inc., (“Martello” or the “Company“) (TSXV: MTLO), a leading developer of enterprise digital experience monitoring (“DEM“) solutions, today announced the closing of the third tranche (the “Third Tranche“) of its previously announced non-brokered private placement (the “Private Placement“). This is expected to be the final tranche in the Private Placement, bringing the total aggregate gross proceeds to CDN$2,487,000.
Under the Third Tranche, the Company issued 500,000 common shares in the capital of the Company (the “Common Shares“) to a Martello insider, at a price of CDN$0.10 per Common Share (the “Offering Price“), representing a premium of more than 80% to the closing price of the Common Shares on March 23, 2022 for aggregate gross proceeds of CDN$50,000.
The Private Placement has been subscribed entirely, either directly or indirectly by Martello insiders, including Terence Matthews through Wesley Clover International Corporation, Bruce Linton, John Proctor, Colley Clarke, Michael Michalyshyn, Don Smith, Mike Galvin, Jennifer Camelon and Erin Crowe.
The Common Shares issued in the Third Tranche are subject to a four month hold period until July 24, 2022.
The net proceeds from the Private Placement are expected to be used by the Company to pursue sales activities and product features and enhancements, as well as for general working capital purposes. The Private Placement is subject to certain conditions, including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary regulatory and other approvals, including the approval of the listing of the Common Shares on the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV“).
The Third Tranche constitutes a “related party transaction” within the meaning of TSXV Policies 4.1 and 5.9 and Multilateral Instrument 61–101 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61–101“), as it was subscribed entirely by Jennifer Camelon. The Company has relied on exemptions from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61–101 contained in sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61–101 in respect of the Third Tranche as the fair market value (as determined under MI 61-101) of the insider’s participation in the Third Tranche is below 25% of the Company’s market capitalization (as determined in accordance with MI 61-101).
