NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES
Vancouver, British Columbia, March 31, 2017 – ParcelPal Technology Inc. (CSE: PKG) (the “Company” or “ParcelPal”) announces that it has completed its non-brokered private placement, as announced on March 22, 2017 (the “Private Placement”). Pursuant to the Private Placement, the Company has issued 840,500 units (the “Units”) at a price of $0.18 per Unit for gross proceeds of $151,290. Each Unit consists of one common share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”), with each Warrant entitling the holder to purchase one additional common share of the Company at a price of $0.30 for a period of 18 months from closing. In connection with the Private Placement, the Company paid cash commissions of $8,640 and issued 60,000 warrants to certain finders (the “Finders’ Warrants”). The Finders’ Warrants have the same terms as the Warrants.
All securities issued in the Private Placement are subject to a statutory four month hold period. The Company intends to use the proceeds of the Private Placement to execute expansion plans of the ParcelPal app and operations which include marketing and investor relations, for research and development and for ongoing general and administrative expenses.
In addition, the Company has issued 97,222 Units at a deemed price of $0.18 per Unit in order to settle debt owed to an officer of the Company (the “Debt Settlement”). These Units will also be subject to a statutory four month hold period.
An insider of the Company has subscribed for Units under the Private Placement and has received Units pursuant to the Debt Settlement. The issuance of Units to insiders pursuant to the Private Placement and Debt Settlement (the “Insider Participation”) will be considered to be a related party transaction within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 (“MI 61-101”). The Company is relying on the exemptions from the 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 Insider Participation.
