Private Placement

The first tranche is part of the private placement announced on Apr. 28 for the issuance of up to 100,000,000 units.

Each Unit consists of one common share of Fineqia (a “Common Share”) priced at C$0.01 per share and one warrant (a “Warrant”) exercisable at C$0.05 to purchase one Common Share for a period of three years from the closing of the Offering.

The Company may, at its option, accelerate the expiry date, provided that closing price trades at or above $0.10 per share for any 20 consecutive trading day period at any time after four months and one day after the issuance of the warrant. Warrant holders will be notified by the issue of a press release by the Company announcing such acceleration. In such a situation, the expiry date shall be deemed to be the 20th day following the date of issuance of the press release.                

Fineqia intends to use the proceeds from the private placement for working capital purposes.

“We’re embracing growth opportunities emanating from the rapid interaction of new technologies such as artificial intelligence and blockchain with financial services and capital markets,” said Bundeep Singh Rangar, CEO of Fineqia.”

The issuance of certain of the Units to directors and officers of the Company pursuant to the Offering will each be considered a “related party transaction” as defined in Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101“). The Company will rely upon exemptions from the valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 contained in sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a), respectively, with respect to the issuance of the Units to the directors and officers.  

These securities have not been and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “1933 Act“). Accordingly, these securities may not be offered or sold in the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, a U.S. person or person in the United States (as such terms are defined in regulations under the 1933 Act), absent an exemption from the registration requirements of the 1933 Act and applicable state laws. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy securities in the United States or in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
