The Company also disclosed its intention to utilize the proceeds to enhance its exposure and business in the United States. In conjunction with the US business expansion, Visionstate seeks to pursue a quotation on the OTCQB market in the US.
The funds raised from the private placement will be allocated towards the development and rollout of ViCCi 2.0, an artificial intelligence application designed to enhance customer service and for general operating capital. Additionally, the proceeds will support sales and marketing initiatives aimed at expanding the reach of Visionstate’s proprietary Wanda™ technology to global markets. A portion of the proceeds will also be designated for general operating capital.
ViCCi 2.0 represents an innovative tool that leverages artificial intelligence to provide businesses with real-time insights into customer behavior, preferences, and feedback. Through ViCCi 2.0, businesses can optimize their customer service, sales, and marketing efforts, leading to improved customer engagement, loyalty, and revenue. Visionstate has partnered with AI startup Fluidio.ai to pursue opportunities related to ViCCi 2.0.
“We are excited to announce this new private placement and the launch of ViCCi 2.0,” said John Putters, CEO of Visionstate Corp. “This financing will significantly expedite the rollout of ViCCi 2.0 and expand Wanda’s presence beyond Canada. Moreover, it will provide us with the necessary working capital to support our ongoing operations.”
Visionstate’s Wanda™ IoT platform has been successfully deployed in various public spaces, including hospitals, airports, and shopping malls across Canada.
The securities issued in the private placement will be subject to a hold period of four months and one day from the date of issuance.
In conjunction with the Offering, Visionstate will utilize the existing security holders’ exemption and other available prospectus exemptions. For investors relying on the existing security holders’ exemption, the total acquisition cost of Visionstate securities cannot exceed $15,000 in the previous 12 months, unless the shareholder has obtained investment advice from a registered investment dealer in their jurisdiction. The offer to purchase Units is open to all security holders of Visionstate who held common shares on the record date of June 7, 2023.
Shareholders residing outside of Canada must comply with local jurisdiction requirements to participate. In the event that subscriptions received pursuant to the existing security holders’ exemption cause the Offering to exceed $500,000, Visionstate will accept such subscriptions on a first come, first served basis.
