VANCOUVER, BC, June 22, 2022: SWMBRD Sports Inc. (CSE: SWIM) (“SWMBRD” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has completed its previously announced non-brokered private placement (the “Offering”), as described in its News Release of May 3, 2022, pursuant to which it issued an aggregate of 3,460,000 units (each, a “Unit”) at a price of $0.10 per Unit for gross proceeds of $346,000.
Each Unit was comprised of one common share (each, a “Share”) in the capital of the Company and one transferable Share purchase warrant (each, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one additional Share (each, a “Warrant Share”) for a period of one year from the closing date (the “Closing Date”) at an exercise price of $0.20 per Warrant Share.
The proceeds of the Offering will be used for the production of the Company’s SWMBRDs for sale, the production of two additional SWMBRD molds in different sizes, expenses related to listings on the OTCQB and Frankfurt Exchange and general working capital. The securities issued in connection with the Offering are subject to a four month hold period from the date of issuance.
No finders’ fees or commissions were paid in connection with the Offering.
Zimtu Capital Corp. (“Zimtu”), which held more than 10% of the Shares of the Company prior to the Closing Date, purchased 1,150,000 Units in the Offering. Following closing of the Offering, Zimtu owns approximately 19.11% of the issued and outstanding Shares of the Company on a fully diluted basis. The sale to Zimtu constitutes a “related party transaction” within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”), but this sale is exempt from the valuation requirement of MI 61-101 by virtue of the exemption contained in section 5.5(b) of MI 61-101 because the Company’s shares are not listed on a specified market, and it is exempt from the minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 by virtue of the exemption contained in section 5.7(a) of MI 61-101 because the fair market value of the shares purchased, and the fair market value of the consideration paid for them, did not exceed 25% of the Company’s market capitalization.
None of the securities acquired in the Offering were or will be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “1933 Act”), and none of them may be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the 1933 Act. This news release shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of the securities in any state where such offer, solicitation, or sale would be unlawful.
