VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / November 17, 2021 / Playgon Games Inc. (TSXV:DEAL)(OTCQB:PLGNF)(FRA:7CR) ("Playgon" or the "Company"), a propriety SaaS technology company delivering mobile live dealer technology to online gaming operators globally, is pleased to announce that it has completed its previously announced non-brokered private placement of units of the Company ("Units") for aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of $10,491,334 (the "Offering"). As part of the Offering, the Company issued 34,971,112 Units at a price of $0.30 per Unit (the "Offering Price"), which consisted in the issuance of 34,971,112 common shares of the Company ("Common Shares") and 17,485,556 Common Share purchase warrants ("Warrants") with each whole Warrant entitling the holder thereof to acquire one Common Share at a price of $0.50 per Common Share for a period of 24 months from the closing date of the Offering. The maturity date of the Warrants will be subject to prior acceleration, at the discretion of the Company, should the Common Shares trade at a price of $1.00 per share or greater for a period of 20 consecutive trading days, the whole in accordance with the terms of the Warrants. Each Common Share and Warrant issued (including the Common Shares underlying the Warrants) will be subject to a hold period of four months plus one day following the closing of the Offering (the "Hold Period").
"With this capital injection secured and our business now gaining significant traction, Playgon is well positioned to execute on our growth strategy, including adding more development and support resources, increased sales and marketing activity in strategic markets, adding more tables and building a new studio to support the growth we are experiencing. We continue to add and onboard additional operators to our iGaming platform," said Darcy Krogh, CEO of Playgon Games. "I would like to thank both our many existing and new shareholders for supporting our vision. These are exciting times for Playgon, I look forward to keeping the market updated on developments over the coming weeks and months to enhance shareholder value."
As part of the Offering, the Company paid and/or issued the following finder's fees to certain registered brokers: (i) 233,870 Common Shares and 233,870 broker warrants of the Company ("Broker Warrants") to Research Capital Corporation; (ii) an amount of $10,151.40 in cash and 33,838 Broker Warrants to Leede Jones Gable; (iii) an amount of $5,250 in cash and 17,500 Broker Warrants to Haywood Securities Inc.; (iv) an amount of $16,170 in cash and 53,900 Broker Warrants to Richardson Wealth Ltd.; (v) an amount of $7,803 in cash and 26,010 Broker Warrants to Canaccord Genuity Corp.; and (vi) an amount of $22,050 in cash and 73,500 Broker Warrants to iA Private Wealth. Each Broker Warrant issued will be non-transferable and will be exercisable for one Common Share at an exercise price equal to the Offering Price for a period of 18 months following the closing date of the Offering and will be subject to the Hold Period.
Certain existing insiders of the Company participated in the Offering by purchasing an aggregate of 3,832,666 Units, representing approximately 11% of the total number of Units issued as part of the Offering. The portion of such participation by the insiders constitutes a "related party transaction" within the meaning of TSXV Policy 5.9 and Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). The Company intends to rely on exemptions from the formal valuation and minority approval requirements of MI 61-101 as neither the fair market value of the subject matter of, nor the fair market value of the consideration for, the transaction, insofar as it involves related parties, exceeded 25% of the Company's market capitalization.
Any net proceeds received by the Company from the Offering are intended to be used to help fund (a) sales and marketing programs for global expansion, (b) additional software engineering, product design, customer support and team leadership, (c) increase IT infrastructure, (d) increase dealer staff and support staff, (e) new studio locations, (f) U.S. strategic initiatives including corporate licensing and certification, and (g) general working capital and corporate purposes.
