OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 24, 2012) - TrueContext Mobile Solutions Corporation (TSX VENTURE:TMN) ("TrueContext" or the "Company"), a mobile data solutions company, today announced that it has issued an aggregate of 5,555,556 units at $0.18 per unit (each unit consisting of one common share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant) for gross proceeds of $1,000,000 as part of a non-brokered private placement. Each whole common share purchase warrant will entitle the holder thereof to acquire one common share at an additional purchase price of $0.30 per share at any time up to June 30, 2014. Unless permitted under applicable securities legislation, the common shares and common share purchase warrants comprising the units may not be traded before September 25, 2012. This closing is in addition to the previous closings for $1,500,000 on the same terms announced on December 21, 2011 and February 22, 2012.
Pursuant to Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"), the private placement constitutes a "related party transaction" as an insider of the Company subscribed for an aggregate of 2,777,778 units in the private placement, or 50% of the total number of units issued pursuant to the private placement. The Company is relying on exemptions from the formal valuation and minority approval requirements of MI 61-101, based on a determination that the securities of the Company are only listed on the TSX Venture Exchange and that the fair market value of the private placement, insofar as it involves interested parties, does not exceed $2,500,000 and/or 25% of the market capitalization of the Company at the time the private placement was initially announced. The private placement was approved by the board of directors of the Company at which all of the independent directors in respect of the transaction who are not employees of the Company approved the transaction.
The net proceeds from the private placement will be primarily used for sales automation for operator channels and commencement of operator channels in new geographies and for working capital purposes. The private placement is non-brokered; however, the Company may pay finder's fees in accordance with the rules and policies of the TSX Venture Exchange.
