Good Life Networks Announces Updated Acquisition Deal Terms and Amendment of Private Placement Offering Terms
Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - June 20, 2019) - Good Life Networks Inc. (TSXV: GOOD) ("GLN" or the "Company"), is pleased to announce it has amended the closing payment terms associated with the acquisition (the "Acquisition") of mPlore, LLC ("mPlore") (see news release dated April 10, 2019). Due to these more favorable acquisition terms, GLN is also pleased to announce that, subject to regulatory approval, it proposes to amend the terms of its previously announced private placement Offering (the "Offering") (see news release dated June 3, 2019).
Upon closing of the Acquisition, the payment due to mPlore will be reduced by US$2,000,000. Additionally, the parties intend to add a performance earn-out term, whereby GLN will pay mPlore up to US$2,000,000 after 24 months from the date that a definitive agreement is signed, provided that mPlore achieves certain mutually agreeable performance benchmarks (complete terms to be disclosed upon the signing of a definitive agreement). The aggregate price of the Acquisition will remain unchanged.
As a result of these amendments to the Acquisition, GLN intends to reduce the maximum amount of the Offering from $5,000,000 to $2,000,000 to align with the reduced closing cash requirement needed to acquire mPlore. The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering to complete the Acquisition and subsequently for the expansion and operation of mPlore.
Proposed Amended Terms of Acquisition
The amendments to the binding letter of intent announced on April 10th, 2019 include:
upon closing of the Acquisition, GLN will pay US$850,000 in cash (previously US$2,800,000) to the unit holders of mPlore; and
24 months after the signing of a definitive agreement representing the amended terms of the Acquisition, GLN will pay to the unit holders of mPlore, a performance earn-out of up to US$2,000,000 (previously $0) in cash, provided that mPlore achieves certain mutually agreeable benchmarks.
Proposed Amended Terms of Offering
The proposed amendments to the Offering announced on June 3, 2019 include:
a unit price of $0.20 (previously $0.27);
total gross proceeds of up to approximately $2,000,000 (previously $5,000,000); and
in the event that, after the date that is six months following the closing of the Offering, the closing trading price of the common shares of GLN on the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV") is at or above $0.75 per common share for a period of 20 consecutive trading days, the Company may accelerate the expiry date of the warrants ("Warrants") underlying the units by giving notice to the holders thereof and in such case the Warrants will expire on the 30th day after the date on which such notice is given by the Company.
Subscribers will be subject to a statutory hold period that extends four (4) months plus one (1) day from the closing of the Offering.
The closing date of the Offering is scheduled to be on or about June 28, 2019 and is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary approvals, including the approval of the TSXV and the applicable securities regulatory authorities.
Jesse Dylan, CEO of GLN commented, "GLN's evolution into the mobile space is an integral part of our growth strategy. Why? It's predicted that the Mobile ad spend will top $93 billion in 2019, over $20 billion more than what will be spent on TV! (1) It's our intention to capture a portion of that advertising spend through the acquisition of mPlore. By reducing the amount of cash required to close the acquisition we will be able to utilize additional resources to support the planned expansion of mPlore to achieve our financial objectives. These new deal terms also reduce the need for acquisition capital"
