Usewalter Announces Completion of Private Placement
Montreal, Quebec--(Newsfile Corp. - January 15, 2021) - GOLO Mobile Inc., doing business as Usewalter (TSXV: WLTR) ("Usewalter" or "the Company"), is pleased to announce that it has completed today its previously announced non-brokered private placement (the "Private Placement") of 45,833,331 common shares of the Company ("Common Shares") at a price of C$0.09 per Common Share to certain insiders and related parties of the Company, resulting in gross proceeds of C$4.125 million.
With the closing of this financing, Usewalter has secured financial flexibility to continue executing its core business strategy of providing a SaaS-based smart building technology solution for property managers and residents in high-density urban environments. The Company intends to use the proceeds of the Private Placement to fund general working capital requirements and for general corporate purposes, with a specific focus on continuing product development, aggressively expanding geographically across North America and enhancing revenue in 2021 and beyond. Usewalter represents the first SaaS solution to integrate seamlessly with existing building applications provided by other prop-tech software providers. The Company plans to leverage its property management client base and existing relationships to aid in new client and partner acquisitions given increased market demand stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic.
"Securing this working capital to further advance development and pursue our aggressive marketing efforts through 2021 is a key milestone to help build on our Usewalter app, a (residential and commercial) smart building technology solution," said Peter Mazoff, President and Chief Executive Officer of Usewalter. "We are very pleased with the support from our strong and aligned capital providers and excited about the opportunity for Usewalter to become recognized as the app that no one can live without to manage their home and workplace."
The securities issued pursuant to the Private Placement are subject to a four-month trade restriction which will expire May 16, 2021.
