Montreal, Quebec--(Newsfile Corp. - January 28, 2021) - Mobi724 Global Solutions Inc. (TSXV: MOS) ("Mobi724" or the "Company"), a fintech enabler of AI-enhanced payment card-linked incentives, announces that it has authorized a non-brokered private placement financing (the "Offering") and has successfully completed the first tranche of the Offering for aggregate proceeds of $1,150,000. The Company intends to close a second tranche prior to February 15, 2020.
The closing of the first tranche of the Offering was led by Timelo Investment Management Inc. ("Timelo"), facilitated by Echelon Wealth Partners ("Echelon") and consisted of the sale of 23,000,000 units (each, a "Unit") of the Company at a price of $0.05 per Unit (the "Purchase Price"). Each Unit is comprised of one common share of the Company (a "Common Share") and a three-quarters Common Share purchase warrant of the Company (a "Warrant"). Each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share (each a "Warrant Share") for a period of 3 years after the closing date at a price of $0.06 per Warrant Share subject to a warrant exercise acceleration providing that if the volume weighted price of the Common Shares is equal to or greater than $0.20 for a period of 20 consecutive trading days then the Company may anytime thereafter accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants to the date that is 30 days following the date on which the Company issues notice to all the Warrant holders of the new expiry date (and the Company will also issue a press release on the same date as it issues notice confirming the new expiry date of the Warrants).
The Offering was sold pursuant to exemptions from prospectus requirements. The proceeds from the sale of Units will be added to working capital in furtherance of the Company's business. The securities issued pursuant to the Offering are subject to a statutory hold period of four months and one day and completion of the Offering remains conditional to the final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange").

As consideration for their involvement, Echelon earned a referral fee of $80,000 in cash and 1,600,000 broker warrants issued upon the same terms as the aforementioned Warrant Shares.
Marcel Vienneau, CEO of Mobi724 said: "We want to thank Timelo for the confidence that they have placed in our Company, as well as our management and directors who continue to participate in our funding rounds. We are optimistic about multiple growth opportunities."
