Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - July 15, 2021) - FansUnite Entertainment Inc. (CSE: FANS) ("FansUnite" or the "Company"), a technology company providing leading online gaming solutions, is pleased to announce the closing of its previously announced public offering pursuant to which the Company issued 27,547,100 units of the Company (the "Units") at a price of $0.90 per Unit (the "Offering Price") for gross proceeds of $24,792,390 (the "Offering"), including a partial exercise of the over-allotment option, pursuant to an agency agreement between the Company, Stifel Nicolaus Canada Inc. ("Stifel GMP") and Gravitas Securities Inc. ("Gravitas Securities" and together with Stifel GMP, the "Co-Lead Agents") entered into on July 8, 2021.
Each Unit is comprised of one common share of the Company (each, a "Common Share") and one‐half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share (each, a "Warrant Share") at a price of $1.30 per Warrant Share, subject to adjustment in certain circumstances, for a period of 36 months following the closing of the Offering.
"We are pleased to see continued demand from new and existing investors that believe in our vision of becoming a global gaming company," said Scott Burton, CEO of FansUnite. "With this additional growth capital, we are in the best financial position to date as a company. Since going public in May 2020 we have remained committed in growing our three lines of business while expanding our international footprint to showcase our gaming assets to a growing base of customers. As more jurisdictions around the globe focus on legalizing all forms of betting, we are in a favourable position to have a treasury that can accelerate our expansion plans while being a leader in the international regulated gaming market."
