VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA – (SEPTEMBER 25, 2017) – Mission Ready Services Inc. (“Mission Ready” or the “Company”) (TSX VENTURE:MRS) is pleased to announce that it has closed a non-brokered private placement financing for gross proceeds of $1,650,000 (the “Offering”). The proceeds from the Offering will be used for growth opportunities, sales and marketing initiatives, product development, and general working capital.
Pursuant to the Offering, the Company issued 6,600,000 units (the “Units”) at a price of $0.25 per Unit. Each Unit consists of one common share in the capital of the Company (a “Share”) and one‑half of one share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional common share in the capital of the Company (a “Warrant Share”) at a price of $0.50 per Warrant Share until September 22, 2019.
The Units were sold on a private placement basis to persons who qualified as Accredited Investors or by other such exemptions available under applicable securities legislation in Canada and other jurisdictions determined by the Company. The securities offered are subject to resale restrictions of four months plus one day from the date of issue pursuant to the applicable securities laws and the closing of the Offering is subject to receipt of final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
The Company has paid total cash commissions of $92,810 and issued 185,620 finder’s Warrants, with the same terms as the Unit Warrants, as compensation in relation to the Offering.
Jeffery Schwartz, President & CEO of the Company, states, “We have made tremendous strides in improving our balance sheet over the past 90 days. We believe that the Company’s available resources are best utilized in growing the business as opposed to servicing outstanding payables which is why we chose to add $1.65M in capital resources through an equity Offering. This additional operating capital will help to significantly bolster the continued, unencumbered growth of the Company.”
