Tailwinds Take: we have had our eye on TRAK.V for a while and were waiting to see the successful conclusion of this financing before stepping into the stock. Based on our preliminary estimates, Trakopolis could do $10M in revenue in 2017, which makes it very cheap for an IoT company with a rapid growth rate.
Calgary, Alberta – September 6, 2017 – Trakopolis IoT Corp. (“Trakopolis” or the “Company“) (TSX VENTURE: TRAK) is pleased to announce that it has completed its previously announced brokered private placement (the “Offering“), selling an aggregate of 2,249,988 units at a price of $0.90 per Unit (the “Units“) raising gross proceeds to the Company of approximately $2,025,000. The Offering was led by Canaccord Genuity Corp. (“Canaccord”), on behalf of a syndicate of agents including Haywood Securities Inc. and Echelon Wealth Partners Inc.
Each Unit consists of one common share (a “Common Share”) and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant (each whole Common Share purchase warrant, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant is exercisable for one Common Share for a period of two years from the closing date of the Offering at an exercise price of $1.20 per Common Share.
The net proceeds of the Offering will be used for expansion, business development activities and general working capital and corporate purposes.
In connection with the Offering the Agents received a cash commission equal to 7.0% of the gross proceeds received by the Corporation from the Offering and agents’ warrants (the “Agents’ Warrants“) equal to 7.0% of the Units sold pursuant to the Offering, other than with respect to subscribers identified to the Agents by the Corporation, where the cash commission and Agents’ Warrants were reduced to 3.5%, respectively, and certain subscription proceeds with respect to which no commission or Agents’ Warrants were applicable. Additionally, Canaccord received a cash fee equal to $35,500 and 19,444 Common Shares at Closing. Each Agent’s Warrant entitles the holder to acquire one additional Common Share at a price of $0.90 per Common Share for a period of 24 months from the closing date.
