Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – November 1, 2023) – DelphX Capital Markets Inc. (TSXV: DELX) (OTCQB: DPXCF) (“DelphX“), a leader in the development of new classes of structured products for the fixed income market, is pleased to announce that it has closed on an over-subscribed non-brokered private placement (“the Offering”) of 3,483,668 units (the “Units”) at a subscription price of C$0.12 per Unit, for gross proceeds of C$418,040. Each Unit consists of one common share (“Common Share”) and one Common Share purchase warrant (“Warrant”). Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one Common Share at a price of $0.20, for a period of two years from the date of issuance.
Insiders participated in the Offering subscribing for 866,667 Units, and as a result the Offering is considered a “related party transaction” within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”) and TSXV Policy 5.9 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions. However, DelphX has relied on the exemptions from the formal valuation and minority approval requirements of MI 61-101 contained in sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101 in respect of related party participation, as neither the fair market value of the securities issued to insiders nor the cash consideration paid for such securities exceeded 25% of DelphX’s market capitalization. A material change report was not filed more than 21 days prior to closing of the Offering as the participation of insiders in the Offering and the extent of such participation was not finalized until shortly prior to the completion of the Offering.
In connection with the Offering, DelphX will pay cash finder’s fees of $3,780 and issue 31,500 finders’ warrants (the “Finders’ Warrants”) to AlphaNorth Asset Management, an eligible finder. The Finders’ Warrants will be exercisable at C$0.20 each for a period of two years after issuance.
The Offering has been conditionally accepted by the TSX Venture Exchange, and completion of the Offering is subject to the fulfilment or satisfaction of certain customary requirements and final acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange. The securities issued pursuant to the Offering will be subject to a hold period of four months plus one day from the date of issuance.
DelphX intends to use the net proceeds from the Offering in connection with the launch of the Company’s novel Credit Rating Security (CRS) product and general corporate purposes.
