Toronto, Ontario – Eyecarrot Innovations Corp (TSX-V: EYC | OTCQB: EYCCF) is pleased to announce the closing of a previously announced non-brokered private placement for total proceeds of $1,600,000. The Company issued a total of 16,000,000 units at $0.10 per unit, each unit comprised of one common share of the Company (a “Share”) and one transferable common share purchase warrant. Each warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional common share of the Company (a “Warrant Share”) until November 24, 2019 at a purchase price of $0.20 per Warrant Share, subject to an accelerated conversion provision (the “Provision”). The Provision indicates that in the event that the closing price of the Company’s shares exceeds $0.30 per share for a period of 10 consecutive trading days, at the Company’s election, the 24-month period within which the warrants are exercisable will be reduced and the holders of the warrants will have 30 days from the date of notification of the Company of such election to exercise the Warrants.
Aggregate finder’s fees of $13,500 in cash and 135,000 finder’s warrants were paid to registrants. Each finder’s warrant has the same terms as the warrants forming part of the units, provided that the finder’s warrants are non-transferable.
