TORONTO, Oct. 15, 2018 /CNW/ — DelphX Capital Markets Inc. (TSXV: DELX) (“DelphX“) announced today that it has secured the lead funding, and amended the terms of, its previously-announced private placement (the “Offering“) and will proceed with the issuance of up to 6,000,000 units (the “Units“) at a subscription price of C$0.50 per Unit, for gross proceeds up to C$3,000,000. Each Unit will consist of one Common Share and one-half-of-one share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant“). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one Common Share at a price of $0.70, for a period of 2 years from the date of closing, provided that in the event the closing price of the Common Shares on the TSX Venture Exchange is equal to or greater than $1.30 per share for 20 consecutive trading days at any time following such closing, DelphX may, by notice to the Warrant holders (which may be by way of general news release), reduce the remaining exercise period of the Warrants to not less than 30 days following the date of such notice.
In connection with the Offering, DelphX may pay to eligible finders, cash finder’s fees of up to 7% of the gross proceeds received and may issue finders’ warrants (the “Finders’ Warrants“) of up to 7% of the Warrants placed. The Finders’ Warrants will also be exercisable at $0.70 each for a period of 2 years after closing.
Completion of the Offering is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. The securities issued under the Offering will be subject to a hold period of four months plus one day from the date of closing.
The Units have not been registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements. This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the securities herein described, and shall not constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of that jurisdiction.
DelphX intends to use the net proceeds from the Offering for working capital and general corporate purposes.
DelphX is a technology company focused on optimally mitigating credit risk in the global fixed income markets. Its blockchain-powered solution employs proprietary distributed ledger technology, actuarial science and reinsurance protocols to facilitate broad diffusion of credit default risks. The new DelphX alternative trading system (“ATS”) facility will be regulated by the SEC and operated by its subsidiary, DelphX Services Corporation, a FINRA member firm, to facilitate the negotiation, purchase and trading of two new forms of Smart Rule 144A Securities:
- Covered Put Options (CPOs) that provide secured default protection for underlying corporate, municipal and sovereign securities, with each CPO strike-price equaling the par value of its underlying security; and
- Covered Reference Notes (CRNs) that allow investors to take on exposure to the default risk of a single underlying security or to optionally participate in a pool of diversified risks that broadly diffuses the impact of credit events among all participants.
All CPOs and CRNs will be issued by Quantem Capital Corporation (“Quantem”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of DelphX, and transparently administered within an immutable Distributed Ledger. A traditional book-entry record of each CPO and CRN will also be maintained in parallel by Quantem’s issuing and paying agent to provide additional transparency and efficiency.
