TORONTO, Sept. 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BlueRush Inc. (“BlueRush” or the “Company”) (TSXV:BTV), announced today a proposed non-brokered private placement financing pursuant to which BlueRush proposes to raise gross proceeds of up to $2,000,000 through the issuance of unsecured convertible debentures (the “Debentures”). The Notes will accrue interest at a rate of 10% per annum and will mature on October 31, 2023 (the “Maturity Date”). Accrued interest for year one will be paid on the Maturity Date with interest on the Notes being payable quarterly starting in year two. Accordingly, the first interest payment date shall be on January 31, 2020. In the event the volume-weighted average trading price of the common shares of the Company (the “Common Shares”) is greater than $0.25 for 20 consecutive trading days at any time following October 31, 2019, the Company shall have the option to invite holders of Debentures to convert the then outstanding principal of the Debentures into Common Shares at $0.105 per share (the “Conversion Price”). In the event a holder does not elect to convert, the Conversion Price shall increase to $0.15. Subject to the foregoing, the principal of the Debentures may be converted at any time in whole or in part at the holder’s option into Common Shares at the Conversion Price in effect at such time. On the Maturity Date, the principal of the Debentures may be converted in whole or in part at the Company’s option into Common Shares at the Conversion Price in effect at such time.
BlueRush may pay eligible finders a cash fee equal to 7% of the gross proceeds of the Debentures and finders’ options entitling such eligible finder to purchase that number of Common Shares as is equal to 7% of the number of common shares issuable under the Debentures. Each finders’ option shall be exercisable for common shares of BlueRush at an exercise price of $0.105 per share for a period of 24 months from closing.
The proceeds of the financing will be primarily used to support research & development and sales & marketing while supporting the general working capital purposes of the business as it transitions to a full SaaS model.
All securities issued pursuant to the financing will be subject to a four-month hold period. The Company anticipates closing shortly, subject to the receipt of all necessary approvals.
