TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Oct. 2, 2017) - BLUERUSH Media Group Corp. (the 'Company') (TSX VENTURE:BTV) announced today it has increased the amount proposed to be raised pursuant to its previously announced non-brokered private placement of units. The Company proposes to raise gross proceeds of approximately $1,300,000 through the issuance of approximately (i) 20,000,000 common share units at a price of $0.05 per unit, with each unit consisting of one common share of the Company and one common share purchase warrant with each warrant entitling the holder thereof to acquire one common share of the Company at an exercise price of $0.05 per share for a period of 24 months following the closing of the financing, and (ii) 4,444,444 common share units at a price of $0.0675 per unit, with each unit consisting of one common share of the Company and one common share purchase warrant with each warrant entitling the holder thereof to acquire one common share of the Company at an exercise price of $0.0675 per share for a period of 24 months following the closing of the financing.
The Company anticipates that Round 13 Capital Founders Fund, L.P. ('Round 13') will subscribe for $750,000 (11,538,461 units at $0.05 and 2,564,102 units at $0.0675) and would, upon closing of the financing, own and control, directly or indirectly, approximately 25% of the issued and outstanding common shares of the Company (40% in the event Round 13 exercised all of its warrants underlying the units). In addition, subject to the completion of the financing, and for as long as Round 13 owns or control at least 3.33% of the issued and outstanding common shares of the Company, (a) Round 13 would have the right to nominate one nominee to serve as a director of the Company and the Company would appoint such nominee to the board of directors of the Company upon his or her nomination by Round 13, and (b) management of the Company would nominate the nominee for election as director of the Company at each annual meeting of shareholders held after the closing of the financing and the Company would use its commercially reasonable efforts (subject to fiduciary obligations) to ensure that the nominee is elected as a director of the Company.
The financing, and creation of a new 'control person', is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the 'TSXV'). Pursuant to the policies of the TSXV, the Company intends to seek shareholder approval for the creation of a new control person by written consent of shareholders holding more than 50% of all issued and outstanding shares of the Company.
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.
In addition, the Company has also received a subscription from Mr. Steve Taylor, a newly appointed director of the Company, for $250,000 (3,846,153 units at $0.05 and 854,700 units at $0.0675). Such subscription is a 'related party transaction' as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 ('MI 61-101'). The transaction is exempt from the formal valuation requirements of MI 61-101 as none of the securities of the Company are listed on a prescribed stock exchange. The proposed transaction is exempt from the minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as, at the time the transaction was agreed to, neither the fair market value of, nor the fair market value of the consideration for, the transaction, insofar as it involves interested parties, exceeded 25% of the Company's market capitalization.
