TORONTO, May 07, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — AIM3 Ventures Inc. (TSXV: AIMC.P) (“AIM3” or the “Company”) and SilverStream SEZC (dba Vox Royalty) (“Vox”) are pleased to announce the closing of the previously announced brokered private placement of subscription receipts of Vox (“Subscription Receipts”) for aggregate gross proceeds of approximately C$13.75 million (the “Offering”). The Offering has been completed in connection with the proposed reverse take-over transaction between Vox and the Company, as described in the Company’s press releases dated March 2, 2020 and April 28, 2020 (the “Qualifying Transaction”).The Offering was led by a syndicate of agents including Paradigm Capital Inc. (the “Lead Agent”), as lead agent, and Canaccord Genuity Corp., PI Financial Corp. and Jett Capital Advisors, LLC (collectively with the Lead Agent, the “Agents”).Vox Chief Executive Officer, Kyle Floyd, said:
“We are thrilled with the successful outcome of this Offering. Vox initially targeted to raise C$7 million – C$12 million as disclosed in March. However, investor interest exceeded expectations in a time of heightened market volatility due to the pandemic. On behalf of the entire Vox team and our placement Agents we thank our new shareholders for their interest and investment. We are also particularly grateful for the unwavering support of our existing shareholders who have supported us as a private company since 2014. Proceeds from this financing will enable us to build on our aggressive industry-leading royalty acquisition growth profile.”In aggregate, 4,579,361 Subscription Receipts were issued under the Offering at a price of C$3.00 per Subscription Receipt. Each Subscription Receipt entitles the holder thereof to receive one ordinary share of Vox (“Vox Share”) and one half of one ordinary share purchase warrant of Vox (each such whole warrant, a “Vox Warrant”), upon satisfaction and/or waiver of certain escrow release conditions (the “Escrow Release Conditions”), in connection with the closing of the Qualifying Transaction.Each Vox Warrant will be exercisable to acquire one Vox Share at a price of C$4.50 until the date that is 24 months following the date of satisfaction and/or waiver of the Escrow Release Conditions. In connection with the closing of the Qualifying Transaction, upon their issuance, the Vox Shares and the Vox Warrants underlying the Subscription Receipts will be immediately and automatically exchanged for ordinary shares of the Company (“Resulting Issuer Shares”) and ordinary share purchase warrants of the Company (“Resulting Issuer Warrants”), respectively.If, at any time following the closing of the Qualifying Transaction the closing price of the Resulting Issuer Shares exceeds C$4.00 (subject to adjustment) for 15 consecutive trading days, the Company will immediately purchase for cancellation all the then outstanding Resulting Issuer Warrants which are issued in exchange for the Vox Warrants at a fixed price of C$1.00 per Resulting Issuer Warrant (the “Call Option”).The gross proceeds from the sale of the Subscription Receipts, less the Agents’ expenses and 50% of the Agents’ commission, are deposited with and held in escrow by TSX Trust Company in accordance with a subscription receipt agreement dated May 7, 2020 among Vox, TSX Trust Company and the Lead Agent, and will be released to Vox upon satisfaction and/or waiver of the Escrow Release Conditions, less the remaining 50% of the Agents’ commission payable to the Agents out of such funds at such time. If the Escrow Release Conditions are satisfied and/or waived on or before 5:00 p.m. (Toronto time) on September 4, 2020, the escrowed proceeds from the Offering will be released as set out above. If the Escrow Release Conditions are not satisfied and/or waived on or before 5:00 p.m. (Toronto time) on September 4, 2020, or the Qualifying Transaction is terminated at an earlier time, the gross proceeds and pro rata entitlement to interest earned on the escrowed proceeds will be paid to holders of the Subscription Receipts and the Subscription Receipts will be cancelled. Any shortfall in the amount to be returned to holders of Subscription Receipts will be covered by Vox.In connection with the Offering, Vox has agreed to pay to the Agents a cash commission representing 6% of the gross proceeds of the Offering, excluding any proceeds from the sale of Subscription Receipts to subscribers on the “president’s list”. The Agents also received compensation warrants (“Compensation Warrants”) exercisable to acquire such number of Vox Shares as is equal to 6% of the number of Subscription Receipts issued as part of the Offering, excluding any Subscription Receipts issued to subscribers on the president’s list. Each Compensation Warrant will be exercisable to acquire one Vox Share at a price of C$3.00 for a period of 24 months following the closing date of the Offering. In connection with the closing of the Qualifying Transaction, the Compensation Warrants will be exchanged for ordinary share purchase warrants of the Company.About VoxVox is a growth focused mining royalty and streaming company that was incorporated under the Companies Law of the Cayman Islands as a Special Economic Zone Company on January 22, 2014.
