TORONTO and VANCOUVER, B.C., April 04, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- WOW! Unlimited Media Inc. (“WOW!” or the “Corporation”) (TSX-V: WOW / OTCQX: WOWMF), is pleased to announce that it has completed its previously announced non-brokered private placement offering (the “Offering”) of an aggregate of 1,838,737 common voting shares and variable voting shares (collectively, the “Shares”) at a price of $1.10 per Share for aggregate gross proceeds of approximately $2,022,610.

The Corporation intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering for capital expenditures as well as general administrative and working capital purposes.

The securities issued pursuant to the Offering are subject to a four month and a day hold period ending on August 3, 2019 pursuant to applicable Canadian securities laws.

Certain insiders of the Corporation (collectively, the “Related Parties”) have participated in the Offering for aggregate gross proceeds of approximately $842,711. The Offering therefore constitutes a "related-party transaction" to the extent of such Related Parties’ participation within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). The Corporation relied on exemptions from the formal valuation and minority security holder approval requirements set out in sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(a) of MI 61-101 as the fair market value of the Related Parties’ participation in the Offering does not exceed 25% of the market capitalization of the Corporation as determined in accordance with MI 61-101. The Corporation did not file a material change report more than 21 days before the closing of the Offering (the “Closing”) as the details of the Offering and the participation therein by the Related Parties were not settled until shortly prior to the Closing, and the Corporation wished to close the Offering on an expedited basis for sound business reasons. No new insiders and no control persons were created in connection with the Offering.

The securities have not been and will not be registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “U.S. Securities Act”), or any U.S. state securities laws, and may not be offered or sold in the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, United States persons absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the U.S. Securities Act and the rules and regulations thereunder, and applicable U.S. state securities laws. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy securities in the United States, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
