VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - August 24, 2016) - Mobio Technologies Inc. (TSX VENTURE: MBO) ("Mobio" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has closed an oversubscribed non-brokered private placement (the "Private Placement"). The Private Placement, previously announced August 4, 2016, was increased and closed for gross proceeds of $1,627,500.

The Company issued 32,550,000 units (each a "Unit") to investors at a price of $0.05 per unit, with each unit consisting of one common share and one-half of one share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant entitles the holder to acquire one additional common share at a price of $0.075 for a period of 24 months, subject to certain acceleration provisions in the event that the Company's shares have a closing price of $0.20 or higher for 10 consecutive trading days.

The Company will utilize the proceeds of the private placement for general working capital and corporate development purposes. In connection with the Private Placement, the Company paid cash finders' fees of $12,250 and issued 245,000 finders' warrants (the "Finders Warrants"). The Finders Warrants have the same exercise price and terms as the warrants forming party of the Units.

All securities issued in connection with the Private Placement are subject to a four-month-and-a-day hold period. The Private Placement remains subject to the final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

In connection with completion of the Private Placement, Code Consulting Limited ("Code") of Vancouver, British Columbia subscribed for and acquired 4,800,000 Units. Following completion of the private placement, Code and its joint actors have ownership of 7,358,000 common shares of the Company, representing approximately 12.65% of the Company's current issued and outstanding common shares, and 3,475,000 common share purchase warrants. Code and its joint actors would have ownership of 10,833,000 common shares of the Company, representing approximately 17.57% of the then issued and outstanding common shares of the Company, assuming exercise of only the warrants held by Code and its joint actors.

The Units were acquired by Code for investment purposes. In the future, additional securities of the Company may be acquired or disposed of, through the market, privately or otherwise, as circumstances or market conditions may warrant.
