VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(Marketwired – Jan. 8, 2016) – Pantheon Ventures Ltd. (“Pantheon” or the “Company“) (TSX VENTURE:PVX) is pleased to announce that it has completed the first tranche of its previously announced private placement of units (each, a “Unit“). Pantheon initially announced that it proposed to issue up to 5,000,000 Units at a price of CDN$0.10 per Unit for gross proceeds of up to CDN$500,000. The private placement was oversubscribed and, as a result, Pantheon increased the size of the offering. Under the first tranche of the private placement, a total of 7,225,000 Units were issued at a price of $0.10 per Unit for gross proceeds of $722,500. It is expected that a second tranche of the private placement for gross proceeds of $150,000 will be completed within the next week.
Each Unit is comprised of one common share in the capital of Pantheon (a “Common Share“) and one common share purchase warrant (a “Warrant“). Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one Common Share at a price of $0.10 per share for a period of one year from the date of issuance. In connection with the completion of the first tranche of the private placement, Pantheon paid aggregate cash finder’s fees in the amount of $700 to eligible finders who introduced subscribers to the private placement. All of the securities issued under the private placement are subject to a four month resale restriction.
The net proceeds of the financing are being used primarily to provide Moovly NV with an unsecured bridge loan in the principal amount of up to CDN$600,000 bearing interest at a rate of 4% per annum. Pantheon has advanced the principal amount of CDN$450,000 to Moovly NV with the balance of the loan to be advanced upon completion of the second tranche of the private placement. The loan is being provided to Moovly NV in order to enable Moovly NV to continue to pursue certain business projects pending completion of its business combination with Pantheon.
Trading of the Common Shares has been halted and will remain halted pending the satisfaction of all applicable requirements of the TSX Venture Exchange. Pantheon will issue a further new release as soon as further details are available regarding the resumption of trading.
Brandon Boddy, Director of Pantheon, states, “We are very pleased to have nearly doubled our proposed financing in a challenging market environment with much support coming from existing Moovly NV and Pantheon shareholders. Moovly NV continues to grow at a rapid month over month pace while adding blue chip clients to its state of the art video creation platform. We would like to thank our shareholders for their support and look forward to providing future updates.”
