VANCOUVER, BC, April 15, 2021 /CNW/ - mCloud Technologies Corp. (TSXV: MCLD) (OTCQB: MCLDF) ("mCloud" or the "Company"), a leading provider of asset management solutions combining IoT, cloud computing, artificial intelligence ("AI") and analytics is pleased to announce the closing of its previously announced public offering of 6,900,000 units of the Company (the "Units"), which includes 900,000 Units issued pursuant to the exercise in full of the 15% over-allotment option, at a price of $2.10 per Unit, for aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of $14,490,000 (the "Offering"). The Offering was led by ATB Capital Markets Inc. (the "Agent" or "ATB"). A.G.P./Alliance Global Partners acted as U.S. sub-agent to ATB in connection with the Offering.
Each Unit consists of one common share (a "Unit Share") and one common share purchase warrant of the Company (each common share purchase warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to acquire one Common Share ("Warrant Share") at an exercise price of $2.85 per Warrant Share at any time prior to 5:00 p.m. (Mountain Standard Time) on the date that is 36 months following the closing of the Offering, subject to adjustment in certain events.
The Company expects to use the net proceeds of the Offering to advance the Company's Alberta-led ESG and oil and gas decarbonization agenda, including the commercialization of its new AssetCare™️ fugitive gas and leak detection solution, as well as to grow its business in the Middle East and Southeast Asia, and for working capital and general corporate purposes.
"We are very pleased with the interest we have received in this financing, with most of the participation coming from new institutional investors", said Russ McMeekin, mCloud President and CEO. "Our ESG agenda in Alberta, in collaboration with a variety of organizations across the province, has accelerated greatly since we first announced our engagement with Invest Alberta Corporation in February, due in part to the positive reception our new mobile fugitive gas emissions solution is experiencing among oil and gas customers and ESG stakeholders across the province."
The TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV") has conditionally approved the listing of the Unit Shares and the Warrant Shares on the TSXV.
The Offering was completed (i) in certain of the provinces of Canada, other than Quebec, by way of a prospectus supplement (the "Prospectus Supplement") to the Company's short form base shelf prospectus dated April 28, 2020 for Nunavut and its amended and restated short form base shelf prospectus dated April 28, 2020 in the provinces of Canada (together, the "Base Shelf Prospectus"), and (ii) on a private placement basis in the United States to persons who are either (A) "qualified institutional buyers", as such term is defined in Rule 144A under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "U.S. Securities Act") or (B) "accredited investors", as such term is defined in Rule 501(a) of Regulation D ("Regulation D") promulgated under the U.S. Securities Act, and, in each case, in compliance with Rule 506(b) of Regulation D and applicable U.S. state securities laws.
