VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA – December 19, 2022 – Mission Ready Solutions Inc. (“Mission Ready” or the “Company“) (TSXV: MRS) (OTCQX: MSNVF) (FSE: 2R4), a provider of comprehensive government contracting solutions, announces that, it has closed the first tranche of its non-brokered private placement (the “Private Placement“), issuing an aggregate of 10,957,875 units (each a “Unit“) at a price of $0.08 per Unit, raising gross proceeds of $876,630.
Each Unit consists of one common share (a “Share“) of the Company and one transferable common share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”). Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional Share of the Company at a price of $0.15 per Share for a period of three (3) years from the date of closing of the Private Placement.
The net proceeds of the Private Placement will be used for ongoing activities and general corporate purposes.
Buck L. Marshall, the President, CEO and a director of the Company, purchased 1,250,000 Units; Terrace L. Nixon, the Chief Compliance Officer and a director of the Company, purchased 1,600,000 Units; James Marks, Chairman of the Company, purchased 751,035 Units; Dong H. Shim, the CFO of the Company, purchased 300,000 Units through his company, Golden Tree Capital Corp.; Paul Litchfield, a director of the Company, purchased 460,000 Units; and Daniel Raczykowski, a director of the Company, purchased 456,840 Units in the Private Placement.
As a result, the Private Placement is considered a related party transaction (as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101“)). The Company is relying on section 5.5(a) and 5.7(a) as neither the fair market value of the subject matter of, nor the fair market value of the consideration for, the Private Placement will exceed 25 percent of the Company’s market capitalization (calculated in accordance with MI 61-101).
No finder’s fees were paid in connection with the closing of the first tranche of the Private Placement. All securities issued in the Private Placement are subject to the TSX Venture Exchange (the “Exchange“) hold period plus a hold period of four months and one day expiring on April 17, 2023.
