VANCOUVER, B.C. – Mission Ready Services Inc. (TSX-V: MRS) – Further to the news release dated December 3, 2015 announcing a non-brokered private placement financing of up to 25,000,000 units (the “Units”) at $0.06 per Unit for gross proceeds of up to CDN $1,500,000 (the “Offering”), Mission Ready Services Inc. (“Mission Ready” or the “Company”) reports that it has received TSX-V approval to close the second and final tranche of the Offering consisting of 2,967,500 Units raising an additional $178,050 for an aggregate total of 21,376,585 Units, CAD $1,282,595. Insiders of the Company accounted for 16.3% of the private placement.
Each Unit consists of one common share in the capital of the Company (a “Share”) and one share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Unit Warrant”).

The Unit Warrants are subject to a forced exercise provision whereby, if the volume weighted average price for the Company’s common shares is CDN $1.00 or greater for a period of not less than 10 consecutive trading days from a date beginning 4 months and one day following the date of issue, and the Company so elects, the holders of Unit Warrants will have 30 calendar days to exercise all or a portion of their Unit Warrants. Any Unit Warrants remaining unexercised after the expiration of the 30-day notice period will be cancelled and will thereafter be of no force or effect.
The Units were sold on a private placement basis to persons who qualified as “accredited investors” or by other such exemptions available under applicable securities legislation in Canada and other jurisdictions determined by the Company. The securities offered are subject to resale restrictions of four months plus one day pursuant to the applicable securities laws.
The Company was granted two 30-day extensions on the completion of the Offering on January 20, 2016 and February 18, 2016, respectively.
In consideration, finders were paid a cash commission of $71,929 and 1,194,017 broker unit warrants (a “Broker Warrant”). Each Broker Warrant shall entitle the holder thereof to acquire one additional unit at a price of $0.06 per unit expiring on December 18, 2017.
