TORONTO, Oct. 25, 2021 /CNW/ – Tokens.com Corp. (NEO: COIN) (Frankfurt Stock Exchange: 76M) (OTCQB: SMURF) (“Tokens.com” or the “Company”), a publicly-traded company that invests in revenue-generating crypto and blockchain assets linked to Decentralized Finance (“DeFi”), Non-Fungible Tokens (“NFTs”) and metaverse real estate, is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with Stifel GMP as lead agent and on behalf of a syndicate of agents (the “Agents“), in connection with a proposed marketed offering of units of the Company (the “Units“) for aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of up to C$10.0 million at a price C$0.90 per Unit (the “Offering“).
Each Unit will consist of one common share (each, a “Common Share”) and one-half common share purchase warrant (each whole common share purchase warrant, a “Warrant”) of the Company. Each whole Warrant shall entitle the holder thereof to acquire one common share in the capital of the Company (each, a “Warrant Share”) at a price of C$1.15 per Warrant Share, until the date which is 36 months following the Closing Date, subject to adjustment in certain events.
The Company will grant the Agents an option (the “Agents’ Option”) to increase the size of the Offering by up to an additional 15% of the Units sold under the Offering, exercisable in whole or in part, at any time and from time to time up to 48 hours prior to the Closing Date.
“This financing allows Tokens.com to advance its strategy of purchasing tokens linked to DeFi and NFTs. In addition, the proceeds will be used to increase our ownership of Metaverse Group and allow that operation to continue to purchase additional NFT-based land parcels in the top metaverses. The metaverse is an exciting growth area and Tokens.com provides investors exposure to this sector,” commented CEO, Andrew Kiguel.
The net proceeds from the Offering will be used for making investments in cryptocurrencies to be used for staking, investments in its 50% subsidiary the Metaverse Group, and for working capital and general corporate purposes.
A metaverse is a 3D online city where people can work, play games and communicate in a virtual environment. Tech firms have implemented metaverse elements in popular games including Animal Crossing, Fortnite and Roblox. Other technology companies such as Microsoft have also embraced the metaverse as the convergence of the virtual and physical world, which has only been accelerated with the pandemic. Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg made headlines recently when he said the world’s most popular social network will become a metaverse company(1). These elements include planning live events, such as concerts, conferences, pitch competitions and tournaments, where millions of players can interact from around the globe.
“The metaverse is having a major global impact on how consumers interact, socialize and shop. We believe it’s going to be one of the biggest revolutions in computing – right up there with the mobile revolution and the internet revolution,” said CEO, Andrew Kiguel. “We expect that all businesses will be forced to adopt a metaverse strategy in the next few years. At Tokens.com, we see this opportunity and through Metaverse Group, we are well-positioned with prime metaverse NFT assets.”
The Offering is scheduled to close in November 2021 and is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary regulatory and other approvals including the approval of the NEO Exchange.
