CIBT Education Group Closes Non-Brokered Private Placement
|July 21st, 2015: CIBT Education Group Inc. (TSX: MBA, OCTQX International: MBAIF) (“CIBT”) is pleased to report that it has closed its previously announced non-brokered private placement (the “Financing”) raising gross proceeds of $1,224,250 by the issuance of 4,897,000 units (each a “Unit”) at a price of $0.25 per Unit. Each Unit consists of one common share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each a “Warrant”). Each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one additional common share of the company at a price of $0.30 per share for a period of 24 months from the closing date.
“We are pleased to see the response to this latest private placement,” commented Toby Chu, President and CEO, Vice Chairman of CIBT Education Group Inc. “In mid-April, CIBT re-initiated its investor relations campaign by conducting a series of road shows and re-introducing the company and its exciting business activities to the investment community. After nearly six years of conducting a very low level of investor relations activities while growing our business, we were excited to learn that there is substantial interest in CIBT’s innovative business model and prudent management approach. Many new investors have purchased our shares from the open market directly as a result of our renewed investor relations campaign, and our share trading volume increased significantly with over 9.78 million shares traded during the past 100 days. CIBT’s trading price has also increased progressively from its 3 month low of $0.22 to the high of $0.34. It is our ongoing intention to maintain a manageable share structure with minimal dilution at each equity raise. We thank our shareholders for their interest and support.”
Finder’s fees were paid in connection with the Financing. All of the securities issued in the Financing are subject to a statutory hold period expiring November 20, 2015. The net proceeds from the Financing will be used by the company for operations and general working capital.
