Zecotek Closes Non-Brokered Private Placement and Provides Update for Divisional Equity Financings
Singapore, April 27, 2017 - Zecotek Photonics Inc. (TSX-V: ZMS; Frankfurt: W1I) (the “Company”), a developer of leading-edge photonics technologies for medical, industrial and scientific markets, today announced that the Company has closed the private placement previously announced on April 25, 2017, by selling 1,866,667 units (each a “Unit”) of the Company at a price of $0.30 per Unit for gross proceeds of $560,000.
Each Unit consists of one common share (a “Share”) and one common share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”). Each Warrant entitles the holder to acquire one Share at an exercise price of $0.43 per Share for a period of two years from closing.
The Company paid a finder’s fee for this private placement consisting of a cash fee of $33,950 and 113,167 finder’s warrants exercisable at a price of Cdn$0.43 per Share for a period of two years from closing.
All securities issued are subject to a four-month hold period expiring on August 28, 2017.
Net proceeds will be used for general working capital purposes including the manufacture of products and strengthening and maintaining the Company’s IP portfolio.
In addition, as previously announced, the Company reports it continues to be engaged in the direct financing of its two wholly owned subsidiaries: Zecotek Imaging Systems Pte. Ltd. and Zecotek Display Systems Pte. Ltd. A divisional financing will minimize dilution at the public company level, as the subsidiary valuations are significantly greater than the public entity Zecotek Photonic. Negotiations of divisional financings are ongoing in an effort to provide full autonomy to the two subsidiaries to meet the building demand for their respective photonic technologies.
