VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / February 16, 2021 / ZoomAway Travel Inc. (TSXV:ZMA)(OTCQB:ZMWYF) (the "Company" or "ZMA") www.zoomaway.com, is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced shares-for-debt transaction with AIP Convertible Private Debt Fund LP ("AIP") pursuant to which the Company settled $985,750 of maturing debt by the issuance to AIP of a total of 65,716,666 common shares of the Company at a deemed price of $0.015 per share and 65,716,666 common share purchase warrants (the "Debt Settlement"). Each warrant is exercisable for a period of 60 months from the date of issuance at an exercise price of $0.05 each. After giving effect to the Debt Settlement, the Company has a total of approximately 153,360,338 shares issued and outstanding, with AIP holding approximately 45.00% on an undiluted basis.
The Debt Settlement has resulted in the creation of AIP as a new "Control Person" (as such term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV")) of the Company. In accordance with the policies of the TSXV, the disinterested shareholders of the Company overwhelming approved the Debt Settlement and the creation of a new "Control Person" in AIP at the Company's annual and special meeting of shareholders held on December 16, 2020.
All of the securities issued pursuant to the Debt Settlement are subject to a hold period of four months and one day from the date of issuance.
The pricing of the common shares issuable pursuant to the Debt Settlement is in reliance of the temporary relief measures established by the TSXV on April 8, 2020, and extended by the TSXV on September 16, 2020 and December 15, 2020, providing for temporary relief measures to its Policy 4.3, lowering the minimum pricing from $0.05 to $0.01 per share for shares issued pursuant to a debt settlement where the market price of an issuer's shares is not greater than $0.05.
In connection with the Debt Settlement, AIP acquired ownership, control or direction over common shares of the Company requiring disclosure pursuant to the early warning requirements of applicable securities regulation. Immediately prior to the Debt Settlement, AIP had ownership of, or exercised control or direction over, approximately 3,300,000 voting or equity shares of the Company. AIP acquired ownership of an additional 65,716,666 common shares of the Company representing approximately 42.85% of the Company's issued and outstanding common shares and now holds approximately 45.00% of the issued and outstanding common shares of the Company.
The Company understands that AIP acquired the aforementioned securities for investment purposes and may, from time to time and depending on market and other conditions and subject to the requirements of applicable securities laws, acquire additional common shares through market transactions, private agreements, treasury issuances or otherwise, or may, subject to the requirements of applicable securities laws, sell all or some portion of the common shares they own or control, or may continue to hold the common shares.
