A2Z Smart Technologies Corp.

TEL AVIV, ISRAEL / ACCESSWIRE / April 2, 2024 / A2Z Smart Technologies Corp. (NASDAQ:AZ), ("A2Z Smart Technologies Corp." or the "Company"), today announced that it closed its previously announced registered direct offering for gross proceeds of approximately $3.3 million at a purchase price of $0.35 per share. The company issued an aggregate of 9,480,500 common shares in the registered direct offering.

In addition, the Company has entered into binding agreements with certain investors to issue 6,842,857 common shares in a private placement at a purchase price of $0.35 per share, for gross proceeds of approximately $2.4 million. The private placement is expected to close within 60 days, subject to satisfaction of closing conditions.

The Company intends to use the net proceeds primarily for continued development and expansion of its existing business, including fulfillment of contracted smart cart backlog orders and acceleration of the onboarding process for new clients, and for working capital purposes. In connection with the registered direct offering, the Company has issued certain non-U.S. residents 734,440 common shares as finders fees. These common shares and the common shares issued in the private placement have been issued pursuant to an exemption from registration provided by Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, for transactions not involving a public offering and Rule 506(b) promulgated thereunder, as applicable.

Additionally, the Company advises that certain directors and officers of the Company participated in the registered direct offering and the private placement in an amount of $525,000 (the "Insider Participation"). The Insider Participation transaction is considered a "related party transaction" within the meaning of Canadian Securities Administrators Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61- 101"). The Company expects to rely on exemptions from the formal valuation and minority approval requirements in sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101 in respect of the Insider Participation.

The company has filed a prospectus with the Securities and Exchange Commission relating to the common shares issued in the registered direct offering, which can be viewed at www.sec.gov.
