TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / December 22, 2020 / KABN Systems NA Holdings Corp. (CSE:KABN) (the "Company" or "KABN North America" or "KABN NA"), a Canadian Fintech company that specializes in continuous online identity verification, management and monetization in Canada and the U.S., is pleased to announce that it has closed its Non-Brokered Private Placement of units ("Units") for gross proceeds of approximately $3 Million (the "Non-Brokered Offering") previously announced on December 10, 2020. A total of 19,999,997 Units were issued at a purchase price of $0.15 per Unit, with each Unit comprised of one common share of the Company (a "Common Share") and one Common Share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each Warrant is exercisable to acquire one Common Share (a "Warrant Share") at an exercise price of $0.20 per Warrant Share for a period of 24 months from the closing. The Units will have a hold period of four months and one day from the applicable closing.
"We are pleased to welcome a number of new investors and financial services firms as Company shareholders. The interest in the offering was in excess of the available units, even after the increase in the offering from $2 Million to $3 Million," said David Lucatch, CEO. "We would also like to welcome Mr. Rob Anson, CEO of Loop Insights Inc., and Mr. Sheldon Inwentash, Founder, Chairman and CEO of ThreeD Capital, both as new investors in KABN NA and as members of our Industry Advisory Committee to support the Company with its future growth."
In connection with the Non-Brokered Offering, the Company paid finder's fee in the aggregate sum of $130,620 and issued 990,800 compensation options (the "Finders' Options") to certain eligible finders. Each Finders' Option entitles the holder to purchase one Unit at an exercise price equal to C$0.15 per Unit at any time up to 24 months following closing.
The Company's previously announced brokered private placement of up to $1.15 Million is expected to close on or about December 29, 2020, or on such earlier date as agreed upon between the Company and the agent, and is subject to certain conditions, including receipt of subscription agreements and payment of the subscription amounts by subscribers.
The securities described herein have not been, and will not be, registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "U.S. Securities Act"), or any state securities laws, and accordingly, may not be offered or sold within the United States except in compliance with the registration requirements of the U.S. Securities Act and applicable state securities requirements or pursuant to exemptions therefrom.

Update on Family Office Financing
With respect to the US-led Family Office financing originally announced on August 18, 2020, with subsequent updates made on September 16, and October 22, 2020, the subscribers have failed to date to fund their commitments. On December 8, 2020, the Company delivered demand letters to the subscribers, demanding that they close by December 11, 2020. Having failed to do so, the Company views these agreements as being at an end, and has demanded that the subscribers reimburse the Company for the costs it has incurred in respect of these subscriptions. The Company is reserving its rights to take further action in the future.
