Ynvisible Interactive Inc. (the “Company” or “Ynvisible”) (TSX-V: YNV, FSE: 1XNA, OTCQB: YNVYF) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a securities purchase agreement for a private placement of its common shares (“Common Shares”) and warrants to purchase Common Shares (“Warrants”) to institutional investors only for aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of approximately Cdn$12 million (the “Private Placement”). Pursuant to the Private Placement, the Company will issue up to 19,992,003 Common Shares and Warrants to purchase up to 19,992,003 Common Shares at a purchase price of Cdn$0.61 per Common Share and associated Warrant. Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share at an exercise price of Cdn$0.76 per Common Share at any time prior to the three-year anniversary of the closing date of the Private Placement (the “Closing Date”).
A.G.P./Alliance Global Partners (the “Agent”) is acting as the exclusive placement agent for the private placement in the United States.
The Common Shares and Warrants to be issued under the Private Placement will be qualified by way of a prospectus supplement under the Company's base shelf prospectus dated May 10, 2021 (collectively, the “Prospectus Supplement”) which will be filed in each of the provinces of Canada, except Québec. In the United States, the Common Shares, Warrants and the shares issuable upon the exercise of the Warrants will be offered on a private placement basis pursuant to exemptions from the registration requirements of the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “U.S. Securities Act”), and certain other jurisdictions in accordance with applicable securities laws.
The Agent shall receive, on the Closing Date, (i) a cash commission equal to 7.0% of the aggregate gross proceeds received from the sale of the Common Shares and Warrants, and (ii) warrants (the “Agent’s Warrants”) equal to 5.0% of the Common Shares sold in the Private Placement. Each Agent’s Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to acquire one Common Share at an exercise price of Cdn$0.61 per Common Share for a period of 36 months following the Closing Date.
The net proceeds of the Private Placement are expected to be used by the Company for working capital and general corporate purposes. Details as to the specific allocation of the proceeds will be disclosed in the Prospectus Supplement.
The Company expects the Closing Date to occur on or about May 18, 2021. The Company will apply to list the Common Shares issued in the Private Placement and the Common Shares underlying the Warrants on the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV”). The Private Placement is subject to the satisfaction of certain customary closing conditions, including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary regulatory and stock exchange approvals (including, for certainty, the acceptance of the TSXV).
No securities will be offered for sale or sold to Canadian residents.
This news release shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of any of the securities in any jurisdiction in Canada in connection with the Private Placement. This news release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of the securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction.

The securities have not been, nor will they be, registered under the U.S. Securities Act and such securities may not be offered or sold within the United States absent registration under U.S. federal and state securities laws or an applicable exemption from such U.S. registration requirements.
