Calgary, Alberta (April 27, 2009): Intermap Technologies Corporation (the "Company") today announced the closing of the offering by short form prospectus as previously announced on April 7, 2009. The Company sold 5,000,000 units ("Units") at a price of C$2.00 per Unit through Canaccord Capital Corporation (“Canaccord”) pursuant to an underwriting agreement dated April 13, 2009. Each Unit consists of one common share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant will be exercisable at a price of C$3.00 for a period of one year from the closing date into an additional common share.
The offering resulted in total gross proceeds to Intermap of C$10,000,000. The net proceeds from the financing will be used for general corporate purposes. The Company granted to Canaccord an over-allotment option (the "Over-Allotment Option"), exercisable for a period of 30 days following the closing of the offering, to purchase up to that number of Units equal to 15% of the number of Units issued pursuant to the offering. In the event that the Over-Allotment Option is exercised in full, the total gross proceeds to Intermap will increase to approximately C$11,500,000.
Application has been made for all common shares issued or issuable pursuant to the offering to be admitted to trading on AIM and listed on the TSX. It is expected that dealings on AIM will begin on April 28, 2009. Subsequent to the April 27, 2009 closing, Intermap has 51,188,713 common shares in issue, none of which are held in treasury.
Brian Bullock, Intermap's president and CEO stated, “We are very pleased with the continuing support we have received from the investment communities in Canada, the United States, and Europe. The funds raised will allow us to increase our working capital and strengthen the Company's balance sheet to better position ourselves to take advantage of opportunities that may be presented. This positioning is especially important in light of current and forecasted macro-economic conditions. The wide range of solutions that can be created through GIS applications by having access to a high-quality and uniform set of 3D data is continuing to expand.
