Increases access to institutional investors and lowers the cost of capital
Positions the Company to execute on growth opportunities
DENVER – Intermap Technologies (TSX: IMP; OTCQX: ITMSF) (“Intermap” or the “Company”), a global leader in geospatial content development and intelligence solutions, today announced that it has obtained final receipt and filed a final short form base shelf prospectus with the securities commissions in each of the provinces of Canada, other than Quebec.
Intermap filed the prospectus to give it flexibility to take advantage of financing opportunities as they may arise and as the Company deems appropriate, subject to market conditions and other relevant factors. Global capital markets can change quickly due to macro events unrelated to Intermap’s attractive business opportunities. The base shelf prospectus will ensure that Intermap is front-footed in the capital markets. This filing is a natural evolution as the Company rapidly matures into a global and profitable organization. Intermap intends to use the net proceeds from the sale of securities to continue to pursue its growth strategy, which includes, among other things, financing for future acquisitions and to enhance profitable organic growth.
This filing allows the Company to offer and issue up to CDN$20,000,000 of common shares, preferred shares, debt securities, subscription receipts, warrants or units, or a combination thereof, during the 25-month period that the base shelf prospectus remains effective. The Corporation has undertaken not to complete an offering of securities under the base shelf prospectus unless it raises at least US$1,800,000 under the base shelf or a private placement within 90 days following the issuance the final receipt. There is no certainty that any securities will be offered or sold under the prospectus.
Patrick A. Blott, Intermap’s Chairman and CEO, said, “We now have additional financial flexibility and efficient access to institutional capital and will be ready to close on capital raisings quickly when access to capital is available on reasonable terms. With this base shelf prospectus in place, Intermap is well-positioned to pursue important growth opportunities and new initiatives, as well as execute on and convert our growing pipeline.”
The securities may be offered in amounts, at prices and on terms to be determined based on market conditions at the time of sale, subject to applicable regulations. The specific terms of any offerings, including the use of proceeds, will be set forth in one or more shelf prospectus supplement(s) to be filed with applicable securities regulators. There can be no assurance that any securities will be offered or sold as a result of this base shelf prospectus.
The securities have not been registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements. 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.
