Enablence Technologies Announces Completion of $4,000,000 Equity Financing
Ottawa, Canada – October 5, 2015 – Enablence Technologies Inc. (“Enablence” or the “Company”) (TSXV: ENA), a leading supplier of optical components and subsystems for access, metro and long-haul markets, today announced the closing of the last tranche of the financing announced on August 21, 2015 (the “Financing”), in the amount of $3,175,000 at a price of $0.05 per unit (“Unit). Each Unit is comprised of one common share and one half of one common share purchase warrant (“Warrants”). Each full Warrant is exercisable for a period of 18 months at an exercise price of $0.06 per Warrant. As a result, 63,500,000 shares and 31,750,000 Warrants were issued. The shares and Warrants are subject to a four month hold period expiring on February 6, 2016. In total, this Financing raised $4,000,000.
This Financing achieves one of the conditions that was set by a senior, investment grade lender for the provision of a loan facility of up to $3,000,000 (the “Loan Facility”). This condition was part of a “non-binding indication” letter. The Loan Facility is designed to finance purchase orders from ZTE Corporation to Enablence.
The proceeds from the Financing, as previously announced, will be used to help fund the Company’s growth, including the ability to meet increasing volume requirements from key customers and the ongoing research and development work and also to continue the process of debt reduction by repayment of certain unsecured short term loans and certain secured loan arrangements.
