VANCOUVER, May 30, 2019 – Universal mCloud Corp. (TSXV: MCLD) (OTCQB: MCLDF) (the “Company“) is pleased to announce a private placement offering of up to $10,000,000 aggregate principal amount of convertible unsecured subordinated debentures (the “Debentures“) at a price of $100 per Debenture (the “Offering“).

The Debentures will bear interest from each applicable issuance date at 10% per annum, calculated and paid quarterly on the last day of August, November, February and May of each year. The first interest payment will be made on August 31, 2019 and will consist of interest accrued from and including the closing of each tranche of the Offering (each, a “Closing Date“) to August 31, 2019. The Debentures will mature on the date that is 36 months following the initial Closing Date (the “Maturity Date“).

The principal amount of the Debentures will be convertible into units of the Company (the “Units“) at the option of the holder at any time prior to the close of business on the last business day immediately preceding the Maturity Date, at a conversion price of $0.50 per Unit (the “Conversion Price“), subject to adjustment in certain events. Holders converting their Debentures will receive accrued and unpaid interest thereon in cash for the period from and including the date of the latest interest payment date to, but excluding, the date of conversion.

Each Unit will be comprised of: (i) one common share of the Company (each, a “Common Share“); and (ii) one Common Share purchase warrant (each, a “Warrant“). Each Warrant will be exercisable to acquire one Common Share at an exercise price of $0.75 per Common Share, subject to adjustment in certain events, until the date that is the earlier of: (i) 60 months following the initial Closing Date; and (ii) the date specified in any Acceleration Notice (as defined below). Beginning on the date that is four months plus one day following the last Closing Date, but subject to receipt of any required approvals, the Company will have the right to accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants to a date which is not less than 21 days after the date on which a written notice is provided to the holders of Warrants should the daily volume weighted average trading price of the Common Shares be greater than $2.50 (subject to adjustment in certain events) for any 30 consecutive trading days on the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV“).

Beginning on the date that is four months plus one day following the last Closing Date, but subject to receipt of any required approvals, the Company may force the conversion of all of the principal amount of the then outstanding Debentures at the Conversion Price on not less than 21 days’ notice should the daily volume weighted average trading price of the Common Shares be greater than $2.50 (subject to adjustment in certain events) for any 30 consecutive trading days on the TSXV.

Upon a change of control of the Company, on the date that is not less than 30 days following the giving of notice of the change of control, the holders of Debenture shall, in their sole discretion, have the right to require the Company to, either: (i) purchase the Debentures at 100% of the principal amount thereof plus unpaid interest to the Maturity Date; or (ii) if the change of control results in a new issuer, convert the Debenture into a replacement debenture of the new issuer in the aggregate principal amount of 101% of the aggregate principal amount of the Debenture.

The net proceeds received by the Company will be used, in part, to: (a) satisfy all outstanding cash obligations of the Company in connection with (i) the Company’s previously announced acquisition of Flow Capital Corp.’s royalty interest in Agnity Global, and (ii) the Company’s proposed acquisition of CSA, Inc.; (b) fund ongoing working capital requirements; and (c) fund the proposed expansion of the Company’s business, including its international operations.

The Debenture will be offered and sold by private placement (i) in Canada to “accredited investors” within the meaning of NI 45-106 – Prospectus Exemptions and other exempt purchasers in each province of Canada, and (ii) outside Canada and the United States on a basis which does not require the qualification or registration of any of the Debentures or the Company. All securities issued under the Offering will be subject to a statutory four month hold period.

Closing of the Offering is subject to the satisfaction of customary conditions, including the approval of the TSXV.  The Offering is expected to be completed in multiple tranches, with the initial closing to occur on or about June 12, 2019.
