TORONTO, March 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — iSIGN Media Solutions Inc. (“iSIGN” or “Company”) (TSX-V: ISD) (OTC: ISDSF), a leading provider of interactive mobile proximity marketing and public security alert solutions, announced that it received final approval from the necessary regulatory agency to close its previously announced debt settlement arrangement (“Arrangement”) with various companies and individuals.
The Company has completed the Arrangement by issuing an aggregate of 7,222,277 common shares at a deemed price of $0.05 per share in settlement of debts owned of $361,114. Included in this transaction are various companies either wholly or partially owned and controlled by Josip (Joe) Kozar, a person that iSIGN shareholders have approved as a control person in the Company.
As a control person in the Company, Mr. Kozar is considered to be a “related party” to the Corporation as the term is defined in Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”). This transaction is exempt from the formal valuation and majority of minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 by virtue of the exemptions set forth in Sections 5.5(g) and 5.7(1)(e) of MI 61-101.
The closure of this shares for debt transaction completes the three-step process contemplated when the Forbearance Agreement with Mr. Kozar and others was announced on February 3, 2022, with the end goal of repositioning current debt into both equity and long-term debt and improving the Company’s Statements of Financial Position, while providing clarity and repayment certainty on a sizable portion of the Company’s debt.
The cumulative effect of these three steps is that iSIGN has eliminated approximately $1.091 million of debt and repositioned approximately $2.880 million from currently liabilities to long-term liabilities.
The Company has been receiving very favourable feedback from its resellers and clients to the new Passive Historical Contact Tracing (“PHACT”) and In-Home Health technology presentations that have been undertaken over the past two weeks.
Additional news will be released at a later date.
