InfoSonics Announces Completion of Financing Transaction
SAN DIEGO, January 22, 2018 – InfoSonics Corporation (the “Company”)(NASDAQ: IFON) announced today that on January 19, 2018 the Company entered into a securities purchase agreement for the sale of $1 million face value of three year 0% convertible notes and warrants with accredited investors affiliated with Cooltech Holding Corp. (“Cooltech”). The Company will use the proceeds of the offering to pay Company expenses related to the merger with Cooltech and for general corporate purposes.
Vernon A. LoForti, InfoSonics’ Chief Financial Officer, commented: “Since it was announced on July 26, 2017, InfoSonics and Cooltech have been working diligently to complete the merger of our companies. However, progress was hindered as Cooltech worked with its auditors to obtain pre-acquisition audited financial statements required by the Securities and Exchange Commission of certain entities it recently acquired in a series of roll-up transactions. We now expect to close the transaction in March 2018.”
The notes are convertible into an aggregate of 570,287 shares of common stock of the Company and the warrants are exercisable for 570,287 shares of common stock of the Company at an exercise price of $1.83 per share. The notes bear no interest but contain customary default terms, which would accelerate repayment of the principal amount outstanding and not converted into common stock at the time of the default. The warrants will be exercisable commencing six months from January 19, 2018 and have a term of exercise equal to three years.
Under NASDAQ Listing Rule 5635, the Company may not issue securities representing more than 19.99% of the outstanding common stock of the Company prior to receiving stockholder approval. If the Company does not obtain stockholder approval for this offering, the notes and warrants issued pursuant to the securities purchase agreement will not be convertible or exercisable in excess of 19.99% of the outstanding common stock of the Company and the Company will be required to resubmit a proposal to the stockholders at least every 120 days. In certain circumstances, the Company may also be subject to certain liquidated damages of up to 1% of the aggregate value of the notes for each month in which the Company fails to obtain stockholder approval up to an aggregate of 12%. The requirement to obtain stockholder approval for the offering is not contingent on the consummation of the merger with Cooltech.
