NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWS WIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE U.S.
BIG Blockchain Intelligence Group Inc. (CSE:BIGG)(CSE:BIGG.CN)(CNSX:BIGG) (the “Company” or “BIG”) is pleased to announce that it has amended the terms of its previously announced bought deal with an increase to 22,670,000 common shares (the “Shares”) at a price of $0.75 per Share (the “Offering Price”) for aggregate gross proceeds to BIG of $17,002,500 (the “Offering”). The Offering will be underwritten by a syndicate of underwriters led by GMP Securities L.P. and including Canaccord Genuity Corp., Cormark Securities Inc., Haywood Securities Inc., and PI Financial Corp.
The Underwriters will also have the option, exercisable up to two business days prior to the closing date of the Offering, to arrange for the purchase of up to an additional 3,400,500 common shares at the Offering Price for additional gross proceeds of up to $2,550,375. In the event that the option is exercised in its entirety, the aggregate gross proceeds would increase to $19,552,875.
The terms of the financing and use of proceeds remain as previously disclosed in all other respects.
“We are pleased that as a result of strong investor demand, we were able to secure a financing of $17.0 million plus the over-allotment option to fund the growth of the Company, which is in-line with our original financing objectives. The initial $10.0 million size provided a good starting point to solicit interest given the lack of trading history for BIG.” stated Lance Morginn, CEO of BIG Blockchain Intelligence Group Inc.
