LAVAL, Québec, July 13, 2018—Urbanimmersive Inc. (“Urbanimmersive” or the “Corporation”) (TSX VENTURE: UI.V) (OTC PINK: UBMRF), the real estate content marketing platform, is pleased to announce that it has entered into a definitive purchase agreement on July 13, 2018, in connection with the previously announced acquisition (the “Acquisition”) of Tourbuzz, LLC (“Tourbuzz”), and that it completed its round of financing for the private placement of secured extendible convertible debentures, warrants and units (the “Private Placement”) which will be used to pay a portion of the cash component of the purchase price for the Acquisition. The remaining portion of the cash component of the purchase price for the Acquisition will be funded by a senior secured debt (the “Senior Secured Financing”).
Urbanimmersive will now work on closing the Private Placement and the Senior Secured Financing and putting in place all required security documents and registrations, which will require some processing time.
“The completion of the round of financing for the Private Placement and the signature of the definitive purchase agreement for the Acquisition represent a significant milestone for Urbanimmersive as we can now start planning the integration of Tourbuzz to our operations,” said the Corporation’s Chief Executive Officer, Ghislain Lemire. “Combined with our strong quarter over quarter organic growth and our memorandum of understanding ongoing discussion with one of the largest real estate portals in North America, I believe that Urbanimmersive has never been, after 10 years of existence, in a better position for growth. I can only be excited to think about what the future holds for Urbanimmersive,” concluded M. Lemire.
“After bootstrapping Tourbuzz into the leading real estate photography platform in the US & Canada, we began looking for ways to leverage our leadership position to bring even more value to our customers. By combining forces with Urbanimmersive, we gain not only a broader product portfolio but also access to the capital required to develop new products. The entire Tourbuzz team is excited about the opportunity to create more value for our combined customers,” declared Alan Pinstein, Tourbuzz’s Chief Executive Officer.
The Acquisition, which is still subject to customary closing conditions and the receipt of required regulatory approvals (including stock exchange), is expected to be completed in August 2018.
