DelphX Announces Completion of Private Placement Funding

Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – July 10, 2023) – DelphX Capital Markets Inc. (TSXV: DELX) (OTCQB: DPXCF) (“DelphX“), a leader in the development of new classes of structured products for the fixed income market, announced that, further to its news release of June 29, 2023 announcing the closing of the first tranche of its non-brokered private placement of units, DelphX has now terminated the private placement and therefore will not be closing further tranches of the private placement.

DelphX announced on June 29, 2023, the successful closing of the issuance of 5,425,000 Units at a subscription price of C$0.08 per Unit for gross proceeds of C$434,000. Each Unit consists of one common share (“Common Share”) and one Common Share purchase warrant (“Warrant”). Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one Common Share at a price of C$0.15, for a period of two years from the date of issuance. The securities issued will be subject to a hold period of four months plus one day from the date of issuance. DelphX intends to use the net proceeds for working capital and general corporate purposes.

The Company originally planned to issue up to 18,750,000 units, but opted for a less dilutive funding level that would be sufficient to complete the launch of its novel Credit Rating Security (CRS) product, which will give bond holders and traders the ability to position against potential rating changes on existing bonds.

“Launching a new product category in the fixed income market involves a high level of legal and industry-specific expertise and expense,” said DelphX CEO Patrick Wood. “Throughout this development process we have maintained a policy of prudent funding, but that strategy is particularly important now that we are on the cusp of commercialization. These funds will enable us to complete the final launch requirements for our industry-first solution for managers in the world’s largest financial markets.”

Insiders participated in the private placement for 5,050,000 Units, and as a result the offering is considered a “related party transaction” within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”). DelphX has relied on the exemptions from the formal valuation and minority approval requirements of MI 61-101 contained in sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101 in respect of related party participation, as neither the fair market value of the securities issued to insiders nor the cash consideration paid for such securities exceeded 25% of DelphX’s market capitalization. A material change report was not filed more than 21 days prior to closing as the participation of insiders and the extent of such participation was not finalized until shortly prior to the completion of the offering.

In connection with the closing of the private placement, DelphX will pay cash finder’s fees of C$16,000 and issue 200,000 finders’ warrants (the “Finder’s Warrants”) to AlphaNorth Asset Management, an eligible finder. The Finder’s Warrants will be exercisable at C$0.15 each for a period of two years after issuance.
