VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 24, 2019 – LOOP Insights Inc. (TSX.V: MTRX) (the “Company” or “Loop”) today announces the rationale behind the non-brokered private placement at a price of $0.28 per unit for gross proceeds of up to $1M announced yesterday.
The Company’s original intention was to do a larger raise later in the Fall of 2019 as it anticipated substantial operational increases in order to put the support and management systems in place to meet the needs of several large-scale projects the Company has been engaged in. As discussions with two major business entities have progressed into proof-of-concept stage much earlier than anticipated, the Company has realized some of the investments into infrastructure need to be put in place sooner.
Loop’s potential partners have commenced their thorough due diligence on the Company. Part of due diligence is showing Loop’s ability to scale to the partners’ long-term business needs. The Company needs to add to its front-end support and tech development teams as well as additional back-end resources. There are several software management platforms that Loop will need to license and add to its support systems immediately. These licenses will have substantial upfront costs in order to start integration as soon as possible.
All of the above-mentioned means significant additional operational expenses, which originally weren’t expected until later in Q4. Therefore, Loop’s Management decided to initiate a small private placement offering to raise resources needed in due diligence requirements that will ultimately keep the Company in a place of strength and fuel the growth opportunities at hand.
Rob Anson, Founder & CEO of Loop, says: “While we understand that the timing of the placement is not ideal, management is trying to be proactive in putting these resources together to support the business opportunities Loop has been engaged in. This will give our large customers confidence in Loop’s ability to support their needs while presenting exceptional market growth opportunities for the Company.”
