Working Capital Loans
The Company has been growing its Total Transaction Value (TTV) very strongly and there is a requirement for increased working capital to fund the T+2 settlements. The Company has entered into a number of related party loan agreements while it negotiates a longer-term working capital facility.
The Company’s subsidiary, Global Internet Ventures Pty Ltd. (“Global Internet”), has entered into loan agreements (collectively, the “Loan Agreements” and each a “Loan Agreement”) with each of Apollo Capital Management Pty Ltd. (“Apollo”) and Carosa Corporation BV (“CCBV”), pursuant to which Apollo and CCBV will provide Global Internet with a revolving credit facility in the principal sums of up to AUD$4,000,000 and AUD$2,000,000, respectively (the “Loans”). The credit facility with Apollo accrues interest at the rate of 30% per annum and the credit facility with CCBV accrues interest at the rate of 10% per annum and both Loans mature on November 30, 2024.
The Company is not issuing any securities, paying any bonus, commission, or finder’s fees in connection with the Loans and the Loans are not convertible, directly or indirectly, into equity or voting securities of the Company or a subsidiary of the Company. The Loans are repayable at any time without penalty.
Multilateral Instrument 61-101
Apollo and CCBV are affiliated companies of the Company’s Chairman, Domenic Carosa, and as a result, the entering into of the Loan Agreements constitute a “related party transaction” within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”). The Loans have been determined to be exempt from the requirements to obtain a formal valuation or minority shareholder approval based on sections 5.5(b) and 5.7(a) of MI 61-101, as the Company does not have securities listed or quoted on any of the specified markets listed in section 5.5(b) of MI 61-101 and at the time of the entering into of the Loan Agreements, the fair market value of the Loans does not exceed 25% of the Company’s market capitalization.
