OTTAWA, ON – (June 26, 2017) – betterU Education Corp. (TSX VENTURE: BTRU) (FRANKFURT: 5OGA), (the “Company” or “betterU”). Further to the news release dated May 12, 2017, betterU is pleased to announce an update to the non-brokered private placement.
The Company has decided to adjust the financing to tranche closings with the first tranche reduced to a minimum of $1,000,000 closing approximately $500,000 Monday June 26th followed by the remainder within the next 30 days. The adjustment of betterU’s investments and minimum tranching stems from a level of interest received from multiple strategic partners interested in investing who require additional time for due diligence. “There has been a lot of interest expressed in supporting betterU, however being able to align our business growth with ‘smart money’ partnerships that have deeper connections, vested interest in India is a much more attractive proposition for the Company,” said Brad Loiselle, President / CEO betterU.
All other terms of the financing will remain the same. The financing will consist of a minimum of 1,818,182 Units at $0.55 per unit. Each unit consists of a Common share and a ½ warrant (“Unit”). Each full warrant can be exercised for one year at a price of $0.80.
