Facedrive Inc. ("Facedrive") (TSXV: FD), a Canadian "people-and-planet first" technology ecosystem, announces a non-brokered private placement of up to 1,481,481 common shares of the Company ("Shares"), for aggregate gross proceeds of up to $20,000,000 at a price of $13.50 per Share (the "Offering"). There will be no warrants issued as part of the Offering; all shares acquired by a placee will be subject to a four-month hold period from the date of issuance.
The Offering follows growing demand for the Company's TraceSCAN wearable contact-tracing products due to increased engagement with various governments and multinational corporations, who are extremely concerned with the devastating impact of the second and future waves of the global pandemic COVID-19 on the health and safety of their constituents and stakeholders. As announced earlier, the Company has also experienced significant growth in its Food Delivery division as the global pandemic has continued to increase demand for food delivery. As such, Facedrive will be using the proceeds of the Offering to service pent-up demand for its TraceScan products and services, Facedrive Foods vertical, continue expansion of its Transportation-as-a-Service business throughout North America (including Steer EV, its electric vehicle subscription business currently operating in Washington DC), and general working capital purposes.
Completion of the Offering is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
Facedrive is a multi-faceted "people-and-planet first" tech ecosystem offering socially-responsible services to local communities with a strong commitment to doing business fairly, equitably and sustainably. As part of this commitment, Facedrive's vision is to fulfil its mandate through a number of verticals that either leverage existing technologies of the Company or project synergies with existing lines of business (the "Facedrive Verticals"). The Facedrive Verticals include its rideshare business ("Facedrive Rideshare"), sustainable e-commerce platform ("Facedrive Marketplace"), food-delivery service ("Facedrive Foods"), e-social platform ("Facedrive Social") and its contact-tracing and health services business ("Facedrive Health").
Facedrive Rideshare was among the first to offer a wide variety of environmentally and socially responsible solutions in the Transportation as a Service (TaaS) space, planting thousands of trees based on user consumption and offering choices between electric, hybrid and conventional vehicles (including, more recently, electric and hybrid vehicles on a subscription basis through Steer). Facedrive Marketplace offers curated merchandise created from sustainably sourced materials. Facedrive Foods offers contactless delivery of a wide variety of foods right to consumers' doorsteps, with a focus on doing so in a socially and environmentally-conscious manner. Facedrive Social strives to keep people connected in a physically-distanced world through its HiQ and other e-socialization platforms that invite users to interact based on common interests and by offering gamification and mutual community support features. Facedrive Health strives to develop and offer innovative technological solutions to the most acute health challenges including its proprietary TraceSCAN wearable technology for contact tracing. Facedrive envisions changing the ridesharing, food delivery, e-commerce, social and health tech narratives for the better, for everyone, and is currently operational in Canada and the United States.
