TORONTO, May 19, 2022 /CNW/ – Swarmio Media Holdings Inc. (CSE: SWRM) (OTC: SWMIF) (‘Swarmio’ or ‘the Company’), a technology company focused on the global deployment of its proprietary gaming and esports platform via its telecom operator (“telco”) partners, announces its intention to complete a non-brokered insider-led private placement of up to $1,000,000.
“Swarmio’s patented plug-and-play Ember gaming and esports platform enables telcos to offer a turn-key gaming service quickly and efficiently to all their customers, allowing telcos to participate in the $200 billion gaming market and increase their average revenue per user (ARPU),” commented Vijai Karthigesu, CEO of Swarmio. “Large telcos have recently partnered with Swarmio, leveraging our business proposition and technology so they can monetize gamers. We expect these partnerships to translate into revenue growth for Swarmio in the coming months and years. Following our successful telecom launch with Globe in the Philippines to their 85 million subscribers, we expect to continue to deploy the Ember platform in new regions with additional world-leading telcos this year. I want to thank our whole team for their commitment to the Company as we embark on capturing this untapped opportunity.”
The non-brokered private placement will consist of up to 10,000,000 common shares at a price of $0.10 per share. It is expected that the private placement will close within the next week. The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the private placement for short term working capital and general working capital requirements. Swarmio may need to raise additional funds in the near term to support its operations as it looks forward to revenues beginning to flow from recently announced customer activities.
All securities issued will be subject to a four-month and one day hold period. Closing of the private placement is subject to the Company entering into subscriptions with the investors and other customary closing conditions.
