NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / September 22, 2022 / Engine Gaming and Media, Inc. ("Engine" or the "Company") (NASDAQ:GAME)(TSXV:GAME), a data-driven, gaming, media and influencer marketing platform company, today announced that is has extended convertible debentures that were due to expire in October and November 2022 with an aggregate principal amount of US$1,250,000. The original convertible debentures had an annual interest rate of 10% per annum and a conversion price of US$8.90 per share.
In place of the expiring convertible debentures, the Company has issued a new convertible debenture with an aggregate principal amount of US$1,250,000 which expires on August 31, 2025, carries an annual interest rate of 7% per annum and is convertible into common shares of the Company at a conversion price of US$1.10 per share.
Each of the expiring convertible debentures and the replacement convertible debenture is beneficially held by a director of the Company. The participation of a director in the amendment of the convertible debentures constitutes a "related party transaction" as such term is defined by Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). The Company is relying on an exemption from the formal valuation requirements and the minority shareholder approval requirements under MI 61-101 as the fair market value of the amendment of the convertible debentures does not exceed 25% of the market capitalization of the Company.
