TORONTO, March 11, 2022 /CNW/ – EMERGE Commerce Ltd. (TSXV: ECOM) (“EMERGE” or the “Company“), a diversified acquirer and operator of niche e-commerce brands, today announced that it has engaged Gravitas Securities Inc.

Under the terms of the Services Agreement, the Company shall pay to GSI $17,500 per month for the provision of the services during the term of the Services Agreement with $12,500 payable in cash, and $5,000 payable through the issuance of common shares in the capital of EMERGE (each a “Common Share“). The Company anticipates it will issue to GSI $30,000 of Common Shares on each of the six and twelve month anniversaries of the date of the Services Agreement. The Common Shares will be issued at a deemed price per Common Share equal to the greater of (a) the trailing 90-day volume weighted average price of the Common Shares on the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV“) calculated on a monthly basis in respect of the Common Share portion of each monthly retainer and (b) the maximum discounted price allowed by the TSXV.

The issuance of the Common Shares to GSI pursuant to the Services Agreement is subject to the approval of the TSXV. Any Common Shares issued to GSI will be subject to a hold period in accordance with Canadian securities laws. No new insiders will be created, nor will any change of control occur, as a result of the issuance of Common Shares to GSI pursuant to the Services Agreement.
