Announces Closing CAD $1,018,955 Oversubscribed Non-Brokered Private Placement Units Offering
VANCOUVER, BC, CANADA – TheNewswire - JANUARY 7, 2021, LINK GLOBAL TECHNOLOGIES INC. (CSE:LNK) (CNSX:LNK.CN) (FRA:LGT) (OTC:LGLOF) (“LINK” or the “Company”), an innovative power and infrastructure solutions provider for Bitcoin mining and data hosting operations, is pleased to announce the closing of its non-brokered private placement (the “Financing”) previously announced on December 23, 2020, by issuing 2,911,300 units (each, a “Unit”) at a price of CAD $0.35 per Unit for the total gross proceeds of CAD $1,018,955. Each Unit consists of one common share of the Company (each, a “Share”) and one-half of one transferable common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional Share at a price of CAD $0.50 per Share for a period of 18 months from the date of closing of the Financing.
The Company paid finders’ fees of CAD $47,886 and issued 136,818 finders’ warrants, each of which entitles the holder to purchase one Share at a price of CAD $0.50 for 18 months from the date of closing of the Financing. All securities issued in the Financing are subject to a four-month hold period expiring May 8, 2021.
Link intends to use the net proceeds from the Financing for:
- The commissioning of new 10 Megawatt (MW) power sites in Alberta. Link is generating power from dormant and stranded natural gas assets, and supplying this power via fixed-price contracts to its clients, which include Bitcoin miners and data hosting operations. This site will generate an additional revenue of USD $350,000 per month for Link, as previously announced in a press release dated January 4, 2021.
- The acquisition of up to 1600 ASICS Miners from an undisclosed party, which the Company will use to mine its own supply of Bitcoin.
- Marketing and general working capital purposes.
Link President and Chief Executive Officer Stephen Jenkins commented, “We are very pleased with the level of interest in Link’s latest financing, and we appreciate the support from our new and existing shareholders. We are executing on our business plan as previously outlined in March 2020, and have since secured over 20 Megawatts (MW) of power-generating assets, of which 8.5 MW has been in operation since June 2020, generating revenues in excess of USD $1.5 million (unaudited) for the Company. We are now in a position to mobilize our own fleet of crypto mining machines to self-mine for Bitcoin, with the added advantage of leveraging our growing supply of low-cost, reliable power, generated from dormant and stranded natural gas assets. Link has substantial experience in operating crypto mining machines and the Company looks forward to commencing its Bitcoin mining operations in the near future.”
