The Corporation will not be proceeding with the previously proposed $0.05 Unit Private Placement subject to a TSXV submission of September 21, 2019.

All securities in the Private Placement are subject to a four-month hold period from closing.

The Corporation will continue to pursue completion of the maximum 12,000,000 Units in the Private Placement on or before January 20, 2020.

Insiders of the Corporation have participated in the Private Placement for a total amount of $244,400 (90%). Of particular note, CEO Robert Richardson participated in the amount of $105,000 and President and COO Sarshar Ahmad participated in the amount of $50,100.

On December 17, 2019, the Corporation made a $250,000 principal repayment to its lender, funded from the proceeds of the initial closing, with the Corporation improving its position under the Credit Facilities as follows:

  • The lender has provided $250,000 of debt forgiveness such that the reduction of the principal amount owing under the Credit Facilities totals $500,000;
  • The interest rate on the Credit Facilities has been reduced from 9.5 to 9.0 percent per annum effective December 17, 2019; and
  • Monthly amortization payments have been reduced from the recent increase to $125,000 in October, 2019 back to $100,000 effective December 31, 2019.

"The management team at Prospera is extremely pleased with the closing of the initial Private Placement and terms of the most recent arrangement with its lender." CEO Robert Richardson stated. "The funds raised through the Private Placement has allowed Prospera to greatly reduce its long-term debt while minimizing exposure to excessive dilution. This arrangement displays the Corporation's ongoing commitment to the continued overall growth strategy while maintaining balance and awareness of all stakeholder's interests."
