Calgary, Alberta, (December 10, 2018) – Ivrnet Inc. (TSXV: IVI) (“Ivrnet” or the “Corporation”) has signed a term sheet with Mobile Royalties Corp. (“Mobile Royalty”), a private equity firm, for the sale of a royalty on future NexText revenues. In the term sheet, Mobile Royalty agrees to pay Ivrnet $900,000 for a 40% share in NexText revenues that will decrease to 15% upon Mobile Royalty receiving $1.8M of royalty payments over the next two years. Should it take longer than two years for Mobile Royalty to receive $1.8M of royalty payments, the revenue share will drop from 40% to 15% upon $2.7M of royalty payments being completed. As part of the Mobily Royalty deal, Ivrnet retains the rights to repurchase the long term royalty stream – once the royalty has decreased to 15% – at 3x the annualized previous three months Royalty payments. Royalty purchase is at Ivrnet’s option. No finder’s fees, broker’s fees and/or commissions will be paid in connection with the royalty sale.
“Ivrnet is pleased to find a partner to assist with the growth of the NexText Mobile Advertising platform”, states Chris Topolniski, Ivrnet COO. “Capital raised through this royalty deal will provide considerable resources to the sales and marketing of NexText, accelerating growth significantly faster than we could otherwise do. With faster growth we expect to generate more net revenue for Ivrnet, even factoring in the royalty sharing.”
Use of proceeds from the royalty sale will be restricted to sales, marketing, development or other efforts that advance the NexText platform.
“Mobile Royalty is yet another strategic partnership to close out 2018”, adds David Snell, Ivrnet CEO. “The Mobile Royalty partnership adds to the recently announced sales partnerships with Imagine Wireless and Altitude Communications, as well as the most recently announced technology and sales partnership with BiLDIT.”
“Mobile Royalty adds a non-dilutive, non interest bearing financial partner to our recent initiatives, providing a key component to our stated goal of increasing sales activities 10 fold in 2019 over the beginning of 2018. We are thrilled to have this opportunity to add to the resources of Ivrnet without incurring dilution to our shareholders,” concludes Snell.
The Mobile Royalty deal is expected to complete towards the end of December 2018 or early 2019. As previously mentioned, no commissions or fees will be paid by Ivrnet in connection with this sale.
