Namaste Technologies Inc. ("Namaste" or the "Company") (CSE:N)(CSE:N.CN)(FRANKFURT:M5BQ) is pleased to announce the closing of its "bought deal" private placement for gross proceeds of $11,338,000.
Further to the Company's press releases on February 24, 2017 and February 28, 2017, the Company has completed its "bought deal" private placement with Eight Capital and Canaccord Genuity Corp. as co-lead underwriters and joint bookrunners, and including Beacon Securities Limited (together, the "Underwriters"), whereby a total of 45,352,000 units of the Company (the "Units") have been issued and sold, at a price per Unit of $0.25, for total gross proceeds of $11,338,000 (the "Offering").
