MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 14, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cachet Financial Solutions, Inc. (OTCQB:CAFN), a leading provider of mobile money technologies to banks, credit unions and alternative financial services (AFS) providers, announced today that it has entered into an equity purchase agreement with Lincoln Park Capital Fund, LLC (“LPC”), a Chicago-based institutional investor. Under the terms of the purchase agreement, Cachet will have the right and the sole discretion to sell to LPC up to $10 million worth of shares of Cachet’s common stock in amounts as set forth in the agreement, once a registration statement relating to the transaction has been declared effective. Cachet will control the timing and amount of any sales of shares to LPC and LPC will be obligated to make purchases in accordance with the agreement.
“We are pleased to enter into this purchase agreement with LPC, an existing investor in Cachet that has participated in every raise since our IPO,” commented Jeffrey Mack, president and CEO of Cachet. “This commitment provides our Company with additional means of accessing capital to fund growth in our business, and as such, provides the Company added financial strength and flexibility.”
Under the terms of the purchase agreement and related registration rights agreement, Cachet has agreed to file a registration statement with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) covering the sale of the shares that may be issued to LPC.
There are no upper limits to the price LPC may pay to purchase common stock from Cachet, and the purchase price of the shares related to any future investments will be based on the prevailing market prices of the Company’s shares immediately preceding the notice of sale to LPC. LPC has agreed not to cause or engage in any manner whatsoever, any direct or indirect short selling or hedging of the Company’s shares of common stock. In consideration for entering into the agreement, Cachet has issued shares of common stock to LPC as a commitment fee. The agreement may be terminated by Cachet at any time, at its sole discretion, without any monetary cost or penalty.
A more detailed description of the agreement is set forth in the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K recently filed with the SEC which the Company encourages be reviewed carefully.
