Interbit™ Announces Increase to Amount of Private Placement

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION OR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES.  FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH THIS RESTRICTION MAY CONSTITUTE A VIOLATION OF UNITED STATES SECURITIES LAWS.

CALGARY, Alberta and LONDON, March 06, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — INTERBIT LTD. (TSX Venture: IBIT) (the “Company”) announces that it has increased by 15% the maximum amount of its previously announced non-brokered private placement (the “Private Placement”) (see the Company’s February 18, 2020 press release), such that the proposed Private Placement shall now consist of a minimum of 6,666,666 common shares and a maximum of 11,500,000 common shares of the Company at a price of CAD$0.15 per share for minimum gross proceeds of CAD$1,000,000 and maximum gross proceeds of CAD$1,725,000.

The Company’s decision to increase the size of the proposed Private Placement was as a result of the interest shown in this proposed financing and its position that it should consider all opportunities for funding given the current uncertainty and volatility in the markets.

The net proceeds from the Private Placement will be used in connection with continued operations of the Company, payment of outstanding debts, examining what financial and strategic alternatives may be available to the Company and towards general and administrative expenses.

Any securities issued in connection with the Private Placement are subject to a hold period of four months and one day from the closing of the Private Placement. The Private Placement is subject to certain conditions, including approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV”).

The Company may pay a commission or finder’s fee to eligible parties in connection with the Private Placement, subject to the approval of the TSXV and compliance with applicable securities laws.

On 20th March Interbit Ltd announced its intention to complete a change of business to become a mining issuer.

The IIORC has therefore imposed a temporary suspension (halt) of trading in the security.

“Global economic developments have convinced us that unique mining opportunities – especially in the gold sector - will potentially unfold to allow the Company to deliver exceptional returns to our shareholders over the next 3-5 years,” said Brian Hinchcliffe, CEO of the Company. “The Company will use its cash position and management experience to find mining operations that combine low cost, long life production in politically safe jurisdictions. Alongside this new initiative and direction, the Company will continue to seek to commercialize the intellectual property it has accumulated as a technology company.”

Shareholder approval for the proposed COB Transaction, the Consolidation, the Name Change, and annual meeting matters will be sought by the Company at its Annual and Special Meeting of Shareholders called for June 24, 2020. For further information see Corporate & Investors
