Vancouver, British Columbia, December 5, 2019 – Mogo Inc. (TSX:MOGO) (NASDAQ:MOGO) (“Mogo” or the “Company”), a financial technology company, today announced it has obtained a receipt for a final short form base shelf prospectus (the “Prospectus”) further to its filing of a preliminary short form base shelf prospectus, previously announced on November 7, 2019. Both documents have been filed with the securities regulators in each province and territory of Canada, except Quebec, and a corresponding shelf registration statement on Form F-10 (“Registration Statement”) has been filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) under the U.S.-Canada Multijurisdictional Disclosure System (“MJDS”).
These filings have been made by the Company to replace the short-form base shelf prospectus previously filed by Mogo Finance Technology Inc. (“Mogo Finance”), which can no longer be effectively utilized following the completion of the business combination between the Company and Mogo Finance. These filings enable Mogo to make offerings of common shares and debt securities of up to an aggregate initial offering price of C$100 million at any time during the 25-month period that the Prospectus remains effective (subject to MJDS eligibility).
The Registration Statement has been filed with the SEC, but is not yet effective. Securities may not be sold nor may offers to buy be accepted prior to the time the Registration Statement becomes effective. Copies of the Prospectus and the Registration Statement are available at www.sedar.com and www.sec.gov, respectively.
This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy securities, nor will there be any sale of the securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to the registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction.
If any securities are offered under the Prospectus and Registration Statement, the terms of any such securities and the intended use of the net proceeds resulting from such offering would be established at the time of any offering, and would be described in a prospectus supplement filed with the applicable Canadian securities commissions and with the SEC at the time of such an offering.
