RYU Apparel Announces Units for Debt Transaction

PR Newswire

VANCOUVER, Nov. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ - RYU Apparel Inc. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: RYU & Frankfurt Stock Exchange: RYA), a global, tailored urban athletic apparel and accessories brand engineered for the fitness, training and performance of the multi-discipline athlete, announces its intention to settle debt (the "Debt Settlement") in the amount of $710,000 owed by the Company to Marcello Leone, the Company's CEO, President and Chairman of the Board, in exchange for 5,680,000 units of the Company (each, a "Unit"). Each Unit will be issued at a deemed price of $0.125 and will consist of one common share and one share purchase warrant (each, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant shall entitle Mr. Leone to purchase one additional common share at a price of $0.20 per share for a period of two (2) years from closing, subject to an acceleration provision. The proposed Debt Settlement is subject to final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

As the Units will be issued to a director and officer of the Company, the Debt Settlement will constitute a "related party transaction" within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). The board of directors of the Company (the "Board") has determined that neither the value of the Units to be issued nor the aggregate debt to be settled in connection with the Debt Settlement will exceed 25% of the Company's market capitalization on the date hereof. As a result, the Debt Settlement is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101.
