VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / April 15, 2021 / ZoomAway Travel Inc. (TSXV:ZMA) (US:ZMWYF) (the “Company” or “ZMA“) www.zoomaway.com is pleased to announce that, further to its press release dated March 23, 2021, the change of its name to ZoomAway Technologies Inc. (the “Name Change“) and the consolidation of all of its issued and outstanding common shares on the basis of one (1) post-consolidated common share for every nine (9) pre-consolidated common shares (the “Consolidation“) will take effect as of Friday, April 16, 2021 (the “Effective Date“).

The Company’s consolidated common shares will begin trading under the new name on the TSX Venture Exchange at the opening of trading on the Effective Date. The Company will continue to trade under its current symbol of “ZMA”. The new ISIN and CUSIP numbers for the Company’s common shares following the Name Change and Consolidation are CA98980C1014 and 98980C101, respectively.

The Consolidation will result in the number of issued and outstanding common shares being reduced from the current outstanding 153,360,338 to approximately 17,040,038 common shares, and each shareholder will hold the same percentage of common shares outstanding immediately after the Consolidation as such shareholder held immediately prior to the Consolidation. The exercise price and number of common shares of the Company issuable upon the exercise of outstanding stock options, warrants or other convertible securities will be proportionately adjusted to reflect the Consolidation in accordance with the terms of such securities.

No fractional shares will be issued as a result of the Consolidation. All fractions of common shares post-Consolidation will be rounded down to the next lowest whole number if the first decimal place is less than five and rounded up to the next highest whole number if the first decimal place is five or greater. No cash consideration will be paid in respect of fractional shares.

Registered shareholders of record as at the Effective Date will receive a letter of transmittal from the Company’s transfer agent providing instructions for the exchange of their common shares as soon as practicable following the Effective Date.

Non-registered shareholders holding common shares through an intermediary (a securities broker, dealer, bank or financial institution) should be aware that the intermediary may have different procedures for processing the Consolidation than those that have been put in place by the Company for registered shareholders.

ZoomAway Expands Technology For Use With Fintech

By | Press Releases | No Comments

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / March 30, 2021 / ZoomAway Travel Inc. (TSXV:ZMA)(OTCQB:ZMWYF) (the “Company” or “ZMA“) www.zoomaway.com. Under the guidance of its new Board of Directors, who bring decades of experience within various business sectors, the Company is pleased to announce the creation of a new subsidiary, Zoom Tech Incorporated. ZMA has made the commitment to expand and develop new software platforms and services that will diversify its revenue within various technology markets. ZMA’s well established payment platforms (see companies like Paysafe® and Square®) and its multitude of existing technological assets have inspired the pursuit of these cross-market opportunities. Zoom Tech will cultivate unique, relevant, and progressive technologies, not only within its core hospitality sector, but within new markets desperate for innovation.

In addition to acquisitions, the Company has several strategic projects underway. We are taking aim at opportunities within the financial technologies, and gaming markets while building upon our hospitality expertise. All of these avenues are expected to become the building blocks upon which these innovative subsidiaries will be built.

As part of this process, the Company has taken its social relevance software and is expanding the core of this technology into a broad range of new products. The first new project fits the Financial Technology (Fintech) sector and is called LoanCache. It is an aggregating website similar to Kayak® and Trivago® or in the loan industry, Lending Tree® and NerdWallet®.

LoanCache will allow consumers to easily find, compare reviews, and apply for a much wider range of loan types than any other sites. In addition, using our “social relevance” toolset, LoanCache will provide customers with the right tools to find legitimate and socially conscious lenders in the signature, title, payday, credit card, and mortgage loan industries. LoanCache will deliver revenues by way of advertising, marketing services and big data.

Company CEO Sean Schaeffer stated, “We are giving equal attention to all of our products. We are excited to have both the funding and the team to pursue multiple projects at the same time. We are working towards providing some exciting presentation materials to our shareholders in the upcoming days and weeks.”

Newly Elected Board Announces Intention To Change Name, Consolidates Shares, And Focus On Maximum Shareholder Value

By | Press Releases | No Comments

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / March 23, 2021 / ZoomAway Travel Inc. (TSXV:ZMA) (OTCQB:ZMWYF) (the “Company” or “ZMA“) www.zoomaway.com, is pleased to announce that it will be seeking the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV“) to change its name to ZoomAway Technologies Inc. (the “Name Change“) and to consolidate all of its issued and outstanding common shares on the basis of one (1) post-consolidated common share for every nine (9) pre-consolidated common shares (the “Consolidation“).

The Name Change was previously approved by the Company’s shareholders on December 16, 2020. In accordance with the Company’s articles, shareholder approval of the Consolidation will not be required. The Consolidation has been approved by resolution of the Company’s board of directors.

The intended Consolidation would result in the number of issued and outstanding common shares being reduced from the current outstanding 153,360,338 to approximately 17,040,038 common shares. The Company also has outstanding warrants to purchase 29,035,611 common shares reserved for issuance and stock options to purchase 3,855,000 common shares reserved for issuance, equal to a total of approximately 3,654,512 common shares on a post-Consolidation basis.

No fractional shares will be issued as a result of the Consolidation. All fractions of common shares post-Consolidation will be rounded down to the next lowest whole number if the first decimal place is less than five and rounded up to the next highest whole number if the first decimal place is five or greater. No cash consideration will be paid in respect of fractional shares.

The Company’s board of directors believes that the Consolidation will provide the Company with greater flexibility for the continued development of its business and the growth of the Company, including financing arrangements and future acquisitions.

There is no change of business associated with the Name Change and Consolidation. The Company intends to grow its revenue streams by seizing opportunities through acquisitions. The Company’s new board of directors has a broad skill set including expertise in: Cannabis technology, FinTech, Payment solutions, white label applications, API integration, database management and E-Gaming. While the Company utilizes its skill set primarily in the hospitality industry and will continue to do so, it will also pursue other applications aimed at increasing overall profitability.

“2020 was a difficult year for the travel industry, and 2021 is slowly getting better”, stated Sean Schaeffer, CEO of ZMA. “We want to make sure that we are searching out every avenue to increase revenues and profits, build shareholder value and develop a family of companies with specialized technologies as their common thread. Rest assured we are not abandoning any of our great projects like ZoomedOUT but see many potential money makers for our technology infrastructure in other industries which could result in significant growth.”

Schaeffer continued, “Over the last few months we have been looking into acquisition targets. The Pandemic has taught us very valuable lesson about the need for diversification, and we aim to have a well-rounded portfolio of subsidiaries that provide services in good times and bad. With our recent loan facility and the on-going commitment of AIP, we have sufficient funding to execute multiple acquisitions as they present themselves. We are very excited about this partnership and the outlook for this business.”

Both the Name Change and the Consolidation are subject to the receipt of all required regulatory approvals, including the approval of the TSXV, the provisions of the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia) and the articles of the Company. The Company will be obtaining a new set of CUSIP and ISIN numbers for the Name Change and Consolidation. The effective date for the Name Change and the Consolidation and the new CUSIP and ISIN numbers will be disclosed in a subsequent press release. The Company anticipates that its current trading symbol will remain unchanged. The board of directors may, at its discretion, determine to amend the terms or to not move forward with the Name Change and/or Consolidation.

Each warrant is exercisable for a period of 60 months from the date of issuance at an exercise price of $0.05 each. After giving effect to the Debt Settlement, the Company has a total of approximately 153,360,338 shares issued and outstanding, with AIP holding approximately 45.00% on an undiluted basis.

The Debt Settlement has resulted in the creation of AIP as a new “Control Person” (as such term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV“)) of the Company. In accordance with the policies of the TSXV, the disinterested shareholders of the Company overwhelming approved the Debt Settlement and the creation of a new “Control Person” in AIP at the Company’s annual and special meeting of shareholders held on December 16, 2020.

All of the securities issued pursuant to the Debt Settlement are subject to a hold period of four months and one day from the date of issuance.

The pricing of the common shares issuable pursuant to the Debt Settlement is in reliance of the temporary relief measures established by the TSXV on April 8, 2020, and extended by the TSXV on September 16, 2020 and December 15, 2020, providing for temporary relief measures to its Policy 4.3, lowering the minimum pricing from $0.05 to $0.01 per share for shares issued pursuant to a debt settlement where the market price of an issuer’s shares is not greater than $0.05.

In connection with the Debt Settlement, AIP acquired ownership, control or direction over common shares of the Company requiring disclosure pursuant to the early warning requirements of applicable securities regulation. Immediately prior to the Debt Settlement, AIP had ownership of, or exercised control or direction over, approximately 3,300,000 voting or equity shares of the Company. AIP acquired ownership of an additional 65,716,666 common shares of the Company representing approximately 42.85% of the Company’s issued and outstanding common shares and now holds approximately 45.00% of the issued and outstanding common shares of the Company.

The Company understands that AIP acquired the aforementioned securities for investment purposes and may, from time to time and depending on market and other conditions and subject to the requirements of applicable securities laws, acquire additional common shares through market transactions, private agreements, treasury issuances or otherwise, or may, subject to the requirements of applicable securities laws, sell all or some portion of the common shares they own or control, or may continue to hold the common shares.

This portion of this news release is issued pursuant to National Instrument 62-103 – The Early Warning System and Related and Take-Over Bid and Insider Reporting Issues of the Canadian Securities Administrators, which also requires an early warning report to be filed with the applicable securities regulators containing additional information with respect to the foregoing matters.

ZoomAway Announces Proposed Shares-For-Debt and Loan Transactions

By | Headlines, News Highlights, Press Releases | No Comments

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / November 5, 2020 / ZoomAway Travel Inc. (TSXV:ZMA)(OTCQB:ZMWYF) (the “Company” or “ZMA“) www.zoomaway.com, is pleased to announce that it will file a shares-for-debt transaction with the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV“) in respect of $985,000 of existing debt (the “Debt“). The Debt being settled is part of a series of non-convertible notes that were issued to AIP Convertible Private Debt Fund L.P. (“AIP“) pursuant to the Note Purchase Agreement announced on May 17, 2019, as amended from time to time (the “NPA“). The Debt is set to mature on November 30, 2020. The Company confirms that as of the end of its most recently completed fiscal quarter (September 30, 2020), that it was in compliance with all affirmative covenants in the NPA and is otherwise in good standing with AIP. The Company proposes to settle the Debt by issuing to AIP a total of 65,716,666 common shares of the Company at a deemed price of $0.015 per share and 65,716,666 common share purchase warrants (the “Debt Settlement“). Each warrant will be exercisable for a period of 60 months from the date of issuance at an exercise price of $0.05 each. After giving effect to the Debt Settlement, the Company will have a total of approximately 142,360,338 shares issued and outstanding, with AIP holding approximately 48.8% on an undiluted basis.

The Debt Settlement is subject to the approval of the TSXV. As the Debt Settlement will result in the creation of a new “control person” as defined under TSXV policies, the Debt Settlement is also subject to shareholder approval, which approval will be sought at the Company’s annual and special meeting of shareholders scheduled for December 16, 2020.

The pricing of the common shares issuable pursuant to the Debt Settlement is in reliance of the temporary relief measures established by the TSXV on April 8, 2020, and extended by the TSXV on September 16, 2020, providing for temporary relief measures to its Policy 4.3, lowering the minimum pricing from $0.05 to $0.01 per share for shares issued pursuant to a debt settlement where the market price of an issuer’s shares is not greater than $0.05. The market price of the Company’s common shares at close of business on October 28, 2020 was $0.015.

Further to the Debt Settlement and upon TSXV and shareholder approval, the Company will enter into a new loan agreement with AIP whereby it will provide a US$5 million (US$5,000,000) facility for future acquisitions. It is anticipated that the loan will have the following features: (i) a 24-month term; (ii) an interest of rate of 5% per annum; (iii) a due diligence fee of US$100,000; (iv) a facility fee of US$100,000; and (iv) a closing fee of US$1,800,000.

“The pandemic has been very challenging for ZoomAway and the Tourism Industry as a whole,” commented Sean Schaeffer, CEO, “We are thankful that AIP is willing to provide funds for the Company to expand. We believe that with the Debt Settlement, together with the new funding for potential acquisitions, that the Company can look forward to a stronger 2021.”

All securities issuable in respect of the Debt Settlement will be subject to a statutory hold period expiring on the date that is four months and one day after the distribution date. None of the securities issuable in connection with the Debt Settlement will be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of the securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.

ZOOMAWAY CEASE TRADE ORDER

By | Headlines, News Highlights, Press Releases | No Comments

VANCOUVER, BC – June 25th, 2020 – ZoomAway Travel Inc. (TSXV: ZMA) (the “Company”) www.zoomawaytravel.com wishes to update its shareholders and investors regarding the Cease Trade Order (“CTO”) that was issued by the British Columbia Securities Commission (“BCSC”) for failure to report the Company’s audited annual financial statements along with the management’s discussion and analysis on a timely basis. The CTO was issued at the close of trading on Friday, June 19th and was rescinded by the BCSC on June 24th after the Company completed its necessary annual filings. The Company is currently working to submit all relevant required documentation to the TSX Venture Exchange compliance team to allow the stock to resume trading.

The annual financial reporting filings, for which the deadline had been extended from late April to June 15th by blanket ruling (for Covid-19 restrictions), were further delayed given that the Company’s management, working remotely, was unable to interact efficiently with Zoomaway’s auditors, Davidson & Company. The 2019 year-end audited financial statements, together with management’s discussion and analysis and related documents, were finalized and filed on SEDAR on June 23, 2020 and the BCSC withdrew the CTO on June 24th.

The Company worked very diligently with our auditors, despite the Covid-19 restrictions in place, to complete our audit. However, despite our best efforts, we missed the mark. Myself and other members of senior management apologize to our shareholders for this. We are now pushing to get our shares backto trading on the TSX-V.” said Sean Schaeffer, CEO of Zoomaway Travel Inc.
