VANCOUVER --Live Current Media Inc., an e-commerce company that owns and operates the luxury fragrance brand www.perfume.com, as well as a portfolio of other domain names, today announced that it has closed a private offering of units consisting of shares of common stock and warrants for the purchase of common stock.
Live Current Media Inc. closed a private offering of 119 units at a price of $5,000 per unit for total proceeds to the Company of $595,000 in two tranches. The first tranche, in the amount of $370,000, closed on July 23 and the second tranche, in the amount of $225,000, closed on Aug. 4.
Each unit is comprised of 50,000 shares of common stock and a warrant for the purchase of 50,000 shares of common stock. Each warrant entitles the holder to purchase one share of common stock for $0.15 per share for two years. Neither the units nor the common stock included in the units and underlying the warrants have been registered under the Securities Act of 1933 and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements.
“The closing of this financing will allow Live Current Media to purchase brand name fragrances directly without having to go through the secondary, grey market and to sell them at improved margins”
The proceeds will be used for general corporate purposes including the purchase of perfume inventory for the key holiday gift giving period.
“The closing of this financing will allow Live Current Media to purchase brand name fragrances directly without having to go through the secondary, grey market and to sell them at improved margins,” says Live Current president and chief operating officer Paul Morrison. “Perfume.com will now be able to, in addition to purchasing the classic fragrances, have access to the newest fragrances as they are released. It can take up to six months for these new products to filter down to the secondary, grey market, providing Live Current with product that few other e-commerce sites will carry.”
