Toronto, Canada (March 23, 2022) Playmaker Capital Inc. (TSX-V: PMKR; OTC: PMKRF) (“Playmaker”), the digital sports media company that delivers authentic content experiences through its portfolio of sports media and technology brands, announced that it has entered into an indicative term sheet (the “Term Sheet”) with a Canadian Tier 1 Bank (the “Bank”) regarding multi-year credit facilities (the “Credit Facilities”). The Credit Facilities will help enable Playmaker to continue to execute its M&A growth strategy, to expand its audience footprint across the Americas, and to continue to enhance and diversify its revenue generating capabilities.
“We are constantly evaluating new opportunities to grow our business through acquisition and to enhance shareholder value. This includes ensuring that we have access to capital at favourable costs. Our consistent performance and strong aEBITDA has created this opportunity with the Bank, and we are very excited to continue to work with them,” said Jordan Gnat, CEO of Playmaker.
Pursuant to the Term Sheet, the Bank has agreed to provide Playmaker with three credit facilities, totalling US$15,000,000 to use for acquisitions and general corporate purposes, subject to satisfaction of customary conditions precedent. The facilities have a two-year term, subject to Playmaker’s option to extend for an additional 12 months, subject to the Bank’s approval. The total facility limit can be increased by an additional US$11,000,000, if the Company delivers evidence satisfactory to the Bank that it has completed a minimum equity raise of US$10,000,000.
Playmaker expects to enter into a binding commitment letter with the Bank in respect of the Credit Facilities in April 2022.
Playmaker also announced today that it has filed and obtained a receipt for a preliminary short form base shelf prospectus with the securities commissions in each of the provinces of Canada, other than Quebec.
Upon a final short form base shelf prospectus (the “Shelf Prospectus”) becoming effective, the Shelf Prospectus will be valid for a 25-month period, during which time Playmaker may issue common shares, preferred shares, units, debt securities, subscription receipts and warrants (the “Securities”) in amounts, at prices and on terms based on market conditions at the time of sale and set forth in an accompanying shelf prospectus supplement (“Prospectus Supplement”), for an aggregate offering amount of up to CAD$75,000,000.

Each Prospectus Supplement will contain specific information concerning the use of proceeds from that sale of Securities. There is no certainty that any Securities will be offered or sold under the Shelf Prospectus within the 25-month period.
