FRMO Corp. Announces May 2013 Transactions And Date Of Annual Meeting Of Shareholders
FRMO Corp. (FRMO-OTC-PINK) (“FRMO” or “Company”) today announced the completion of three previously communicated transactions. The first was a private placement of FRMO shares for certain accredited investors. The second was to amend the terms of the Company’s product-specific revenue interests in products managed by Horizon Kinetics LLC (“Horizon Kinetics”) and its subsidiaries so as to receive a single revenue interest in the gross revenues of Horizon Kinetics. The third was the exchange of certain privately held units of Horizon Kinetics for shares of FRMO.
Private Placement Completed
Pursuant to a private placement, the Company invited subscriptions from certain accredited investors to purchase up to a maximum of 1,730,103 shares of its common stock at $2.89 per share. Subscriptions were received by April 15, 2013 from 72 investors for 100% of the shares offered by the Company. The subscriptions were accepted by the Company, and the shares were issued on May 1, 2013 when the Company received payment of $4,999,997.67.
Adjustment of Product-Specific Revenue InterestsBy agreement dated April 16, 2013, the Company amended the terms of its product-specific revenue interests in certain products managed by Horizon Kinetics and its subsidiaries: (i) a mutual fund, (ii) two private investment funds, (iii) a consultative relationship with an institutional investor and, (iv) an institutional separate account. The transaction was consummated at the close of business on May 31, 2013. FRMO will now receive a single revenue interest equal to 4.199% of the gross revenues of Horizon Kinetics.
