Simavita Limited Announces Proposed Private Placement and Special Meeting of the Shareholders

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/18/14 -- Simavita Limited ("Simavita" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: SV)(ASX: SVA) is pleased to announce that, subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV") and the Australian Securities Exchange (the "ASX"), it is undertaking a private placement (the "Private Placement") to sophisticated and institutional investors in Australia and New Zealand and to accredited investors in Canada and the United States.

Simavita is proposing to raise maximum gross proceeds of up to AUD$8.46 million by issuing up to 18.8 million common shares ("Shares") and Chess Depository Interests ("CDIs") in the Company at an issue price of AUD$0.45 per Share and CDI. Each CDI issued in Australia will represent one Share of Simavita and will rank equally with existing CDIs.

Minimum amounts to be subscribed for are AUD$6 million, however, the Private Placement is expected to consist of two tranches. The initial allocation (the "First Tranche") is expected to close on or around June 23, 2014 with a maximum issue of up to 8.8 million Shares and CDIs, for gross proceeds of up to AUD$3.96 million. The Company is subject to the listing rules of the ASX, whereby a listed issuer may only raise up to a maximum of 15% of its current issued and outstanding securities in a rolling 12 month period without receiving prior shareholder approval. Therefore, a special shareholders meeting of Simavita (details provided below) will be called before a further allocation (the "Second Tranche") of up to 10.0 million Shares and CDIs, for gross proceeds of up to AUD$4.50 million, may close, which subject to obtaining shareholder approval is expected to occur by mid-late July 2014.

Dussman Pty Ltd (an entity associated with Mr. Damien Haakman, a director of Simavita) and related entities (the "Dussman Entities"), are an insider and control person of the Company as defined by the policies of the TSXV. The Dussman Entities have committed to subscribe for up to AUD$3.0 million under the Private Placement. If demand exceeds the minimum of AUD$6 million, the Company reserves the right to reduce the Dussman participation to a minimum of AUD$500,000.

In addition, Simavita will be conducting a capital raise only in Australia and New Zealand via an ASX CDI purchase plan (held in CDIs) (the "SPP") to raise up to an additional AUD$1.08 million at an issue price of AUD$0.45 per CDI. Under the SPP, each existing Simavita CDI holder in Australia and New Zealand as of a record date of June 18, 2014 may acquire additional CDIs at an issuance price of AUD$0.45 per CDI up to AUD$15,000 per holding. The SPP offer is expected to open June 25, 2014 and will remain open until July 25, 2014. The Company will reserve the right to scale back proportionally any oversubscriptions of CDIs in the SPP and to close the SPP offer early. Full details of the SPP including offer and acceptance forms will be sent to shareholders in the coming days.

The proceeds from the Private Placement and the SPP will be used to: (i) accelerate the roll-out of Simavita's current technologies in the US and European markets, (ii) accelerate SIM™ Generation 5 (cloud compatibility) product and SIM™ Community Care (home-based) product, (iii) appoint distributors to roll-out SIM™ Generation 4 in Europe, (iv) acquire and develop complimentary intellectual property, and (v) for general working capital purposes.

All CDIs issued pursuant to the Private Placement are to be fully tradeable and listed on the ASX.

The Shares issued pursuant to the Private Placement that are listed on the TSXV will be subject to a statutory four month hold plus one day.

The Company is proposing, subject to regulatory approval, to pay a cash commission of up to a total of 5.5% of the aggregate amount of certain investors in respect of the Private Placement to Integrated Equity Pty. Ltd., Bell Potter Securities Limited and Shaw Corporate Finance Pty. Limited (all of which are arm's length parties to the Private Placement).

Special Meeting of Shareholders

In connection with the Second Tranche, the Company will hold a special meeting of shareholders (the "Meeting") on Wednesday, July 23, 2014 at 9:00am (Australian Eastern Standard time). For Canadian corporate law purposes, the record date for the Meeting is June 12, 2014. The purpose of the Meeting is to consider, and if deemed appropriate, to pass resolutions: (i) approving and ratifying, for the purposes of ASX Listing Rule 7.4, the issue of the First Tranche, (ii) approving and authorizing, for the purposes of ASX Listing Rule 7.1, the issue of the Second Tranche and SPP, and (iii) approving and authorizing, for the purposes of the ASX Listing Rule 10.11 and all other purposes, the issue to the Dussman Entities of up to 6,666,667 Shares and CDIs at an issue price of $0.45 per Share and CDI. Assuming that shareholder approval is granted, the Second Tranche is expected to close as soon as practicable following the Meeting. Notice of the Meeting and materials will be dispatched in due course which will set out further information regarding the First Tranche and the Second Tranche.
