Simavita Limited Announces Closing of First Tranche of Private Placement Offering

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/22/14 -- Simavita Limited ("Simavita" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: SV) (ASX: SVA) is pleased to announce that the Company has closed an initial tranche (the "First Tranche") of a private placement (the "Private Placement"), as previously announced on June 18, 2014 in Canada (June 19, 2014 in Australia), to sophisticated and institutional investors in Australia and the United Kingdom.

Pursuant to the First Tranche, Simavita raised AUD$3,099,003 by issuing 6,886,673 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.

The Private Placement also consists of a subsequent tranche (the "Second Tranche") (subject to shareholder approval) that, when combined with the First Tranche, is expected to raise total gross proceeds of AUD$6,025,000 at an issue price of AUD$0.45 per Share and CDI. In addition, Simavita will be conducting a capital raise only in Australia via a CDI purchase plan (the "SPP") to raise up to an additional AUD$1,080,000 at an issue price of AUD$0.45 per CDI. The SPP offer is expected to open on 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 compatible) 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 Australian Securities Exchange (the "ASX"). Quotation of the CDIs issued pursuant to the First Tranche is expected to occur on the ASX on July 2, 2014.

The Shares issued pursuant to the Private Placement that are listed on the TSX Venture Exchange will be subject to a statutory four month hold plus one day commencing from the date of issuance. The Private Placement is subject to TSX Venture Exchange acceptance of requisite regulatory filings.

The Company will, subject to regulatory approval, pay a cash commission of up to a total of 5.5% of the aggregate amount raised from 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

As previously disclosed in the Company's June 18, 2014 press release, in connection with the Second Tranche, the Company will hold a special meeting of shareholders (the "Meeting") on Wednesday, July 23, 2014 at 10:00am (Australian Eastern Standard time). For Canadian corporate law purposes, the record date for the Meeting is June 12, 2014. In accordance with the listing rules of the ASX, the Company's ability to issue greater than 15% of the current issued and outstanding share capital in a rolling 12 month period requires prior approval from its shareholders.

Therefore, 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; and
ii. approving and authorizing, for the purposes of the ASX Listing Rule
    10.11 and all other purposes, the participation of certain directors of
    the Company (or entities associated with them), and an insider, Dussman
    Pty. Ltd. (an entity associated with Director Mr. Damien Haakman), the
    issuing to them pursuant to the Second Tranche an aggregate of 6,502,216
    common shares in the capital of the Corporation at an issue price of
    AUD$0.45 per share.

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 as soon as possible which will set out further information regarding the First Tranche and the Second Tranche.

The Company confirms that, with the release of this announcement, the Company is in full compliance with its continuous disclosure obligations for purposes of the ASX and, as such, it requests that the current trading halt of its securities be lifted immediately.
