TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 07/28/14 -- iSIGN Media Solutions Inc. ("iSIGN" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: ISD)(OTCQX: ISDSF), a leading provider of interactive mobile advertising solutions that serves advertisers, manufacturers, retailers and advertising agencies throughout North America, today announced that, further to its press release dated July 18, 2014, it completed a bridge financing by way of private placement of unsecured convertible promissory notes (the "Notes"), for aggregate gross proceeds of $1.5 million.

The Notes have a term of three months (subject to adjustment upon certain events, as discussed in further detail below), and will accrue interest at a rate of 8% per annum, payable upon maturity.

The principal amount outstanding under the Notes shall automatically be converted into units of the Company (the "Units") at a price equal to $0.25 per Unit upon closing of the previously announced acquisition of P.O.S. Canada Inc. ("POS Canada") by the Company (the "Acquisition"). Each Unit shall be comprised of one common share (a "Unit Share") and one common share purchase warrant (a "Warrant") of the Company. Each Warrant shall be exercisable to acquire one common share of the Company (a "Warrant Share") for a period of two years following the date of issuance of the Warrant at an exercise price of $0.50 per Warrant Share, subject to adjustment in certain events. The Unit Shares and Warrants (and, if applicable, the Warrant Shares) will be subject to a hold period of 4 months from the date of issue of the Notes. All accrued and unpaid interest under the Notes is payable by the Company in cash on conversion of the Notes.

In the event that, prior to the maturity of the Notes, either (i) the memorandum of agreement dated May 28, 2014 between the Company and POS Canada in respect of the Acquisition is terminated, (ii) the definitive agreement to be entered into by the Company and POS Canada in respect of the Acquisition (the "Definitive Agreement") is not signed by the parties on or before July 31, 2014; or (iii) the Definitive Agreement is terminated in accordance with its terms prior to the closing of the Acquisition, all obligations under the Notes shall, at the option of the holders of the Notes, accelerate and become forthwith due and payable, subject to the approval of holders of Notes holding not less than an aggregate of 50.1% of the obligation owing by the Company from time to time pursuant to the Notes.

The proceeds from the sale of the Notes will be used for software development, operations and product manufacturing.

One of the purchasers of the Notes, Korona Group Ltd. ("Korona"), is a "related party", as such term is defined in Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"), of iSIGN, holding approximately 10.4% of the issued and outstanding common shares of the Company. As such, the issuance of Notes to Korona is a "related party transaction" for the Company. For this transaction, the Company has relied on the exemption from the formal valuation requirements of MI 61-101 contained in section 5.5(a) of MI 61-101 and has relied on the exemption from the minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 contained in section 5.7(a) of MI 61-101.

The securities described herein have not been and will not be registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from those registration requirements. This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any securities nor shall there by any sale of the securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
