Toople, a provider of bespoke telecom services to UK SMEs, is pleased to announce it has received commitments for convertible loans of £300,000 from private investors and existing shareholders.  The loans have an interest rate of 10% and fall due in January 2023, can be converted at any time at the lenders' election at the rate of 125% of the loan amount converted with a 10% discount of the average of the two lowest Volume Weighted Average Prices in respect of Ordinary Shares during the 20 business days immediately preceding the date of the Conversion Notice. In addition, lenders will receive warrants equal to 100% of the number of ordinary shares issued at conversion exercisable at the conversion price anytime up until 28 March 2024.


The loans provide the company with working capital to move towards profitability whilst the Board is also exploring EBITDA enhancing M&A opportunities.  A current business and trading update will be released to coincide the Company's Annual General Meeting (AGM) to be held on 31st March 2022.

Andy Hollingworth CEO commented:

"This non-dilutive funding is another positive step for the Company and shows strong support from existing shareholders and debt providers, who share our vision of driving the business forward.  We intend to capitalise on the opportunities that are presenting themselves as the SME market in the UK continues to reopen after the hiatus caused by the COVID-19 restrictions.  We look forward to providing a more detailed update on the business and its progress at the time of our AGM."
