Trakopolis IoT Corp. Announces Completion of Subscription Receipts Offering, Closing of Reverse Takeover Transaction, New Credit Facilities and Changes to Board of Directors

CALGARY, AB / ACCESSWIRE / October 28, 2016 / Trakopolis IoT Corp. (TSXV: TKS) ("Trakopolis" or the "Company", and formerly, Lateral Gold Corp.) today announced that the net escrowed proceeds from the previously announced offering of subscription receipts (the "Offering") have been released to the Company and the reverse takeover transaction (the "RTO") with CANHaul International Corp. ("CANHaul") has closed. Trakopolis also announced that it has entered into a credit agreement among Trakopolis and a syndicate of lenders and has appointed a new board and management team.

Release of Escrowed Proceeds of the Offering

The net proceeds of $5,225,000 from the previously announced Offering, including the full exercise of the over-allotment option granted to Canaccord Genuity Corp. and Echelon Wealth Partners Inc., have been released to the Company. The net proceeds of the Offering will be used for sales and marketing, research and development, general and administrative and other operating expenses of the Company.

Closing of the Reverse Takeover Transaction

Trakopolis has closed the previously announced RTO with CANHaul. Pursuant to the RTO, the Company consolidated its outstanding common shares on a 4:1 basis, continued into Alberta pursuant to the Business Corporations Act (Alberta), changed its name to "Trakopolis IoT Corp." and CANHaul has become a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company. The common shares of Trakopolis (the "Trakopolis Shares") will commence trading on the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV") as a Tier 1 technology issuer under the symbol "TRAK" once the TSXV's conditions for listing are satisfied and the TSXV issues its final exchange bulletin confirming the completion of the RTO. After giving effect to the RTO and the Offering, there will be 24,144,622 Trakopolis Shares issued and outstanding (calculated on a non-diluted basis). The Company expects the Trakopolis Shares to resume trading on the TSXV on November 1, 2016.

New Credit Agreement

Trakopolis, through its wholly-owned subsidiary CAN Telematics Inc. ("CAN Telematics"), has entered into a credit agreement (the "Credit Agreement") among CAN Telematics, B.E.S.T. Active 365 Fund LP, Tier One Capital LP, B.E.S.T. Total Return Fund Inc. and B.E.S.T. Special Purpose Fund 1 LP (collectively, the "Lenders"), dated September 9, 2016, whereby the Lenders agreed to make available to CAN Telematics credit facilities in the aggregate principal amount of up to $2,800,000 (the "B.E.S.T. Funds Facilities"). The B.E.S.T. Funds Facilities are available in a maximum of two advances, of which an initial draw of an aggregate principal amount of $2,300,000 has been made available upon closing of the RTO, with an additional advance of up to $500,000 being made available subject to the terms and conditions set out in the Credit Agreement. The B.E.S.T. Funds Facilities, regardless of their advance date, have a maturity of May 26, 2019. Interest accrues on the outstanding principal amount of the B.E.S.T. Funds Facilities at the rate of 11% per annum.

Pursuant to Trakopolis' obligations under the Credit Agreement, the B.E.S.T. Funds Facilities have been used, among other things, to payout in full the amended and restated credit facility agreement dated October 6, 2015 among CAN Telematics, Espresso Capital Tax Credit Fund III Limited Partnership and Investment Fund IV Limited Partnership (the "Espresso Facility Agreement").
