LiveTiles (LVT) will receive $10 million in extra funding over three and half years after locking in a debt facility with OneVentures.
The Sydney-based venture capital firm will hand over the funds via two tranches, with the money to go towards LVT’s future growth.
Under the loan conditions, the workplace software business plans will receive $6 million from OneVentures immediately.
After that, LiveTiles will seek approval from its shareholders and the ASX for a $4 million convertible note facility.
The notes will convert to ordinary shares, with an exercise price of 20 cents each, a 35 per cent premium to LVT’s 30-day average weighted share price.
Additionally, the company’s loan will attract a 13.5 per cent interest rate which can drop to 9.5 per cent once shareholder approval is granted for the note facility.
Commenting on today’s debt facility announcement, LiveTiles Co-Founder and CEO Karl Redenbach said it would fuel the company’s growth in the future.
“We are pleased to be working with OneVentures, a leading Australian Venture Capital firm and lender that understands our business and is fully supportive of our growth initiatives and investments strategy,” Mr Redenbach said.
“The new facilities are very timely and help set the Company up to achieve its stated strategic goals.”
OneVentures Partner Nick Gainsley echoed the CEO’s comments, stating he was confident the funds would be put to good use.
“We are pleased provide this credit facility to LiveTiles and join them on their journey,” Mr Gainsley said.
“LiveTiles is a market leader in the employee experience space where we see significant global growth potential as organisations seek ways to better communicate with increasingly distributed workforces and enable digital interaction.”
