AMPD Ventures Announces Closing of First Tranche of Private Placement

April 29, 2021

Vancouver, British Columbia – April 29, 2021 - AMPD Ventures Inc. (“AMPD” or the “Company”, CSE: AMPD; FRA: 2Q0) is pleased to announce that it has closed a first tranche of the Company’s non-brokered private placement announced on March 29, 2021 (the “Private Placement”).

In conjunction with this first closing, the Company issued 4,786,000 Units at a price of CAD $0.25 per Unit for gross proceeds of CAD $1,196,500. Each Unit is comprised of one common share of the Company (each a ‘Share’) and one common share purchase warrant (each a “Unit Warrant” and, collectively, the “Unit Warrants”), with each Unit Warrant entitling the holder to subscribe for one Common Share (each a “Warrant Share” and, collectively, the “Warrant Shares”) in the capital of the Corporation at an exercise price of CAD $0.40 per Warrant Share for a period of 24 months following the date of the closing of the Private Placement. The expiry date of the Unit Warrants may be accelerated at the option of the Company if, at any time prior to the expiry of the Unit Warrants, the volume weighted average trading price of the underlying Common Shares on the Canadian Securities Exchange (or such other recognized Canadian stock exchange on which the Common Shares are then listed) is or exceeds CAD $0.75 for a period of ten (10) consecutive trading days.

In connection with the Private Placement, the Company paid certain finders CAD $38,700 in cash, and 154,800 Unit Warrants as finder’s fees.

All securities issued under the private placement are subject to a four-month and one day hold period, and completion of the financing is subject to a number of conditions, including, without limitation, receipt of all regulatory approvals, including approval of the Canadian Securities Exchange (“CSE”).

The Company anticipates closing additional tranches of the Private Placement in due course to raise total gross proceeds of up to the authorized CAD $3,000,000.

The Company intends to use the proceeds from the private placement for the deployment of AMPD infrastructure in additional geographic locations, to increase headcount, and for general working capital purposes.
