(NASDAQ: ZCAR) (the “Company”), a marketplace for car sharing in emerging markets, today announces the closing of the purchase and sale of approximately $3.6 million of promissory notes and investor warrants for expected aggregate gross proceeds of $3 million with institutional investors.

The Notes will be the senior unsecured obligations of the Company and were issued with an original issue discount of approximately 16.67%. The Notes will bear interest at 15% per year unless an event of default has occurred, upon which interest accrues at 20% per year. The Notes will mature on the earlier of nine months after issuance or the closing of capital raises or sales of assets of the Company with net proceeds sufficient to repay the Notes (the “Maturity Date”).

The Warrants are exercisable beginning on the later of (a) the six-month anniversary of issuance and (b) the date the Company obtains stockholder approval. The Warrants expire five years after the later of (x) stockholder approval and (y) the date the Warrant shares may be sold pursuant to an effective registration statement or exemption from registration. The Warrants are subject to exercise price and corresponding share adjustments for certain dilutive issuances and resets following reverse stock splits, in each case, subject to a floor price, and also contain an alternative cashless exercise provision permitting for the cashless exchange of the Warrants for an equal number of shares. The Warrants contain certain exercise limitations, providing that no exercise may be made if, after giving effect to the exercise, the holder, together with any of its affiliates, would own in excess of 4.99% of the Company’s outstanding shares of common stock.

The Company expects to use the net proceeds from the offering, together with its existing cash, for general corporate purposes and working capital.
