The deal saw mCloud acquire 100% of Flow Capital’s royalty agreement with Agnity, a specialist in 4G and 5G mobile server technology.
As part of the transaction, mCloud received a loan from Flow in the amount of US$2 million for a term of 12 months. Flow Capital has received the repayment of the USD $2,000,000 senior secured note and 1.5 million shares of mCloud, the company reported on Monday.
Total cash returns from the Agnity and mCloud agreements exceed US$3,900,000 on a USD $2,750,000 investment, according to a release.
Flow Capital will earn another 3.5 million shares in addition to the 1.5 million mCloud shares received if certain milestones are met by January 2025.
"With the repayment of this loan to Flow, mCloud will be able to focus on executing our growth strategy of connecting assets across all our lines of business," said Russ McMeekin, mCloud's CEO. "We look forward to providing investors with an update of our activities during our Q2 earnings call on August 15, 2019."
Calling the deal a “win-win” for Flow and mCloud, Flow’s chief investment officer Robb McLarty said that the company generated a cash return of 1.43 times its initial investment and significant upside potential through mCloud shares.
“We are pleased to remain investors and congratulate mCloud for its recent fundraise and acquisition of Autopro,” McLarty said in a statement.
Universal mCloud’s shares opened Tuesday at C$0.41 in Toronto and nudged up 1.3% at US$0.32 on OTC markets.
