Mobiquity Technologies Enters Into a $15 Million Common Stock Purchase Agreement with Aspire Capital Fund, LLC

Mobiquity Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB:MOBQ), the nation’s largest location-based Bluetooth mobile advertising network in shopping malls, today announced that on March 31, 2014 it has entered into a $15 Million common stock purchase agreement (the Purchase Agreement) with Aspire Capital Fund, LLC. Under terms of the agreement, Aspire has made an initial purchase of $500,000 of Mobiquity common stock at a price of $0.50 per share. In addition, after the SEC declares the registration statement related to the transaction effective, Aspire has committed to purchase up to an additional $14.5 million of Mobiquity’s common stock over the next two years at prices based on prevailing market prices over a period preceding each sale.

“We are excited to have Aspire Capital, an institutional investor with an excellent reputation, as a Mobiquity shareholder,” said Dean Julia, co-CEO of Mobiquity Networks. “We believe this agreement will help us access equity capital on reasonable terms and opportunistically as we grow our business. We also believe this agreement could help to expand our networks in other venues such as stadiums, arenas, airports and retail chains.”

“When we first met with Mobiquity two years ago, the management emphasized the huge opportunity in the mobile marketing space using Bluetooth. Since then Apple and Google have chosen to adopt Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), and Mobiquity has been able to grow their Bluetooth network into 100 of the top shopping malls in the United States, representing approximately 120 million monthly shopping visits,” commented Erik J. Brown, a Principal of Aspire Capital.

Key aspects of the Purchase Agreement include:

  • Mobiquity will control the timing and amount of any sales of common stock to Aspire and will know the sales price before directing Aspire to purchase shares;
  • Aspire has no right to require any sales by the Company, but is obligated to make purchases as the Company directs, in accordance with the terms of the Purchase Agreement;
  • There are no limitations on use of proceeds, financial covenants, restrictions on future financings, rights of first refusal, participation rights, penalties or liquidated damages in the Purchase Agreement; and
  • The Purchase Agreement may be terminated by Mobiquity at any time, at its discretion, without any additional cost or penalty.

Mobiquity also entered into a registration rights agreement with Aspire in connection with its entry into the purchase agreement that requires the Company to file a registration statement regarding the shares sold to Aspire Capital. A more complete and detailed description of the transaction is set forth in the Company's Current Report on Form 8-K, filed today with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
