Helix Applications (TSXV: HELX) has just announced this morning that it has provided a £750,000 loan facility to GlobalBlock. The loan is unsecured, matures after one year and bears interest at a rate of 10% per annum. The loan also contains a conversion feature whereby HELX has the option to convert the outstanding loan into a 10% equity interest of GlobalBlock, in certain circumstances, such as GlobalBlock not repaying the loan on the maturity date, or in the event of a change of control of GlobalBlock not involving HELX.
GlobalBlock has been operational since 2017 as a crypto-asset broker that provides retail and institutional investors with a service driven solution to trade crypto-assets. GlobalBlock was founded by established London, City-based entrepreneurs who teamed up to bring a better, more transparent and cost-efficient alternative for trading crypto-assets to the marketplace.
As announced on March 8, 2021, HELX and GlobalBlock have entered into a non-binding Memorandum of Understanding to work together exclusively for a period of time to negotiate a potential business combination. The loan funds are to be used by GlobalBlock to expand its business, specifically by increasing their trading capacity and by undertaking a targeted marketing campaign in the UK.
HELX raised $3 million in a private placement a few days ago at $1.50 per share.
