Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – September 7, 2022) – Marble Financial Inc. (CSE: MRBL) (OTC Pink: MRBLF) (FSE: 2V0) (“Marble” or the “Company”), an AI-driven financial technology company, provides an update to the News Release issued on April 28, 2022 relating to its binding letter of intent with eBunch Data and Development Ltd. (the “Vendor”).
Upon completion of the technical, operational and financial due diligence of the Vendor, the Company and the Vendor have agreed to revised commercial terms relating to the sale of certain of the Vendor’s assets comprising its eBunch business to Marble (the “Transaction”).
Accumulate.AI Software Ltd. (the “Purchaser”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Marble, will acquire certain technology assets relating to the Vendor’s inventory management system for auto dealerships and related assets from the Vendor pursuant to an Asset Purchase Definitive Agreement for consideration of up to CDN$550,000 (the “Purchase Price”). The Purchase Price will be paid by the Purchaser as to: (i) $125,000 on closing, and (ii) an earn-out of up to $425,000 (the “Earn-Out”) equal to 33-1/3% of the net income of the acquired Vendor’s business realized during the eight successive quarterly financial reporting periods following the closing date (each, a “Financial Quarter”).
Subject to regulatory approval, the Earn-Out will be paid in the form of common shares of Marble issued from treasury, calculated based on the volume weighted average closing trading price (VWAP) of Marble common shares on the Canadian Securities Exchange for the five prior trading days ending three trading days prior to the end of each Financial Quarter. The Earn-Out shall cease and be of no further effect if the net income of the Vendor’s business is negative for two successive Fiscal Quarters during the Earn-Out period.
Marble is pleased to announce that Paul Lehal, the CEO of eBunch and the CTO of Konect.ai., will enter into a consulting agreement with the Purchaser and oversee the integration of Marble’s Connect API with Konect.ai’s 52 car dealer partnerships in Canada and 200+ car dealer partnerships in the United States, which forms part of Marble’s future expansion plans. Mr. Lehal will remain employed by the Vendor as the Purchaser will not acquire the Konect.ai. business.
The Transaction is subject to regulatory and corporate approvals and is expected to close on or before September 30, 2022.
