VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, Logan Resources Ltd. (TSXV) (the “Company” or “Logan”) and Voleo, Inc. (“Voleo”) are pleased to announce that Voleo has closed its oversubscribed bridge financing, raising a total of $780,775.45 through issuance of common shares (“Shares”) at a price of $0.35. The bridge financing was conducted in connection with the previously announced business combination of Voleo and Logan (the “Transaction”). For further information see Logan’s press release dated January 30, 2018.
The closing of the bridge financing will enable Voleo to accelerate development of the Cryptoleo platform and prepare for full launch of Voleo’s white-label social trading app while completing the Transaction with Logan in order to list on the TSX Venture Exchange.
Voleo develops trading platforms for retail investors with a unique social component that adds value, creates engagement and offers inherent virality. It operates a discount brokerage in the United States and is offering its equity investment platform white-label to financial institutions in the US and around the world. Voleo’s subsidiary, Voleo USA, Inc. is registered as a broker-dealer with FINRA and the Securities and Exchange Commission.
In addition to stock trading, Voleo has successfully tested and will launch a digital currency trading platform for consumers. Users will have access to several major cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, Litecoin, Digital Cash, and Ripple, using multiple fiat currency payment methods. The platform will leverage Voleo’s patent-pending trading technology, which recently piloted cryptocurrencies along with traditional equities in the Voleo Nasdaq Equity Trading Competition. Voleo’s cryptocurrency trading platform will be launched in 2018.
Voleo has always believed in the power of collaboration and the advantages that group decision making brings to investment decisions. Diversification and knowledge sharing reduces risk, while club functionality lowers costs. Investment club investing is available along with individual accounts, providing choice and flexibility to investors.
For a limited time, those who wish to practice trading equities as well as cryptocurrencies can do so using Voleo SimuTrader completely free of charge. Available in app stores internationally, users can form a team to deploy a simulated million-dollar individual portfolio, or form a club with friends to learn and practice different investment strategies.
The Transaction is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “Exchange”) and other conditions customary for a transaction of this nature. There can be no assurance that the Transaction will be completed as proposed or at all. After consultation with the Exchange, Logan will be obtaining shareholder approval for the Transaction.
