CALGARY, November 28, 2016 – Trakopolis IoT Corp. (“Trakopolis” or the “Company”, and formerly, Lateral Gold Corp.) (TSXV:TRAK), and its wholly-owned subsidiary, CANHaul International Corp (“CANHaul”), today announced that each have separately filed unaudited consolidated financial statements and MD&A for the three months ended September 30, 2016 on SEDAR which are available at www.sedar.com.
The financial results for the first quarter of fiscal 2017 for Trakopolis and CANHaul respectively reflect the operations of Trakopolis and CANHaul prior to the previously announced closing of an amalgamation on October 28, 2016, whereby CANHaul became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Trakopolis through a reverse takeover transaction. Together with the amalgamation and subsequent to the quarter:
- Trakopolis completed a fully subscribed offering, including exercise in full of the over-allotment option, for gross proceeds of $5,750,000 and listed shares on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol TRAK;
- Trakopolis replaced and restructured its long-term debt facility of $1,500,000 with a new facility of $2,800,000 and completed an initial draw of $2,300,000; and
- Trakopolis acquired Electronic Logbook (ELOG) software assets from Verigo Inc. to support Trakopolis’ expectation of a forthcoming regulatory requirement for commercial drivers to transition to ELOG based records over the next 2 years.
