Gravitas Announces Definitive Agreement regarding the Sale of Securities in Portfolio Analysts Inc.


Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – September 27, 2019) – Gravitas Financial Inc. (CSE: GFI): Further to its news release dated May 28, 2019 announcing the entering into of an accommodation agreement (the “Accommodation Agreement“) and related sale and investment solicitation process (“SISP“), Gravitas Financial Inc. (“Gravitas“) announces that Gravitas Financial Services Holdings Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Gravitas, has entered into a share purchase agreement (the “Purchase Agreement“) with The Canadian Family Office Network Ltd. (“CFON“) pursuant to which CFON will acquire from Gravitas Financial Services Holdings Inc. all of its interest in Portfolio Analysts Inc., being 80 Class “B” common shares and 800 Class “C” preferred shares (the “Purchased Securities“) in the issued and outstanding capital of Portfolio Analysts Inc., in consideration for an aggregate purchase price of $2,480,000 (the “Transaction“).

Provided that all conditions set out in the Purchase Agreement have been satisfied or waived in accordance therein, CFON shall pay the purchase price of the Purchased Securities without withholding, set-off or reduction. The proceeds of the Transaction will be used primarily to satisfy Gravitas’ secured debt obligations, in accordance with the Accommodation Agreement. None of the proceeds from the Transaction shall be distributed to shareholders of Gravitas.

As the completion of the Transaction, along with another transaction previously announced by the Company, could result in the sale of all or substantially all of the property of Gravitas, the Transaction, inter alia, requires the approval of the shareholders of Gravitas. Such approval will be sought at the upcoming annual and special meeting of shareholders of Gravitas, now scheduled to be held on Tuesday, October 29, 2019 (the “Meeting“). The record date for the Meeting remains as September 11, 2019. Further information regarding the Transaction will be provided in the management information circular in respect of the Meeting, a copy of which Gravitas will prepare, file, and mail in due course to its shareholders.
