The transaction will be completed on or before the 9th September, the date the note expires.

Paul Wiltshire, CEO of Songtradr commented “Jaxsta has undertaken a significant transformation over the last 12 months with the refinement of the Jaxsta product offering, the launch of Vinyl, the acquisition of Vampr, and the disciplined management of reducing costs.

Songtradr is very pleased to become a significant shareholder in Jaxsta and we look forward to continuing to build on both our working relationship and our shareholding in the future.”

Jaxsta Chair Linda Jenkinson added “We welcome Songtradr as a significant shareholder and are delighted with the confidence shown in our new strategy. The invaluable input from Songtradr nominee Jaxsta Directors Steve Gledden and Ben Katovsky have been key to the acquisition of Vampr and the launch of, both of which were major catalysts in the early conversion of the first Songtradr note.”

Tranche #1 has a principal balance of $1,420,000 which would be repayable by the 9th of September 2023. Converted shares will take into account interest on the note up to the full due date of 9 September 2023.
