DELTA, BC, April 20, 2021 – AirTest Technologies Inc. (TSXV: AAT, OTC: AATGF) CEO Ted Konyi is pleased to announce that Omni Marketing Group (OMG), a company controlled by AirTest Director Robert (Bob) Mebruer, has acquired 2.3mm units in a Private Placement financing. With this investment he now owns directly and indirectly, a total of 8,000,000 shares and 2,300,000 warrants.
Subject to TSX conditional approval, the proceeds of $276,000 will be used to advance marketing and sales initiatives for the company’s wireless sensors. Terms of the placement are a unit offering of one share at $0.12 and a warrant to acquire a share at $0.20 good for 2 years from the closing date.
In addition to participating in the Private Placement, OMG is also entering into a joint marketing relationship with the company. OMG has extensive contacts in the grocery store industry and will be introducing Airtest and its products to its network of existing clients. Grocery stores represent a giant opportunity for Airtest, both domestically and internationally.
Ted Konyi commented that “Having Bob and OMG participate in this financing is a great vote of confidence for the future of Airtest. As a very successful businessman, with interests across 67 operating companies and active in 42 countries, Bob brings a wealth of business experience and contacts to Airtest.”
“OMG’s focus on the grocery store trade is a fantastic channel for Airtest to advance its sales initiatives with very warm introductions at the most senior levels. OMG’s current client list includes day to day activity with over 75,000 grocery store locations globally. While the bulk of the stores are located in South East Asia, more recent growth for OMG has been in the North American and Central/Eastern European markets, which will augur well for Airtest.”
“We look forward to working closely with OMG’s sales and marketing resources in advancing the deployment of energy efficiency systems in the grocery store segment.”
Bob Mebruer stated “I have been involved with Airtest as an investor and Director for quite a few years and never have I felt more confident about the company’s future and its direction. With the launch of the new wireless sensors that communicate with protocols used by the latest Building Management Systems (BMS), Airtest is now poised for substantial growth. OMG will bring additional strength to the marketing of AirTest’s products on a global scale. We look forward to working with the team in developing these new markets for the company.”
