Gopher Protocol Issues Statement Pertaining to Affiliate Status of Third Party Institutional Investor
PERRIS, Calif., May 24, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gopher Protocol Inc. (“Gopher” or the “Company”) today announced that on or about May 17, 2019 its third party institutional investor (the “Investor”) holding its Senior Secured Redeemable Convertible Debenture dated December 3, 2018 (the “Debenture”) directed Gopher’s transfer agent to reserve all remaining authorized but unissued and unreserved shares for the conversions under the Debenture. Further, the Investor also submitted a “Delivery Notice,” dated May 17, 2019, that was received by the Company’s Transfer Agent in respect of the Investor’s request for the issuance of 21,638,095 (the Delivery Notice was for 31,137,366 shares, less 9,499,271 previously issued) shares of the Company’s common stock. The issuance of the 21,638,095 shares to the Investor associated with the Delivery Notice resulted in the Investor owning in excess of 10% of the currently issued and outstanding shares of the Company’s common stock
Due to the element of control over the Company’s finances and operations associated with the reservation and the Investor’s ownership exceeding 10% of the issued and outstanding shares of common stock, Gopher believes that the Investor has become an “affiliate” of the Company, as that term is defined in Rule 144(a)(1).
