TORONTO, CANADA--(Marketwire - July 6, 2012) -
NOT FOR RELEASE OR DISTRIBUTION IN THE UNITED STATES OR FOR DISSEMINATION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES
Intertainment Media Inc. (TSX VENTURE:INT)(OTCQX:ITMTF)(FRANKFURT:I4T) ("Intertainment" or the "Company") was informed that Poynt Corporation ("Poynt"), a corporation headquartered in Calgary, Alberta, had filed with the Office of the Superintendent of Bankruptcy a Notice of Intention to File a Proposal under the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act (Canada) ("BIA").
According to Poynt's announcement released July 5, 2012, Poynt had terminated its previously announced private placement.
As a result of the termination and failure to close the private placement, Poynt was unable to repay the loan to Intertainment that matured July 5, 2012 in the total principal amount of CDN$1.5 million plus applicable interest and fees that were originally advanced as of March 9, 2012.
The loan is secured by the assets of Poynt under a general security agreement and an IP receivables assignment agreement, with the security interest duly perfected under the laws of Alberta. An event of default has occurred automatically as a result of non-payment in the absence of any default notice being given by Intertainment to Poynt.
The directors and management of Intertainment will work with their advisors to obtain the best possible outcome for the Company and its shareholders in all applicable restructuring proceedings under the BIA.
