VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, Apr 23, 2010– International PBX Ventures Ltd. (the “Company”) (TSX V: PBX) is pleased to announce that it closed its second tranche of 2,417,500 units for total proceeds of $483,500. The full private placement was oversubscribed such that the previously announced non-brokered private placement of 7,000,000 Units at a price of Cdn$0.20 per Unit for total gross proceeds of Cdn$1,400,000 resulted in total gross proceeds of Cdn$1,515,500 and the issuance of a total of 7,577,500 Units.
The Company announced its private placement of 7,000,000 Units at a price of $0.20 per Unit on February 22, 2010. The private placement closed in two tranches – April 15, 2010 and April 23, 2010.
Each Unit consists of one common share of the Company and one-half of one share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant will entitle the holder to purchase a further common share at a price of $0.30 per share for a period of one year subject to an acceleration event, which shortens the period to 30 days after the Company’s stock has traded ten consecutive days at $0.40 or higher.
The Units issued under the second tranche have a four month hold period which ends on August 24, 2010.
The Company paid total cash finder’s fees of $2,550 in connection with the both tranches of the private placement.
