Versatile Announces Rights Offering and Provides Update on Arrangement With Mobiquity

MECHANICSBURG, PENNSYLVANIA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/03/14 -- Versatile Systems Inc. (TSX VENTURE: VV) ("Versatile" or the "Company") today announced that, further to its news release of December 16, 2013, the Company will be offering rights (the "Offering") to holders of its common shares (the "Common Shares") of record at the close of business on February 18, 2014 (the "Record Date") expiring March 19, 2014 ("Expiry Date"). The Offering will be made in all of the provinces and territories of Canada.

Shareholders of record on the Record Date will receive one right (a "Right") for each Common Share held and four Rights plus the sum of $0.02 will entitle the holder to subscribe for one Common Share. Rights will be evidenced by transferable rights certificates (each, a "Rights Certificate"). The Rights expire at 4:00 p.m. (Toronto time) (the "Expiry Time") on the Expiry Date, after which time unexercised Rights will be void and of no value. Shareholders who fully exercise their Rights are entitled to subscribe pro rata for additional Common Shares, if available, that were not subscribed for initially on or before the Expiry Time.

The Company has entered into a standby agreement (the "Standby Agreement") with Bertrand des Pallieres (the "Guarantor"), a director of the Company and holder of 33,167,500 Common Shares, pursuant to which Guarantor has committed, subject to terms and conditions set out in the Standby Agreement, to purchase at $0.02, such number of Common Shares that are available to be purchased, but not otherwise subscribed for, at the Expiry Time under the Offering. In consideration for this guarantee, Guarantor will be granted 7,757,383 non-transferable common shares purchase warrants (the "Standby Warrants"). Each whole Standby Warrant shall entitle the Guarantor to acquire one Common Share at an exercise price equal to: (a) $0.05 per share, if exercised prior to the Company's previously announced 10 for 1 consolidation (the "Consolidation"); and (b) $0.20 if exercised after the Share Consolidation. The Standby Warrants will expire on September 21, 2014.

The Offering is expected to raise gross proceeds of approximately $786,428.20, which will be used to repay a secured loan of the Guarantor to the Company.

The Rights will be posted for trading on the TSX Venture Exchange and will trade under the symbol "VV.RT". Trading of the Rights is expected to continue until 12:00 noon (Toronto time) on the Expiry Date. A rights offering circular, together with Rights Certificates, will be mailed to eligible shareholders on or after the Record Date. Eligible registered shareholders wishing to exercise their Rights must forward the completed Rights Certificates, along with the applicable funds to Computershare Investor Services Inc. by the Expiry Date. Shareholders who own their shares through an intermediary, such as a bank, trust company, securities dealer or broker, will receive materials and instructions from their intermediary.
