TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 10/08/13 -- Innovative Composites International Inc. (CNSX: IC)(OTCQX: ICIZF) ("ICI", or the "Company") is pleased to announce that, further to its press release on October 7, 2013 announcing an increase in the size of its secured convertible debenture offering (the "Debentures") to an aggregate of $3,200,000 (the "Offering"), the Company has closed its tranche 2 offering of convertible debentures for an aggregate principal amount of $1,129,000 (the "Tranche 2 Debentures").

The Debentures bear interest at a rate of 10% per annum and are convertible into common shares of the Company at a conversion price of $0.03. Tranche 2 Debenture holders have been provided with the same security that was provided to Tranche 1 Debenture holders, being a first priority security interest over all of the assets of the Company, with subordination for accounts receivable and inventory financings. The Company has the right to prepay the Debentures upon payment of an additional three month's interest, although Debenture holders will have the right to convert should the Company seek to exercise its prepayment rights. The Debentures were issued pursuant to a trust indenture with Olympia Transfer Services Inc. ("Olympia") acting as trustee thereunder, and the Tranche 2 Debentures were also issued pursuant to a supplemental trust indenture with Olympia dated today.
Subscribers in the Offering received 1,600 share purchase warrants for every $1,000 of principal subscribed for, each such warrant entitling the holder to purchase one additional share at a purchase price of $0.05 for a period of two years (the "Warrants"). A total of 1,806,400 Warrants were issued in connection with the closing of the Tranche 2 Debentures today, and an aggregate total of 5,033,400 Warrants have been issued pursuant to the Offering. The Offering was non-brokered. Approximately $1.009 million of the Tranche 2 Debentures were issued in satisfaction of existing debts of the Company, and the remaining cash proceeds (being $120,000) shall be used for general working capital purposes. Finder's fees equal to 3% of cash subscribers sourced were paid to certain arm's length third parties.
Said Mark Rivers, CEO of the Company: "With the closing of the Tranche 2 Debentures, and having now dealt with certain of our more pressing debtholder situations in an orderly manner, we can continue to focus on our business and growth initiatives.
