Club16 Fitness to Open Additional Clubs

CALGARY, Alberta, June 30, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Founders Advantage Capital Corp. (TSX-V: FCF) (“FAC” or the “Corporation”) is pleased to announce that its investee Club16 Limited Partnership (“Club16”) has entered into an agreement to open a new fitness club in North Burnaby (28,000 sq ft).  The facility was previously operated by a former competitor and is expected to be operational by mid-September.  Club16 is also proceeding with its previously planned club opening in Chilliwack (22,000 sq ft) in early 2021.  Upon completion of these two clubs, Club16 will have a total of 16 facilities across the Greater Vancouver Area. 

James Bell, President and CEO commented: “We are excited to have Club16 opening two locations in the next six months.  We fully support the Club16 management team as they take advantage of cost-effective growth opportunities in a unique market.  Club16 has done an excellent job with its recent re-opening and we are pleased to see membership sales in June outpacing cancellations.”

In an effort to enhance operating liquidity, Club16 has increased its credit facilities by an additional $1.5 million.  Further, Club16 completed a private placement of 273 class A LP units to our founder/operating partner for proceeds of $999,180 (increasing its ownership interest from 40% to 41.6%).  The proceeds from the Club16 offering will be used to fund the opening of the two new clubs.
