(TSXV: PLUR) (OTCQB: PLCKF) ("Plurilock" or the "Company"), an identity-centric cybersecurity solutions provider for workforces, is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously-announced "bought-deal" public offering of common shares (the "Shares"), including the exercise in full of the over-allotment option (the "Offering").
The Company issued a total of 9,200,000 Shares at the price of $0.50 (the "Issue Price")per Share for total gross proceeds of $4.6 million (including the exercise in full of the over-allotment option).

The proceeds raised from the sale of Shares under the Offering are expected to be used by the Company for general working capital, research and development, marketing and general corporate purposes.
The Company paid the Underwriters a cash commission of $263,550 and issued 527,100 underwriters' warrants (the "Underwriters' Warrants"). Each Underwriters' Warrant is exercisable for one Share at the Issue Price per Share for a period of 36 months following the closing of the Offering.

Insiders of the Company purchased 80,000 Shares under the Offering, which constituted a "related party transaction" within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). The issuance to the insiders is exempt from the formal valuation and the minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as the fair market value of the Shares issued to or the consideration paid by such insiders did not exceed 25% of the Company's market capitalization.
