Snipp Announces Closing of Second Tranche of Private Placement

/ -- WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/25/16 -- Snipp Interactive Inc. ("Snipp" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: SPN)(OTCQX: SNIPF), an international provider of marketing promotions, rebates and loyalty solutions listed on the OTCQX and the TSX Venture Exchange, is pleased to announce that, further to its press release dated April 21, 2016, the Company has completed the second tranche (the "Second Tranche") of a non-brokered private placement (the "Financing"). The Second Tranche is comprised of 3,370,000 common shares (the "Shares") at a price of CAD $0.30 per Share for additional gross proceeds of CAD $1,011,000. Together with the proceeds raised under the first tranche, the Company has now raised $6,261,000 pursuant to the Financing.

The net proceeds raised through the Financing will be used for product development, sales & marketing and general working capital purposes. The Financing will strengthen the Company's balance sheet and is expected to better position it to develop deeper relationships with clients and brands looking for long-term partners for loyalty, promotions and rebate solutions. It will also enable Snipp to fund the development of its next-generation analytical solutions based on the unique receipt-based purchase data that Snipp has been accumulating over the years.

Snipp has received final approval from the TSX Venture Exchange for the closing of the Second Tranche. Closing of additional tranches may be subject to receipt of regulatory approvals, including acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange.

The four-month hold period for all Shares issued under the Second Tranche will expire on August 26, 2016 in accordance with Canadian securities laws. No commissions or finder's fees were paid in connection with the Second Tranche.

Existing shareholders are welcome to call or email the Company if they are interested in subscribing for any of the remaining $739,000 in shares under the Financing.
