NEW YORK, Sept. 02, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Logiq, Inc. (NEO: LGIQ) (the “Company” or “Logiq”), a global provider of award-winning e-commerce and fintech solutions, has announced that it has granted and issued a total of 1,242,187 common stock under its equity incentive plan to certain employees and consultants of the Company (the “Stock Awards”). All of the above mentioned Stock Awards were issued at a deemed price of C$5.20 per share pursuant to a Registration Statement on Form S-8 under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended. 32,000 of the Stock Awards were issued to Brent Suen, the President of the Company, and 100,000 of the Stock Awards were issued to Haig Newton, the President of the Company’s DataLogiq division. The Stock Awards will not be released to the recipients until the Company has obtained shareholder approval for its equity incentive plan (as required by the policies of the NEO Exchange) which is expected to occur later this year.
