SINGAPORE, May 20, 2024 — Genius Group Limited (“Genius Group” or the “Company”), a leading AI-powered education group, announced an exclusive agreement to immediately exercise several of its outstanding Series 2024-C warrants to purchase a total of 10,950,451 ordinary shares originally issued in January 2023. The exercise price is $0.35 per share. The ordinary shares are registered according to a valid registration statement on Form F-1 (No. 333-273841). The gross proceeds to the Company from the exercise of the warrants are expected to be approximately $3.8 million, before taking into account placement agent fees and estimated offering expenses.

In exchange for the immediate exercise, the Company will issue new Series 2024-D warrants to purchase up to 10,950,451 ordinary shares and new Series 2024-E warrants to purchase up to 10,950,451 ordinary shares. The new warrants will have an exercise price of $0.35 per share and will be effective immediately upon issuance. The Series 2024-D warrants will have a term of five and one-half years from the issuance date, while the Series 2024-E warrants will have a term of two years from the issuance date.

The offering is scheduled to close on or around May 22, 2024, subject to the satisfaction of typical closing conditions. The Company intends to utilize the net proceeds from the offering for general corporate purposes, including working capital, operating expenses, debt repayment, and support for acquired assets.

The Company has also agreed, effective upon the closing of the offering, to (i) amend certain existing warrants to purchase up to an aggregate of 8,945,000 ordinary shares that were previously issued in April 2024 and have an exercise price of $0.41 per share, such that the amended warrants will have a reduced exercise price of $0.35 per share and (ii) issue to the holder of such existing warrants a warrant to purchase up to an aggregate of 6,000,000 ordinary shares, at an exercise price of $0.35 per share. This warrant will be effective immediately upon issuance and will have a term of five years from the issuance date.

The new warrants described above were offered in a private placement according to an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “1933 Act”) and, along with the ordinary shares issuable upon their exercise, have not been registered under the 1933 Act and may not be offered or sold in the United States without registration with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) or an applicable exemption from such registration requirements.
