Item 1.01  Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
Item 3.02  Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.

On November 25, 2011, CommerceTel Corporation (the “Company”) issued to a number of accredited investors a series of its 10% Senior Secured Convertible Bridge Note (the “Notes”) in the aggregate principal amount of $262,500 (the “Financing”).  The Notes accrue interest at the rate of 10% per annum.  The entire principal amount evidenced by the Notes (the “Principal Amount”) plus all accrued and unpaid interest is due on the earlier of (i) the date the Company completes a financing transaction for the offer and sale of shares of common stock (including securities convertible into or exercisable for its common stock), in an aggregate amount of no less than 125% of the principal amounts evidenced by the Notes (a “Qualifying Financing”), and (ii) February 2, 2012.

On the maturity date of the Notes, in addition to the repayment of the Principal Amount and all accrued and unpaid interest, the Company will issue to each holder of the Notes, at each such holder’s option, (i) three year warrants to purchase that number of shares of its common stock equal to the Principal Amount plus all accrued and unpaid interest divided by the per share purchase price of the common stock offered and sold in the Qualifying Financing (the “Offering Price”) which warrants shall be exercisable at the Offering Price, or (ii) that number of shares of Common Stock equal to the product arrived at by multiplying (x) the Principal Amount plus all accrued and unpaid interest divided by the Offering Price and (y) 0.33.

The Company’s obligations under the Notes are secured by all of the assets of the Company, including all shares of CommerceTel, Inc., its wholly owned subsidiary.

Emerging Growth Equities, Ltd., a registered broker dealer, was paid a placement agent fee in the amount of $13,250 for its services rendered in connection with the Financing.

The Company claims an exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Act”), for the securities issued in the Financing pursuant to Section 4(2) of the Act and/or Regulation D promulgated there under since, among other things, the transaction did not involve a public offering, the Investors are accredited investors and/or qualified institutional buyers, the Investors had access to information about the Company and their investment, the Investors took the securities for investment and not resale, and the Company took appropriate measures to restrict the transfer of the securities.

Since 2008 Mr. Jacques has been at Greenough Consulting Group, a firm that provides CFO and administrative services for technology companies and private equity firms.  From 2000 to 2008, he was the CFO for BlueRun Ventures where he created the financial and administrative infrastructure for the venture capital partnership.  From 1999 to 2000, Mr. Jacques was the CFO of PayPal where he established that firm’s financial planning and accounting processes.
