BioHarvest Sciences Inc. Announces a Private Placement of up to USD $5 Million of Convertible Notes to Finance Production Facilities and Scaling of Core Business

BioHarvest Sciences Inc. Announces a Private Placement of up to USD $5 Million of Convertible Notes to Finance Production Facilities and Scaling of Core Business

BioHarvest Sciences Inc. (CSE: BHSC) (OTC:CNVCF) (FSE: 8MV) ("BioHarvest" or the "Company") announced today a financing plan based on a private placement of up to USD $5 Million (approximately $6.3 Million CAD). The funds raised will allow the Company to accelerate the growth plan for its polyphenolsantioxidants and Cannabis verticals.

On March 23, 2021, BHSC announced the completion of the Company's Cannabis R&D program, marking the start of the proposed transition to commercial scale manufacturing. BioHarvest plans to bring its first Cannabis products to market in 2022 and will be converting the current VINIA® 2 tons/year facility in Rehovot, Israel to produce Cannabis. This is happening in conjunction with the transition of all VINIA ® manufacturing to the new 20 tons/year facility in Yavneh, Israel, which will provide the required VINIA ® production capacity to scale VINIA® sales in the US. The transition to Cannabis manufacturing in Israel, combined with the planned incremental marketing spend for VINIA® in the USA, requires additional financing which the Company will seek to raise by issuing up to $5 Million USD of Convertible Notes (the "Notes").

The Notes which will be denominated in Canadian Dollars, will have a term of 24 months, and pay interest of 6% per annum. The Notes will be convertible as to principal and accrued interest , at the option of the holder, at any time following one year from their issuance (the " Anniversary Date') into common shares of the company at a price equal to the closing market price of the Company's common shares on the date of conversion (the "(Closing Price" ) less a discount of 25% if the closing price is $0.50 per share or less and 20% if the closing price is above $0.51 but in any event not less than $0.26 per share (the "Floor Price") and not higher than a ceiling price (the "Ceiling Price") equal to $0.65 if converted within 90 days of the Anniversary Date, $0.75 if converted between 91 and 180 days of the Anniversary Date, $0.85 if converted between 181 and 270 days of the Anniversary Date and $0.95 thereafter.

The Company will have the Option on 30 days notice to redeem all or any part of the Notes for the principal amount outstanding plus accrued interest at any time if either of the following conditions are met:

a) The common shares of the company are listed on a more senior Stock Exchange (the Toronto Stock Exchange, Nasdaq Capital or Global Markets or any market of the New York Stock Exchange.)

b) the Company completes debt or equity financings for gross proceeds in excess of $10 Million USD following the issuance of the Notes.

In the event that the Company issues a Notice of Redemption prior to the Anniversary Date the amount of principal redeemed, and accrued interest on it, will be immediately convertible at the option of the holder.

The company may pay customary commissions or other sales incentives to registered brokers or investment dealers or finders (where permitted by law).

Beside ongoing and customary liabilities to suppliers and employees, currently the Company has no outstanding debt.

Ilan Sobel, CEO, states "Our unprecedented achievements to date in the development and commercialization of our proprietary platform technology presents an opportunity for investors to enjoy the expected success of the Company as it scales its operations for both business verticals. Our leadership in plant cellular biology, our wealth of IP and our operational performance convince us that the current share price of BHSC, which has also been impacted by geopolitical uncertainties, undervalues the Company. By opting for a convertible loan instrument with conversion deferred for one year we avoid dilution at current share price. This USD $5 Million financing gives us the required marketing resources to accelerate the building of ourVINIA® revenue and customer base as well as provide the capital needed to commence Cannabis production in Israel in H2, both of which are major 2022 priorities which will significantly increase the enterprise value."

Alzheimer’s Disease Treatment Stocks: 3 Biggest NASDAQ Companies in 2024

Alzheimer’s disease treatment stocks are focused on Alzheimer’s disease, a degenerative brain disorder that results in declining memory and thinking skills and typically affects people in their mid-60s.

According to the Alzheimer’s Association, neurons in other areas of the brain also begin to deteriorate as Alzheimer’s disease gets worse, resulting in the loss of basic human functions and overall cognitive impairment.

This condition affects more than 6.9 million people in the US alone; it’s also the most common form of dementia and is the seventh leading cause of death in America. Treatments are available to alleviate Alzheimer’s disease symptoms, but because they do not affect the underlying causes of this neurodegenerative disease, they’re only a bandaid solution.
