TransCanna Holdings Inc. (CSE:TCAN) (XETR:TH8) (OTC:TCNAF) (“TransCanna” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced brokered private placement of units, generating aggregate gross proceeds of CDN$10,001,750.
An aggregate of 2,000,350 units of the Company (the “Units”) were sold at a price of CDN$5.00 per Unit (the “Offering”). The Offering was conducted by a syndicate of agents co-led by Haywood Securities Inc. and Canaccord Genuity Corp., and PI Financial Corp. (collectively the “Agents”).
Each Unit comprised one common share of the Company (each a “Share”) and one half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant entitles the holder to acquire an additional Share at a price of $6.00 until June 7, 2022. The Warrants are subject to an acceleration clause that would require their exercise within thirty days of notice from the Company in the event that the price of the Shares closes at or above $10.00 for a period of 20 consecutive trading days.
The Warrants are issued pursuant to a warrant indenture dated June 7, 2019 between the Company and its warrant agent, Odyssey Trust Company. A copy of the warrant indenture is available under the Company’s profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com. The Company has agreed to seek a listing of the Warrants on the CSE at such time as all applicable resale restrictions have lapsed, subject to receipt of listing approval.
A commission of 7.0% of the gross proceeds of the Offering was paid through the payment of $700,122.50 in cash, as well as a corporate finance fee of $150,000, plus applicable taxes. In addition, the Agents received an aggregate of 140,024 transferable compensation options to acquire up to 140,024 Shares at a price of $5.00 per Share until June 7, 2022.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering to fund further equipment purchases for its vertically integrated cannabis facility in Modesto, California, additional acquisitions, including the previously announced proposed acquisitions of Biovelle, Soldaze and Lyfted Farms and for working capital and general corporate purposes.
All securities issued pursuant to the Offering are subject to a four month hold period expiring October 8, 2019 in accordance with applicable Canadian securities laws.
