Canntab Therapeutics Limited (formerly Telferscot Resources Inc.) (CSE:TFS) (“Canntab” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced three-cornered amalgamation with Canntab Therapeutics Subsidiary Limited (formerly Canntab Therapeutics Limited) (“Canntab Private”) and 2611780 Ontario Inc. (“261 Ontario”), a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company (the “Transaction”).
As a part of the Transaction, the Company consolidated its outstanding common shares on the basis of one post-consolidation common share for every 200 pre-consolidation common shares (each post-consolidation common share, a “Post-Consolidation Share”). Following the consolidation, Canntab Private amalgamated with 261 Ontario (the “Amalgamation”) and the Company subsequently changed its name from “Telferscot Resources Inc.” to “Canntab Therapeutics Limited”. In accordance with the terms of the Amalgamation, the Company purchased all of the issued and outstanding common shares of Canntab Private (each, a “Canntab Private Share”) on the basis of four Post-Consolidation Shares for each one Canntab Private Share outstanding immediately prior to the Amalgamation.
Conversion of Subscription Receipts
As previously announced on January 15, 2018, Canntab Private completed a non-brokered private placement (the “Financing”) by issuing 1,251,914 subscription receipts (each, a “Subscription Receipt”) at a price of $4.00 per Subscription Receipt (the “Issue Price”) for aggregate gross proceeds of $5,007,656 (the “Escrowed Funds”). As a result of the closing of the Transaction, the Escrowed Funds less customary transactional expenses were released to the Company and the holders of Subscription Receipts received an equivalent number of Canntab Private Shares, which were each immediately exchanged for four Post-Consolidation Shares.
Following completion of the Transaction, the Company now has 24,484,701 issued and outstanding Post-Consolidation Shares. Assuming that all of the outstanding options and warrants of the Company were exercised, the Company would have 28,236,237 Post-Consolidation Shares outstanding on a fully diluted basis. 7,996,000 of the Post-Consolidation Shares are subject to escrow pursuant to the policies of the CSE and will be released from escrow based on the passage of time, such that 10% of the securities will be released upon listing and the balance will be released in six equal tranches of 15% every six months thereafter.
Directors and Officers
As part of the Transaction, all of the incumbent officers and directors of the Company resigned and were replaced by Jeff Renwick (Chief Executive Officer and Director), Richard Goldstein (Chief Financial Officer and Director), Barry M. Polisuk (Secretary and Director), Sheldon Inwentash (Director) and Vitor Fonseca (Director). The Company wishes to thank the outgoing board and management team of the Company.
Conditional Approval to List on CSE
The Company is pleased to announce that it has received conditional approval to list the Post-Consolidation Shares on the Canadian Stock Exchange (the “CSE”) subject to completion of customary listing requirements of the CSE, including receipt of all required documentation. The Company is working to meet the CSE listing conditions in a timely manner. The Company will provide an update once the CSE has issued a bulletin confirming the date on which trading on the CSE will commence. Once final approval is received, the Post-Consolidation Shares will commence trading on the CSE under the ticker symbol “PILL”.
