(“Pure Extracts” or the “Company”) (CSE: PULL) (XFRA: A2QJAJ) is pleased to announce that it has completed a non-brokered private placement offering (the “Offering”) of special warrants (each, a “Special Warrant”). In connection with the Offering, the Company issued an aggregate of 5,937,001 Special Warrants at a price of $0.075 per Special Warrant, for aggregate gross proceeds of $445,275. The Company also closed its offer to settle an aggregate of $206,433in debt owed to certain creditors (the “Debt Settlement”) in exchange for units (the “Debt Units”), which Debt Units have the same terms as the units to be issued on conversion of the Special Warrants, all as further described below.
Special Warrant Offering
The Special Warrants will automatically convert to units (the “Units”) upon the earlier of the receipt for a prospectus qualifying the distribution of the Units or four months and a day from the closing date of the Offering. Each Unit will be comprised of one common share of the Company (each, a “Common Share”) and one Common Share purchase warrant (each, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to acquire one Common Share (a “Warrant Share”) at an exercise price of $0.15 per Warrant Share for a period of 24 months following the deemed exercise date of the Special Warrants.
Finder’s fees of $14,169 cash and 188,930 finder’s warrants (each a “Finder’s Warrant”) were paid and issued in conjunction with the Offering. Each Finder’s Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one common share of the Company (each a “Finder’s Warrant Share”) at an exercise price of $0.15 per Finder’s Warrant Share until March 7, 2024.
All securities issued under the Offering will be subject to a statutory 4-month plus one day hold period, which expires on July 8, 2022, in accordance with applicable Canadian securities laws.
The Company intends to use net proceeds from the Offering primarily for the build-out of the Company’s Michigan, USA extraction facility and for general working capital.
The Company may elect to qualify the distribution of the Common Shares and Warrants issuable upon exercise of the Special Warrants by way of a supplement (“Prospectus Supplement”) to the Company’s short form base shelf prospectus dated March 4, 2021. The Company is under no obligation to file a Prospectus Supplement, and may elect to do so in its sole discretion. The Special Warrants and Warrants will not be listed on any stock exchange or over‐the‐counter market.
Three insiders of the Company subscribed for a total of 656,666 Special Warrants in connection with the Offering. Such participation is considered to be a “related party transaction” as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 (“MI 61-101”). The transaction was exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101, as neither the fair market value of any securities issued to nor the consideration paid by such persons exceeded 25% of the Company’s market capitalization.
Pursuant to the Debt Settlement, the Company has issued 2,752,448 Debt Units for a total debt settlement of $206,433. Debt settled by insiders of the Company accounted for 1,035,073 Debt Units representing approximately $77,630 of the Debt Settlement. Such participation constituted a “related party transaction” within MI 61-101. The issuance to the insiders is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as the fair market value of the securities issued, or the consideration paid by such persons, did not exceed 25% of the Company’s market capitalization.
All securities issued under the Debt Settlement will be subject to a statutory 4-month plus one day hold period, which expires on July 8, 2022, in accordance with applicable Canadian securities laws.
The Company also announces that it has granted incentive stock options to certain directors, officers, and consultants of the Company to purchase up to 4,225,000 common shares in the capital of the Company pursuant to the Company’s stock option plan. The options are exercisable on or before March 8, 2025 at an exercise price of $0.075 per share. The grant of options is subject to regulatory approval.
