Flower One Holdings Inc. (“Flower One” or the “Company”) (CSE:FONE) (OTC:FLOOF) is pleased to announce that it has filed and been receipted for an amended and restated preliminary short form prospectus (the “Prospectus”) with securities regulatory authorities in all provinces of Canada (except Québec) in connection with its overnight marketed public offering (the “Offering”) of 50,000 convertible debenture units (each, a “Debenture Unit”) of the Company for an offering size of up to $50,000,000. The Offering was previously announced on March 4, 2019 with the price and terms previously announced on March 6, 2019.
Each Debenture Unit will consist of one 9.5% unsecured convertible debenture (each, a “Convertible Debenture”) and 192 common share purchase warrants (each, a “Warrant”).
The Convertible Debentures will have a maturity of 36 months from the date of issuance (the “Maturity Date”) and the principal amount of each Convertible Debenture shall be convertible, for no additional consideration, into common shares of the Company (“Common Shares”) at the option of the holder at any time prior to the earlier of: (i) the close of business on the Maturity Date, and (ii) the business day immediately preceding the date specified by the Company for redemption of the Convertible Debentures upon a change of control at a conversion price equal to $2.60. If the holder elects to convert the Convertible Debentures after a period that is six months and one day following closing of the Offering, then the holder will also receive the Effective Interest (as defined below), payable in Common Shares at a price equal to the daily volume weighted average trading price of the Common Shares on the Canadian Securities Exchange (the “CSE”) for the consecutive 20 trading days of the Common Shares on the CSE preceding the date of such election or cash, or a combination of cash and shares at the Company’s option. The effective interest (“Effective Interest”) is an amount equal to the interest that the holder would have received if the holder had held the Convertible Debentures until the Maturity Date.
The Offering is being led by Mackie Research Capital Corporation and Canaccord Genuity Corp. (collectively, the “Lead Agents”), on behalf of a syndicate of agents including Cormark Securities Inc., Eight Capital, Industrial Alliance Securities Inc., and PI Financial Corp. (together with the Lead Agents, the “Agents”).
The Company will use commercial reasonable efforts to obtain the necessary approvals to list the Convertible Debentures, the Warrants, and the Common Shares issuable upon conversion of the Convertible Debentures and the Warrants on the CSE.
The Offering is being made pursuant to the Prospectus filed in each of the provinces of Canada (except Québec), and otherwise by private placement exemption in those jurisdictions where the Offering can lawfully be made, including the United States and Europe. The Debenture Units (and the Convertible Debentures and the Warrants forming part of the Debenture Units) have not been and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “U.S. Securities Act”), or any state securities laws, and may only be offered or sold in the United States, to or for the account or benefit of, persons in the United States or U.S. Persons (as defined in Regulation S under the U.S. Securities Act) directly by the Company to institutional “accredited investors” meeting one or more of the criteria in Rule 501(a)(1), (2), (3) or (7) of Regulation D under the U.S. Securities Act and in accordance with applicable state securities laws. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of the Debenture Units in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
