Each Unit consisted of one common share of Naturally Splendid and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each a “Warrant”), with each whole Warrant entitling the holder to purchase one additional common share at $0.27 per share for a period of two years from the date of the issue. Naturally Splendid has the right to accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants if, at any time, the average closing price of Naturally Splendid’s common shares is equal to or greater than $0.35 for 10 consecutive trading days. In the event of acceleration, the expiry date will be accelerated to a date that is 30 days after Naturally Splendid issues a news release announcing that it has elected to exercise this acceleration right.
Proceeds of the private placement will be used for expansion of Naturally Splendid’s existing facilities and general working capital purposes.
The securities issued under the financing will be subject to a hold period expiring on December 15, 2018 pursuant to applicable securities laws and the rules of the TSX Venture Exchange.
Directors and officers of the Company subscribed for 1,310,186 Units under the financing. As a result, the issuance of Units to directors and officers is considered to be a related party transaction subject to TSX Venture Exchange Policy 5.9 and Multilateral Instrument 61-101. Naturally Splendid is relying on exemptions from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements provided under sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(a) of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 on the basis that participation in the private placement by insiders did not exceed 25% of the fair market value of Naturally Splendid’s market capitalization.
