Sweet Earth Holdings Corp. (CSE: SE) (FSE: 1KZ1) (“Sweet Earth” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce further to its news release dated August 21, 2020 it has closed a non-brokered private placement of 13.4 million units (“Units”) of the Company at a price of $0.20 per Unit to raise total proceeds of approximately $2,682,000 (the “Offering”).
Each Unit consists of one (1) common share in the capital of the Company (a “Share“) and one (1) transferable common share purchase warrant of the Company (a “Warrant“). Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional common share (a “Warrant Share“) at an exercise price of $0.25 per Share for a period of 12 months from the closing date of the Offering.
In connection with the Offering, the Company paid cash finder’s fees in the amount of $4,200 and issued a total of 21,000 broker warrants (the “Broker Warrants“). The Broker warrants have the same terms as the Warrants issued under the Offering, but are non-transferable.
All securities issued in connection with the Offering will be subject to a statutory four-month hold period expiring December 26, 2020.
The Company intends to use the proceeds from the Offering for the development of new product lines, company and new product marketing costs, as well as working capital and general corporate purposes.
Three directors of the Company participated in the Offering and acquired an aggregate of 300,000 Units. Such participation constituted a “related party transaction” as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61‐101 (“MI 61‐101“). The issuance to the directors is 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.
