Valens GroWorks (CSE:VGW)(CSE:VGW.CN) (the “Company” or “Valens“), a vertically integrated provider of cannabis products, is pleased to announce a non-brokered private placement of up to 4,000,000 units (the “Units“) at a price of $1.00 per Unit for gross proceeds of up to $4,000,000 (the “Offering“).
The net proceeds of the Offering will be used for plant expansion, including additional growing and oil extraction capacity at existing facilities, marketing & branding initiatives and other growth opportunities and general corporate purposes.
The Company anticipates significant insider participation in the Offering. The issuance of those Units to the insiders will be considered related party transactions within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 (“MI 61-101“). The Company intends to rely on the exemptions from the requirements of MI 61-101 in respect of any Insider Participation.
Each Unit will consist of one common share of the Company (a “Common Share“) and one-half of a Common Share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant“). Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share at a price of $1.50 for a period of 12 months from the closing of the Offering, subject to the acceleration provision described below. The Units will be made available by way of prospectus exemptions in Canada and in such other jurisdictions as the Company may agree where the Units can be issued on a private placement basis, exempt from any prospectus, registration or other similar requirements.
The Company will be entitled to accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants to the date that is 30 days following the date the Company issues a news release announcing that the published closing price of the Common Shares on the Canadian Securities Exchange (the “CSE“) has been equal to or greater than $2.00 for ten consecutive trading days after the hold period on the Common Shares has expired.
Closing of the Offering is expected to occur on or about August 18, 2017 (the “Closing”) and is subject to regulatory approval including that of the CSE. The Company may pay a finder’s fee on the non-insider portion of the Offering within the amount permitted by the policies of the CSE.
All securities issued in connection with the Offering will be subject to a statutory hold period of four months plus a day from the date of issuance in accordance with applicable securities legislation.
