Valens GroWorks Corp. (CSE:VGW) (the “Company” or “Valens“), a multi-licenced, vertically integrated provider of cannabis products, announces that due to higher than anticipated demand and increased capital requirements in connection with its facility upgrades and production capacity, the Company is increasing its previously announced private placement to an offering of 1,000,000 units of the Company (the “Units“) at a price of $1.00 per Unit for gross proceeds of up to $1,000,000 (the “Offering“). The Corporation intends to use the net proceeds from the Offering to advance the operational capability of its Kelowna Facility and establish its initial cannabis crop. Remaining proceeds, if any, will be used for general corporate purposes.
Each Unit consists 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 are being 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 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.
