Each Unit consists of one common share of the Company (each a "Common Share") and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant of the Company (each whole Common Share purchase warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share at a price equal to $0.70 for a period of 30 months. Provided, however, that if the volume-weighted average trading price of the Common Shares on the Canadian Securities Exchange (the "Exchange") exceeds $1.05 for a period of 20 consecutive trading days (the "Acceleration Trigger") following the closing of the Offering, the Company will be entitled to accelerate the exercise of the Warrants to a period ending not less than 21 days from the date written notice of such Acceleration Trigger is provided to the Warrant holders. It is expected the Warrants will begin trading on May 7, 2019 on the Exchange under the symbol "CANN.WT".
The Units were offered pursuant to an underwriting agreement dated April 16, 2019 (the "Underwriting Agreement") between the Company and a syndicate of dealers led by Cormark Securities Inc. and including PI Financial Corp., Canaccord Genuity Corp. and Desjardins Capital Markets (collectively the "Underwriters"). Pursuant to the Underwriting Agreement, the Underwriters received a cash commission equal to 7% of the gross proceeds of the Offering and broker warrants equal to 7% of the Units sold under the Offering (each, a "Broker Warrant"), with each Broker Warrant exercisable for one Unit at the Offering Price for a period of 36 months following the closing of the Offering.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the Offering to increase extraction capacity and follow-on investments in existing portfolio companies, new domestic and international opportunities, working capital and general corporate purposes.
The Units were issued pursuant to a short form prospectus dated May 1, 2019, filed with the securities regulatory authorities in British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario and Nova Scotia (the "Prospectus").
