Vodis Announces Closing of Private Placement
Vancouver, British Columbia / TheNewswire / December 15, 2017 – Vodis Pharmaceuticals Inc. (CSE:VP, FWB:1JV1) (“Vodis” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the closing of a non-brokered private placement of 8,060,000 units (each, an “Offered Unit") at a price of $0.25 per Offered Unit (the “Offering”) for gross proceeds of $2,015,000. The proceeds from the Offering will be used to complete the expansion of the Company’s facility in Bellingham, Washington, and the process of upgrading its Delta, BC, location, and for general working capital and corporate purposes.
Each Offered Unit consisted of one common share of the Company and one common share purchase warrant, whereby each warrant entitles the holder thereof to acquire one additional common share of the Company at a price of $0.33 for a period of five (5) years from the date of issuance. All securities issuable in connection with the Offering are subject to a statutory hold period of four months following the date of issuance.
A director of the Company participated in the Offering by purchasing an aggregate of 1,300,000 Offered Units. Accordingly, the Offering constituted to that extent a related party transaction as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”). The transaction is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101, as neither the fair market value of any shares issued to, nor the consideration paid by such person, exceeded 25% of the Company's market capitalization. Further, neither the Company nor the related party has knowledge of any material information concerning the Company or its securities that has not been generally disclosed.
This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or solicitation of an offer to buy the securities in any jurisdiction. The securities will not be and have not been registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933 and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or applicable exemption from the registration requirements.
