TORONTO, Dec. 13, 2016 /CNW/ - GreenSpace Brands Inc. ("GreenSpace" or the "Company") (TSXV: JTR) is pleased to announce that it has amended the terms of its previously announced bought deal offering of subscription receipts (the "Public Subscription Receipts") of the Company (the "Public Offering"). Under the amended terms of the Public Offering, a syndicate of underwriters (the "Underwriters") led by Beacon Securities Limited ("Beacon") have agreed to purchase, on a bought deal basis, an aggregate of 3,625,000 Public Subscription Receipts (the "Public Subscription Receipts") at a price of $1.20 per Public Subscription Receipt (the "Issue Price") for aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of $4,350,000 (the "Public Offering"). As announced in the Company's press release dated December 12, 2016, the Company intends to complete a concurrent private placement offering of 2,916,667 subscription receipts (the "Private Subscription Receipts", and together with the Public Subscription Receipts, the "Subscription Receipts") at the Issue Price for gross proceeds of $3,500,000 (the "Private Placement", and together with the Public Offering, the "Offering"). Under the amended terms, the gross proceeds from the Offering shall be $7,850,000.40 (excluding exercise of the Over-Allotment Option (as defined below)). Each Subscription Receipt is convertible into one common share (a "Common Share") (subject to adjustment in certain circumstances) in the capital of GreenSpace. Additional details regarding the Subscription Receipts can be found in the Company's press release dated December 12, 2016.
In addition, the Company has granted the Underwriters an option (the "Over-Allotment Option"), exercisable, in whole or in part, by Beacon, on behalf of the Underwriters, giving notice to the Company at any time and from time to time up to 30 days following the Closing Date (as defined below), to purchase, or to find substituted purchasers for, up to an additional number of Public Subscription Receipts (or Common Shares if the Over-Allotment Option is exercised after the completion of the Acquisition) equal to 15% of the Public Subscription Receipts sold pursuant to the Public Offering at a price equal to the Issue Price to cover over-allotments, if any, and for market stabilization purposes. In the event the Over-Allotment Option is exercised in full, the gross proceeds to the Company under the Offering shall be $8,502,500.40.
The closing of the Offering is expected to occur on or about January 10, 2017 (the "Closing Date") and is subject to the completion of formal documentation and receipt of regulatory approval, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. The net proceeds of the Offering will be used to acquire all of the issued and outstanding shares of Nothing But Nature Inc. and general corporate purposes.
The Public Subscription Receipts may be offered in the United States to Qualified Institutional Buyers pursuant to exemptions from the registration requirements of the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "U.S. Securities Act") pursuant to Rule 144A thereunder, in a manner that does not require the Public Subscription Receipts to be registered in the United States.
