CALGARY, April 19, 2017 /CNW/ - Pool Safe Inc. (NEX: PDR.H) ("Pool Safe" or the "Corporation"), a capital pool company listed on the NEX board (the "NEX") of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange"), is pleased to announce that it completed its previously announced qualifying transaction (the "Qualifying Transaction") with Pool Safe Inc. ("PSI"). Among the conditions imposed by the Exchange for completion of the Qualifying Transaction was a requirement that the Corporation complete a concurrent financing.
As a part of the Qualifying Transaction, the Corporation changed its name from "Pounder Venture Capital Corp." to "Pool Safe Inc." and consolidated its outstanding common shares on the basis of one post-consolidation common share for every four pre-consolidation common shares (each post-consolidation common share, a "Post-Consolidation Pounder Share"). Following these changes, PSI amalgamated with 2570184 Ontario Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Corporation formed solely for the purpose of facilitating the Qualifying Transaction (the "Amalgamation"). In accordance with the terms of the Amalgamation, the Corporation purchased all of the issued and outstanding common shares of PSI (each, a "PSI Share") on the basis of 28 Post-Consolidation Pounder Shares for each one PSI Share outstanding immediately prior to the amalgamation. In addition, Pounder issued warrants exercisable to purchase Post-Consolidation Pounder Shares (each a "Pounder Warrant") in exchange for PSI Warrants (as defined below) on the basis of 28 Pounder Warrants for each PSI Warrant outstanding immediately prior to the Amalgamation. Each Pounder Warrant will be exercisable at a price $0.178 for a period of two years from April 18, 2017.
The Corporation completed its concurrent financing (the "Concurrent Financing") with the Qualifying Transaction, raising gross proceeds of approximately $1.25 million through the sale of 247,268 units of the Corporation (each a "PSI Unit") at a price of $3.17 per PSI Unit and the sale of 147,448 subscription receipts (each a "Subscription Receipt") at a price of $3.17 per Subscription Receipt. Each PSI Unit consists of one PSI Share and one half of one warrant to purchase one PSI Share at a price of $5.00 for a period of two years from the date of issuance (each whole warrant, a "PSI Warrant"). In connection with the completion of the Qualifying Transaction, the Subscription Receipts converted on a one-for-one basis into a total of 147,448 PSI Units. Echelon Wealth Partners Inc. (the "Agent") acted as agent for the Subscription Receipt portion of the Concurrent Financing (the "Brokered Concurrent Financing"). In connection with the Brokered Concurrent Financing, the Agent received a cash commission equal to 7% of the gross proceeds raised under the Brokered Concurrent Financing, and non-transferable compensation options to acquire in aggregate that number of PSI Units which is equal to 7% of the number of Subscription Receipts issued under the Brokered Concurrent Financing (the "PSI Agent's Options"). Each such PSI Agent's Option is exercisable to purchase, subject to adjustment in accordance with the terms of the certificate representing the PSI Agent's Option, one PSI Unit at the price of $3.17 for a period of 24 months from April 18, 2017. A fee of 2% of the gross proceeds of the PSI Unit portion of the Concurrent Financing was also paid, and compensation options equal to 2% of the PSI Units sold in the PSI Unit portion of the Concurrent Financing were also issued on closing of the Concurrent Financing, on the same terms as the PSI Agent's Options. Each compensation option issued in connection with the Concurrent Financing became exercisable for 28 Post-Consolidation Pounder Shares and 14 Pounder Warrants upon completion of the Qualifying Transaction.
Certain shareholders of the Corporation who are not subject to escrow under the provisions of Exchange Policy 5.4 - Escrow, Vendor Consideration and Resale Restrictions did not enter into separate lock-up agreements with the Agent in connection with the Brokered Concurrent Financing.
