VANCOUVER, March 13, 2017 /CNW/ - PUF Ventures Inc. ("PUF" or the "Company") (CSE: PUF) (Frankfurt: PU3) (OTCPK: PUFXF) is pleased to announce that it has completed a non‑brokered private placement of 7,656,500 units issued at a price of $0.25 per unit, raising gross proceeds of $1,914,125. Each unit consists of one common share and one transferable common share purchase warrant, with each warrant entitling the holder to acquire one additional common share of the Company at a price of $0.40 per common share for two years from the date of issuance.
The Company paid finder's fees of 6% cash and 6% finder's warrants to Echelon Wealth Partners Inc. and Fairwater Consulting Limited. The finder's warrants were issued on the same terms as the unit warrants.
The net proceeds of the private placement will be used for completion of the Company's AAA Heidelberg ACMPR license application, expansion of the VapeTronix portfolio and associated technologies, and for general working capital.
Derek Ivany, President and CEO of the Company stated, "We are extremely pleased with the overwhelming support from the investment community in completing this oversubscribed financing. Further, over the past several weeks, we have been fortunate to receive proceeds from the exercise of warrants that add an additional $438,285 to the treasury. Combined, this working capital puts PUF in a very strong financial position from which to continue executing on our plan of becoming a successful ACMPR licensed grower."
