/NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR
DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES/
TORONTO, April 27 /CNW/ - Boyuan Construction Group, Inc., (TSX-V: BOY &
BOY.DB) a leading builder of commercial, residential and municipal
infrastructure projects in China's fast-growing regions of the Yangtze River
Delta and the city of Sanya on Hainan Island, announced today that it has
engaged Haywood Securities Inc. to act as financial advisor and agent for a
brokered private placement unit offering expected to generate gross proceeds
of up to $7.0 million (CDN).
The offering will consist of units, each priced at $1,000. Each unit will
consist of 125 common shares, each with a deemed value of $2.00, one secured
convertible debenture with a par value of $750, 250 warrants to purchase
common shares at $2.00 each for a period of up to four years, and 500
non-transferable rights entitling the holder to receive one share upon
exercise of a "Make Good Provision."
Each Convertible Debenture bears an interest rate of 11.75% per annum,
paid quarterly in arrears and matures on February 28, 2013. Each Convertible
Debenture is, at the election of the holder, convertible into 375 common
shares of Boyuan at the conversion price of $2.00 per common share of Boyuan
plus accrued interest paid in cash. The Conversion Right may be exercised at
the option of the holder commencing one day after closing of the private
placement and until the close of business on the sixth day prior to the
Maturity Date. Holders of Convertible Debentures will be prevented from
converting their Convertible Debentures to the extent that any holder of such
Convertible Debentures would, upon conversion of such debentures, hold 20% or
more of the total issued and outstanding the common shares of Boyuan. Each
Convertible Debenture will be redeemable by Boyuan, at the option of the
holder, subject to certain redemption conditions.
Each Right will entitle the holder, upon exercise, to receive one make
good escrowed share of Boyuan. Each Right will be exercisable during the
Rights Exercise Period. The Rights Exercise Period shall commence on the date
that Boyuan files on SEDAR its audited annual financial statements for the
year ended June 30, 2010 and ending 30 days thereafter. Any unexercised Rights
will expire on November 30, 2010.
Under the "Make Good Provision," certain members of Boyuan's management
have agreed to deposit into escrow up to 3.5 million common shares (which will
be issued upon the conversion of Class A Series 1 preferred shares currently
held by certain members of management of Boyuan) equal to the dollar amount of
units purchased at closing of the financing. In the event that Boyuan''s
financial statements for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2010 reflect less
than US$11.5 million of after tax net income, the escrow agent, upon exercise
or deemed exercise, of the Rights during the Rights Exercise Period, will
transfer to the holder of the Rights for no additional consideration, one Make
Good Escrowed Share for each Right exercised by such holder. Following the
expiry of the Rights Exercise Period, all shares remaining in escrow will be
transferred back to Boyuan's management.
The private placement, which is subject to the completion of definitive
documentation and regulatory approval, is expected to close by May 15, 2009.
The net proceeds raised by the offering will be used to fund new
construction projects, procure additional equipment, meet insurance bonding
requirements related to new projects and for general working capital purposes.
