TORONTO, March 4, 2020 /CNW/ - Canada House Wellness Group Inc. (CSE: CHV) ("Canada House" or the "Company"), is pleased to announce that it has closed a Non-Brokered financing of units ("Units") resulting in the issuance of 93,771,428 Units for total gross proceeds to the Company of $2,625,600 (the "Offering").
Each Unit was sold at a price of $0.028 per Unit and is comprised of: (i) one common share (each a "Common Share"); and (ii) and one detachable common share purchase warrant of the Company (each, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant is exercisable into one Common Share at an exercise price of $0.05 for a period of 36 months following the closing date of the Offering. The net proceeds from the Offering are expected to be used for general operating and working capital purposes.
All securities issued in connection with the Offering are subject to a statutory hold period expiring four months and one day after the closing of the Offering. Completion of the Offering is subject to regulatory approval.
The Company may issue up to a further 13,371,428 Units under the Offering for gross proceeds of $374,400.
None of the securities issued have been registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "1933 Act"), and none of them may be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the 1933 Act. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of the securities in any state where such offer, solicitation, or sale would be unlawful.
An insider of the Company subscribed to 10,714,286 Units for gross proceeds of $300,000. As a result, the subscription by such insider is considered to be a "related party transaction" as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101- Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). Such subscription 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 or the consideration paid by such person exceeded 25% of the market capitalization of Canada House. The material change report in connection with the Offering was not filed 21 days in advance of the issuance for the purposes of Section 5.2(2) of MI 61-101 on the basis that the closing of the Offering is to occur prior to such 21 day period.
