OTTAWA, April 9, 2018 /CNW/ - CannaRoyalty Corp. (CSE:CRZ) (OTCQX:CNNRF) ("CannaRoyalty" or the "Company") announced today that it has received a receipt for a final prospectus (the "Prospectus") of the Company from the securities regulators in each of the provinces of Canada (other than Quebec) with respect to its previously announced $15,000,000 bought deal offering of units of the Company (the "Offering").
The Offering is expected to close on April 13, 2018 and is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary regulatory and stock exchange approvals, including approval of the Canadian Securities Exchange and applicable securities regulatory authorities.
Cancellation of Early Warrant Exercise Incentive Program
Further to the Company's March 21, 2018 press release disclosing a proposed warrant exercise incentive program, the Company has determined that it would not be practical to proceed with the program under this Prospectus due to timing constraints. The Company intends to announce a new program providing an early exercise incentive to holders of certain of its outstanding common share purchase warrants in due course.
