TSX Venture Exchange
TORONTO, Aug. 30, 2018 /CNW/ - Datametrex AI Limited (the "Company" or "Datametrex") (TSXV: DM, FSE: D4G) is pleased to announce the implementation of an early exercise warrant program (the "Program") designed to encourage the early exercise of 52,415,000 unlisted warrants with an exercise price of $0.15 per warrant and an expiration date of May 20, 2019 and 11,058,175 unlisted warrants with an exercise price of $0.15 per warrant with an expiration date of June 6th, 2019 (the "Warrants"). The Program will be open to eligible Canadian holders of the Warrants until September 29, 2018 (the "Early Exercise Period").
Based upon the expressed interest of some existing holders of Warrants to directly own common shares (the "Graph Shares") in the capital of Graph Blockchain Limited ("Graph Blockchain"), a joint venture entity of the Company that specializes in developing private blockchain solutions, the Company wishes to offer the right to receive Graph Shares as an incentive for the early exercise of the Warrants.
Details of the Early Exercise Warrant Program:
Subject to availability, each eligible holder of Warrants who participates in the Program will receive one (1) common share ("DM Share") in the capital of the Company (at a value of $0.06) and 0.3 Graph Shares (at a deemed value of $0.09) for every one (1) Warrant exercised. Put another way, each eligible holder of Warrants will receive ten (10) DM Shares and three (3) Graph Shares for every ten (10) Warrants exercised.
Datametrex will allocate 13,333,332 of the Graph Shares which it currently holds in Graph Blockchain (at a deemed value of $4,000,000) for allocation pursuant to the terms of the Program. As a result, under the Program, the Company may raise aggregate gross proceeds of up to $6,666,666 through the exercise of up to 44,444,440 Warrants, resulting in the issuance of up to 44,444,440 DM Shares and transfer of up to 13,333,332 Graph Shares.
Pursuant to the terms of the Program, any fractional DM Share or Graph Share that a warrantholder is otherwise entitled to receive will be rounded down to the nearest whole share. Insiders of the Company who hold Warrants will not be eligible to participate in the Program.
In the event that the number of Warrants exercised exceeds the number of Graph Shares reserved under the Program, all warrantholders who have exercised their Warrants will be subject to a pro-rata adjustment. Any Warrants that are unable to be exercised as a result of this pro-rata adjustment will be returned to holders on their original terms.
Holders of Warrants who wish to participate in the Program will agree to exercise their Warrants pursuant to the terms of such Warrants and to deliver the required documentation in connection with the Program.
If Warrants are not exercised prior to the end of the Early Exercise Period, the Warrants will remain outstanding and continue to be exercisable on the same terms applicable to such Warrants as they existed prior to the Program.
The Program is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
"This is an advantageous deal for all parties involved: 1) for every ten Warrants exercised, the holder receives ten (10) full common shares of Datametrex as well as three (3) shares in Graph Blockchain, 2) existing shareholders of the Company are not further diluted by an additional equity financing and 3) the Company does not add extra leverage to its balance sheet. The proceeds from the Warrant exercise will allow the Company to accelerate developments of all its operating silos – Nexalogy, Graph Blockchain and Ronin Blockchain Corp., which will further advance shareholder value," says Andrew Ryu, CEO and Chairman of the Company.
