TORONTO, Feb. 9, 2018 /CNW/ - High Hampton Holdings Corp. (CSE: HC)(FSE: 0HCN) ("High Hampton" or the "Company") today announced its intention to complete a non-brokered private placement (the "Offering") for gross proceeds of up to CDN $7,500,000.
Pursuant to the Offering, High Hampton intends to issue up to 12,500,000 units of the Company (the "Units") at a price of $0.60 per Unit. Each Unit will consist of one common share of the Company (each a "Common Share") and one Common Share purchase warrant (each a "Warrant"). Each Warrant shall entitle the holder thereof to purchase one additional Common Share at an exercise price of $0.90 for a period of 24 months following the closing of the Offering. The completion of the Offering is subject to regulatory approval.
The Offering will be conducted under available exemptions from prospectus requirements of applicable securities legislation and participation in the Offering will be available to existing shareholders in qualifying jurisdictions in Canada in accordance with the provisions of British Columbia Instrument 45-534 (and in similar instruments in other Provinces of Canada) (the "Existing Shareholder Exemption"). The Company has set February 8, 2018 as the record date for the purpose of determining shareholders entitled to participate in the Offering in reliance on the Existing Shareholder Exemption. Qualifying shareholders who wish to participate in the Offering should contact the Company at the contact information set forth below. If the Offering is over subscribed for, Units will be allocated pro-rata amongst all subscribers.
There is no minimum offering size for the Offering and the maximum number of Units proposed to be issued is 12,500,000 Units for gross proceeds of $7,500,000. The Company intends to use net proceeds of the Offering as follows: up to $6,000,000 to complete phase one of its Coachella development, up to $725,000 towards finance strategic growth opportunities, and up to $250,000 for general and corporate purposes. The intended use of proceeds may vary based upon a number of factors. A commission of 7% cash and 7% finder's warrants may be payable in connection with this Offering.
The decision to raise funds was made as the Company nears the award of its conditional use permit ("CUP") for its wholly-owned CoachellaGro operation and plans to begin construction of the greenhouse facility as soon as possible thereafter. High Hampton has received comments from Coachella city staff regarding the design of this facility. The comments were minor and did not have any significant effect on the engineering plans. High Hampton is encouraged by this and expects to appear before the city's planning commision within 45 days before the application proceeds to City Council for final approval.
None of the securities issued in the Offering will be 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.
