NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO US NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES
BURNABY, BC, March 28, 2012 /CNW/ - Legend Power Systems Inc. (TSX.V: LPS) ("Legend Power" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has completed the brokered private placement (the "Offering") previously announced in its news release of January 19, 2012, updates of which were provided in its news releases of March 14, 2012 and March 26, 2012. The agent for the Offering was Ionic Securities Ltd. (the "Agent").
The Offering consisted of 16,029,664 units ("Units") of the Company at a price of $0.08 per Unit for gross proceeds of $1,282,373. Each Unit consists of one common share of Legend Power (a "Share") and one common share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each whole Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one Share (a "Warrant Share") at a price of $0.15 per Warrant Share for a period of 18 months following the closing of the Offering; provided, however, that the exercise of the Warrants will be conditional upon either (the "Warrant Conditions"): (a) shareholder approval of an increase in the authorized capital so as to allow for the exercise of all outstanding convertible securities of Legend Power (including the Warrants and the Compensation Warrants, described below); or (b) the date on which a sufficient number of outstanding convertible securities of Legend Power expire so that all outstanding convertible securities of Legend Power (including the Warrants and Compensation Warrants) can be exercised within Legend Power's current authorized capital. If these conditions are not satisfied before the date that is 18 months following the closing of the Offering, then Legend Power will redeem the Warrants at a redemption price of $0.0001 per outstanding Warrant. If either (a) or (b) above has been satisfied after the applicable four month resale restricted period and the Shares listed on the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") trade above, and remain above, $0.45 for 20 or more consecutive trading days (an "Acceleration Event"), Legend Power will be entitled to accelerate the expiry of the Warrants to the date that is 30 calendar days following the date Legend Power gives written notice thereof to the holders of the Warrants.
The Agent (and applicable subagents) received a cash commission equal to approximately 5% of the gross proceeds raised and compensation warrants (the "Compensation Warrants") to acquire that number of Units equal to approximately 8% of the Units sold under the Offering. Each Compensation Warrant is exercisable into one Unit (a "Broker Unit") at an exercise price of $0.08 per Broker Unit for a period of 18 months from closing; provided, however, that the Compensation Warrants may not be exercised until such time as one of the Warrant Conditions have occurred. If neither of the Warrant Conditions occurs before the date that is 18 months from the Closing Date, then Legend Power will redeem the Compensation Warrants at a redemption price of $0.0001 per outstanding Compensation Warrant. Each Broker Unit shall have the same terms as the Units sold under the Offering. Legend Power also reimbursed the Agent for their fees and expenses incurred in connection with the Offering.
All securities issued in connection with the Offering, including any Warrant Shares or Broker Units issuable upon the exercise of the Warrants or Compensation Warrants, as applicable, are subject to a statutory hold period expiring on July 29, 2012. Final acceptance of the Offering by the Exchange is subject to filing of final documentation.
The proceeds from the Offering will be used by Legend Power to fund its sales operations in Ontario and British Columbia, and for working capital.
In addition, pursuant to the agency agreement between Legend Power and the Agent, Legend Power has agreed that, subject to Exchange approval, the Agent is entitled to select two directors to be appointed to the Legend Power board of directors. The selection of at least one such director shall occur within 6 months of the closing of the Offering.
