OTTAWA, Jan. 31, 2018 /CNW/ - National Access Cannabis Corp. ("NAC" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: NAC), Canada's best practices leader in delivering secure, safe, and responsible access to legal medical cannabis announces that it has completed its previously announced non-brokered private placement offering (the "Offering"), pursuant to which the Company issued 10,909,091 units of the Company ("Units") at a price of $0.55 per Unit for gross proceeds to NAC of $6,000,000. The lead orders in the Offering were from Brett Wilson, the founder of FirstEnergy Capital Corp. and Chuck Rifici, the Chairman of the board of directors of NAC.
Each of the Units issued under the Offering is comprised of one common share in the capital of the Company ("Common Share") and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant (each whole Common Share purchase warrant, a "Warrant"). Each whole Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share (a "Warrant Share") at a price of $0.90 (the "Exercise Price") per Warrant Share, subject to adjustment in certain events, for a period of 24 months following the closing of the Offering. Commencing on the date which is four months following the closing of the Offering, and subject to certain conditions, the Company shall have the right to accelerate expiry of the Warrants at any time where the volume weighted average trading price of the Common Shares for any 10 consecutive trading day period is greater than $1.10. The securities issued pursuant to the Offering are subject to a statutory hold period under applicable securities legislation until May 31, 2018.
The net proceeds from the Offering will be used for general corporate purposes and future working capital. Although the Company intends to use the proceeds of the Offering as described above, the actual allocation of proceeds may vary from the uses set forth above, depending on future operations or unforeseen events or opportunities.
In connection with the closing of the Offering, the Company paid a finder's fee to Intrynsyc Capital Corporation, an arm's length eligible person, consisting of a cash payment in the aggregate amount of $194,345.71 and an aggregate of 353,356 finder's warrants ("Finder's Warrants"). Each Finder's Warrant entitles the holder to acquire one Common Share at a price equal to the Exercise Price for a period of 24 months from the closing of the Offering.
