OTTAWA, Jan. 19, 2018 /CNW/ - National Access Cannabis Corp. ("NAC" or the "Company") (TSXV: NAC), Canada's best practices leader in delivering secure, safe, and responsible access to legal medical cannabis, announces that it intends to issue, by way of non-brokered private placement, up to 10,909,091 units of the Company ("Units") at a purchase price of $0.55 per Unit (the "Offering Price") for gross proceeds of up to $6,000,000 (the "Offering"). Each Unit will be 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 shall entitle 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. 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. Commencing on the date which is four months following the closing of the Offering, the Company shall have the right, on not less than 15 days prior written notice to the holder (the "Acceleration Notice"), which Acceleration Notice shall be sent within five trading days immediately following such 10 trading day period, to accelerate the expiry date to a day which is not less than 15 days following the date of the Acceleration Notice.
It is anticipated that the proceeds of the Offering (after deduction of costs of fees incurred) 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.
The Company may pay finder's fees to one or more eligible persons ("Finders") consisting of a cash payment of up to 6% of gross proceeds raised from applicable subscriptions in the Offering and the issuance of Finder's warrants ("Finder's Warrants") of up to 6% of the number of Units issued pursuant to applicable subscriptions in the Offering. Each Finder's Warrant will entitle 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.
Completion of the Offering is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV"). The TSXV has not approved the Offering Price or the Exercise Price and these remain subject to the change. The Units issued in connection with the Offering and the underlying Common Shares, Warrants and Warrant Shares will be subject to a statutory hold period of four months plus one day from the date of completion of the Offering, in accordance with applicable securities legislation.
