VANCOUVER, June 27, 2018 /CNW/ - Schooner Capital Corp. ("SCC" or the "Corporation") (TSXV: SCH.P) is pleased to announce that it has successfully completed its initial public offering of 2,350,000 common shares of the Corporation ("Common Shares") at a price of $0.10 per Common Share for gross proceeds of $235,000 (the "Offering"). After completion of the Offering, the Corporation now has 4,750,000 Common Shares issued and outstanding.
PI Financial Corp. (the "Agent") acted as the agent for the Offering and in connection therewith, the Corporation granted the Agent non-transferable options (the "Agent's Options") which entitle the Agent to purchase 235,000 Common Shares at an exercise price $0.10 per Common Share for a period of 24 months from the date the Common Shares were first listed on the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange"), which was June 27, 2018. In connection with the Offering, the Agent also received a cash commission equal to 10% of the gross proceeds of the Offering, a corporate finance fee, and was reimbursed for its legal fees and reasonable expenses.
Concurrent with the closing of the Offering, the Corporation also granted options to acquire an aggregate of 475,000 Common Shares at an exercise price of $0.10 per Common Share to directors and officers of the Corporation, which options expire five years from the date of grant.
The Corporation is a "capital pool company" and intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering to identify and evaluate assets or businesses for acquisition with a view to completing a "Qualifying Transaction" under the policies of the Exchange. On June 25, 2018, the Exchange issued a bulletin listing the Common Shares as of market open on June 27, 2018 and immediately halting trading pending completion of closing (the "Exchange Bulletin"). It is expected that the Common Shares will resume trading under the trading symbol "SCH.P" on June 29, 2018.
Investors are cautioned that trading in the securities of a capital pool company should be considered highly speculative.
