Not for distribution to United States newswire services or for dissemination in the United States
TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / February 15, 2019 / BeWhere Holdings Inc. (TSXV: BEW) (the “Corporation“) is pleased to announce that it has closed its private placement (the “Private Placement“) of units of the Corporation (“Units“) for gross proceeds of $4,025,000 at a price of $0.19 per Unit.
Each Unit consists of one common share in the capital of the Corporation (a “Common Share“) and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant (each whole Common Share purchase warrant, a “Warrant“). Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share at an exercise price of $0.35 for a period of five years following the closing of the Private Placement.
The Private Placement was conducted on an agency basis by PI Financial Corp. (the “Agent“).
The Agent has been paid a cash commission. The Agent and members of its selling group also received 1,022,368 broker warrants. Each broker warrant entitles the holder to purchase a Common Share at $0.19 per Common Share for a period of five years following the closing of the Private Placement.
The net proceeds of the Private Placement will be used for purchase of inventory, for working capital and for expansion of operations in Europe.
The Common Shares and Warrants are subject to a statutory four month hold period, which expires June 16, 2019.
The Corporation also announces that it has entered into an Investor Rights Agreement with a strategic investor pursuant to which such investor, subject to certain restrictions, is entitled to nominate a director to the board of directors of the Corporation and appoint an observer to attend directors meetings.
As a result of insiders of the Company participating in the Private Placement, the Private Placement is a “related party transaction” within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 (“MI 61-101“), which requires the Company to obtain “minority approval” of the Company’s shareholders of the related party transaction unless there is an exemption from such requirement. The Company is relying on the exemption in Section 5.7(a) of MI 61-101 on the basis that the fair market value of the securities distributed to all related parties, in the aggregate, was less than 25% of the Company’s market capitalization.
