Global Cannabis Closes First Tranche of Private Placement
October 30, 2018 (Source) — Global Cannabis Applications Corp. (“GCAC” or the “Company”) (CSE: APP, FSE: 2FA, OTCQB: FUAPF), a leading developer of innovative data technologies for the medical cannabis industry, announces it has closed the first tranche of its non-brokered private placement (the “Private Placement”).
Pursuant to the Private Placement, the Company has issued 2,916,116 units at a price of $0.18 per unit (the “Financing Units”) for gross proceeds of $524,900.88. Each Financing Unit consists of one common share and one common share purchase warrant, whereby each warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional common share of the Company for a period of two years from closing at an exercise price of $0.33 per common share.
Finders’ fees in the form of cash commissions totalling $31,598.07 and non-transferable finders’ warrants totalling 175,544, representing 7% of the gross proceeds from certain subscribers and 7% of the number of Financing Units distributed, respectively, have been paid and issued to certain arm’s-length finders. Each finder’s warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional common share of the Company for a period of two years from closing at an exercise price of $0.33 per common share.
Net proceeds from the Private Placement will be used for working capital and general corporate purposes.
In addition, in connection with the Private Placement, the Company has settled an aggregate of $197,499.96 in debt though the issuance of 1,097,222 units, each issued at a deemed value of $0.18 (the Creditor Units”), to various creditors, one of whom is a director and officer of the Company. Each Creditor Unit also consists of one common share and one common share purchase warrant, whereby each warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional common share of the Company for a period of two years from closing at an exercise price of $0.33 per common share.
All securities issued in connection with the Private Placement are subject to a statutory hold period of four months from the date of issuance.
A director and officer of the Company participated in the Private Placement by receiving 275,000 Creditor Units enabling the Company to settle $49,500.00 in debt through the issuance of securities. Accordingly, the Private Placement constituted to that extent a related party transaction as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”). The transaction is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101, as neither the fair market value of any securities issued to, nor the amount of the debt extinguished, exceeded 25% of the Company’s market capitalization. Further, neither the Company nor the related party has knowledge of any material information concerning the Company or its securities that has not been generally disclosed. The material change report in connection with the Private Placement was not filed 21 days in advance of the closing of the Private Placement for the purposes of Section 5.2(2) of MI 61-101 on the basis that the Debt Settlement and Subscription Agreement under the Private Placement was not available to the Company until shortly before the closing.
The securities offered have not been, and will not be, registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “U.S. Securities Act”), or any U.S. state securities laws, and may not be offered or sold in the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, a U.S. Person (as defined in Regulation S under the U.S. Securities Act) absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the U.S. Securities Act and applicable U.S. state securities laws. This news release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy securities in the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, any U.S. Person, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
