Voyager Digital Closes C$8 Million Private Placement of Special Warrants
December 15, 2020 (Source) — All monetary amounts are expressed in Canadian Dollars, unless otherwise indicated.
Voyager Digital Ltd. (CSE: VYGR) (“Voyager” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce that it has completed its previously announced Private Placement of Special Warrants raising gross proceeds of $8,050,014 (the “Financing“). The Financing was led by Stifel GMP, as sole agent and bookrunner (the “Agent“).
Pursuant to the Financing, the Company issued special warrants (“Special Warrants“) at a price of $1.50 per Special Warrant. Each Special Warrant will be convertible into one unit of the Company (each, a “Unit“) without payment of any additional consideration upon certain conditions being met. Each Unit will consist of one (1) common share of the Company, (each, a “Common Share“) and one–half of one (0.5) Common Share purchase warrant (each whole Common Share purchase warrant, a “Warrant“), with each whole Warrant being exercisable to acquire one Common Share (each, a “Warrant Share“) at an exercise price of C$2.50 per Warrant Share for a term of two (2) years following the closing of the Offering.
The Company will use its commercially reasonable efforts to qualify the distribution of the Common Shares and Warrants issuable upon exercise of the Special Warrants by way of a prospectus (“Qualifying Prospectus“) within 90 days following the closing of the Offering (the “Qualifying Condition“). The securities issued in connection with the Offering will be subject to a 4–month hold period from the date of the closing of the Offering (the “Closing Date“) unless the Qualifying Prospectus is filed and receipted within that time. If the Qualifying Condition is not met, each Special Warrant will be exercisable (for no additional consideration and with no further action on the part of the holder thereof) for 1.1 Units. Upon completion of the Offering, the Company will make an application to list the Common Shares, Warrants and Warrant Shares issuable on exercise of the Special Warrants on the Canadian Securities Exchange (the “Exchange“), subject to the Company fulfilling all of the listing requirements of the Exchange. The Special Warrants will not be listed on any stock exchange or over–the–counter market.
The Company is also pleased to announce the closing of a concurrent non-brokered private placement of 104,000 Special Warrants and 63,667 units of the Company (the “Non-Brokered Units“) at a price of $1.50 per Non-Brokered Unit for gross proceeds of $251,500.50 (the “Concurrent Financing“). Each Non-Brokered Unit is comprised of one (1) Common Share and one-half of one (0.5) Common Share purchase warrant (each whole Common Share purchase warrant comprising the Non-Brokered Units, a “Non-Brokered Warrant“), with each whole Non-Brokered Warrant being exercisable to acquire one Common Share of the Company (a “Non-Brokered Warrant Share“). The Non-Brokered Units are subject to a 4 month hold period from today’s closing of the Concurrent Financing. The Company will make an application to list the Non-Brokered Warrants, Common Shares and Non-Brokered Warrant Shares underlying the Non-Brokered Units issued pursuant to the Concurrent Financing on the Exchange, subject to the Company fulfilling all of the listing requirements of the Exchange.
The Company plans to use the net proceeds from the Offering for working capital and general corporate purposes.
“Voyager has seen exceptional growth over the last few months as the adoption and acceptance of digital assets has accelerated,” said Steve Ehrlich, Co-Founder and CEO of Voyager. “This rapid growth has also been fueled by a substantial amount of money being dispersed into the market due to additional government funding. This funding has driven the increasing utilization of digital assets, including many of the decentralized protocols that Voyager’s agency brokerage model is able to deliver, giving us the ability to buy, hold and trade these assets in an efficient and secure manner for our customers. To support the increasing adoption of this asset class, we recently launched enhanced interest programs and added new coins to the Voyager Platform. Further, we intend to expand our platform internationally as part of our mission to ensure every trader and investor who wants to participate in the cryptocurrency market has a trusted broker working for them.”
