January 12, 2023 (Source) – Sixth Wave Innovations Inc. (CSE: SIXW) (OTCQB: SIXWF) (FSE: AHUH) (“Sixth Wave” or the “Company”), a nanotechnology company with patented technologies that focus on extraction and detection of target substances at the molecular level,todayannounced that it is proposing to complete a private placement on a non-brokered basis (the “Private Placement“). The Company intends to raise up to approximately $2 million in aggregate gross proceeds by issuing up to 2,000 unsecured convertible debentures (the “Convertible Debentures“) at a price and principal amount of $1,000 per Convertible Debenture.
Interest on the Convertible Debentures can be paid in cash or units of the Company (“Units“), at the Company’s election, at a rate of 15% per annum, payable at the end of the term of the Convertible Debentures or upon conversion thereof, whichever one if first. The Convertible Debentures have a one-year plus one day term (the “Term“).
The Company has the right, at any time during the Term, to repay in full the principal amount and any accrued and unpaid interest plus remaining interest to maturity on the Convertible Debentures, provided that the Company gives 10 days’ notice prior to doing so.
At any time during the Term, a holder of Convertible Debentures may elect to convert the outstanding net principal amount and any accrued and unpaid interest plus the remaining interest to maturity, or any portion thereof, into Units at a conversion price of $0.05 per Unit (the “Conversion Price“). Each Unit shall consist of one common share in the capital of the Company (a “Common Share“) and one Common Share purchase warrant (“Warrant“), with each Warrant entitling its holder to acquire a Common Share at an exercise price of $0.075. The Warrants shall expire two years form the date of issue.
The outstanding principal amount of each Convertible Debenture (and any accrued and unpaid interest plus the remaining interest to maturity in respect of the Convertible Debentures) may be converted into Units at the Conversion Price at the election of the Company if the Common Shares trade at a closing price of $0.08 or more on the Canadian Securities Exchange (the “CSE“) for 10 consecutive trading days, provided that the Company gives 10 days’ prior notice of such conversion.
In connection with the Private Placement, the Company will pay a one-time bonus equal to 15% of the principal amount of the Convertible Debentures, with such bonus to be paid in Common Shares at the Conversion Price upon closing, subject to the approval of the CSE.
As at the date hereof, the Company has accepted subscription agreements for the Private Placement in aggregate gross proceeds of approximately $260,000.
The Company currently intends to use a portion of the net proceeds from the Private Placement to complete transition of the AffinityTM cannabinoid and botanicals purification license to Advanced Extraction System Inc. as per its existing licensing agreement and focus the Company on expansion of its IXOS mining technology into additional critical minerals. This includes the alternative green lixiviant and purification of lithium, nickel and cobalt, and support of ongoing precious metals mining. The Company has matured several pathogen (virus/bacteria) detection pathways and a portion of the net proceeds from the Private Placement are expected to support ongoing research for matching funds received from a government program and for monetizing this technology through strategic partners, spinouts or other means. A portion will also be used to support general corporate overhead.
In connection with the Private Placement, the Company may pay finders’ fees in the form of cash commissions and/or finder’s warrants, as determined by the Company.
The closing of the Private Placement is subject to the approval of the CSE. All securities that are issued pursuant to the Private Placement will be subject to, among other things, a hold period of four months and one day in accordance with applicable Canadian securities laws.
