/NOT FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES OR FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. WIRE SERVICES/
TORONTO , March 11, 2021 /CNW/ – 48North Cannabis Corp. (“48North” or the “Company”) (TSXV: NRTH) is pleased to announce that it has filed a preliminary short form prospectus with the securities commissions in each of the provinces of Canada , other than Quebec (the “Canadian Jurisdictions”), in connection with an overnight marketed public offering of units (each, a “Unit”) of the Company (the “Offering”) at a price of $0.21 per Unit (the “Issue Price”). The number of Units to be sold pursuant to the Offering will be determined in the context of the market prior to the filing of the final short form prospectus in respect of the Offering.
Each Unit will consist of one common share of the Company (each, a “Common Share”) and one common share purchase warrant (each, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant will be exercisable for one Common Share at a price of $0.26 per Common Share any time for a period of 24 months following the closing of the Offering. The Company intends to apply to the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV”) to list the Warrants on the TSXV, subject to satisfying all conditions to listing.
The Offering will be conducted on a “best efforts” basis by a syndicate of agents co-led by Cantor Fitzgerald Canada Corporation and Cormark Securities Inc. (collectively, the “Agents”). The Company has granted the Agents an option, exercisable in whole or in part, at the sole discretion of the Agents, at any time up to 30 days following the closing of the Offering, to purchase from the Company up to an additional 15% of the Units sold under the Offering, on the same terms and conditions of the Offering, to cover over-allotments, if any, and for market stabilization purposes (the “Over-Allotment Option”). The Over-Allotment Option may be exercised by the Agents to purchase additional Units, Common Shares, Warrants or any combination thereof.
The Company will pay the Agents a cash commission equal to 7% of the gross proceeds of the Offering and broker warrants to purchase up to 6% of the number of Units sold in the Offering (each, a “Broker Warrant”). Each Broker Warrant shall entitle the holder thereof to purchase one Unit at the Issue Price at any time on or before the date on which the Warrants issued under the Offering are set to expire.
The Offering will be completed by way of a short form prospectus to be filed in the Canadian Jurisdictions and in certain jurisdictions outside Canada on a private placement basis, as agreed to by the Company and the Agents, provided that no prospectus filing or comparable obligation arises and the Company does not thereafter become subject to continuous disclosure obligations in any such jurisdiction.
The Offering is expected to close on or about March 26, 2021 , or such other date as the Company and the Agents may agree. Closing of the Offering is subject to customary closing conditions, including, but not limited to, the execution of an agency agreement and the receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals, including any required approvals of the TSXV.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering for working capital and general corporate purposes.
