(“Auxly” or the “Company”) (TSX: XLY) (OTCQX: CBWTF) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement pursuant to which ATB Capital Markets Inc. (“ATB”), as sole bookrunner, and Cantor Fitzgerald Canada Corporation, acting as co-lead underwriters of the Offering, together with a syndicate of underwriters (collectively, the “Underwriters”), will purchase 47,620,000 Units of the Company (the “Units”), on a bought-deal basis at a price per Unit of $0.315 (the “Issue Price”) for gross proceeds of $15,000,300 (the “Offering”).

Each Unit shall be comprised of one common share of the Company (each a “Common Share”) and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant of the Company (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”).

The Company has granted the Underwriters an option (the “Underwriters’ Option”) to increase the size of the Offering by up to an aggregate number of Units equal to 15% of the total number of Units issued under the Offering, such Underwriters’ Option being exercisable at any time and from time to time up to 30 days following the closing of the Offering.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds to continue to pursue strategic growth initiatives, including continued development, commercialization and expansion of its product portfolio, and for general corporate purposes.
The closing of the Offering is expected to occur on or about the week of June 14, 2021 (the “Closing”), or such later or earlier date as the Underwriters and the Company may agree upon, and is subject to the Company receiving all necessary regulatory approvals, including the approval of the necessary securities regulatory authorities.
The Units will be offered by way of a prospectus supplement (the “Prospectus Supplement”) to the Company’s short form base shelf prospectus dated March 18, 2021 (the “Base Shelf Prospectus”), which will be filed in those provinces of Canada as the Company and the Underwriters may designate (excluding Quebec) pursuant to National Instrument 44-101 – Short Form Prospectus Distributions and National Instrument 44-102 – Shelf Distributions.
