VANCOUVER, Jan. 30, 2019 /CNW/ – C21 Investments Inc. (CSE: CXXI) today announced that it has closed the second and final tranche of its previously announced upsized brokered syndicated private placement of units (each, a “Unit”) (the “Offering”) for additional proceeds of $9,825,000 (all figures in Canadian dollars). Combined with the closing of the first tranche of 5,063 Units on December 31, 2018, total gross proceeds from the Offering are $14,888,000.
The Offering was led by Industrial Alliance Securities Inc. with Canaccord Genuity Corp. and Sprott Capital Partners, a division of Sprott Private Wealth LP, as syndicate members.
Investors continue to show confidence in the company and its strategy. With the closing of several acquisitions and others due shortly, we are providing investors with the opportunity to invest in a vertically integrated cannabis company that cultivates, processes, and distributes quality cannabis and hemp-derived consumer products in the United States.

Each Unit consists of one $1,000 principal amount 10% unsecured convertible debenture (a “Debenture”) and one-half of one non-transferable debenture warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase, for a period of 24 months from the date of issue, one additional $1,000 principal amount 10% unsecured convertible debenture (a “Warrant Debenture”) at an exercise price of $1,000 per Warrant Debenture. The Debentures are convertible to common shares of C21 Investments at a price of $0.80 per common share. The Warrant Debentures are convertible into common shares of C21 Investments at a price of $0.90 per common share. The Debentures and Warrant Debentures will mature two years from the date of issue of the Debentures. The Units, Debentures, Warrants, Warrant Debentures and the common shares issuable upon conversion of the Debentures and Warrant Debentures are subject to resale restrictions under applicable Canadian securities laws for a period of four months following the closing date.
Net proceeds from the Offering are intended to be used primarily to complete previously announced acquisitions in the United States, and to upgrade and expand the acquired businesses.
