DOJA Cannabis Closes $17.25 Million Bought Deal Private Placement of Convertible Debenture Units
KELOWNA, BC, Dec. 28, 2017 /CNW/ – DOJA Cannabis Company Limited (“DOJA” or the “Company”) (CSE:DOJA) is pleased to announce the closing of its previously announced bought deal private placement of convertible debenture units (the “Convertible Debenture Units”) for gross proceeds of $17,250,000 (the “Offering”).
Pursuant to the Offering, DOJA issued a total of 17,250 Convertible Debenture Units, which included the exercise in full of the underwriters’ over-allotment option. Each Convertible Debenture Unit is comprised of $1,000 principal amount of 8.0% senior unsecured convertible debentures (the “Convertible Debentures”) and 403 common share purchase warrants (the “Warrants”) of the Company. The Convertible Debentures are convertible at the option of the holder into common shares of the Company (the “Common Shares”) at any time prior to the close of business on December 28, 2020 at a conversion price of $1.24 per share (the “Conversion Price”). Beginning on April 29, 2018, the Company may force the conversion of all the then Convertible Debentures at the Conversion Price on 30 days’ notice should the daily volume weighted average trading price of the Common Shares be greater than $1.86 for any 10 consecutive trading days. Each Warrant entitles the holder to acquire one Common Shares at an exercise price of $1.86 for a period of three years from the date of issuance.
The Offering was led by Canaccord Genuity Corp. on behalf of a syndicate of underwriters that included Mackie Research Capital Corporation and Haywood Securities Inc. (collectively, the “Underwriters”). In consideration for their services, the Underwriters received a cash commission equal to 6% of the gross proceeds of the Offering and non-transferable compensation warrants equal to 6% of the gross proceeds of the Offering divided by the Conversion Price.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering for capital projects and for general corporate purposes.
All securities issued in connection with the Offering are subject to a four month hold period expiring April 29, 2018.
