The high level of interest in our offering truly speaks to our differentiated market strategy and proven ability to execute and scale our operations to become a market leader in the U.S. cannabis industry.
Each Warrant entitles its holder to acquire one common share in the capital of the Company at an exercise price of CDN$0.44 any time up to May 1, 2023, subject to adjustments in certain customary events, provided that if, at any time prior to the expiry date of the Warrants, the trading price of the Common Shares on the CSE exceeds CDN$0.88 for 20 consecutive trading days, the Company may within 10 business days of the occurrence of such event deliver a notice to the holders of such Warrants accelerating the expiry date of the Warrants to the date that is 90 days following the date of such notice. The Warrants are transferrable subject to written consent provided by the Company. The Warrants will provide for customary anti-dilution adjustments to protect their economic value, including corporate actions of the Company such as share splits or consolidations, reclassifications, non-cash distributions, and business combination transactions.
The Units have been issued on a private placement basis pursuant to applicable exemptions from prospectus requirements under applicable securities laws. 3,699,458 Units have been registered in the names of Canadian investors and the corresponding Common Shares, Warrants and Warrant Shares are subject to resale restrictions under Canadian securities laws until August 2, 2020.
Neither the Units (or the Common Shares or the Warrants forming part of the Units) have been or will be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “U.S. Securities Act”), or any state securities laws, and such securities may therefore not be offered or sold in the United States or to or for the account or benefit of a person in the United States or a U.S. Person (as defined in Regulation S of the U.S. Securities Act) absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the U.S. Securities Act and applicable U.S. state securities laws.
