NEW YORK and TORONTO, July 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ – iAnthus Capital Holdings, Inc. (“iAnthus” or the “Company”), (CSE: IAN, OTCQB: ITHUF), which owns, operates, and partners with licensed cannabis operations throughout the United States, is pleased to announce that the Company has elected to exercise its right under the indenture dated February 28, 2017, as supplemented by the first supplemental indenture dated August 16, 2017 (together, the “Indenture”), governing the Company’s 8.0% unsecured convertible debentures due February 28, 2019 (the “Debentures”) to convert (the “Conversion”) all of the principal amount outstanding of the Debentures and unpaid accrued interest thereon up to July 13, 2018 into common shares of the Company (the “Common Shares”). Pursuant to the terms of the Indenture, the Company may force the conversion of the Debentures at the conversion price of C$3.10 per Common Share when the volume weighted average (“VWAP”) trading price of the Common shares on the Canadian Securities Exchange (the “Exchange”) for 10 consecutive trading days equals or exceeds C$4.50.
The Common Shares have closed at a price higher than C$4.50 for every trading day since May 7, 2018. As of the close of market on July 13, 2018, the VWAP of the Common Shares on the Exchange for the previous 10 consecutive trading days equals C$6.39. The Conversion is scheduled to be effective August 16, 2018.
Pursuant to the terms of the Indenture, the directors of the Company have determined that on the Conversion, holders of Debentures will receive, for each C$1,000 amount of Debentures and outstanding interest thereon, approximately 322 Common Shares. Therefore, on August 16, 2018, the estimated remaining total of C$2,671,487 of Debentures and interest thereon outstanding will be converted into approximately 861,770 Common Shares. The Company has provided the holders of the Debentures 30 days advance written notice of its intent to exercise the Conversion.
