LAS VEGAS, Oct. 19, 2020 /CNW/ – Planet 13 Holdings Inc. (“Planet 13” or the “Company”) (CSE: PLTH) (OTCQB: PLNHF) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with a syndicate of underwriters (the “Underwriters”) co-led by Canaccord Genuity Corp. (“Canaccord”) and Beacon Securities Limited and pursuant to which the Underwriters have agreed to purchase, on a bought deal basis, 4,700,000 units (the “Units”) in the capital of the Company at a price of C$4.30 per Unit (the “Offering Price”) for aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of C$20,210,000 (the “Offering”).
Each Unit shall consist of one common share (a “Common Share”) in the capital of the Company and one-half (1/2) of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”) of the Company. Each whole Warrant shall entitle the holder thereof to acquire one Common Share at an exercise price per Common Share of C$5.80 for a period of 24 months from the Closing Date (as defined below).
The closing of the Offering is expected to occur on or about November 5, 2020 (the “Closing Date”) and is subject to the completion of formal documentation and receipt of all regulatory approvals, including the approval of the Canadian Securities Exchange. The net proceeds from the Offering will be used for working capital and general corporate purposes.
The Company has granted the Underwriters an option (the “Over-Allotment Option”), exercisable, in whole or in part, by Canaccord, on behalf of the Underwriters, giving notice to the Company at any time and from time to time up to 30 days following the Closing Date, to purchase, or to find substituted purchasers for, up to an additional number of Units equal to 15% of the number of Units sold pursuant to the Offering at the Offering Price to cover over-allotments, if any, and for market stabilization purposes.
The Units to be issued under the Offering will be offered by way of a short form prospectus to be filed in all of the Provinces of Canada (except Quebec) and by private placement to eligible purchasers resident in jurisdictions other than Canada that are mutually agreed by the Company and Canaccord, provided that no prospectus filing or comparable obligation arises and the Company does not therefore become subject to continuous disclosure obligations in such jurisdiction.
The Units, Common Shares and Warrants being offered have not been, nor will they be, registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (“U.S. Securities Act”) and may not be offered or sold in the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, “U.S. persons” (as defined in Regulation S under the U.S. Securities Act) absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements.
