(TSX-V:EFF) (the “Company” or “1844”) is pleased to announce, further to its news release of December 14, 2021, that it has closed its non-brokered private placement (the “Private Placement”) of 2,260,000 units (the “Units”) at a price of $0.065 per Unit for gross proceeds of $146,900.
Each Unit is comprised of one common share in the capital of the Company (each, a “Share”) and one-half of one non-transferable share purchase warrant (each, a “Warrant”). Each whole Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one additional Share in the capital of the Company (each, a “Warrant Share”) for a period of 18 months from the closing date at an exercise price of $0.075 per Warrant Share.
Certain insiders of the Company participated in the offering and subscribed for 1,200,000 Units in the aggregate, which constitute “related party transactions” within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”). The Company’s President has subscribed for 1,000,000 Units, financing his subscription with an arranged sale through the facilities of the TSX Venture Exchange (“TSX-V”) (Gypsy Swap). Such participation is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as neither the fair market value of the Units acquired by the insider, nor the consideration for the Units paid by such insider, exceed 25 per cent of the Company’s market capitalization.
The Company intends to use the proceeds from the Private Placement for administrative and other general working capital.
The Private Placement was conducted under available exemptions from the prospectus requirements of applicable securities legislation and is subject to all necessary regulatory approvals, including acceptance from the TSX-V. All securities issued pursuant to the Private Placement, and the shares that may be issuable on exercise of the Warrants, are subject to a statutory hold period expiring on May 1, 2022.
None of the securities issued in the Private Placement have been, or will be, registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “1933 Act”), and none of them may be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the 1933 Act. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of the securities in any state where such offer, solicitation, or sale would be unlawful.
