LONDON, Ontario, Feb. 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — INDIVA Limited (TSX-V:NDVA) (“Indiva” or the “Company”), a federally-licensed producer of medical cannabis, is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced “bought deal” short form prospectus offering of units (“Units”) of the Company (the “Offering”), which included the exercise of the over-allotment option granted to the Underwriters (defined below) in full. In connection with closing of the Offering, 14,238,150 Units were sold at a price of $1.05 per Unit (the “Issue Price”) for aggregate gross proceeds of $14,950,057.50. The Offering was completed by a syndicate of underwriters including Eight Capital, as sole bookrunner and lead underwriter, and PI Financial Corp. (the “Underwriters”).
Each Unit is comprised of one common share of the Company (a “Common Share”) and one Common Share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”). Each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share at an exercise price of $1.30 until February 13, 2020. If the volume weighted average price of the Common Shares on the TSX Venture Exchange is equal to or greater than $2.10 for any 10 consecutive trading days, the Company may, upon providing written notice to the holders of Warrants within 10 days of the occurrence of such event, accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants to the date that is 30 days following the date of such written notice.
As consideration for their services, the Underwriters received a cash commission equal to 7% of the gross proceeds of the Offering. As additional consideration, the Company issued a total of 996,670 compensation options to the Underwriters. Each compensation option is exercisable into one Unit at the Issue Price until February 13, 2020.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering for capital expenditures, working capital and general corporate purposes, as more particularly described in the Company’s short form prospectus dated February 7, 2018.
The Units were offered and sold by way of a short form prospectus filed in each of the provinces of Canada, excluding Quebec.
