Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – September 4, 2020) – Nurcapital Corporation Ltd. (TSXV: NCL.H) (“Nurcapital” or the “Company“), a capital pool company, is pleased to announce that it has entered into a letter of intent dated September 3, 2020 (the “LOI“) with Green Sky Labs Inc. (“GSL“), a private company existing under the laws of the Province of Alberta. The LOI outlines the general terms and conditions pursuant to which Nurcapital and GSL will effect a business combination and reverse takeover transaction that will result in Nurcapital acquiring all of the issued and outstanding securities of GSL in exchange for equity in Nurcapital (the “Proposed Transaction“). The Proposed Transaction will constitute Nurcapital’s “Qualifying Transaction” under the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “Exchange“).
In light of the Proposed Transaction, the Company’s previously announced Qualifying Transaction with Globex Mining Enterprises Inc. will not be proceeding. No deposits, loans or cash advances were made by the Company to Globex Mining Enterprises Inc.
Terms of the Proposed Transaction
Pursuant to the terms of the LOI, Nurcapital and GSL will negotiate and enter into a definitive agreement incorporating the principal terms of the LOI.
Prior to the completion of the Proposed Transaction, Nurcapital will consolidate all of its issued and outstanding common shares (the “Common Shares“) on the basis of one post-consolidation Common Share for approximately 3.65 pre-consolidation Common Shares (the “Consolidation Ratio“) and change its name to “Green Sky Labs Inc.”. Pursuant to the Proposed Transaction, the current shareholders of GSL will receive approximately 100,460,538 post-consolidation Common Shares. As set out further below, participants in a concurrent brokered financing of GSL (the “Concurrent Offering“) will, on closing of the Proposed Transaction, become securityholders of the resulting issuer (the “Resulting Issuer“).
The final structure for the Proposed Transaction is subject to satisfactory tax, corporate and securities law advice on the part of both Nurcapital and GSL. Completion of the Proposed Transaction is also subject to a number of other conditions, including completion of the Concurrent Offering, receipt of applicable regulatory approvals, including the approval of the Exchange for the Proposed Transaction, completion of satisfactory due diligence and the execution of a definitive agreement and related transaction documents.
Nurcapital currently has 3,219,500 common shares and 220,850 incentive stock options issued and outstanding. Under the terms of the LOI, the issued and outstanding shares of Nurcapital will be consolidated in accordance with the Consolidation Ratio, which will result in approximately 881,481 Common Shares outstanding on a fully-diluted basis.
GSL currently has 100,460,538 common shares issued and outstanding. Each GSL common share will be exchanged for one post-consolidation Common Share, such that, following the completion of the Proposed Transaction, the shareholders of GSL are expected to hold, in the aggregate, 100,460,538 post-consolidation Common Shares of the Resulting Issuer.
Assuming completion of the Proposed Transaction, but before giving effect to the Concurrent Offering, the Resulting Issuer is expected to have approximately 101,342,019 Common Shares outstanding.
Proposed Private Placement
It is a condition of the LOI that GSL will complete the Concurrent Offering, which is expected to comprise a brokered private placement of securities of GSL to raise gross proceeds of a minimum of C$5 million. Further details of the Concurrent Offering will follow at a later date.
Trading in the Common Shares of Nurcapital is suspended, and will remain suspended, until the completion of the Proposed Transaction.
