The Definitive Agreement contemplates Elephant Hill completing a consolidation of its common shares on a 4.2:1 basis (the “Consolidation“). Following the closing, Elephant Hill will continue on with the business of Luckbox (Elephant Hill after the Proposed Transaction being referred to herein as the “Resulting Issuer“). In connection with the Proposed Transaction, Elephant Hill intends to list as a Tier 2 Industrial/Technology Issuer on the Exchange.

The former shareholders or securityholders of Luckbox shall receive 46,062,952 Elephant Hill Shares (which assumes the conversion of the Convertible Note (defined below) and the exchange of the Subscription Receipts (defined below)) at a deemed price of $0.42 per share and there will be an aggregate of 9,462,340 options and warrants of Luckbox outstanding which will, pursuant to the Proposed Transaction, be exchanged for options and warrants to purchase Elephant Hill Shares.

It is expected that all Elephant Hill Shares (including Elephant Hill Shares issued upon exercise of Elephant Hill warrants) and Elephant Hill Share purchase warrants (collectively, the “Elephant Hill Securities“) issued pursuant to the Proposed Transaction, except those certain Elephant Hill Securities issued to U.S. persons, will be freely tradable under applicable Canadian securities legislation, but may be subject to Exchange imposed restrictions on resale.

None of the securities to be issued pursuant to the Proposed Transaction have been or will be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “U.S. Securities Act“), or any state securities laws, and any securities issued pursuant to the Proposed Transaction are anticipated to be issued in reliance upon available exemptions from such registration requirements pursuant to Section 4(a)(2) and/or Regulation D of the U.S. Securities Act and applicable exemptions under state securities laws. The Elephant Hill Securities issued to U.S. persons may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements under applicable U.S. securities laws.

The gross proceeds of the RTO Financing less 50% of the fees paid to the agents (the “Escrowed Funds“) were placed in escrow and will only be released from escrow to Luckbox upon satisfaction of escrow release conditions customary in a business combination transaction such as the Proposed Qualifying Transaction, including the following conditions: (i) the satisfaction or waiver of all conditions to the completion of the Proposed Qualifying Transaction (other than the release of the Escrowed Funds); (ii) conditional approval of the listing of the Resulting Issuer Shares on the Exchange; (iii) the receipt of all regulatory, shareholder and third-party approvals required in connection with the Proposed Qualifying Transaction; and (iv) the delivery of a release notice and direction to the escrow agent confirming that the escrow release conditions have been satisfied or waived on or before 5:00 pm (Calgary time) on December 31, 2020. In connection with the Merger and closing of the Proposed Transaction, each holder of a Subscription Receipt will receive without payment of additional consideration and without further action on the part of the holder, a unit (each, a “Unit“) of the Resulting Issuer. Each Unit will consist of one (1) common share (each a “Common Share“) of the Resulting Issuer and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant“), with each Unit priced at C$0.42 per Unit. Each Warrant will be exercisable into one (1) Common Share at a price of C$0.63 per Common Share for a period of 24 months from the closing of the Proposed Transaction, subject to an acceleration right (the “Warrant Acceleration Right“) if on any ten (10) consecutive trading days, beginning on the date that is four (4) months and one (1) day following the closing date of the Transaction, the closing price of the Resulting Issuer’s Common Shares on the Exchange is greater than C$0.84 per share. If the Resulting Issuer exercises the Warrant Acceleration Right, the new expiry date of the Warrants will be the 30th day following the notice of such exercise.

Gravitas Securities Inc. and Beacon Securities Ltd. (the “Agents“) acted as co-lead agents and co-bookrunners, on behalf of a syndicate of agents in connection with the RTO Offering.

In addition, Luckbox raised approximately $500,000 through the sale of a convertible note (the “Convertible Note“) that will be converted into Luckbox Shares and warrants to purchase Luckbox Shares prior to completion of the Transaction.

Elephant Hill intends to use the net proceeds of the RTO Financing and existing cash on hand for capital expenditures and working capital of the Resulting Issuer.

After giving effect to the Consolidation and following the completion of the Proposed Transaction it is anticipated that an aggregate of 47,729,618 Resulting Issuer Shares will be issued and outstanding as fully paid and non-assessable shares, 166,666 Resulting Issuer Shares will be reserved for issuance pursuant to the exercise of outstanding stock options of the Resulting Issuer, 9,462,340 Resulting Issuer Shares will be reserved for issuance pursuant to the exercise of share purchase warrants, broker warrants and compensation options for a period of 24 months from the completion of the Proposed Transaction, with exercise prices ranging from $0.42 to $0.63.
