Subscription Receipt Financing of Graphene Manufacturing Group Pty Ltd.
In connection with the Transaction, GMG completed a non-brokered private placement financing of 3,077,000 subscription receipts (each, a “Subscription Receipt“) at a price of $0.65 per Subscription Receipt for gross proceeds of $2,000,050 (the “Offering“).
As previously disclosed, GMG will effect a share split (the “Split“) on the basis of twenty two (22) post-Split ordinary shares in the capital of GMG for every one (1) pre-Split ordinary share held, in connection with the Transaction. The Subscription Receipts will automatically convert into units of GMG (the “Units“) immediately prior to the listing of GMG’s post-Split ordinary shares (the “GMG Shares“) on the Exchange in connection with the Transaction. Each Unit will consist of one (1) GMG Share and one-half (1/2) of one ordinary share purchase warrant in the capital of GMG (each, a “GMG Warrant“), with each whole GMG Warrant exercisable into one (1) GMG Share at a price of C$1.00 for a period of eighteen (18) months from the Release Date (as defined in the Subscription Receipts certificates), which Release Date, for greater certainty, shall be no later than December 31, 2021.
All proceeds of the Offering are to be held by the Subscription Receipt agent in trust and will be released to GMG concurrently upon the conversion of the Subscription Receipts into Units (the “Subscription Receipt Conversion“). In the event that the Transaction is completed, GMG intends to use the proceeds of the Offering for general working capital purposes. In the event that the Transaction is not completed and the GMG Shares are not listed on the Exchange, the proceeds of the Offering will be returned to the subscribers.
The Subscription Receipts and all underlying securities to be issued pursuant to the Offering will be subject to a four-month hold period under applicable Canadian securities laws. Completion of the Transaction and the listing of the GMG shares on the Exchange remains subject to a number of conditions, including but not limited to, the filing of disclosure documents and regulatory approval. There can be no assurance that the Transaction will be completed as proposed or at all.
Investors are cautioned that, except as disclosed in disclosure documents to be prepared in connection with the Transaction, any information released or received with respect to the Transaction may not be accurate or complete and should not be relied upon. Trading in the securities of a capital pool company should be considered highly speculative.
Under the Offering, GMG will pay finder’s fees to in the aggregate amount of $109,755.59 in cash, representing 6% of the proceeds from investors introduced by the applicable finder, and an aggregate of 161,430 share purchase warrants in the capital of GMG (the “Finder Warrants“), representing 6% of the Subscription Receipts subscribed for by investors introduced by the applicable finder (collectively, the “Finder’s Fees“). Each Finder Warrant will be exercisable for one GMG Share at an exercise price of C$0.65 for a period of 18 months from the Release Date. The Finder’s Fees will be paid at the time of the Subscription Receipt Conversion.
