Toronto, Ontario, September 20, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – North Bud Farms Inc. (CSE: NBUD) (the “Corporation“), is pleased to announce the closing of a non-brokered private placement offering (the “Private Placement“) consisting of 3,778,000 units (“Units“), at a price of $0.25 per Unit, for gross proceeds of $944,500. Each Unit is comprised of one Common Share and one-half (1/2) of a Common Share purchase warrant, with each whole warrant entitling the holder hereof to acquire one additional Common Share at a price of $0.40 per Common Share until September 20, 2020. No fees or commissions were paid in connection with the Private Placement. The terms of the Private Placement are the same as the Corporation’s previously-completed private placement (July 25, 2018, as disclosed in the Corporation’s prospectus dated August 21, 2018).
Mr. Andre Audet, the Chairman of the Corporation, participated in the Private Placement by subscribing for 200,000 Units (the “Insider’s Participation“). The Insider’s Participation is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements provided under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101“) in accordance with sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(a) of MI 61-101. The exemption is based on the fact that neither the fair market value of the Insider’s Participation nor the consideration paid by such insider exceeds 25% of the Corporation’s market capitalization. The Corporation did not file a material change report at least 21 days prior to the completion of the Private Placement since the Insider’s Participation was not determined at that moment.
The Corporation intends to use the proceeds of the Private Placement to continue to advance the license application of GrowPros MMP Inc. under the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR) and for general working capital purposes.
The securities acquired by the subscribers are subject to a hold period of four months plus one day from the closing date, ending on January 21, 2019, except as permitted by applicable securities legislation.
