Primary Energy Metals Raises $3.6 Million in Oversubscribed Private Placement
VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / November 5, 2019 / Primary Energy Metals Inc. (CSE:PRIM)(FSE:1WZ:GR)(OTC:PEMTF) (the “Company”) has completed its previously announced offering (the “Financing”) of subscription receipts (each, a “Receipt”) being conducted in connection with the Company’s proposed acquisition (the “Transaction”) of NNZ Consulting Corp. (“NNZ”).
NNZ is a privately-held company which, through its subsidiary Ihuana SAS (“Ihuana”), is licensed to cultivate non-psychoactive cannabis in Colombia for seed production, manufacturing of derivative products such as cannabidiol (“CBD”) and for industrial purposes. Ihuana is seeking to become a large-scale cultivator of naturally-grown non-psychoactive cannabis and a producer of CBD, with its primary operations centralized in the Bogota savannah in central Colombia.
The Financing was oversubscribed, and in connection with completion the Company issued 12,196,249 Receipts, at a price of $0.30 per Receipt for gross proceeds of $3,658,875. The proceeds from the Financing will be held in escrow pending completion of the Transaction. Upon completion of the Transaction, each Receipt will automatically be converted into one unit (each, a “Receipt Unit”) of the Company. Each Receipt Unit will consist of one common share of the Company, and one common share purchase warrant (each, a “Receipt Warrant”) entitling the holder to acquire an additional common share of the Company at a price of $0.50 for a period of twenty-four months from completion of the Transaction.
Upon completion of the Transaction, and conversion of the Receipts, the Company has agreed to pay finders’ fees of $96,835 and issue 322,786 Receipt Warrants, to certain parties who have assisted the Company in introducing subscribers to the Financing. All securities issued in connection with the Financing are subject to a four-month-and-one-day statutory hold period in accordance with applicable securities laws.
The Transaction constitutes a “Fundamental Change” for the Company under the polices of the Canadian Securities Exchange (the “Exchange”). Pending completion of filings with the Exchange, in connection with the Transaction, trading in the Company’s common shares is currently halted. It is anticipated that trading will remain halted until the Transaction has been completed. Following completion of the Transaction, it is anticipated that the Company will continue to be listed on the Exchange, then under the name “Mota Ventures Corp.”, and that its common shares will trade under the ticker symbol “MOTA”.
Completion of the Transaction remains subject to a number of conditions, including the approval of the shareholders of the Company, and the approval of the Exchange. The Transaction cannot be completed until these conditions are satisfied, and there can be no assurance that the Transaction will be completed in a timely fashion, or at all. Further information concerning the Transaction, including financial information for NNZ and Ihuana, will be available in the listing statement being prepared by the Company for filing with the Exchange. Once complete, a copy of the listing statement will be available for review under the Company’s profile on SEDAR ( www.sedar.com ).
