Vancouver, B.C. – Speakeasy Cannabis Club Ltd. (CSE: EASY) (Frankfurt: 39H) (the “Company” or “SpeakEasy”) a holder of a federal licence to cultivate, process and sell cannabis under the Cannabis Act is pleased to announce a non-brokered private placement of up to 8,000,000 units of the Company (the “Units”) at a price of $0.50 per Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of up to $4,000,000 (the “Offering”). It is expected that this financing will be fully-subscribed.
Each Unit will consist of one common share in the capital of the Company (a “Common Share“) and one Common Share purchase warrant (a “Warrant“). Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to acquire an additional Common Share at a price of $0.70 for a period of 36 months from the closing of the Offering. The Units will be made available by way of prospectus exemptions in Canada, and in such other jurisdictions as the Company may determine and where the Units can be issued on a private placement basis, exempt from any prospectus, registration or other similar requirements.
In connection with the Offering, eligible finders will be entitled to receive a cash fee equal to up to 6% of the number of Units sold under the Offering as well as finder warrants (the “Finder Warrants”) entitling the holder to acquire such number of Common Shares equal to 6% of the Units sold under the Offering at an exercise price of $0.70 per Common Share for a period of 36 months following the date of issuance.
It is anticipated that the proceeds of the Offering will be used for working capital, general corporate purposes and the completion of our additional indoor grow facilities.
Founder Marc Geen states, “completing our indoor production facilities is now possible with this latest investment from our incredible shareholders, thank you to all who were able to participate. With our indoor flower now in BC and Alberta dispensaries, being well received and completely sold out, the demand for our product far outstrips our current ability to produce. We have always stuck to the concept that producing a high-quality product at a reasonable price will create space on the shelves. Now, with the strong demand for our product, and the sale of all our available indoor flower, the concept provesto be true. We will be using these funds to increase our indoor production from roughly 200 kilograms per month to approximately 1,500 kilograms per month once the expansion is completed in the second quarter of this year. Further, we look forward to reporting the proceeds from these sales in our upcoming quarterly reports. We will also be increasing our pre-roll and packaging lines for products created from our flower produced both indoor and outdoor. Transitioning into the sales and marketing of our product has been exciting and successful, I am excited to be able to update everyone soon about the results of our efforts.”
Closing of the Offering is expected to occur on or about February 16, 2021 and is subject to regulatory approval, including that of the Canadian Securities Exchange.
All securities issued in connection with the Offering will be subject to a statutory hold period of four months plus a day from the date of issuance in accordance with applicable securities legislation.
