Magical Brands Financing
In connection with the Transaction, Magical Brands intends to complete a concurrent brokered financing (the “Offering”) of subscription receipts (the “Subscription Receipts”) of Magical Brands, Inc. (“Finco”), a special purpose British Columbia company incorporated solely for the purpose of the Offering, at a price of $0.50 per Subscription Receipt (the “Issue Price”) for minimum gross proceeds of $5,000,000 (or $5,750,000 if the Agents’ Option (as defined below) is exercised). Each Subscription Receipt is exchangeable for one (1) unit of Finco (each, a “Finco Unit”). Each Finco Unit is expected to be comprised of one common share of Finco and one-half common share purchase warrant of Finco (each whole common share purchase warrant, a “Warrant”). Upon the satisfaction or waiver (to the extent such waiver is permitted) of certain conditions, other than the release of the Escrowed Proceeds (as defined below) (the “Escrow Release Conditions”), each Finco Unit underlying the Subscription Receipts will, immediately prior to the Transaction, automatically convert into and be exchanged for one (1) unit of G2G (each, a “G2G Unit”). Each G2G Unit shall consist of one Subordinate Voting Share and one-half of one share purchase warrant of G2G (each whole share purchase warrant a “G2G Warrant”). Each G2G Warrant shall entitle the holder thereof to acquire one additional Subordinate Voting Share at a price of $0.75 for a period of twenty-four (24) months following closing of the Offering. Expiry of the G2G Warrants will occur at the option of the Resulting Issuer upon 30 days’ notice to holders of G2G Warrants should the volume weighted average trading price of the Subordinate Voting Shares exceed $1.00 per Share for ten (10) consecutive trading days.
Canaccord Genuity Corp. is acting as lead agent in connection with the Offering (the “Lead Agent”), on behalf of a syndicate of agents, including Haywood Securities Inc. and Eight Capital (together with the Lead Agent, the “Agents”) to offer the Subscription Receipts for sale on a commercially reasonable efforts agency basis. Magical Brands has granted the Agents an option (the “Agents’ Option”), exercisable in whole or in part at any time prior to the closing of the Offering, to increase the size of the offering by up to $750,000. In connection with the Offering, Magical Brands has agreed to pay the Agents a cash fee (the “Agents’ Commission”) equal to 7.0% of the gross proceeds of the Subscription Receipts sold in the Offering (reduced to 3.5% in respect of sales to the president’s list) and to issue compensation warrants (the “Agents’ Warrants”) to the Agents equal to 7.0% of the number of Subscription Receipts sold in the Offering (reduced to 3.5% in respect of sales to the president’s list). Each Agents’ Warrant shall be exercisable for such number of Finco Units or G2G Units, as the case may be, at an exercise price equal to the Issue Price and having a term of twenty-four (24) months from the closing of the Offering. Upon closing of the Offering, the Company shall pay the Lead Agent a corporate finance fee equal to that number of Subscription Receipts which is equal to 3.0% of the aggregate number of Subscription Receipts issued pursuant to the Offering.
The proceeds from the Offering (less an amount equal to 50% of the Agents’ Commission and less all of the reasonable expenses of the Agents in connection with the Offering) (the “Escrowed Proceeds”) will be held in escrow until the satisfaction of the Escrow Release Conditions.
The funds to be available to the Resulting Issuer upon the closing of the Transaction are expected to be a minimum of $5,000,000 (or $5,750,000 if the Agents’ Option is exercised), less costs of the Transaction and the Offering. These funds are anticipated to be used, principally for corporate and general working capital purposes.
