VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 29, 2022 -- HAVN Life Sciences Inc. (CSE: HAVN) (OTC: HAVLF) (FSE: 5NP) (the "Company” or "HAVN Life") a biotechnology company pursuing standardized extraction of psychoactive compounds and the development of natural health products, is pleased to announce that it will complete a consolidation (“Consolidation”) of its issued and outstanding common shares on the basis of one (1) post-consolidation common share for every thirty (30) pre-Consolidation common shares. No fractional shares will be issued as a result of the Consolidation. Fractional interests of 0.5 or greater will be rounded up to the nearest whole number of Common Shares and fractional interests of less than 0.5 will be rounded down to the nearest whole number of Common Shares. As a result of the Consolidation, the outstanding common shares of the Company will be reduced to 5,109,665.
The common shares will begin trading on a consolidated basis and with a new CUSIP number on August 3, 2022.
The Company’s name and trading symbol will not change.
Letter of transmittals have been mailed to registered shareholders and registered shareholders will be required to deposit their share certificate(s), together with the duly completed letter of transmittal, with Odyssey Trust Company, the Company's registrar and transfer agent. Non-registered shareholders holding common shares through an intermediary (a securities broker, dealer, bank or financial institution) should be aware that the intermediary may have different procedures for processing the Consolidation than those that will be put in place by the Company for registered Shareholders. If Shareholders hold their common shares through intermediaries and have questions in this regard, they are encouraged to contact their intermediaries.
Outstanding stock options and share purchase warrants will also be adjusted by the Consolidation ratio and the respective exercise prices of outstanding options and share purchase warrants will be adjusted accordingly.
The decision to effect the Consolidation was taken by the Board of Directors of the Company after carefully considering a number of factors, including the significant decline in the Company’s share price over the past several months, the significant decline in the market values of many other companies operating in the psychedelic sector, and the related challenges companies in the sector are facing in completing financings, particularly equity financings. The Company believes that effecting the Consolidation will be beneficial to the Company in that it is expected to, among other things, provide the Company with greater flexibility in attracting potential financing.
