/NOT FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES OR THROUGH U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES/
DENVER, May 18, 2022 /CNW/ - Mydecine Innovations Group Inc. ("Mydecine" or the "Company") (NEO: MYCO) (OTC: MYCOF) (FSE: 0NFA) is pleased to announce that it has commenced an overnight marketed public offering (the "Offering") of units of the Company (the "Units") at a price of $1.15 per Unit (the "Issue Price"). The size of the Offering will be determined in the context of the market.
Each Unit will be comprised of one common share of the Company (a "Unit Share") and one common share purchase warrant (a "Unit Warrant"). Each Unit Warrant shall be exercisable to acquire one common share of the Company at a price of $1.40 per Unit Share. The Unit Warrants will expire sixty months from the date of issuance. The Offering will be conducted on a best efforts agency basis pursuant to the terms and conditions of an agency agreement to be entered into between the Company, Stifel Nicolaus Canada Inc. ("Stifel GMP"), Roth Canada, Inc. ("Roth" and together with Stifel GMP the "Co-Lead Agents"), and other members of the agency syndicate to be formed in connection with the Offering.
The Company will grant the Co-Lead Agents an option (the "Over-Allotment Option") to sell up to an additional 15% of the Units sold under the Offering, at the Issue Price. The Over-Allotment Option may be exercised in whole or in part as determined by Co-Lead Agents upon written notice to the Company at any time up to 30 days following the closing date of the Offering.
The Offering will be conducted pursuant to the Company's Canadian amended and restated base shelf prospectus dated January 28, 2022 (the "Base Shelf Prospectus"). A prospectus supplement (the "Prospectus Supplement") relating to the Offering will be filed in each of the provinces of Canada, except the Province of Quebec. Copies of the Prospectus Supplement and accompanying Base Shelf Prospectus will be available under the Company's profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering for working capital and general corporate purposes.
The Offering is expected to close on or about May 25, 2022, subject to customary closing conditions.
Closing of the Offering is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary approvals including the approval of the NEO Exchange.
Under section 10.10(1) of the NEO Exchange Listing Manual (the "NEO Manual"), the Company must obtain security holder approval of the Offering since the number of common shares of the Company ("Common Shares") being issued (on a fully diluted basis) is expected to constitute more than 25% of the issued and outstanding Common Shares and the Issue Price is at discount to the last closing trading price of the Common Shares, unless it relies on the exemption under section 10.10(2) of the NEO Manual. The Company will not seek security holder approval of the Offering pursuant to section 10.10(2) of the NEO Manual on the following basis: if the Company does not complete the Offering, it is in serious financial difficulty; the Company has entered into an engagement letter in respect of the Offering; no Related Persons (as defined in the NEO Manual) of the Company is participating in the Offering; and the independent directors have determined that the Offering is in the best interests of the Company, is reasonable in the circumstances and that it is not feasible to obtain security holder approval or complete a rights offering to existing security holders on the same terms.
This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of the securities in the United States or in any other jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful. The securities have not been registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements thereunder.
Neither the NEO Exchange nor its Market Regulator (as that term is defined in the policies of the NEO Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release. No securities regulatory authority has either approved or disapproved of the contents of this press release.
