Not For Distribution in The United States or Over U.S. Newswire Services
LONDON, Ontario – September 22, 2021: Indiva Limited (the “Company” or “Indiva”) (TSXV:NDVA) (OTCQX:NDVAF), the leading Canadian producer of cannabis edibles and other cannabis products, is pleased to announce that it is introducing a warrant exercise incentive program (the “Incentive Program“) designed to encourage the early exercise of up to 17,184,996 outstanding common share purchase warrants (the “Warrants“).
The Warrants eligible for the Incentive Program, as set out in the following table, were issued in connection with a private placement offering of units, with each unit consisting of one common share in the capital of the Company (“Common Shares“) and one Warrant (the “Offering“). The Offering was completed in two tranches occurring on June 25, 2020 and August 10, 2020:
|Issue Date||Expiry Date||Warrants Outstanding||Exercise Price ($)|
|June 25, 2020||June 25, 2023||3,294,333||0.40|
|August 10, 2020||August 10, 2023||13,890,663||0.40|
Under the terms of the Incentive Program, for each Warrant that is exercised on or before October 12, 2021 (the “Early Exercise Period“), the holder thereof will receive, at no additional cost, one-half of one newly issued common share purchase warrant (each an “Incentive Warrant“), with each whole Incentive Warrant exercisable into one common share for a period of five (5) years from the issue date at an exercise price of $0.45.
The gross proceeds to the Company, if all of the Warrants are exercised, would be $6,873,998.40. There is no assurance that all or any of the Warrants will be exercised.
The terms and conditions of the Incentive Program, including the method of exercising the Warrants, will be set forth in a letter to be delivered shortly to the registered holders of the Warrants.
Any Warrants that are not exercised prior to the expiry of the Early Exercise Period will remain outstanding in accordance with their original terms, and in particular, will no longer be eligible for the issuance of Incentive Warrants.
A portion of the Warrants, eligible for participation in the Incentive Program, are held by insiders of the Company. Participation by any such insiders in the Incentive Program may constitute a related party transaction pursuant to Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Special Transactions (“MI 61-101“). The Company is exempt from the formal valuation requirement pursuant to subsections 5.5(a) and (b) of MI 61-101, and from the minority approval requirement pursuant to subsection 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101.
The Incentive Program is subject to the receipt of applicable regulatory approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
