Toronto, ON, December 2, 2020 ‐ The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. ("TGOD" or the "Company") (TSX: TGOD) today announced that it has established an at-the-market equity program (the "ATM Program") that allows the Company to issue and sell up to $15,000,000 of common shares in the capital of the Company (the "Common Shares") from treasury to the public, from time to time, at the Company's discretion. All Common Shares sold under the ATM Program will be sold through the Toronto Stock Exchange or another marketplace (as defined in National Instrument 21-101 - Marketplace Operation) upon which the Common Shares are listed, quoted or otherwise traded, at the prevailing market price at the time of sale.
The ATM Program is designed to provide the Company with additional financing flexibility should it be required in the future. The volume and timing of distributions under the ATM Program, if any, will be determined in the Company's sole discretion. Distributions of the Common Shares under the ATM Program will be made pursuant to the terms of an equity distribution agreement (the "Distribution Agreement") dated December 2, 2020 entered into between the Company and Canaccord Genuity Corp. (the "Agent").
The ATM Program will be effective until the earlier of December 31, 2021 and the issuance and sale of all of the Common Shares issuable pursuant to the ATM Program, unless terminated prior to such date by the Company or the Agent in accordance with the terms of the Distribution Agreement. The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the ATM Program, if any, for general corporate purposes and working capital needs, including the repayment of indebtedness. As Common Shares distributed under the ATM Program will be issued and sold at the prevailing market price at the time of the sale, prices may vary among purchasers during the period of the ATM Program.
The offering of Common Shares under the ATM Program is qualified by a prospectus supplement dated December 2, 2020 (the "Prospectus Supplement") to the Company's short form base shelf prospectus dated November 27, 2020 (the "Shelf Prospectus"), which were each filed with the applicable securities regulatory authorities in each of the provinces and territories of Canada. The Prospectus Supplement and the Shelf Prospectus are available on the System for Electronic Document Analysis and Retrieval ("SEDAR") website at www.sedar.com.
