THIS NEWS RELEASE IS INTENDED FOR DISTRIBUTION IN CANADA ONLY AND IS NOT INTENDED FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES.
Toronto, ON, November 26, 2019 ‐ The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. (the “Company” or “TGOD”) (TSX:TGOD) (US:TGODF), a leading producer of premium certified organic cannabis, is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with a syndicate of underwriters led by Canaccord Genuity Corp. (the "Underwriters") pursuant to which the Underwriters have agreed to purchase, on a bought deal basis pursuant to the filing of a short form prospectus, an aggregate of 29,334,000 units (the "Units") at a price of $0.75 per Unit (the "Offering Price") for aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of approximately C$22.0 million (the "Offering").
Each Unit shall consist of one common share (each a “Common Share”) and one-half of one common share purchase warrant of the Company (each whole such warrant, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant shall be exercisable to acquire one common share of the Company for a period of 36 months from closing of the transaction at an exercise price of C$1.00 per Warrant.
The Company has granted the Underwriter an option (the “Over-Allotment Option”) to purchase up to an additional 4,400,100 Units at a price of C$0.75 per Unit, exercisable at any time, for a period of 30 days after and including the Closing Date, which, if exercised, would result in additional proceeds of up to approximately $3.3 million. The Over-Allotment Option is exercisable to acquire Units, Common Shares and/or Warrants (or any combination thereof) at the discretion of the Underwriters.
The Units will be offered by way of a short form prospectus to be filed in all provinces of Canada except Quebec. The Offering is expected to close on December 17, 2019 and is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary regulatory and stock exchange approvals, including the approval of the TSX and the applicable securities regulatory authorities.
The Company will use best efforts to obtain the necessary approvals to list the Common Shares and the Common Shares issuable upon exercise of the Warrants on the Toronto Stock Exchange (“TSX”).
The Offering provides the Company with more capital advanced on closing and is less dilutive than the previously announced convertible note term sheet, which was structured with a series of conditional tranches and is no longer being pursued by the Company. It continues towards finalizing the mortgage loan arrangement and the sale and leaseback of the energy centre at its Ancaster facility that were also previously announced.
TGOD intends to use the proceeds of the Offering to complete construction of its processing facility at Ancaster and for general corporate purposes.
