VANCOUVER, British Columbia–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Sproutly Canada, Inc. (CSE: SPR) (OTCQB: SRUTF) (FSE: 38G) (“Sproutly» or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that, further to its news release dated March 15, 2021, it has closed the second and final tranche of its financing. Under the final tranche of the private placement, the Company issued 15,916,037 units of the Company (the “Units”) at a price of $0.05 per Unit for gross proceeds of approximately $795,802, with each Unit consisting of one common share and one non-transferable common share purchase warrant. Each warrant entitles the holder to acquire an additional common share at an exercise price of $0.07 for a period of two years from the date of issue.
All securities issued in connection with the private placement are subject to a four month and a day transfer restriction from the date of issuance. The placement was completed for the purposes of supporting the Company’s general working capital. The private placement is subject to the approval of the Canadian Securities Exchange.
In connection with the private placement, in consideration for their services, the Company paid finder’s fees in the amount of $22,500 through the issuance of 450,000 Units on the same terms as described above.
Under the private placement, Dr. Arup Sen, Chief Executive Officer and Director of the Company, purchased 3,000,000 Units through a company controlled by Dr. Sen. His participation is considered to be a «related party transaction» as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 («MI 61-101«). The transaction is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as neither the fair market value of the securities to be distributed in the private placement nor the consideration to be received for those securities, in so far as the private placement involves the insider, exceeds $2,500,000. The Company did not file a material change report more than 21 days before the expected closing of the private placement as the details of the private placement and the participation therein by related parties of the Company were not settled until shortly prior to closing and the Company wished to close on an expedited basis for sound business reasons.
