MONTREAL, July 21, 2021 /CNW Telbec/ – Carebook Technologies Inc. (“Carebook” or the “Company“) (TSXV: CRBK) (OTCPK: CRBKF) (XETR: PMM1), a leading Canadian digital health company offering innovative digital health and virtual care solutions for pharmacies, employers and insurers, today announced that it is amending the terms of the brokered private placement offering previously announced by the Company on June 29, 2021 being led by iA Private Wealth Inc., on behalf of a syndicate that includes Canaccord Genuity (collectively, the “Agents“), on a “best efforts” basis.
The offering will now consist of the sale of up to 14,000,000 units of Carebook (the “Units“) at a price of $1.00 per Unit (the “Offering Price“) for gross proceeds of up to $14,000,000 (the “Offering“). Each Unit shall be comprised of one common share of Carebook (each, a “Common Share“) and one-half of one common share purchase warrant, each whole warrant entitling the holder thereof to acquire a Common Share at $1.47 for a period of 24 months from issuance. In addition, the Company will grant the Agents an option (the “Over-Allotment Option“) to arrange for the purchase of additional Units in an amount equal to 15% of the Units sold pursuant to the Offering at a price equal to the Offering Price. The Over-Allotment Option shall be exercisable, in whole or in part, at any time for a period ending 48 hours prior to the Closing Date (as defined below).
The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering to complete its previously announced acquisition (the “Acquisition“) of all of the issued and outstanding securities of an industry leading company providing a technology platform that powers health and well-being programs for major corporations and organizations around the world, including allocating a portion of the net proceeds to repay indebtedness and for general corporate and working capital purposes, the whole to allow the Company to maintain its financial commitments to its lenders, whose consent is necessary to complete the Acquisition.
The Offering is expected to close on or about July 29, 2021 (the “Closing Date“) and is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary approvals including the final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
The Offering will be made by way of private placement to certain accredited investors in each of the provinces of Canada. In addition, the Agents will offer the Units for sale by way of private placement exemptions (i) in the United States and (ii) in those jurisdictions outside of Canada and the United States that are agreed to by the Company and iA Private Wealth Inc.; provided it is understood that the Company will not be required to register or make any filings (other than reports on sales of securities in the United States and Canada) in such jurisdictions.
The securities to be issued under the Offering will have a hold period of four months and one day from the Closing Date.
At the closing of the Offering, the Company will pay to the Agents a cash fee equal to 6.0% of all gross proceeds raised in connection with the Offering (reduced to 1.0% for purchasers on the Company's president's list) and a number of warrants (the “Broker Warrants“) equal to 6.0% of the number of Units issued by the Company under the Offering including the Over-Allotment Option (reduced to 1.0% for purchasers on the Company's president's list). Each Broker Warrant shall entitle the Agents to acquire one Common Share at the Offering Price for a period of 24 months from the Closing Date, subject to compliance with the pricing requirements of the TSX Venture Exchange. The Company also agreed to pay iA Private Wealth Inc. a corporate finance work fee of $50,000 plus applicable taxes.
This news release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy any of the securities in the United States of America. The securities have not been and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “1933 Act“) or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold within the United States or to U.S. Persons (as defined under applicable securities laws) unless registered under the 1933 Act and applicable state securities laws, or an exemption from such registration is available.
