VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 18, 2020 — New Leaf Ventures Inc. (CSE: NLV) (“New Leaf” or the “Company”) announces that it intends to amend the terms of certain common share purchase warrants originally issued on February 26, 2019 (the “Warrants”).
An aggregate of 12,000,000 Warrants were initially issued at an exercise price of $0.05 per common share of New Leaf (each, a “Common Share“) in connection with a non-brokered private placement of units. New Leaf intends to amend the exercise price of the Warrants such that the Warrants will have an exercise price of $0.25 per Common Share (the “Warrant Repricing”). All other provisions of the Warrants will remain unchanged, including the expiry date of February 26, 2021.
As consideration for the Warrant Repricing, the Company is proposing on June 19, 2020 to issue to the holders of Warrants (the “Holders”) an additional 12,000,000 common share purchase warrants (the “Additional Warrants”), whereby each Holder shall receive one (1) Additional Warrant for every one (1) Warrant currently held. The Additional Warrants entitles the Holder to purchase one Common Share at an exercise price of $0.40 per Common Share for a period of twenty-four (24) months from the date of issuance. In addition, as consideration for the Warrant Repricing, the Warrants shall no longer be subject to escrow pursuant to the voluntary escrow agreement entered into between the Company, the Holders and Odyssey Trust Company dated April 30, 2020. As further consideration for the Warrant Repricing, the Company is also proposing to release the Warrants from voluntary escrow effective June 19, 2020 (under which such voluntary escrow, the Warrants were otherwise to be released in tranches over a period of five months following listing of the Common Shares).
All of these Holders have consented to the Warrant Repricing.
