VANCOUVER, B.C. —April 25, 2019 — Next Green Wave Holdings Inc. (CSE: NGW) (OTCQB: NXGWF) (“Next Green Wave”, “NGW” or the “Company”) announces that it intends to conduct a non-brokered private placement of 6,000 unsecured convertible notes at the price of $1,000 per convertible note (the “Notes”) totaling $6,000,000 (the “Offering”). The Offering will be issuable in two tranches (“Tranche 1” and “Tranche 2”).
The purpose and structure of the Offerings is to provide the Company with the financial flexibility to execute its rapid growth strategy model while continuing to maintain and protect shareholder value.
“The closing of this Offering will allow Next Green Wave the financial flexibility to be aggressive in rapidly expanding its operations and distribution of its brands and products in California,” said CEO, Leigh Hughes. “These funding partners have selectively invested in cannabis companies and this commitment ensures we protect our shareholder value moving forward.”
Terms of the Notes:
- Tranche 1 will consist of 3,000 Notes and Tranche 2 will consist of 3,000 Notes issuable upon an irrevocable draw down notice delivered by the Company to the subscribers and the issuance of a press release announcing Tranche 2 not later than 45 days following the closing date of Tranche 1.
- The Notes will mature and be repayable on a date that is 24 months from the relevant Tranche 1 or Tranche 2 closing date and will accrue interest at the rate of 8.5 per cent per annum payable in arrears semi-annually on June 30 and December 30 of each year.
- The principal amount is convertible, for no additional consideration, into common shares of NGW (the “Shares”) at the option of the holder at any time prior to the close of business on the maturity date, at a conversion price equal to the 5 trading day VWAP immediately preceding the closing date of the relevant Tranche 1 or Tranche 2 (each a “Conversion Price”).
- In connection with the issuance of each relevant tranche, the subscribers of the Notes will be issued non-transferable common share purchase warrants (the “Warrants”) entitling the purchase of 100% of the number of Shares issuable upon conversion of the Notes.
- Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one Share for a period of 24 months from the date of issue. Warrants issued pursuant to each tranche will have an exercise price equal to a 25% premium to the Conversion Price of the relevant tranche (the “Exercise Price”).
- The Company may force the conversion of the Notes and exercise of the Warrants if the Conversion Price or Exercise Price, as the case may be, is greater than a 100% premium to the applicable Conversion Price or Exercise Price as the case may be.
Closing of the Offering remains subject to the Company’s filing requirements with the CSE. M Partners Inc. acted as an advisor to the Company in respect of the Offering. The Company will pay an advisory fee to M Partners Inc. in connection with their role in the issuance of Notes under the Offering.
