VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 21, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Emerald Health Therapeutics, Inc. (“Emerald”) (TSXV: EMH; OTCQX: EMHTF), has entered into a binding term sheet with a single Canadian institutional accredited investor (the “Investor”) under which the Investor has agreed, subject to certain customary conditions, to purchase 11,351,351 units of Emerald (each, a “Unit”) at a price of $0.185 per Unit for total gross proceeds of $2,100,000 (the “Offering”).
Each Unit will consist of one common share of Emerald (each, a “Common Share”) and one common share purchase warrant (each, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant will entitle the Investor to acquire one additional Common Share (each, a “Warrant Share”) at a price of $0.27 per Warrant Share for a period of three years following the closing of the Offering. In the event that the closing sale price of the Common Shares on the TSX Venture Exchange, or such other principal exchange on which the Common Shares are then trading, is greater than $0.40 per Share for a period of ten consecutive trading days at any time after the closing of the Offering, Emerald may accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants by giving written notice to the Investor and in such case the Warrants will expire on the 15th day after the date on which such notice is given by Emerald.
Emerald intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering for general working capital purposes.
The Units will be offered by way of a shelf prospectus supplement to be filed in all of the provinces of Canada pursuant to National Instrument 44-102 – Shelf Distributions.
The closing date of the Offering is scheduled to be on or about May 26, 2020 and is subject to certain customary conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange and applicable securities regulatory authorities.
This press release will not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor will there be any sale of the securities in any state in which such offer, solicitation, or sale would be unlawful. The securities being offered have not been, nor will they be, registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and applicable state securities laws.
