TORONTO, Feb. 25, 2021 /CNW/ – Killi Ltd. (the “Company” or “Killi“) (TSXV: MYID) is pleased to announce that it intends to complete a non-brokered private placement of up to 23,076,923 units (each, a “Unit” and collectively, the “Units“) of the Company at a price of $0.13 per Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of up to $3,000,000 (the “Offering“). Each Unit will consist of one common share (each, a “Common Share” and collectively, the “Common Shares“) in the capital of the Company and one common share purchase warrant (each, a “Warrant” and collectively, the “Warrants“) of the Company. Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to acquire one Common Share at an exercise price of $0.21 per Common Share for a period of 24 months from the date of issuance thereof.
If during the exercise period of the Warrants, the Common Shares trade at or above a volume-weighted average trading price of $0.30 per Common Share for 20 consecutive trading days, the Company may accelerate the expiry time of the Warrants to 30 days from the date on which the Company provides written notice to the holders of the Warrants.
No commissions or fees will be payable in connection with this Offering. The net proceeds of the Offering will be used for general working capital requirements.
The Offering is expected to close on or about March 5th, 2021, and is subject to all regulatory approvals including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. All securities issued pursuant to the Offering will be subject to a hold period of four months plus one day from the date of issuance thereof in accordance with applicable securities laws.
To demonstrate continued support of the Company’s growth plans, insiders of the Company, including certain directors and officers, plan to participate in the Offering. Such participation is considered a related party transaction within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101“). The related party transaction will be exempt from minority approval, information circular and formal valuation requirements pursuant to the exemptions contained in Sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101, as neither the fair market value of the gross securities to be issued under the Offering nor the consideration to be paid by the insiders exceeds 25% of the Company’s market capitalization.
