TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / June 14, 2019 / Kontrol Energy Corp. (CSE: KNR, OTCQB: KNRLF, FSE:1K8) ("Kontrol" or "Company") is pleased to announce a private placement offering of up to 4,000 convertible debentures of the Company (the "Debentures"), at a price of $1,000 per Debenture, for gross proceeds of up to $4,000,000 (the "Offering"). The Company intends to use net proceeds of the Offering to complete acquisitions, expand into the US market through its Smart Factory platform and for general corporate purposes.
The Debentures will bear interest at a rate of 8.0% per annum, payable on the last business day of each calendar quarter. The Debentures will be convertible in full or in part, at the holders' option, into Common Shares, at any time prior to their maturity at a conversion price of $1.05 (the "Conversion Price"), representing a premium of approximately 25% to the $0.85 volume weighted average trading price of the Common Shares for the 20 consecutive trading days ending on June 10, 2019. Holders converting their Debentures will receive a cash payment equal to accrued and unpaid interest thereon for the period from and including the date of the latest interest payment date to, and including, the date of conversion.
At any time after the date that is eighteen months following the Closing Date, the Company may force the conversion of the principal amount of the then outstanding Debentures at the Conversion Price on not less than 30 days' notice if the volume weighted average trading price of the Common Shares for any 20 consecutive trading day period is greater than $1.40.
The Company shall pay finders and brokers a cash commission equal to 6.5% of the gross proceeds from sales attributable to such persons. In addition, the Company will grant finders and introducing brokers common share purchase warrants (the "Compensation Warrants") equal to the quotient obtained by dividing 6.0% of the gross proceeds from sales attributable to such persons by $1.05. Each Compensation Warrant shall be exercisable to purchase one Common Share of the Company at a price of $0.90 for a period of 24 months from the Closing Date.
The Debentures will be unsecured obligations of the Company and will rank pari passu in right of payment of principal and interest with all of the existing and future unsecured senior indebtedness of the Company and will be issued pursuant to the terms of a debenture indenture to be entered into between the Company and a debenture trustee to be determined. The Debentures will be eligible for RRSP, RESP, RRIF, TFSA and DPSP accounts and will be subject to a statutory hold period that extends four months and one day from the closing date of the Offering.
The Debenture swill be offered and sold by private placement (i) in Canada to "accredited investors" within the meaning of NI 45-106 - Prospectus Exemptions and other exempt purchasers in each province of Canada, and (ii) outside Canada and the United States on a basis which does not require the qualification or registration of any of the Debentures or the Company. All securities issued under the Offering will be subject to a statutory four month hold period.
Closing of the Offering is subject to the satisfaction of customary conditions, including the approval of the CSE. The Offering is expected to be completed in multiple tranches, with the initial closing to occur on or about July 4th, 2019.
