LANGLEY, BC / ACCESSWIRE / July 14, 2020 / Adastra Labs Holdings Ltd. (CSE:XTRX)(FRA:D2EP) ("Adastra", "XTRX", or the "Company") is pleased to announce the closing of its previously announced non-brokered private placement offering (see press releases dated June 18, 2020 and June 25, 2020) issuing 11,648,001 units (the "Units") for aggregate gross proceeds of $3,494,400.
Each Unit consists of one common share of the Company (a "Share") and one common share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one Share at a price of $0.50 for a period of 24 months from the date of issuance; provided that if the closing Share trading price exceeds $0.70 per share for any ten consecutive trading days, then the expiry date of the Warrants can be accelerated at the Company's option to the date that is 30 days after the date the Company provides notice of acceleration by press release to the holders of the Warrants.
In conjunction with the financing, finders fees of $21,600 in cash will be paid and 72,000 compensation options (each a "Compensation Option") will be issued to Ascenta Finance Corp. Each Compensation Option will entitle the holder to purchase one Unit on the same terms as the offering for a period of 24 months from the date of issuance. Each underlying common share purchase warrant (a "Compensation Option Warrant") will be subject to the same terms as the Warrants. If the Warrants are accelerated prior to the exercise of the Compensation Option, each Compensation Option Warrant will expire 30 days after the date of exercise of the Compensation Option.
The securities issued pursuant to the financing are subject to a four-month-and-one-day hold period and were not offered or registered in the United States.
The net proceeds from the financing will be used for equipment purchases of approximately $1,500,000 to expand extraction process lines into cryo-ethanol and hydrocarbon extraction methods over the coming months. Additionally, 300,000 Euro will be used for a three month marketing campaign by BullVestor Medien GmbH ("BVM") to assist in building awareness of the Company to a wider European audience. BVM is an arm's-length service provider to the company. To the knowledge of the Company, BVM does not directly or indirectly own any of the Company's securities. The remaining proceeds will be used for general working capital purposes.
Additional details respecting the private placement can be found in the Form 9 filed in accordance with the rules of the Canadian Securities Exchange, a copy of which is accessible at www.thecse.com under the Company's profile.
