VANCOUVER, BC, Sept. 8, 2020 /CNW/ – 1933 Industries Inc. (the “Company” or “1933 Industries”) (CSE: TGIF) (OTCQX: TGIFF), a vertically-integrated cannabis consumer packaged goods company with a diverse portfolio of consumer-driven brands, announces that it has closed its private placement originally announced on July 17, 2020, with the issuance of 10,510,040 Units at a price of $0.075 per Unit for gross proceeds of $788,253. Each Unit consists of one common share and one-half share purchase warrants, with each whole warrant being exercisable at a price of $0.125 until September 3, 2022 and is subject to an accelerated expiry if the closing price of the Company’s common shares exceeds C$0.25 per share for a period of 10 consecutive trading days.
A total of $6,037.50 was paid and 40,250 warrants were issued as a finder’s fee in connection with the closing. All securities issued in connection with the private placement are subject to a regulatory hold period expiring on January 5, 2021.
Proceeds from the private placement will be used for ongoing business development and general working capital.
Due to insider participation in the private placement, it is considered a related party transaction within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 (“MI 61-101”). The participation is exempt from the need to obtain minority shareholder approval and a formal valuation on the basis that insider participation is less than 25% of the Issuer’s market capital.
Mr. Paul Rosen, CEO of 1933 Industries, stated: “The proceeds of the private placement as well as the progress we have made in converting our debentures, in conjunction with the cost control measures we have implemented have positively strengthened our balance sheet and provide the Company the necessary runway and security to continue to execute on our business and its successful turnaround. We believe that the market is undervaluing the Company’s stock, and therefore do not see the value in keeping the current private placement open. We remain laser focused on our performance and long-term commitment to increase shareholder value.”
Mr. Eugene Ruiz, President of the Company, stated: “A number of positive achievements have been accomplished over the last three months since Paul and I took over the Company’s executive management. We have significantly reduced our cash burn and together with a steady increase in sales and sufficient capital on hand, we expect to achieve cash flow breakeven in the near future. Our progress to achieve this includes: reorganizing nearly every operating area to reduce expenses, while deploying a portion of those savings into a new sales team and increased marketing efforts which have begun to generate solid improvements in sales; bringing our cultivation facility to full inventory and production, which we anticipate will be a significant contributor to earnings and growth going forward; and terminating certain previous branding deals and partnerships which reduced the Company’s cash position while providing little prospects for meaningful profits in the future.
In addition, we are pleased to report the upcoming launch of our premium packaged smokable flower into the Nevada market, which will be available in dispensaries this month, providing anticipated meaningful revenue increases as we enter the largest segment of the cannabis market with a top tier product. The local cannabis demand for premium flower has remained robust even during the Covid period, providing the Company with optimism that it will be able to sell all of its flower product into the market under existing market conditions. This confidence is further bolstered by the fact that tourism traffic continues to pick up in Las Vegas.”
Since all the amendments put forth by the Company were approved by holders of 10% Senior Unsecured Convertible Debentures Due September 14, 2021 (news release dated June 29, 2020), the Company reports that $2,836,000 in principal has been converted into 28,360,000 shares and $160,697.07 in interest has been converted into 1,606,970 shares.
The Company announces the following updates regarding its subsidiaries’ non-cash licensing agreements:
- Alternative Medicine Association (AMA) ended its licensing agreement with OG DNA Genetics Inc., expiring on September 18, 2020.
- AMA did not renew its licensing agreement with Denver Dab Co., which ended on August 31, 2020.
- Infused MFG did not renew its license agreement to manufacture Canna Hemp™ products in Colorado. The agreement ended on August 31, 2020.
