Inner Spirit Holdings Provides Offering Update and Announces Participation of Strategic Partners
May 15th, 2019
CALGARY, May 15, 2019 /CNW/ – Inner Spirit Holdings Ltd. (“Inner Spirit” or the “Company“) (CSE:ISH) today announced that two of its strategic partners, Auxly Cannabis Group Inc. (TSX.V:XLY) (“Auxly“) and Tilray, Inc. (NASDAQ:TLRY) (“Tilray“), will be participating in the previously announced short form prospectus offering (the “Offering“) of up to 7,500 convertible debenture units of the Company (the “Initial Units“). Auxly and Tilray have both indicated they intend to subscribe for Initial Units under the Offering, with Auxly confirming its intention to purchase a total of 1,500 Initial Units which represents $1,500,000 of the maximum $7,500,000 principal amount.
“We are very pleased to have this financial support from Auxly and Tilray who are valued and important strategic partners for our company. The Offering will provide Inner Spirit with the resources needed to continue to execute its business plan and provide our shareholders with additional value and growth while simultaneously supporting our franchise partners as we build out our national network,” said Darren Bondar, President and CEO of Inner Spirit.
The Offering is being made through a syndicate of agents, co-led by Acumen Capital Finance Partners Limited, as sole bookrunner, and Canaccord Genuity Corp. (the “Co-Lead Agents“). Closing of the Offering is expected to take place on or about May 24, 2019 (the “Closing Date“).
The Company has also granted to the Co-Lead Agents an over-allotment option (the “Over-Allotment Option“) exercisable from time to time in whole or in part, in the sole discretion of the Co-Lead Agents, up to 30 days from the Closing Date, to arrange for the sale of up to an additional 2,500 convertible debenture units (the “Additional Units,” and together with the Initial Units, the “Debenture Units“) for additional gross proceeds of up to $2,500,000 (or a total of $10,000,000 in aggregate gross proceeds if the Over-Allotment Option is exercised in full), on the same terms as the Initial Units to cover over-allotments, if any, and for market-stabilization purposes.
Inner Spirit anticipates using the proceeds of the Offering to build out and provide inventory for additional wholly-owned corporate Spiritleaf retail cannabis stores, to maintain real estate leases in the Ontario market, to design and produce Spiritleaf custom inventory for the Spiritleaf franchise system, and for working capital purposes.
