Sacramento, California – (February 22, 2021) – Vibe Growth Corporation (CSE: VIBE) (OTC: VBSCF) (FSE: A061) (the “Company” or “Vibe”), a vertically integrated cannabis enterprise, has entered into an agreement with Beacon Securities Limited (“Beacon”), as lead underwriter and sole bookrunner, on its own behalf and on behalf of a syndicate of underwriters (together with Beacon, the “Underwriters”), pursuant to which the Underwriters have agreed to purchase, on a bought deal private placement basis, 9,800,000 units (the “Units”) of the Company at a price of $0.82 per Unit (the “Offering Price”) for aggregate gross proceeds of $8,036,000 (the “Offering”).
Each Unit will consist of one (1) common share in the capital of the Company (a “Common Share”) and one-half (0.5) of one Common Share purchase warrant (each whole Common Share purchase warrant, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to acquire an additional Common Share at a price of $1.06 for a period of 36 months from the Closing Date (as defined below); provided, however, that if the volume-weighted average closing price of the Common Shares on the Canadian Securities Exchange (or any such other stock exchange in Canada as the Common Shares may trade at the applicable time) is greater than or equal to $2.12 per Common Share for a period of ten (10) consecutive trading days at any time after the Closing Date, the Company may, in its sole discretion, and upon giving notice to holders of warrants, accelerate the expiry of the Warrants to the date that is 30 days following the date of such notice.
The Company has also granted the Underwriters an option (the “Underwriters’ Option”), exercisable in whole or in part, by Beacon giving notice to the Company at any time up to 48 hours prior to the Closing Date to purchase up to an additional 1,4700,000 Units at the Offering Price for additional gross proceeds of up to $1,205,400.
Mark Waldron, CEO of Vibe stated: “With this financing, Vibe has strengthened its balance sheet in order to profitably expand its retail store and cultivation assets in California, and further accelerate its revenue growth and profitability in 2021 and beyond.”
The net proceeds from the Offering are expected to be used for working capital and general corporate purposes. Closing of the Offering is expected to occur on or about March 16, 2021 or such other date as mutually agreed to by Beacon and the Company (the “Closing Date“) and is subject to certain customary conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals and acceptance of the Canadian Securities Exchange. All securities to be issued pursuant to the Offering will be subject to a four-month hold period under applicable Canadian securities laws.
The Units offered have not been, and will not be, registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “U.S. Securities Act”) or any U.S. state securities laws, and may not be offered or sold in the United States or to, or for the benefit or account of, any U.S. Person (as defined in Rule 902(k) of Regulation S under the U.S. Securities Act) or person in the United States, unless exempt from such registration requirements. This release shall not constitute an offer to sell, or a solicitation of an offer to buy, securities in the United States, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
