TORONTO, ONTARIO – March 25, 2019 – Further to its press releases dated March 6, 2019, Drone Delivery Canada Corp. (TSXV: FLT, OTC: TAKOF) (the “Company”) is pleased to announce today that it has closed its previously announced bought-deal prospectus offering (the “Offering”) underwritten by GMP Securities L.P., Canaccord Genuity Corp. and Echelon Wealth Partners Inc. (collectively, the “Underwriters”), pursuant to which the Company issued an aggregate of 8,350,000 units (the “Units”) of the Company, at the purchase price of $1.20 per Unit (the “Issue Price”), for aggregate gross proceeds of $10,020,000. Each Unit consists of one common share in the capital of the Company (each a “Share”) and one-half of one Share purchase warrant of the Company (each whole such warrant a “Warrant”). Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one Share at a price of $1.50 until March 25, 2021. If the volume weighted average price of the Shares on the TSX Venture Exchange is equal to or greater than $2.00 for a period of 10 consecutive trading days, then the Company may within ten business days accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants to the date that is 30 days following the date on which the Company issues notice to all the Warrant holders of the new expiry date. The Company will also issue a press release on the same date as it issues notice confirming the new expiry date of the Warrants. The TSX Venture Exchange has conditionally approved the listing of the Warrants, subject to standard listing conditions. The Warrants are expected to commence trading on or about March 28, 2019.
The Units were offered by way of a short form prospectus filed in all provinces of Canada. The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the Offering to expand its commercial operations plan in Canada and potentially internationally by introducing larger, heavier-lifting drones to its fleet. Management and consultants of the Company invested an aggregate of $1,260,000 pursuant to the Offering.
The Company has granted the Underwriters an over-allotment option to purchase up to an additional 1,252,500 Units at the Offering Price, exercisable in whole or in part, at any time on or prior to April 24, 2019. The Underwriters were paid a cash commission equal to 6% of the gross proceeds raised, and were issued an aggregate of 250,500 compensation option (“Compensation Options”), each Compensation Option entitling the holder to one Unit at the Issue Price until March 25, 2021.
The securities issued pursuant to the Offering have not been, nor will they be, registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, U.S. persons absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements.
