Hypercharge Completes $6 Million Private Placement of Subscription Receipts
Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - June 1, 2022) - Hypercharge Networks Corp. (the "Company" or "Hypercharge") is pleased to announce that it has closed a private placement of subscription receipts of Hypercharge (the "Subscription Receipts"), consisting of the issuance of an aggregate of 10,000,000 Subscriptions Receipts at a price of $0.60 per Subscription Receipt (the "Issue Price") for aggregate gross proceeds to Hypercharge of $6,000,000 (the "Offering"), including 1,666,667 Subscription Receipts issued at the Issue Price for gross proceeds of $1,000,000 in connection with the full exercise of the over-allotment option granted to the Agents (as defined below) under the Offering. Haywood Securities Inc. acted as the lead agent and sole bookrunner of the Offering, with Clarus Securities Inc., Eight Capital and Research Capital Corporation also acting as agents (collectively, the "Agents").
The Subscription Receipts were created and issued pursuant to the terms of a subscription receipt agreement, dated June 1, 2022, among Hypercharge, Haywood, on behalf of itself and the other Agents, and Odyssey Trust Company (the "Subscription Receipt Agent"), as subscription receipt agent. Each Subscription Receipt will be deemed to be automatically converted, without payment of additional consideration or further action by the holder thereof, into one common share in the capital of Hypercharge (a "Hypercharge Share") after the satisfaction of the following conditions (the "Escrow Release Conditions"): (i) the Company having obtained a final receipt for a final prospectus qualifying the distribution of the Hypercharge Shares; (ii) the Hypercharge Shares having been conditionally approved for listing on the NEO Exchange Inc. (the "Exchange"); and (iii) the Company and Haywood, on behalf itself and the other Agents, having delivered notice to the Subscription Receipt Agent confirming that the conditions set forth in (i) and (ii) above have been met. The Escrow Release Conditions must be satisfied before 5:00 p.m. (Toronto Time) on September 29, 2022 (the "Escrow Release Deadline").
In consideration for their services in connection with the Offering, Hypercharge will pay to the Agents a cash fee (the "Agent's Fee") equal to 7% of the gross proceeds from the sale of the Subscription Receipts (which will be reduced to 3.5% in respect of proceeds from president's list purchasers) (the "Cash Fee"), which will be payable as follows: 50% of the Cash Fee was paid to the Agents on the closing of the Offering (the "Closing") and; (ii) the remaining 50% of the Cash Fee was deposited into escrow with the Subscription Receipt Agent and shall be paid to the Agents upon and subject to the satisfaction or waiver of the Escrow Release Conditions. As additional consideration for the services of the Agents, Hypercharge also issued to the Agents compensation options of Hypercharge (the "Compensation Options") equal to 7% of the number of Subscription Receipts sold under the Offering (which will be reduced to 3.5% in respect of proceeds from president's list purchasers). Each Compensation Option will be exercisable for by the holder thereof to acquire one Hypercharge Share at a price per share that is equal to the Issue Price a period of 24 months following the earlier of: (i) the Escrow Release Deadline; and (ii) the date on which the Escrow Release Conditions are satisfied. Hypercharge also paid to Haywood a corporate finance fee of $100,000 (the "Corporate Finance Fee").
On closing of the Offering, 50% of the Agent's Fee was paid to the Agents and 50% of the Corporate Finance Fee was paid to Haywood, with the remaining 50% of the Agent's Fee and 50% of the Corporate Finance Fee deposited in escrow with the Subscription Receipt Agent.
If the Escrow Release Conditions are not satisfied prior to the Escrow Release Deadline, or if prior to such time, the Company provides written notice to Haywood and the Subscription Receipt Agent or announces to the public that it does not intend to file a final prospectus qualifying the distribution of the Hypercharge Shares or proceed with the listing of the Hypercharge Shares on the Exchange, or that it otherwise does not intend to proceed with the satisfaction of the Escrow Release Conditions, each of the then outstanding Subscription Receipts will be cancelled and the Subscription Receipt Agent will return to each holder of Subscription Receipts an amount equal to the aggregate Issue Price of the Subscription Receipts held by the holder plus an amount equal to the holder's pro rata share of interest or other income earned on the escrowed funds (less applicable withholding tax and the Agents' expenses).
The proceeds of the Offering are expected to be used for general corporate purposes.
