Lifestyle Global Brands Limited Announces Termination of Engagement Letter
Calgary, Alberta--(Newsfile Corp. - September 9, 2019) - Lifestyle Global Brands Limited (TSXV: GBE.V) ("Lifestyle Global" or the "Company") ("LGBL"), Lifestyle Global Brands Corp. ("LGBC") and CannHeath Group Limited ("CannHealth") announce that they have terminated the engagement letter with Richardson GMP Limited with respect to the previously announced proposed brokered private placement of subscription receipt of LGBC ("Subscription Receipts").
Instead, Lifestyle Global, LGBC and CannHealth are pleased to announce that the private placement for Subscription Receipts will be conducted on a non-brokered basis (the "Private Placement"), for a minimum of $5,000,000 of Subscription Receipts and a maximum of $20,000,000 of Subscription Receipts at a price of $0.65 per Subscription Receipt.
The Private Placement is being conducted in connection with the share purchase agreement dated April 18, 2019 (the "Share Purchase Agreement") pursuant to which Lifestyle Global will acquire all of the issued and outstanding ordinary shares of CannHealth (the "Proposed Transaction"). CannHealth is a specialty beverage company and upon completion of the Proposed Transaction, the issuer resulting from the Proposed Transaction (the "Resulting Issuer") will carry on the business previously carried on by CannHealth. It is anticipated that upon completion of the Proposed Transaction, the shares of the Resulting Issuer will be delisted from the TSX Venture Exchange and will be listed on the Canadian Securities Exchange. Details of the Proposed Transaction are set forth in the Company's May 8, 2019 news release, a copy of which is available on the Company's profile at www.sedar.com.
General Information about the Private Placement
Each Subscription Receipt will be automatically exchanged, upon satisfaction of certain escrow conditions, into one unit of LGBC (a "Unit"). Each Unit shall consist of one LGBC common share (each an "Underlying Share") and one-half of one LGBC common share purchase warrant (each an "Underlying Warrant"). Each whole Underlying Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to acquire one LGBC common share at an exercise price of $0.90 for a period of 24 months from the date the ordinary shares of the Resulting Issuer ("Resulting Issuer Shares") are listed on the Canadian Stock Exchange (the "Listing"). Concurrent with the completion of the Proposed Transaction, each Underlying Share and Underlying Warrant will be exchanged for one Resulting Issuer Share and one Resulting Issuer Share purchase warrant, respectively. If the escrow conditions are not met by the release deadline, all subscription proceeds will be returned to the subscribers without deduction.
It is expected that certain finders may receive a cash commission and compensation warrants (the "Compensation Warrants"). Each Compensation Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to acquire one Unit at an exercise price of $0.90 for a period of 24 months following the Listing. Concurrent with the completion of the Proposed Transaction, each Compensation Warrant will be exchanged for one Resulting Issuer Share and one-half of one Resulting Issuer Share purchase warrant.
The net proceeds of the Private Placement are intended to be used by the Resulting Issuer for expansion of its operations and general corporate purposes.
The Lifestyle Global Shares are currently halted from trading and are not expected to resume trading until completion of the Proposed Transaction.
Investors are cautioned that, except as disclosed in the Listing Statement to be prepared in connection with the Proposed Transaction, any information released or received with respect to the Proposed Transaction may not be accurate or complete and should not be relied upon. Trading in the securities of Lifestyle Global should be considered highly speculative.
Neither the TSX Venture Exchange nor the Canadian Securities Exchange have passed upon the merits of the Proposed Transaction and have not approved nor disapproved the contents of this news release.
