(TSXV: ESS) ("Esstra" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the non-brokered private placement previously announced on July 16, 2020 (the "Private Placement") has closed. Under the Private Placement, the Company issued 1,500,000 units ("Units") at a price of $0.20 per Unit for gross proceeds of $300,000. Each Unit was comprised of one (1) common share in the capital of the Company (each a "Common Share") and one-half of one (1/2) transferrable Common Share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). All securities issued under the Private Placement, including securities issuable on exercise thereof, are subject to a hold period expiring December 8, 2020 (the "Hold Period"), in accordance with the rules and policies of the TSX Venture Exchange and applicable Canadian securities laws. Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one Common Share at a price of $0.40 per Common Share until August 7, 2022, subject to accelerated expiry provisions. In the event the closing price of the Company's Common Shares exceeds $0.80 per Common Share for a period of ten (10) consecutive trading days following the expiry of the Hold Period, then at the Company's election, the 24 month period within which the Warrants are exercisable will be reduced and the holders of the Warrants will be entitled to exercise their Warrants for a period of 30 days commencing on the day the Company provides the acceleration notice via press release or written notice to all Warrant holders (the "Acceleration Period"). Any outstanding Warrants not exercised during the Acceleration Period will expire on completion of the Acceleration Period.
