City View Green Holdings Inc. Announces Early Warrant Exercise Incentive Program
Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - September 15, 2020) - City View Green Holdings Inc. (CSE: CVGR) ("City View" or the "Company"), trading through the facilities of the Canadian Securities Exchange ("CSE") under the symbol "CVGR" and on the OTCQB® under the symbol "CVGRF" announces that it has implemented a warrant exercise incentive program (the "Incentive Program") designed to encourage the early exercise of up to 24,350,000 outstanding unlisted warrants (the "Eligible Warrants"), each of which is exercisable for one common share of the Company at a price of $0.05 per share. Of the 24,350,000 Eligible Warrants, 10,600,000 Eligible Warrants will expire on April 30, 2023, 6,000,000 Eligible Warrants will expire on May 22, 2023, and 7,750,000 Eligible Warrants will expire on June 17, 2023. The Eligible Warrants were originally issued by City View as part of a private placement unit offering completed in three tranches on April 30, 2020, May 22, 2020 and June 17, 2020. A total of 2,000,000 Eligible Warrants are held by directors and officers of the Company who may participate in the Incentive Program.
The Incentive Program will commence on September 15, 2020 and expire on September 30, 2020 (the "Incentive Program Expiry Date").
Pursuant to the Incentive Program, the Company has approved the amendment to the terms of the Eligible Warrants such that each holder of an Eligible Warrant who elects to exercise their Eligible Warrant at the price of $0.05 prior to the Incentive Program Expiry Date will receive one common share of the Company plus one-half of one (0.5) common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "New Warrant"). Each New Warrant will allow the holder to acquire one additional common share of the Company at a price of $0.20 per share for a period of two years from the date of issuance of the New Warrant. No fractional New Warrants will be issued. The number of New Warrants issued on exercise of the Eligible Warrants will be rounded down to the nearest whole number, without compensation due or owing therefor. The New Warrants, and any shares issued upon exercise thereof, will be subject to a four-month hold period pursuant to applicable securities laws.
At 5:00 pm (PST) on September 30, 2020, the Incentive Program will end and all Eligible Warrants not exercised under the Incentive Program will revert back to their original terms and conditions.
If all Eligible Warrants are exercised during the Incentive Program exercise period, City View will:
receive gross proceeds of $1,217,500 on or before the New Warrant Expiry Date;
issue 24,350,000 common shares pursuant to the exercise of the Eligible Warrants in accordance with the original terms of the Eligible Warrants; and,
issue up to 12,175,000 New Warrants to holders of the Eligible Warrants so exercised.
The terms and conditions of the Incentive Program and the method of exercising Eligible Warrants pursuant to the Eligible Warrant Exercise Program will be set forth in a letter/email to be delivered to each holder of Eligible Warrants.
To be eligible for the Incentive Program, the holder must complete and deliver to the Company (i) their original Eligible Warrant Certificate, (ii) a completed Exercise Form in the form attached as a schedule to their Eligible Warrant Certificate, (iii) payment for the full exercise price of such Eligible Warrants, and (iv) a Prospectus Exemption Certificate, in such form as is satisfactory to the Company, or otherwise the Company must be satisfied that the distribution of New Warrants to such holder would be exempt from prospectus requirements.
To the extent that holders of the Eligible Warrants take advantage of the opportunity to exercise their Eligible Warrants early, this will strengthen City View's current cash position.
The Company also announces that that it has granted incentive stock options to certain directors, officers and consultants of City View to purchase up to an aggregate of 14,320,000 common shares of the Company pursuant to the company's share option plan. The options are exercisable for a period of 5 years at a price of $0.10 per share. These securities will have a hold period expiring January 15, 2021, in accordance with the policies of the CSE and applicable securities laws.
