Wolf and CX One Announce Closing of Non-Brokered Subscription Receipt Financing and Provide Update to Proposed Transaction
Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - December 4, 2020) - Further to the press release dated October 14, 2020, Wolf Acquisition Corp. (TSXV: WOLF.P) ("Wolf" or the "Company") and CX One Inc. ("CX One") are pleased to announce that CX One has completed a non-brokered private placement offering of subscription receipts ("Subscription Receipts") for aggregate gross proceeds of $2,168,922 (the "Offering"). The Offering was completed in connection with the previously announced proposed reverse takeover of the Company (the "Proposed Transaction") by CX One and Frontera Gold Inc. ("Frontera"), which transaction is intended to constitute Wolf's "Qualifying Transaction" pursuant to Policy 2.4 of the TSX Venture Exchange Inc. (the "Exchange").
CX One issued 18,074,350 Subscription Receipts at a price of $0.12 per Subscription Receipt (the "Offering Price") for aggregate gross proceeds of $2,168,922 (the "Proceeds"). Prior to completion of the Proposed Transaction, and upon satisfaction of the escrow release conditions (the "Escrow Release Conditions") before the termination date (the "Termination Date"), each Subscription Receipt will automatically convert, without further action or payment of any additional consideration therefor, into one unit in the capital of CX One (each, a "Unit"). Each Unit consists of one common share in the capital of CX One (a "Common Share") and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"), which Units shall be exchanged, without further action or payment of any additional consideration therefor, for one Unit in the capital of Wolf (the "Resulting Issuer") upon the completion of the Proposed Transaction. Following the exchange for Units of the Resulting Issuer, each Warrant shall entitle the holder thereof to acquire one common share of the Resulting Issuer (a "Resulting Issuer Share") at an exercise price of $0.20 for a period of 24 months following the listing on the Exchange of the Resulting Issuer Shares (the "Listing Date"), subject to adjustment and acceleration.
The Proceeds of the Offering (the "Escrowed Funds") will be held in escrow pursuant to the terms of a subscription receipt agreement dated December 2, 2020 between CX One and Odyssey Trust Company, as registrar and transfer agent for the subscription receipts and as escrow agent for the Escrowed Funds (the "Subscription Receipt Agreement"). Upon satisfaction or waiver of the Escrow Release Conditions including, among other things, the satisfaction or waiver of all conditions precedent to the completion of the Proposed Transaction, the Escrowed Funds together with any interest earned thereon will be released to CX One in accordance with the terms set out in the Subscription Receipt Agreement. If the Escrow Release Conditions are not satisfied or waived on or before the Termination Date, or if the Proposed Transaction is not completed, the Subscription Receipts will be cancelled without any further action and the Escrowed Funds (less any withholding taxes) together with any interest earned thereon will be returned to subscribers on a pro rata basis. Upon completion of the Proposed Transaction, the Escrowed Funds, together with any interest earned thereon, will be used for exploration and development activities at the Hot Springs gold property located in Nevada, USA, and for general working capital purposes.
Mr. Sidney Himmel, President and CEO of CX One, comments: "Our management team and board are very pleased with the oversubscription of this financing. Upon completion of the listing process, this financing places the Resulting Issuer in a strong cash position to execute our exploration plan at the highly prospective intersection of Gethchell/Battle Mountain gold trends in Nevada and to pursue potential acquisition opportunities for advanced exploration and development assets. CX One has assembled a proven team of entrepreneurs and technical experts that is very well positioned to execute our plan and have that reflected in the value of our company to the benefit of all stakeholders. I would like to personally thank all those involved in the completion of this financing and investors for their support."
In connection with the Offering, and in respect of purchasers introduced to CX One by certain registered dealers and other permitted individuals (each, a "Finder"), CX One paid a total aggregate cash finder's fee of $28,050 (a "Finder's Fee") and issued 233,753 Warrants (each, a "Finder's Warrant"). Each Finder's Warrant is exercisable into one Common Share at an exercise price of $0.20 per Common Share for a period of 24 months following the Listing Date, subject to adjustment and acceleration. The Finder's Warrants shall be exchanged, on an equivalent basis, for common share purchase warrants of the Resulting Issuer on an equivalent basis upon completion of the Proposed Transaction.
The non-binding letter of intent entered in between the parties on November 3, 2020 has since been amended ("Letter of Intent") to extend, among other timelines, the deadline for entering into a definitive agreement in respect of the Proposed Transaction (the "Definitive Agreement"), which date has been extended to December 17, 2020. Upon execution of a Definitive Agreement a press release with further particulars relating to the Proposed Transaction and the Definitive Agreement will follow, in accordance with the policies of the Exchange.
