dynaCERT Inc. (TSX: DYA) (OTCQX: DYFSF) (FRA: DMJ) ("dynaCERT" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has closed the initial tranche of its non-brokered private placement (the Offering") of up to 40,000,000 units with the issuance of 19,338,554 units for gross proceeds of $2,900,783. Each unit (a "Unit") is priced at $0.15 per Unit for a total maximum Offering of $6,000,000. All dollar values are in Canadian dollars.
The Company is also pleased to announce that it has applied to the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") to extend the Offering for a further thirty (30) days, as the Company is continuing to receive subscriptions and further expressions of interest to participate in the Offering. Subject to approval of the TSX, one or more additional tranches of the Offering may be completed.
Each Unit consists of one (1) common share of the Company (a "Common Share") and one-half (1/2) of a common share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant (a "Warrant") is exercisable into one (1) Common Share at an exercise price of $0.20 per Warrant at any time for a period commencing upon the closing of the Offering (the "Closing Date") for a period of thirty-six months thereafter. If at any time after the date that is four months and one day after the Closing Date, the closing trading price of the Common Shares on the Toronto Stock Exchange is greater than $0.35 per Common Share for a period of ten (10) consecutive business days, then the Company may give notice thereof to the holders of the Warrants, and, in such case, the expiry time of the Warrants shall be accelerated and shall be the 30th day after the date on which such notice is deemed to have been given by the Company.
In connection with the first tranche closing, an aggregate of 5,000 compensation warrants have been issued, each being exercisable into one (1) Common Share at an exercise price of $0.15 for a period of twenty-four (24) months. A cash commission of 5% has also been paid in respect of such subscription. Subject to applicable securities regulation, the Company may pay finders fees consisting of up to 5% cash and 5% per cent compensation warrants in connection with the Offering.
The Offering is being offered for sale to purchasers (i) in all provinces of Canada pursuant to available private placement exemptions, (ii) in the United States on a private placement basis pursuant to available exemptions from the registration requirements under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and (iii) in offshore jurisdictions as may be agreed to by the Company pursuant to available prospectus or registration exemptions in accordance with applicable laws.
All of the securities issued under the first tranche closing (including all underlying securities) are subject to a statutory hold period that will expire on April 5, 2024. An insider purchased an aggregate of $150,000 or 1,000,000 Units under the first tranche of this Offering. Such subscription is considered to be a related party transaction and is therefore subject to the provisions of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - "Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions", however exemptions are available from the minority shareholder approval and valuation requirements set forth in the foregoing Multilateral Instrument. No commissions are payable in respect of the fist tranche of the Offering.
The gross proceeds of the Offering will be used to finance sales of the Company's HydraGEN™ Technology Products to participants in the mining, oil & gas, transportation and generator sectors on a global basis, for working capital and debt repayment, for general corporate purposes, an equity investment in Cipher Neutron Inc., and to settle advisory fees and permitted finders' fees under applicable securities legislation, including advisory fees payable to Canaccord Genuity Corp., a financial advisor to the Company.
The securities offered hereby have not and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933 (the "1933 Act") and may not be offered or sold in the United States or to U.S. persons (as defined in Regulation S under the 1933 Act) unless the securities have been registered under the 1933 Act or are otherwise exempt from such registration.
