Vancouver, British Columbia and Rehovot, Israel--(Newsfile Corp. - August 4, 2021) - BioHarvest Sciences Inc. (CSE: BHSC) ("BioHarvest" or the "Company") announces that its board of directors has approved a private placement (the "Offering") for up to 8,888,889 units at a price of CAD 0.45 (the "Offering Price") per unit for gross proceeds of up to CAD 4,000,000.
Each unit will consist of one common share of the Company (a "Share") in the capital of the Company and one-half (1/2) of one share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant (a "Warrant") will entitle the purchaser to purchase one additional share at a fixed price of CAD 0.55 per Share for a period of one year from the closing of the Offering.
The funds will enhance the Company's cash position to:
Accelerate the Company's Cannabis development program.
Provide for the required system upgrades for the conversion of the existing 2 Tons/year VINIA® facility into a Cannabis production facility to be operational in H1/2022.
Enable the hiring of a number of key roles, which will be critical for the Company's further expansion.
Ilan Sobel, the CEO, said: "the progress we have made on the Cannabis development front requires us to take a more aggressive approach towards the commercialization of the Company's Cannabis based products. We now need to dedicate the required financial and human resources to the manufacturing of the BioFarming based Cannabis products. This includes the investment required to convert our existing 2Tons/year VINIA® factory located in Israel to a Cannabis producing facility, given the imminent commissioning of the 20Tons/year Super-Fruit Nutraceutical production facility in Israel. We have confidence we can close this financing in less than four weeks with the terms mentioned above."
In connection with the Offering, the Company may pay to registered investment dealers or finders (where permitted by law) cash commissions or finders fees of up to 5% of the cash proceeds of the Offering.
The Offering is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary approvals, including the approval of the Canadian Securities Exchange (the "Exchange"). The securities to be issued under the Offering will have a hold period expiring four months and one day from the date of issuance pursuant to applicable Canadian securities laws.
The securities described herein have not been, and will not be, registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "U.S. Securities Act"), or any state securities laws, and accordingly, may not be offered or sold within the United States except in compliance with the registration requirements of the U.S. Securities Act and applicable state securities requirements or pursuant to exemptions therefrom. This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation to buy any securities in any jurisdiction.
