TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / February 23, 2021 / County Capital 2 Ltd. ("County 2" or the "Corporation") is pleased to announce that it completed an initial public offering ("IPO") of 6,000,000 common shares at a price of $0.10 per share for gross proceeds of $600,000 and is now listed on the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange"). It is anticipated that the common shares of the Corporation will commence trading on the Exchange today under the stock symbol "CTWO.P".
When combined with the cash proceeds raised prior to the IPO, the Corporation has raised total gross proceeds of $1,888,650 and has a total of 23,886,500 common shares issued and outstanding, of which 10,670,000 are currently held in escrow pursuant to the policies of the Exchange.
The net proceeds of the offering, together with the proceeds from prior sales, will be used by the Corporation to identify and evaluate assets or businesses for acquisition with a view to completing a "Qualifying Transaction" under the Exchange's capital pool company program ("CPC").
"County 2 is one of the largest CPCs currently listed on the Exchange," commented Tyler Lang, President of the Corporation. "With only 32 actively trading CPCs, County 2 is well positioned to attract a private company looking to leverage our experience and deep fundraising network to complete a public listing," continued Lang1.
Canaccord Genuity Corp. (the "Agent") acted as agent for the initial public offering. In connection with the offering, the Corporation granted to the Agent and its selling group non-transferable warrants to acquire up to an aggregate of 600,000 common shares (the "Agent's Warrants"). Each Agent's Warrant is exercisable to acquire one common share at a price of $0.10 for a period of 5 years following the date that the common shares are listed on the Exchange. In connection with the offering, the Agent also received a cash commission and an administration fee.
Following the closing of the offering, the Corporation also granted stock options to directors and officers exercisable to acquire up to an aggregate of 2,388,650 common shares and charitable options to the Toronto Foundation exercisable to acquire up to an aggregate of 238,865 common shares. The options are exercisable to acquire one common share at a price of either $0.05 or $0.10 at any time on or before February 23, 2031.
