Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - August 29, 2019) - Gunpowder Capital Corp., (CSE: GPC), (CSE: GPC.PR.A), (OTCQB: GNPWF), (FSE: YS6N), ("Gunpowder" or the "Corporation") announced today that it has closed the third tranche of its non-brokered private placement raise. In total Two Million, One Hundred and Thirty-Four Thousand Nine Hundred Dollars ("$2,134,900.00") CDN was raised via the issuance of Forty-Two Million, Six Hundred and Ninety-Eight Thousand ("42,698,000") Units.
Holders of both the Corporation's Class - A and Class - B Preferred Shares were granted the ability to participate in this offering. The Corporation accepted ownership of One Hundred and Ninety Thousand, Four Hundred and Ninety ("190,490") Preferred Shares as payment (the "Private Placement-in-Kind") via the Preferred Share shareholders whom participated in this Private Placement-in-Kind offering. The Corporation is currently in the process of retiring the 190,490 Preferred Shares it received through the Private Placement-in-Kind. Each Preferred Share shareholder who participated in the Private Placement-in-Kind received Two Hundred ("200") Units of the Corporation for every one ("1") Preferred Share they used as payment to acquire the Units. Once the 190,490 Preferred Shares are retired, the Corporation will save approximately One Hundred and Fifty Thousand Dollars ("$150,000.00") CDN per annum, as the Corporation will no longer need to pay the quarterly dividend on the 190,490 Preferred Shares.
All Units in this offering consisted of one Common Share in the capital of the Corporation and one Common Share Purchase Warrant ("Warrant"), with each Warrant entitling the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share of the Corporation at an exercise price of Seven and a Half Cents ("$0.075") CDN per Common Share for a period of 24 months from the closing of the financing, subject to accelerated expiry in the event the closing price of the Corporation's Common Shares close at or greater than Ten Cents ("$0.10") CDN for ten consecutive trading days. All Common Shares issued in connection with this placement will be subject to a four month plus one day hold period under applicable Canadian securities laws. All proceeds from the financing will be used for general working capital purposes which includes the continued expansion of MethodeVerte Inc., the Corporation's fully owned Cryptocurrency Mining and Technology development division.
