TORONTO, July 21, 2021 /CNW/ - OV2 Investment 1 Inc. (the "Corporation") (TSXV: OVO.P), a capital pool company pursuant to Policy 2.4 (the "CPC Policy") of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange"), is pleased to announce that further to its press release dated April 29, 2021, the Corporation has closed its non-brokered private placement of 8,659,000 subscription receipts (each, a "Subscription Receipt") at a price of $0.25 per Subscription Receipt for gross proceeds of $2,164,750 (the "OV2 Financing").
The gross proceeds of the OV2 Financing (the "Escrowed Proceeds") are being held in escrow on behalf of the subscribers of the Subscription Receipts by TSX Trust Company (the "Subscription Receipt Agent"), pursuant to the terms of a subscription receipt agreement (the "Subscription Receipt Agreement") dated July 21, 2021 between the Corporation and the Subscription Receipt Agent. Immediately prior to closing of the previously announced qualifying transaction (the "Transaction") with EasTower Group, Inc. ("EasTower"), each Subscription Receipt will be exchanged for one common share of the Corporation (post-consolidation) and one-half of one common share purchase warrant of the Corporation (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"), for no additional consideration. Each Warrant will be convertible into one resulting issuer share at an exercise price of $0.40 per resulting issuer share for a period of 24 months from the issuance thereof. Upon release of the Escrowed Proceeds pursuant to the Subscription Receipt Agreement, a finder's fee will be paid to certain brokers in connection with the OV2 Financing equal to 8% of the gross proceeds payable in cash and broker warrants equivalent to 8% of the number of Subscription Receipts issued. Each broker warrant shall be exercisable for one resulting issuer share at an exercise price of $0.40 per resulting issuer share for a period of 24 months from the issuance thereof. For more information on the terms and conditions of the Transaction, please see the Corporation's press release dated April 29, 2021.
In connection with the Transaction, EasTower recently closed a private offering of units (each unit, a "Unit" and collectively, the "Units") for gross proceeds of $877,500 at a price per Unit of $0.25 (the "EasTower Financing" and together with the OV2 Financing, the "Financings"). Each Unit consists of one EasTower common share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant of EasTower (each whole warrant, an "EasTower Warrant"). Each EasTower Warrant will be exercisable for one EasTower common share at an exercise price of $0.40 per EasTower common share for a period of 24 months from the issuance thereof. A finder's fee is payable in connection with the EasTower Financing equal to 8% of the gross proceeds payable in cash and broker warrants equivalent to 8% of the number of Units issued. Each broker warrant is exercisable for one EasTower common share at an exercise price of $0.40 per EasTower common share for a period of 24 months from the issuance thereof.
The net proceeds of the Financings will be used to fund the continued expansion of EasTower's business, provide working capital, and for general and administrative expenses.
