VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 30, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
Premier Diversified Holdings Inc. ("Premier" or the "Company") (PDH.V) is pleased to announce the closing of the second tranche of its non-brokered private placement offering (the "Offering") of units of the Company ("Units") on April 29, 2019. The Offering was originally announced on February 4, 2019. The second tranche of the Offering was for $10,000. The total gross proceeds raised under the Offering totalled $385,000.
Each Unit consists of one common share ("Share") and one share purchase warrant ("Warrant") exercisable to purchase one additional Share at $0.05 for five years from the date of issue.
The Shares and Warrants will be subject to a hold period expiring on August 30, 2019. No finder's fees or commissions were paid in connection with the Offering.
The Company also announces that it has entered into a loan agreement with MPIC Fund I, LP ("MPIC") for a secured loan in the principal amount of USD$200,000 (the "Loan"). The Loan matures on April 27, 2020 and bears interest at a rate of 6% per annum. The Loan is secured with all of the present and after-acquired property of the Company. The Company is not issuing any securities, or paying any bonus, commission or finder's fees on the Loan. The Loan is repayable at any time without penalty. The Company expects to repay the financing upon receiving funds from some of its other investments.
As MPIC is a control person of Premier, the Loan constitutes a "related party transaction" within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Security holders in Special Transactions. The Loan has been determined to be exempt from the requirements to obtain a formal valuation or minority shareholder approval on the basis of sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 as the fair market value of the transaction is not more than 25% of the Company's market capitalization.
The Loan is subject to review by the TSX Venture Exchange.
Use of Proceeds
The net proceeds of the Offering and the Loan will be used for general working capital and may be used to fund the acquisition of an interest in a public or private entity.
