MONTREAL, June 11, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Relevium Technologies Inc. (TSX.V: “RLV”, OTCQB: “RLLVF” and Frankfurt: “6BX”) (the “Company” or “Relevium”), is pleased to announce that it has closed a non-brokered private placement financing for a total of 15,350,000 units (the "Units") at $0.08 per Unit, for total gross proceeds of $1,228,000.
Each Unit consists of one common share of Relevium and one common share purchase warrant entitling the holder to purchase one additional common share at $0.12 per share for a period of one year from the date of the issue. Relevium has the right to accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants if, at any time, the average closing price of Relevium’s common shares is equal to or greater than $0.15 for 10 consecutive trading days. In the event of acceleration, the expiry date will be accelerated to a date that is 30 days after Relevium issues a news release announcing that it has elected to exercise this acceleration right.
Proceeds of the private placement will be used for general working capital purposes. In connection with the initial tranche of financing, Relevium paid finders a cash commission totaling $52,000 and issued a total of 320,000 finder's warrants and 320,000 compensation shares. Each finder's warrant has the same terms and conditions as the Warrants.
The securities issued under the financing will be subject to a hold period expiring on October 11, 2019 pursuant to applicable securities laws and the rules of the TSX Venture Exchange.
Directors and officers of the Company subscribed for 312,500 Units under the financing. As a result, the issuance of Units to directors and officers is considered to be a related party transaction subject to TSX Venture Exchange Policy 5.9 and Multilateral Instrument 61-101. Relevium is relying on exemptions from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements provided under sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(a) of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 on the basis that participation in the private placement by insiders did not exceed 25% of the fair market value of Relevium’s market capitalization.
