NOT FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES OR THROUGH U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 06, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sharc International Systems Inc. (CSE: SHRC) (FSE: IWIA) (OTCQB: INTWF) ("SHARC" or "the Company") is pleased to announce announced today that, further to its news release dated March 26, 2019, it closed the first tranche of convertible debenture units (“Units”) for gross proceeds of $1,330,000 pursuant to a non-brokered private placement (the “Offering”) of Units.
Each Unit consists of: (i) $1,000 principal amount of 8.0% unsecured convertible debentures (the “Debentures”); and (ii) 1,563 warrants (each a “Warrant”). The Company will use the net proceeds of the Offering for development of the Company’s projects in the United Kingdom, and for general and working capital purposes.
The Debentures bear interest from their issue date at 8.0% per annum, payable semi-annually in arrears on June 30, 2019, and thereafter semi-annually on the last day of June and December in each year and mature three years following the date of issuance (the “Maturity Date”). The Debentures are unsecured, and rank pari passu in right of payment of principal and interest with all the existing and future unsecured indebtedness of the Company.
The Debentures (including any accrued and unpaid interest) are convertible at the option of the holder into common shares of the Company (the “Common Shares”) at any time after the first anniversary of the date of issuance and prior 5:00 p.m. (Pacific time) on the last business day prior to the Maturity Date at a conversion price of $0.32 per Common Share (the “Conversion Price”).
If after May 3, 2020 the closing price of the Common Shares on the Canadian Securities Exchange (the “CSE”) is $0.64 or greater for 20 consecutive trading days, the Company may, at its option, convert the Debentures (including any accrued and unpaid interest) into Common Shares at the Conversion Price by disseminating a press, in which case the Debentures shall be converted into Common Shares on the second business day after dissemination of such press release.
Each Warrant is exercisable to acquire one Common Share (a “Warrant Share”) at an exercise price of $0.40 per Warrant Share for a period of three years following the date of issuance.
In connection with the Offering, the Company paid eligible finders a cash fee of $79,800 and issued 80 compensation warrants to eligible finders (the “Compensation Warrants”). Each Compensation Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one Unit of the Company at an exercise price of $1,000 for a period of three years following the date of issuance. The Units issuable upon exercise of the Compensation Warrants are on the same terms as the Units sold under the Offering.
The Debentures and the Warrants comprising each Unit, and any Common Shares issuable upon conversion or exercise thereof, are subject to a statutory four month and one day hold period until September 4, 2019.
The securities being offered have not been, nor will they be, registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, U.S. persons absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of the securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
The Company also announces that the Board of Directors has granted a total of 800,000 stock options (the "Options") to Directors, Officers, Employees and Consultants. A total of 700,000 options will be exercisable until December 18, 2019 at an exercise price of $0.26 per stock option. A total of 100,000 will be exercisable for a period of twenty-four months at an exercise price of $0.26 per stock option.
