VANCOUVER, BC, April 29, 2024 /CNW/ - Simply Better Brands Corp. (the "Company" of "SBBC") (TSXV: SBBC) (OTC: SBBCF) is pleased to announce that it has increased the size of its non-brokered private placement (the "Private Placement"), as described in the Company's news release dated April 17, 2024.

The Company now intends to issue up to 11,428,571 units of the Company (each, a "Unit") at a price of $0.35 per Unit for gross proceeds of up to $4,000,000 (from $2,000,000 previously). All currency in this news release is denominated in Canadian dollars.

"Based on strong initial demand, we are pleased to increase the size of the private placement to allow more interested parties the opportunity to participate," said SBBC Interim Chief Executive Officer and Chairman Kingsley Ward. "We anticipate participation in the placement from the majority of our Board and senior management reflecting confidence in our strategy and the growth trajectory of the TRUBARTM brand."

Each Unit will consist of one common share in the capital of the Company (a "Common Share") and one-half of one transferrable common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one additional common share in the capital of the Company (a "Warrant Share") for a period of 24 months from the date of issue at an exercise price of $0.45 per Warrant Share.

The Company intends to use the expanded net proceeds of the Private Placement to support the growth and continued market expansion of TRUBAR protein bars sold by its subsidiary, Tru Brands Inc., to a growing list of major retailers and through online channels across North America. Proceeds will also be used for general corporate and working capital purposes.

The Private Placement is being conducted pursuant to the listed issuer financing exemption under Part 5A of National Instrument 45-106 – Prospectus Exemptions. As a result, the securities issued under the Private Placement will not be subject to resale restrictions pursuant to applicable Canadian securities laws. Subject to applicable regulatory requirements, the Units will be offered for sale to purchasers' resident in Canada (other than Québec) and other qualifying jurisdictions.

Closing of the Private Placement is expected to occur on or about May 6, 2024, and is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary approvals, including the conditional approval from the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV"). The Company may engage one or more agents or finders in connection with the Private Placement and may pay such parties fees as may be agreed between the Company and such parties.
