VANCOUVER, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Legible Inc. (CSE: READ) (FSE: D0T) ("Legible” or the “Company”), announced today that it intends to complete a non-brokered private placement offering of debenture units (“Debenture Units”) at a price of $10,000 per Debenture Unit, for gross proceeds of up to $1,000,000 (the “Private Placement”). Each Debenture Unit will consist of: (i) a 15% unsecured convertible debenture of the Company (“Debenture”) in the principal amount of $10,000; and (b) 50,000 common share purchase warrants (“Warrant”).
The Debentures will mature on the date that is three (3) years following the closing (the “Maturity Date”) and are convertible at the holder’s option, at any time, after the date that is four months and one day from the closing, into common shares of the Company (“Common Shares”) at a conversion price of $0.10 per share. The Debentures will bear interest at a rate of fifteen percent (15%) per annum calculated annually not in advance. The full amount of the interest owing until the date that is two (2) years following the closing shall be pre-paid on the closing by the issuance of 20,000 Common Shares (at a deemed price of $0.15 per share) per Debenture Unit, and thereafter interest shall be due and payable in cash on the earlier of: (i) the Maturity Date; and (ii) in the event of conversion of the Debentures prior to the Maturity Date of the entire principal amount, 30 days following the conversion date.
Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one Common Share at a price of $0.15 for a period of two (2) years from closing; provided that if, at any time, after the date that is four months and one day following the closing, the volume weighted average trading price of the common shares on the Canadian Securities Exchange (the “CSE”) is at least $0.40 per share for a period of 5 consecutive trading days, the expiry date of the Warrants may be accelerated by the Company to a date that is not less than 21 days after the date that notice of such acceleration is provided to the Warrant holders, which notice may be by way of general press release.
The closing of the Private Placement is expected to occur on or about June 8, 2022, and is subject to regulatory approval, including approval of the CSE. For further details on the Private Placement, please contact the Company. All securities issued in connection with the Private Placement will be subject to a hold period of four months from the date of closing. The Company intends to use the proceeds from the Private Placement for general working capital purposes.
A finder’s fee of up to 8% of the gross proceeds of the Private Placement may be paid in cash on all or any portion of the Private Placement. Additionally, finder’s warrants may be issued in an amount up to 8% of the number of Debenture Units sold under the Private Placement. Each finder’s warrant may be exercised to acquire one common share at a price of $0.10 per share for a period of two (2) years from the closing; provided that if, at any time, after the date that is four months and one day following the closing, the volume weighted average trading price of the common shares on the CSE is at least $0.40 per share for a period of 5 consecutive trading days, the expiry date of the finder’s warrants may be accelerated by the Company to a date that is not less than 21 days after the date that notice of such acceleration is provided to the finder’s warrant holders, which notice may be by way of general press release.
