Toronto, Ontario, July 29, 2021 – Danavation Technologies Corp. (CSE:DVN) (“Danavation” or the “Company“), a Canadian-based Internet of Things (IoT) technology company and provider of micro e-paper displays, is pleased to announce that it has entered into an engagement agreement with iA Private Wealth Inc. (the “Agent”) with respect to the best efforts offering (the “Offering”) of up to CAD$3,000,000 aggregate principal amount, 8.0% unsecured convertible debentures of the Company (the “Debentures”). The Agent has the option to increase the size of the Offering by $500,000 under the same terms. The Debentures will be placed on a brokered private placement basis at a price of CAD$1,000 per CAD$1,000 of principal.
“With the additional funds, we have sufficient capital to execute on all aspects of our current business plan, including further expanding our market reach and business development efforts,” noted Danavation’s Founder & CEO, John Ricci.
The Debentures are set to mature 36 months following the Closing (as defined below) (the “Maturity Date”) and will bear interest at a rate of 8.0% per annum, from the date of issue, payable in cash quarterly. The Debentures, including the common shares of the Company (the “Common Shares”) issuable upon conversion, will be subject to a four-month hold period from the date of Closing and subject to all necessary regulatory approvals, including the approval of the Canadian Securities Exchange.
The Debentures will be convertible at the holder’s option into fully-paid Common Shares at any time prior to the Maturity Date and the business day immediately preceding the date fixed for redemption (as described below) at a conversion price equal to CAD$0.45 per Common Share (the “Conversion Price”). Upon conversion, the holder will receive in cash accrued and unpaid interest on the principal amount that is the subject of the conversion for the period from and including the date of the latest interest payment date to, but excluding, the date of conversion. The Conversion Price shall be subject to standard anti-dilutive provisions. The Company will have the right to force conversion at the Conversion Price if the Common Shares trade at a volume weighted average price of CAD$0.75 or greater for 20 consecutive trading days. Further, beginning 12 months after the Closing (as defined below) the Company shall have the right to pre-pay the Debentures, in whole or in part, at par plus accrued and unpaid interest, subject to a prepayment penalty equal to 5% of the principal amount if redeemed between 12 months and 24 months after Closing and equal to 2% of the principal amount if redeemed later than 24 months after Closing and before the Maturity Date.
The closing of the Offering is expected to occur on or about August 13, 2021 (the “Closing”) and is subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary approvals, including the approval of the Canadian Securities Exchange.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering for general working capital purposes.
