LEAF Announces Closing of $23 Million Public Offering of Subscription Receipts
Vancouver, BC – LEAF Mobile Inc. (TSX.V : LEAF) is pleased to announce that it has completed its public offering of subscription receipts (the “Subscription Receipts”) for aggregate gross proceeds of $23 million including the full exercise of the over-allotment option by the Co-Lead Agents (as defined below) (the “Offering”), previously announced on November 11, 2020 and January 25, 2021. The Offering was qualified by LEAF’s final short form prospectus dated January 22, 2021 (the “Prospectus”), available under its SEDAR profile online at www.sedar.com.
The Offering was completed through a syndicate of agents including Eight Capital and Haywood Securities Inc. as co-lead agents (collectively the “Co-Lead Agents”), Paradigm Capital Inc. and Scotia Capital Inc. on a best-efforts basis.
The Subscription Receipts are governed by a subscription receipt agreement (the “Subscription Receipt Agreement“) entered into among LEAF, the Co-Lead Agents (on behalf of the Agents) and Odyssey Trust Company. Each Subscription Receipt will entitle the holder thereof to receive, upon satisfaction of certain release and issuance conditions as described in the Prospectus, one common share of LEAF (a “LEAF Share”). Proceeds from the Offering were deposited into escrow with Odyssey Trust Company, as escrow agent, under the Subscription Receipt Agreement, and will not be released until aforementioned release and issuance conditions are satisfied.
LEAF intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering primarily to fund the cash consideration payable under the previously announced acquisition by the Company of East Side Games Inc. (the “Acquisition”) and as detailed in the Prospectus.
The Acquisition is anticipated to close on or about February 5, 2021 and is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary prior approvals. Upon completion of the Acquisition, the release conditions of the Offering will have been met and the Subscription Receipts will be converted into LEAF Shares as described in the Prospectus.
The Prospectus contains important information relating to the Subscription Receipts, the Offering, and the Acquisition, and has been filed in each province of Canada other than Quebec, and may be subject to amendment. A copy of the Prospectus can be obtained under the Company’s profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
