VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / January 10, 2020 / AMPD Ventures Inc. (“AMPD” or the “Company”) (CSE:AMPD)(FRA:2Q0) announces that it intends to complete a private placement of up to 4,000,000 units (each, a “Unit“) at a price of CAD $0.2375 per Unit for gross proceeds of up to CAD $950,000.00 (the “Private Placement“).
Each Unit will be composed of one common share of the Company (the “Shares“) and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each such whole warrant, a “Warrant“). Each whole Warrant is exercisable to purchase one additional Share at a price of CAD $0.50 per Share for a period of 12 months from the date of closing of the Private Placement.
It is expected that all subscribers will rely on the exemption set out in Section 2.5 of National Instrument 45-106 to acquire the Units on a private placement basis.
Prior to the completion of the Private Placement, it is anticipated that certain subscribers that are shareholders of the Company will sell up to 3,626,000 Shares at CAD $0.25 per Share from their personal holdings , including the insiders described below, with the proceeds from such sale to be used to acquire an equal number of Units under the Private Placement.
The Private Placement is subject to regulatory approval, including Canadian Securities Exchange approval, and all securities sold pursuant to the Private Placement will be subject to a four-month hold period.
Anthony Brown, CEO of the Company, and Paul Mari, VP Operations of the Company, are expected to participate in the Private Placement and to each purchase 363,000 Units for an aggregate of 726,000 Units using the proceeds from the sale described above to fund the purchase. The participation in the Private Placement by the insiders constitutes a “related party transaction” as defined in Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“61-101”).
In conducting their review and approval process with respect to the sale and issuance of 726,000 Units to the insiders, disinterested directors of the Company (i.e., those other than the insiders participating in the Private Placement) will approve such sale and issuance of Units. The Private Placement is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of 61-101 as, among other things, neither the fair market value of the securities issued to related parties nor the consideration for such securities exceed 25% of the Company’s market capitalization.
Mr. Brown owns or controls 10.08% of the issued and outstanding Shares on a non-diluted basis and 15.62% on an as-converted basis. Following the closing of the Private Placement, Mr. Brown would own or control 8.52% of the issued and outstanding Share on a non-diluted basis and 14.61% on an as-converted basis, assuming Mr. Brown sells 363,000 Shares prior to the Private Placement, purchases 363,000 Units and the Company sells an aggregate of 4,000,000 Units.
Mr. Mari owns or controls 9.78% of the issued and outstanding Share on a non-diluted basis and 10.32% on an as-converted basis. Following the closing of the Private Placement, Mr. Mari would own or control 8.79% of the issued and outstanding Share on a non-diluted basis and 9.71% on an as-converted basis, assuming Mr. Mari sells 363,000 Shares prior to the Private Placement, purchases 363,000 Units and the Company sells an aggregate of 4,000,000 Units.
A material change report in connection with the Private Placement will be filed less than 21 days before the closing of the Private Placement. The Company believes this shorter period is reasonable and necessary in the circumstances as the Company wishes to complete the Private Placement in a timely manner.
This Private Placement replaces the private placement previously announced on November 26th, 2019, which was terminated by the Company.
The proceeds from the Private Placement are expected to be used for expansion, key staff hiring, and general working capital purposes.
