As a result of the approval of the Resolutions and corresponding Debenture Amendments, the extraordinary meetings of the holders of the March Debentures and the November Debentures scheduled to be held on April 15, 2021, have been cancelled.
“We would like to thank all of our debentureholders for the overwhelming and continued support,” said Kellen O’Keefe, Flower One’s President & Interim CEO. “Reducing our debt and debt service obligations was a vital step towards a successful restructuring. With this completed, we can now continue to focus on the business, which continues to grow at an unprecedented pace.”
In accordance with the approval of the Resolutions by the holders of the March Debentures and November Debentures (together, the “Debentureholders”), the terms of the Debentures will be amended as follows:
(a) the Company will be provided with the right (the “New Conversion Right”) to convert 60% of the principal amount of the Debentures, plus accrued interest thereon, for units of the Company (each, a “Unit”) at a conversion price of CAD$0.35 per Unit. Each Unit will be comprised of one Common Share and 5/6 of a warrant (each, a “Warrant”). Each whole Warrant will be exercisable for one common share in the capital of the Company (each, a “Common Share”) at an exercise price of CAD$0.70 per Common Share for a period of 36 months, provided that if, at any time prior to the expiry date of the Warrants, the volume weighted average trading price of the Common Shares on the Canadian Securities Exchange (“CSE”), or other principal exchange on which the Common Shares are listed, is greater than CAD$1.05 for 20 consecutive trading days, the Company will be entitled to, within 10 business days of the occurrence of such event, deliver a notice to the holders of Warrants accelerating the expiry date of the Warrants to the date that is 30 days following the date of such notice. The New Conversion Right shall be exercisable by the Company upon notice to holders of the Debentures and such conversion will be effective on the date specified by the Company in the notice, which date will be not more than 60 days and not less than 20 days after the date of such notice;
(b) the maturity date of the Debentures will be extended to January 31, 2024;
(c) the Debentures will bear interest from the effective date of the Debenture Amendments at the rate of, (i) if paid in Canadian dollars, 4.0% per annum, and (ii) if paid in Common Shares, 6.0% per annum, with the applicable method of payment at the sole discretion of the Company;
(d) the conversion price for which each Common Share may be issued upon conversion of the Debentures will be reduced to CAD$0.385; and
(e) the current market price (i.e. volume weighted average price of the Common Shares on the CSE for the 20 consecutive trading days preceding the applicable date) for which the Company will have the right to force the conversion of Debentures will be reduced to equal to or greater than CAD$1.05.
In addition to the Debenture Amendments, pursuant to the Resolutions, the holders the Debentures have approved certain related matters, including:
(a) the waiver of the requirement for the Company to provide notice of exercise of the New Conversion Right (the “Notice Waiver”);
(b) approval of the delisting of the Debentures from the CSE in order to implement the Debenture Amendments (the “Debenture Delisting”); and
(c) approval of the listing of the amended Debentures on the CSE following the implementation of the Debenture Amendments (the “Amended Debenture Listing”).
The Company intends to complete the Debenture Delisting, implement the Debenture Amendments and exercise the New Conversion Right on April 19, 2021. As a result of the Notice Waiver, the New Conversion Right is expected to be effective on April 19, 2021. The Amended Debenture Listing is expected to occur April 20, 2021.
As a result of the exercise by the Company of the New Conversion Right, the Company will issue an aggregate of approximately 91,260,762 Units to Debentureholders, consisting of approximately 91,260,762 Common Shares and approximately 76,050,635 Warrants. Correspondingly, the total principal amount of March Debentures outstanding will be reduced from CAD$42,471,000 to CAD$16,988,400; and, the total principal amount of the November Debentures outstanding will be reduced from CAD$9,276,000 to CAD$3,710,400.
