Las Vegas, Nevada and Toronto, Ontario – March 18, 2021 – Flower One Holdings Inc. (“Flower One” or the “Company”) (CSE: FONE)(OTCQX: FLOOF) (FSE: F11), a leading cannabis cultivator and producer in Nevada, is pleased to announce the closing on March 17, 2021 of the third tranche of its 2021 convertible debenture offering.
“I’m truly inspired every day by the amazing work our team does at Flower One,” said Salpy Boyajian, Flower One’s Executive Vice President and Chairwoman of the Board. “The overall progress and accomplishments we have made over the last several months are a direct reflection of the strength of Flower One.”
The company has closed the final tranche of its previously announced convertible debenture unit financing (the “Offering”), raising aggregate gross proceeds of CAD$2,550,383.99 (USD$2,008,302.88) (the “ Third Tranche”). The third tranche of the Offering includes the issuance of an additional 2,546 convertible debenture units (each, a “ Debenture Unit”) at a price of CAD$1,000 per Debenture Unit. Together with the first and second tranche of the Offering, the Company has issued a total of 24,118 Debenture Units, for aggregate gross proceeds of approximately CAD$24,134,219.89 (USD$19,004,519.88), from a number of strategic investors including JW Asset Management.
Each Debenture Unit consists of one 9.0% unsecured convertible debenture of the Company (each a “Convertible Debenture”) having a maturity date of three years from the date of issuance (the “ Maturity Date”) and 1,923 common share purchase warrants (each a “Warrant” and collectively, the “Warrants”), representing a 50% warrant coverage, with each whole Warrant entitling the holder thereof to purchase one common share of the Company at an exercise price of CAD$0.39 at any time up to 36 months from the date of issuance. In the event that the common shares of the Company (each, a “ Common Share” and collectively, the “Common Shares”) trade on the Canadian Securities Exchange (the “CSE”) at a closing price equal to or greater than CAD$0.90 for a period of twenty (20) consecutive trading days, the Company may implement an accelerated expiry date of the Warrants by giving notice to the holders of the Warrants of the accelerated expiry date and, thereafter, any unexercised Warrants will expire on the date that is ninety (90) days following the delivery of such notice.
The principal amount of each Convertible Debenture (the “Principal Amount”) will be convertible, for no additional consideration, into Common Shares (each a “Conversion Share” and collectively, the “Conversion Shares”) at the option of the holder at any time prior to the earlier of: (i) the close of business on the Maturity Date, and (ii) the business day immediately preceding the date specified by the Company for conversion of the Convertible Debentures upon the Common Shares trading on the CSE at a price greater than CAD$0.50 for a period of ten (10) consecutive trading days at a conversion price equal to CAD$0.26 (the “Conversion Price”).
The Company may force the conversion of the principal amount of the then outstanding Convertible Debentures at the Conversion Price should the trading price of the Common Shares on the CSE be greater than $0.50 for a period of ten (10) consecutive trading days. The Principal Amount and the interest accrued thereon will otherwise be payable in cash on the Maturity Date, and have a default interest rate of an additional 3%, for a total aggregate default interest rate of 12%.
The Convertible Debentures issued under the Third Tranche also provide the holders thereof with the option to receive the early repayment of their Convertible Debentures (the “Early Repayment Right”) in the event that the previously announced amendments (the “Amendments”) to the Company’s debenture indenture dated March 28, 2019 (the “ March Debenture Indenture”) are not completed on or before June 15, 2021. The Early Repayment Right will terminate and be of no further force and effect upon holders representing 66 2/3% of the unsecured convertible debentures issued pursuant to the March Debenture Indenture agreeing with the Company to vote in favour of the Amendments.
In connection with the Offering, the Company will pay finder’s fees to certain finders as follows: (i) payment in cash in amounts equal to between 2% and 4% of the aggregate gross proceeds from investors introduced to the Company by such finders; and (ii) units consisting of one share of common stock and one half warrant or, in one case, just warrants to acquire common stock, ranging from 4% to 6% of the aggregate gross proceeds.
The net proceeds received by the Company from the Offering, including the Third Tranche, are intended to be used for working capital, previous debt obligations, general corporate purposes, along with regular maintenance and improvements to the facility.
