WonderFi Technologies Inc.(NEO: WNDR) (OTCMKTS: WONDF) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with Canaccord Genuity Corp. on its own behalf and, if applicable, on behalf of a syndicate of underwriters (collectively the “Underwriters“) pursuant to which the Underwriters have agreed to purchase for resale, on a bought deal private placement basis, an aggregate of 10,257,000 units of the Company (the “Units“) at a price of C$1.95 per Unit (the “Issue Price“) for aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of C$20,001,150 (the “Offering“). In addition, the Company has granted the Underwriters an option (the “Over-Allotment Option“), to purchase up to an additional 2,565,000 Units at a price of C$1.95 per Unit, for a period of 7 days after and including the Closing Date (as herein defined).
Each Unit shall consist of one common share of the Company (a “Common Share“) and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant of the Company (each whole warrant, a “Warrant“). Each Warrant shall be exercisable to acquire one Common Share at an exercise price of C$2.55 for a period of 36 months from the Closing Date, subject to an acceleration right exercisable by the Company if at any time following the date that is four months and one day following the Closing Date, the daily volume weighted average trading price of the Common Shares on the NEO Exchange (the “Exchange“) is greater than C$4.00 per Common Share for the preceding 5 consecutive trading days, the Company shall have the right to accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants to a date that is at least 30 days following the date of a written notice to the holders thereof.
The closing of the Offering is expected to occur on or about October 26, 2021 (the “Closing Date“) and is subject to the completion of formal documentation and receipt of all regulatory approvals, including the approval of the Exchange.
The Units will be offered for sale on a private placement basis in certain provinces of Canada pursuant to applicable exemptions from the prospectus requirements of Canadian securities laws. The Units may also be sold in such jurisdictions outside of Canada as may be agreed upon by the Underwriters and the Company, in each case in accordance with applicable laws. The Units issued will be subject to a customary four-month hold period under Canadian securities laws.
The net proceeds of the Offering will be used to expedite execution of WonderFi’s product development roadmap and distribution of its products to a global audience, and for general working capital purposes.
The Company has agreed to pay the Underwriters: (i) a cash commission (the “Cash Commission“) equal to 7.0% of the aggregate gross proceeds of the Offering payable in cash and (ii) warrants (the “Broker Warrants“) exercisable at any time prior to the date that is 36 months from the closing of the Offering to acquire that number of Units which is equal to 7.0% of the aggregate number of Units issued pursuant to the Offering, at an exercise price equal to the Issue Price. The amount of Cash Commission and number of Broker Warrants will be reduced to 3.5% on any subscriptions arranged directly by the Company, up to $2,000,000.
