Vancouver, BC – TheNewswire – July 4, 2023 – BEACN Wizardry & Magic Inc. (TSXV:BECN) (“BEACN” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it intends to proceed with a non-brokered private placement (the “Offering”) of up to 5,000,000 units of the Company (the “Units”) at a price of C$0.20 per Unit for gross proceeds to the Company of up to $1,000,000.
Each Unit will be comprised of one common share (a “Share”) and one non-transferable common share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one additional Share for a period of three years from the closing of the Offering for $0.45.
At the option of the investor and with the approval of the Company, the Share may be designated an Eligible Business Corporation Share (an “EBC Share”) and if so designated the investor will be eligible for a 30% tax credit. If elected, there will be restrictions on the sale of the EBC Shares for a period of 5 years. The Warrant will not be EBC eligible.
“As BEACN continues to achieve its goals in product development and technological innovation, it is building B2B partnerships to help fuel its next stage of growth in the content creation and online broadcast industry. The proceeds of this financing will help BEACN build out and support these B2B sales channels both through marketing and strategic inventory purchases, as well as support the ongoing development of new products.” noted Craig Fraser, CEO of BEACN.
Directors and officers of BEACN and shareholders owning more than 10% of the Company’s Common Shares may participate in the Offering for a yet to be determined amount. Any such participation in the Offering will constitute a “related party transaction” as defined in Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“61-101”). The Offering will be exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of 61-101 as neither the fair market value of the securities issued to related parties nor the consideration for such securities will exceed 25% of the Company’s market capitalization. A material change report will be filed in connection with the participation of the directors and officers in the Offering potentially less than 21 days in advance of the closing of the Offering, which the Company deems reasonable in the circumstances so as to be able to avail itself of potential financing opportunities and to complete the Offering in an expeditious manner.
The proceeds from the Offering will be used to (i) accelerate the Company’s sales program, (ii) support the development and inventory purchases of new products, (iii) improve on shipping and logistics in new strategic markets and (iv) for general working capital.
The closing of the Offering is expected to occur in mid-July 2023 and is subject to receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals including the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV”). Finder’s fees of up to 7% in cash and 7% in warrants (a “Finder’s Warrant”) will be paid to eligible parties at the discretion of the Company. Each Finder’s Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one additional Share for a period of two years from the closing of the Offering for $0.20. Except for EBC Shares, all of the securities issued with respect to the Offering will be subject to a hold period of four months and one day in accordance with applicable securities laws. EBC Shares will be subject to a hold period of four months and one day in accordance with applicable securities laws and in addition will be subject to restrictions on sale for a period of five years. The Company may close the Offering in more than one tranche.
