Jasper Commerce Announces Unit Financing
VANCOUVER, BC, Jan. 26, 2023 /CNW/ - Jasper Commerce Inc. (TSXV: JPIM) ("Jasper" or the "Company"), a leading provider of Product Information Management ("PIM") solutions, announces a non-brokered financing consisting of units for gross aggregate proceeds of up to $500,000 plus an over-allotment option of up to 50% at the sole discretion of the Company (the "Offering"). The net proceeds will be used for general working capital and business purposes.
Each Unit is comprised of: (i) $1,000 principal amount of 12% secured convertible debentures ("Convertible Debentures") issued by the Company with a maturity date ("Maturity Date") of five years from the date of issuance; and (ii) 20,000 common share purchase warrants of the Company (each, a "Warrant").
Each Convertible Debenture is convertible at the holder's option into fully-paid common shares of the Company ("Common Shares") at any time prior to the Maturity Date at a conversion price of $0.05 per Common Share, being a ratio of 20,000 Common Shares per $1,000 principal amount of Convertible Debentures. If the volume weighted average price of the Common Shares for any 60 day period prior to the Maturity Date equals or exceeds $0.35 per Common Share then any outstanding Convertible Debentures at that time automatically will be converted into Common Shares at $0.05 per Common Share effective the 60th day of such period.
The Convertible Debentures will be secured obligations of the Company and will have a floating charge over the Company's assets pursuant to a general security agreement to be entered into prior to closing but will be subordinate to existing secured indebtedness of the Company.
Each Warrant is exercisable into one Common Share of the Company at an exercise price of $0.10 for a period of 48 months following the closing date of the Offering.
Closing of the Offering is intended to occur in one or more tranches with the first tranche expected to close on or around February 7, 2023. Closing is subject to approval by the TSX Venture Exchange.
Certain subscribers under the Offering may be "related parties" to the Company and, accordingly, the Offering may be deemed to include "related party transactions" as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101").
Other than subscription agreements to be entered into between such related parties and the Company relating to the issuance of the Units pursuant to the Offering and the securities to be issued thereunder, the Company does not anticipate entering into any agreement with an interested party or a joint actor with an interested party in connection with the Offering.
The Offering is expected to be exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 (pursuant to subsections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a)) as the fair market value of the related party transactions are expected to be not more than 25% of the market capitalization of the Company.
This press release is not an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the securities in the United States or in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation, or sale would be unlawful prior to qualification or registration under the securities laws of such jurisdiction. The securities being offered have not been, nor will they be, registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and such securities may not be offered or sold within the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, U.S. persons absent registration or an applicable exemption from U.S. registration requirements and applicable U.S. state securities laws.
