Edmonton, Alberta–(Newsfile Corp. – December 31, 2021) – Radient Technologies Inc. (TSXV: RTI) (“Radient” or the “Company”), a commercial manufacturer of diverse, novel and high-quality cannabis extracts and packaged products, announces that it has upsized and closed its previously announced non-brokered private placement financing (the “Offering”). For more information about the Offering, please see the Company’s press release dated December 15, 2021, which is available under the Company’s profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com. Pursuant to the Offering, the Company has issued 20,880,714 units (the “Units”) at a price of $0.06 per Unit for gross proceeds of $1,252,842. Each Unit consists of one common share of the Company and one common share purchase warrant, with each warrant entitling the holder to purchase one common share of the Company at $0.10 per share at any time prior to June 30, 2023. The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering for growth initiatives and general corporate purposes. No finder’s fees were paid in connection with the Offering.
Certain insiders of the Company have directly or indirectly purchased an aggregate of 12,014,988 Units pursuant to the Offering for gross proceeds of $720,899. Such participation is considered a “related party transaction” as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”). The Company is relying on the exemptions from the valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 contained in sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101, respectively, as the fair market value of the participation in the private placement by insiders does not exceed 25% of the market capitalization of the Company, as determined in accordance with MI 61-101. The Company did not file a material change report at least 21 days prior to the closing of the Offering as details of the participation by insiders were not settled until shortly prior to closing, and the Company wished to close the Offering on an expedited basis.
All securities issued in connection with the Offering are subject to a statutory hold period expiring on May 1, 2022. Completion of the Offering remains subject to receipt of final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
Shares for Debt Settlements
The Company is also pleased to announce that it has entered into agreements to settle $281,500 of its outstanding cash indebtedness owed to various third-party creditors by way of the issuance of 4,691,668 common shares of the Company at an effective price per share of $0.06 (the “Debt Settlement”).
