ChroMedX Announces Closing of Private Placement
TORONTO, ONTARIO – June 19, 2017 – ChroMedX Corp. (the “Company”) (CSE: CHX, OTC: MNLIF, Frankfurt: EIY2) is pleased to announce that it has closed a non-brokered private placement
(the “Offering”) of 3,100,000 units (“Units”) at a price of $0.20 per Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of $620,000. Each Unit is comprised of one common share of the Company (a “Common Share”) and one Common Share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”). Each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to acquire one Common Share at a price of $0.30 for a period of eighteen (18) months from the closing of the Offering.
Certain eligible persons (the “Finders”) were paid a cash commission equal to 8% of the proceeds raised from subscribers introduced to the Company by such Finder, and also issued broker warrants (the “Broker Warrants”) equal to 8% of the securities purchased by such subscribers. Each Broker Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share at a price of $0.20 for a period of eighteen (18) months from the closing of the Offering.
All securities issued in connection with the Offering will be subject to a hold period of four months plus a day from the date of issuance and the resale rules of applicable securities legislation. The proceeds of the Offering will be used for developing prototypes, marketing and general working capital purposes.
The Offering constituted a related party transaction within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 (“MI 61-101”) as an insider of the Company subscribed for 100,000 Units. 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, as the fair market value of the participation in the Offering by the 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 in respect of the related party transaction at least 21 days before the closing Offering, which the Company deems reasonable in the circumstances in order to avail itself of the proceeds of the private placement and complete the Offering in an expeditious manner.
The Company also announces that it has granted an aggregate of 3,760,000 options to purchase common shares of the Company exercisable at a price of $0.30 per share and expiring on June 19, 2022, to certain directors, officers and consultants of the Company.
