THIS RELEASE IS NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWS WIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES
Mississauga, ON – October 22, 2015 – Bee Vectoring Technologies International Inc. (the “Company” or “BEE”) (TSXV: BEE) is pleased to announce that it has completed the first tranche of a non-brokered private placement through the sale and issuance of 3,788,395 common shares (“Shares”) of the Company at a price of $0.27 per Share for gross proceeds of C$1,022,867 (the “Offering”).
BEE will apply the net proceeds of the Offering to the further development of the Company’s new state of the art manufacturing plant located in Mississauga, Ontario; EPA approvals; international patent registration of the BVT system, and for general working capital purposes.
The Company paid commissions to finders under the Offering consisting of cash fees of C$79,110 and the issue of 293,000 finder’s warrants. Each finder’s warrant entitles the holder to purchase one Share of the Company at a price of C$0.27 per Share until April 22, 2017.
All securities issued or issuable under the Offering are subject to a four-month hold period expiring on February 23, 2015 in addition to such other restrictions as may apply under applicable securities laws in jurisdictions outside of Canada.
BVT has developed and owns patent-pending bee vectoring technology (consisting of a proprietary tray dispenser containing a unique carrier agent) that is designed to harmlessly utilize commercially reared bumblebees as natural delivery mechanisms for a variety of powdered mixtures comprised of organic compounds that inhibit or eliminate common crop diseases, while at the same time stimulating and enhancing the same crops. This unique and proprietary process facilitates a targeted delivery of crop controls to flowering using the simple process of bee pollination to replace traditional crop spraying, resulting in better yield, organic product and less impact on the environment without the use of water or disruptions to labour.
On Behalf of the Board of Directors of Bee Vectoring Technologies International Inc.,
