Bee Vectoring Closes Private Placement
Mississauga, ON – March 28, 2018 – Bee Vectoring Technologies International Inc. (the “Company” or “BVT”) (TSXV: BEE) is pleased to announce the closing of its non-brokered private placement of 12,000,000 units of the Company at a price of $0.25 per unit for gross proceeds of C$3,000,000 (the “Offering”).
Each unit consists of one common share and one common share purchase warrant (“Unit”). Each common share purchase warrant (“Warrant”) entitles the holder to purchase one additional common share at a price of C$0.35 per common share until March 28, 2020.
“With this funding secured, we will be able to aggressively pursue our commercialization strategy over the course of 2018 and into 2019,” stated Ashish Malik, CEO of Bee Vectoring Technologies. “With the anticipated EPA approval of our technology and chemical compositions in 2018, having a strong balance sheet will be critical as we aim to capture market share on a global scale.”
BVT will apply the net proceeds of the Offering to support its commercialization plans for the US, continue projects that selectively expand its addressable market opportunity including developing additional crops and advancing registration activities in new countries, and for general working capital purposes.
There were no finders fees paid pursuant to the Offering.
All securities issued or issuable under the Offering are subject to a four-month hold period expiring on July 29, 2018 in addition to such other restrictions as may apply under applicable securities laws in jurisdictions outside of Canada.
Final closing of this Offering is subject to final acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange.
The Company also announces that it has granted a total of 600,000 incentive stock options to directors of the Company, subject to TSX Venture Exchange acceptance. Each option is exercisable to purchase one common share of the Company for five years at a price of C$0.25 per common share in accordance with the terms of the Company’s stock option plan.
