Tailwinds’ Take: Closing of this upsized financing will enable the Company to start executing on the strong demand they are seeing for their product. This is the final piece of the puzzle and Patriot One shares are well positioned for a big 2nd half and beyond.
Patriot One Technologies Inc. (the “Company”) (TSX VENTURE: PAT) is pleased to announce that the Special Warrant financing (the “Offering”) previously announced on June 14, 2017 has closed today.
Canaccord Genuity Corp. acted as lead agent and sole book runner under the Offering (the “Agent”). The Agent exercised the over-allotment option granted to it by the Company and, along with its syndicate member, Mackie Research Capital Corporation, sold 6,612,500 Special Warrants at a price of $0.70 per Special Warrant for gross proceeds of $4,628,750.
Each Special Warrant not previously exercised will be automatically exercised, without payment of additional consideration, on the earlier of: (i) the Qualification Deadline (as defined below); and (ii) the third business day after the Prospectus Qualification (as defined below). The holders of Special Warrants will receive, upon such automatic exercise, for no additional consideration, one unit of the Company (a “Unit”) for each Special Warrant held. Each Unit will be comprised of one common share of the Company and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one common share of the Company at an exercise price of $1.25 for a period of 36 months from the date of closing of the Offering.
The Company has agreed to use its best efforts to obtain a receipt for a final short form prospectus qualifying the distribution of the Units upon exercise of the Special Warrants (the “Prospectus Qualification”) on or before the date that is 45 days following closing of the Offering, being August 27, 2017 (the “Qualification Deadline”). If the Prospectus Qualification does not occur before the Qualification Deadline, each holder shall be entitled to receive, without payment of additional consideration, 1.05 Units per Special Warrant. Unless the Prospectus Qualification occurs, securities issued in connection with the Offering will be subject to a four month hold period from the date of issue.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering to fund international expansion, accelerate deployment of its technology and for general corporate purposes. Martin Cronin, the Company’s CEO, states, “I warmly welcome the closing of this financing and would like to thank our investors for the confidence they have shown in Patriot One. As we move into commercial roll out, we have customers from across the globe eagerly awaiting product. This financing will allow us to continue to execute on our plans to meet that demand.”
Further, the Company announces that it revised and refiled its Financial Statements and related MD&A for the quarter ended April 30, 2017. The refiling was necessitated by the engagement of the Company’s auditors to perform a review of the financial statements in connection with the Offering. The principle revisions were to remove the Notice of no Auditors Review, update the subsequent event note from June 29, 2017 to July 10, 2017 and to make non-material reclassifications on the balance sheets, statements of shareholders’ equity (deficiency) and statement of cash flow. Certain of the reclassifications on the financial statements also required revising in the MD&A.
