LI-METAL ANNOUNCES ACCELERATION OF WARRANTS AND ISSUES COMMON SHARES IN SATISFACTION OF INTEREST PAYMENT ON SENIOR SECURED CONVERTIBLE DEBENTURE
Li-Metal Corp. will be accelerating the expiry of all of its outstanding warrants, pursuant to the terms of the warrant indenture dated Sept. 7, 2021.
On Oct. 25, 2021, Li-Metal issued a total of 10.5 million warrants with an expiry date of Oct. 25, 2023, which are exercisable at the Canadian-dollar equivalent of $1.50 (U.S.), according to the U.S./Canadian exchange rate as reported by the Bank of Canada on the close of business the day before the closing of the reverse takeover transaction involving 2555663 Ontario Ltd. and Eurotin Inc. The exchange rate was determined by the company to be $1.2357 per $1.00 (U.S.). Pursuant to the warrant indenture and as previously disclosed, the expiry date of the warrants would accelerate if the volume-weighted average price (VWAP) of the company's common shares on the Canadian Securities Exchange was equal to or greater than the Canadian-dollar equivalent of $3.50 (U.S.) (calculated according to the exchange rate) over a period of five consecutive trading days on the CSE. Within 10 business days following such five-day period, Li-Metal would accelerate the expiry date of such warrants by issuing a press release.
As the VWAP of the company's common shares has exceeded the Canadian-dollar equivalent of $3.50 (U.S.) over a period of five consecutive trading days, Li-Metal now announces that the expiry date for the warrants will be Dec. 23, 2021. The company will also provide written notice of such expiry date directly to all warrant holders. If all warrants issued by the company are exercised, the company will receive aggregate proceeds of $19,462,275 in connection with the exercise of such warrants.
To exercise the abovementioned warrants, holders of warrants are required to courier the following to the company's transfer agent on or before Dec. 23, 2021, at 5 p.m. ET:
- A duly completed and executed exercise form (hard copy), which can be found on the investor relations page of Li-Metal's website;
- The original certificate or direct registration system (DRS) advice representing the warrants being exercised by such holder; and
- Payment of the aggregate exercise price ($1.85355 per warrant) made payable to "Li-Metal Corp." by way of certified cheque, money order or bank draft.
Warrant holders should stipulate whether they would like to receive a certificate or DRS advice representing the common shares to be issued upon exercise of their warrants. All documentation should be couriered to: TSX Trust Company, attention: corporate actions, 301-100 Adelaide St. West, Toronto, Ont., M5H 4H1.
Common share issuance in satisfaction of interest payment
Li-Metal also announces that, further to the news release published by the company on Oct. 25, 2021, the company has issued 141,367 common shares to six prior debenture holders in satisfaction of interest owed by the company on senior secured convertible debentures in the amount of $141,369.87 (U.S.). No fractional common shares were issued in satisfaction of the interest payment. The common shares issued in satisfaction of interest payable under the debentures are subject to four-month hold period resale restrictions under Canadian securities laws. The issuance of the common shares in lieu of cash was subject to the terms and conditions of the debentures as well as the receipt of any requisite approvals, including, without limitation, the approval of the CSE.
