(CSE: HODL) (“Cypherpunk” or the “Company“) a sector leader for privacy-technology investments is pleased to announce that, further to its press release of December 23, 2020 it has closed an oversubscribed, non-brokered private placement offering (the “Offering“) through the issuance of 19,867,470 Units (“Units“) at a price of C$0.15 per Unit for gross proceeds of C$2,980,120. Each Unit is comprised of one common share (each a, “Common Share“) in the capital of the Company and one half of one whole Common Share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant“). Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional Common Share at an exercise price of C$0.25 until January 15, 2023.
The net proceeds and additional capital from the Offering will be used to continue investing as per the Company’s outlined investment strategy in cryptocurrencies, companies, technologies and protocols that enhance or protect privacy often in the blockchain ecosystem.
In connection with the Offering, certain eligible finders received cash commissions in the aggregate amount of $17,550. 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 security legislation. This Offering is subject to final approval of the Canadian Securities Exchange.
The Offering constituted a “related party transaction” as defined in Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Securityholders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101“), as insiders of the Company acquired 2,561,667 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 insiders does not exceed 25% of the market capitalization of the Company, as determined in accordance with MI 61-101.
