CubicFarm Systems Corp. Announces Closing of Private Placement

May 24, 2024 | Press Releases

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 23, 2024 – CubicFarm® Systems Corp. (“CubicFarms” or the “Company”) (TSXV: CUB), a leading local chain agricultural technology company, today announces a non-brokered private placement (the “Private Placement”) of units (the “Units”) of the Company.

Further to the Company’s price reservation form dated April 2, 2024, and the Company’s notice letter dated April 3, 2024, the TSX Venture Exchange conditionally accepted the Company’s proposed private placement of up to 5,000,000 Units of the Company. Each Unit consists of one common share of the Company (a “Common Share“) and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (the “Warrants“). Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to acquire one Common Share of the Company at an exercise price of C$0.25 (the “Exercise Price“) per Common Share for a period of 24 months from the date of issuance.

On May 23, 2024, pursuant to the Private Placement, the Company has issued 2,875,000 Units at a price of C$0.20 (the “Offering Price“) per Unit for gross proceeds of C$575,000. The Company intends to use the proceeds of the Private Placement for general working capital.

The securities offered in the Private Placement are subject to a four month and a day transfer restriction from the date of issuance expiring on September 24, 2024, in addition to such other restrictions as may apply under applicable securities laws of jurisdictions outside Canada.

Pursuant to the Private Placement, John de Jonge (the “Investor”) is an insider of the Company by virtue of being the interim Chief Executive Officer of the Company. The Investor participated in the Private Placement by purchasing 500,000 Units and, accordingly, this purchase constitutes a related party transaction as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Securityholders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”). The Company is exempt from the formal valuation and minority approval requirement under MI 61-101 as the fair market value of the insider’s participation in the Private Placement does not exceed more than 25% of the market capitalization of the Company, as set forth in Sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101. The Company has not filed a material change report more than twenty-one (21) days before the closing date of the Private Placement, as the details of the Private Placement were not finalized until May 23, 2024, and the Company wished to close the Private Placement as soon as practicable.

Completion of the Private Placement remains subject to the receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

Neither TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
