Amendment of Share Exchange Agreement
The Company further announced that it has entered into an amendment agreement (the “Amendment”) with Hashoff modifying the terms of the Share Exchange Agreement dated December 23, 2019 (the “Share Exchange Agreement”). The Share Exchange Agreement provided that the Company was to make post-closing payments up to USD $1,500,000 (the “Deferred Cash Payments”) pursuant to a 30 month deferred payment schedule, payable every 6 months following the closing of the acquisition.
Pursuant to the Amendment, Hashoff has agreed to postpone the effective date of the Deferred Cash Payments to January 1, 2021, such that the first payment will be payable on June 30, 2021, 6 months from the new effective date. The Deferred Cash Payments are dependent on Hashoff meeting the revenue targets set in the Share Exchange Agreement and failure to meet the revenue targets results in deferral and/or reduction of the payments.
In consideration for the postponement of the Deferred Cash Payments, the Company has agreed to reduce the attributable revenue targets by 20% for each 6 month period for the duration of the 30 month period, as set out below:
Exchange of Subscription Receipts
As previously announced, the Company completed a non-brokered private placement of subscription receipts (each, a “Subscription Receipt”) for gross proceeds of approximately $1.32 million (the “Offering”). The gross proceeds of the Offering were held in escrow by Fish Law Professional Corporation (the “Subscription Receipt Agent”) as subscription receipt agent, pursuant to the terms of a subscription receipt agreement dated March 23, 2020 (the “Subscription Receipt Agreement”) between the Company and the Subscription Receipt Agent, pending satisfaction of the Escrow Release Conditions (as defined in the Subscription Receipt Agreement), which included that all conditions precedent to the closing of the Qualifying Transaction be satisfied or waived. The Company satisfied the Escrow Release Conditions upon closing of the Qualifying Transaction such that each Subscription Receipt was exchanged, without further payment of consideration or any further action by the holders of Subscription Receipts, into one common share in the capital of the Company.
The Company paid finder’s fees of $5,267 in cash representing 7% of the gross proceeds raised by certain arm’s length finders in connection with the Offering.
