TORONTO, Jan. 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Aura Health Inc. (the “Company” or “Aura”) (CSE:BUZZ) is pleased to announce that due to increased demand it has upsized its previously announced non-brokered private placement (see press release dated January 7, 2019) from $1,500,000 to up to $1,650,000 (the “Offering”). The Offering is expected to close on or about January 10, 2019 (the “Closing Date”). The net proceeds from the Offering shall be used for general working capital and to advance the Company’s involvement in two Israeli cannabis companies, HolyCanna and CannabiSendak.
Aura intends to issue up to 11,000,000 units of the Company (each a “Unit” and collectively, the “Units”) at a price of $0.15 per Unit, for gross proceeds of $1,650,000. Each Unit is comprised of one common share in the capital of the Company (each a “Common Share”) and one-half of one common share purchase warrant, exercisable at $0.25 for a period of 24 months from the date of issuance.
In connection with the Offering, Aura expects to compensate finders who introduced subscribers to the Company (the “Placees”) by way of (i) an aggregate cash commission of 8% of the proceeds placed by the Placees and (ii) issuing that number of non-transferrable finders warrants equal to 8% of the number of Units subscribed to by the Placees (each a “Finder’s Warrant”). Each Finder’s Warrant will be exercisable to purchase one Common Share at an exercise price of $0.25 for a period of 24 months from the date of issuance.
All securities issued pursuant to the Offering will be subject to a hold period of four months plus one day from the Closing Date. The Offering remains subject to approval of the Canadian Securities Exchange. Aura expects that insiders of the Company will participate in the Offering.
