CALGARY, Alberta and TORONTO, April 26, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Magnetic North Acquisition Corp. (TSXV: MNC) (“Magnetic North” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce a first closing of the Company’s previously announced non-brokered private placement of units (the “Financing”) for gross proceeds of up to approximately $1,000,008.00 CAD. The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the Financing for general corporate purposes, and some investments.
On April 22, 2022, the Company completed the issuance of 37,898 of Series A Preferred Share units (“Units“) at $9.50 per Unit for gross proceeds of $360,031.00 pursuant to the first closing of the Financing. The Company paid finders fees of $20,973.03 related to this closing. Each Unit was comprised of one Series A Preferred Share (“Series A Preferred Shares”) and one Series A Preferred Share purchase warrant (“Warrant”).
Each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one additional Series A Preferred Share at a price of $10.00 per share during the period ending on the fifth anniversary of the closing date of the Financing. The Warrants have an acceleration provision whereby, in the event the 10 day weighted average trading price of the Series A Preferred Shares on the TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV”) (or such other stock exchange on which the Series A Preferred Shares may then be listed and posted for trading) exceeds $20.00 at any time, the Corporation has the right to accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants to 30 days from the date of issuance of a news release of the Company announcing the accelerated exercise period. The Series A Preferred Shares are listed on the TSXV and trade under the symbol “MNC.PR.A”. The Warrants will not be listed on the TSXV.
The Units are being offered in Canadian jurisdictions to “accredited investors” pursuant to the exemption from the prospectus requirement under Section 2.3 of National Instrument 45-106 – Prospectus Exemptions and other exemptions from the prospectus requirements as determined by the Company. Completion of the Financing will be subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals including the approval of the TSXV.
