April 23rd, 2020, VANCOUVER, B.C. – PROGRESSIVE PLANET SOLUTIONS INC. (PLAN-TSX:V) (“Progressive Planet”, “PLAN” or the “Company”), a developer of natural pozzolan properties in BC, Canada, wishes to announce that it intends to proceed with a financing totaling $360,000 of up to 12,000,000 units.
The financing consists of a non-brokered private placement of $360,000 for 12,000,000 units @ $0.03 per unit with each unit consisting of one share and one-half warrant. Each warrant entitles the holder to acquire one common share of the Corporation for a period of 12 months following the closing date, at an exercise price of $0.05 per warrant share, subject to an acceleration clause if the shares trade at $0.08 or more for a period of ten consecutive trading days following the completion of the four month holding period.
The financing is subject to individual minimum subscriptions of $3,000, but the overall financing is not otherwise subject to any minimum aggregate subscription.
Subject to certain limitations discussed below, the financing is open to all existing shareholders of the Company as at April 23, 2020, in reliance on the “Existing Shareholder Exemption” pursuant to BC Instrument 45-534. The aggregate acquisition cost to a subscriber under the Existing Shareholder Exemption cannot exceed $15,000 unless the subscriber has obtained advice from a registered investment dealer regarding the suitability of investment. In addition, other investors who qualify under available prospectus exemptions will be allowed to participate in the financing. Existing shareholders of the Company are directed to contact the Company for further information.
If subscriptions received for the financing based on all available exemptions exceed the maximum amount of $360,000, subscriptions will be accepted at the discretion of the Company on a pro rata basis. It is thus possible for a subscription received from a shareholder may not be accepted by the Company if the financing is over-subscribed.
Assuming the financing is fully subscribed, the Company intends to allocate the proceeds as follows: $210,000 for general working capital, $100,000 for equipment procurement, and $50,000 to retire debt supplied by a company owned by the controlling shareholder of the company, Mr. David Richardson.
Although the Company intends to use the proceeds of the financing as described above, the actual allocation of net proceeds may vary from the uses set forth above, depending on future operations or unforeseen events or opportunities. If the financing is not fully subscribed, the Company will apply the proceeds to the above uses in priority and in such proportions as the Company’s board of directors may determine is in the best interests of the Company.
As required by Temporary Relief Bulletin issued by the TSX Venture Exchange on April 8, 2020, the company wishes to state that the majority of the funds will not be used to pay management fees or investment relations fees. Additionally, in accordance with BC Instrument 45-534, the Company confirms there is no material fact or material change related to the Company which has not been generally disclosed.
There are currently 26,854,711 common shares issued and outstanding before giving effect to the current financing.
Finders’ fees may be payable on the private placement, subject to the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange. This offering is subject to TSX Venture Exchange acceptance. All securities issued under the Post-Consolidation financings are subject to a statutory four month hold period.
