Vancouver, British Columbia – June 11th, 2020 – AMPD Ventures Inc. (“AMPD” or the “Company”, CSE: AMPD; FRA: 2Q0) announces that it intends to complete a private placement and a shares for debt transaction.
The Company anticipates completing a private placement through which the Company is expected to issue up to 600,000 units (the “PP Units”) at a price of CAD $0.20 per unit for aggregate proceeds of CAD $120,000 (the “Private Placement”). Each PP Unit will be comprised of one common share (each, a “Share”) and one-half of one common share purchase warrant having an exercise price of CAD $0.30 per Share and a term of 12 months from the date of closing of the Private Placement.
Prior to the completion of the Private Placement, it is expected that Mr. Anthony Brown, CEO of the Company, will sell 600,000 Shares at CAD $0.20 per Share from his personal holdings, with the proceeds from the sale being used to acquire an equal number of PP Units under the Private Placement.
The Company intends to use the proceeds from the Private Placement for general working capital purposes.
The Company also anticipates completing a shares for debt transaction through which it will agree to settle $308,000 of indebtedness owed to a third party in exchange for 1,540,000 units (the “Debt Units”) at a price of CAD $0.20 per unit (the “Shares for Debt Transaction”). Each Debt Unit will be comprised of one Share and one common share purchase warrant having an exercise price of CAD $0.30 and a term of 24 months from the date of closing of the Shares for Debt Transaction.
Both transactions are subject to regulatory approval and all securities issued will be subject to a four-month hold period.
Mr. Brown’s participation in the Private Placement constitutes a “related party transaction” as defined in Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“61-101”).
In conducting their review and approval process with respect to the sale and issuance of 600,000 PP Units to Mr. Brown, disinterested directors of the Company (i.e., those other than Mr. Brown) have approved such sale and issuance of Units. The Private Placement is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of 61-101 as, among other things, neither the fair market value of the securities issued to related parties nor the consideration for such securities exceed 25% of the Company’s market capitalization.
Prior to the closing of the Private Placement and the Shares for Debt Transaction, Mr. Brown owns or controls 7.4% of the issued and outstanding Shares on a non-diluted basis and 13.58% on an as-converted basis. Following to the closing of the Private Placement and the Shares for Debt Transaction, Mr. Brown will own or controls 8.42% of the issued and outstanding Shares on a non-diluted basis and 14.25% on an as-converted basis.
A material change report in connection with the Private Placement will be filed less than 21 days before the closing of the Private Placement. The Company believes this shorter period is reasonable and necessary in the circumstances as the Company wishes to complete the Private Placement in a timely manner.
