January 28th, 2015 – Toronto, Ontario – Matica Enterprises Inc. (MMJ – CSE) (39N – Frankfurt) (MQPXF – OTC) (“Matica” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the engagement of Jacob Securities Inc. (the “Agent“) to act as agent in connection with a “best-efforts” private placement offering (the “Offering“) of units of the Company (the “Units“) at a price of $0.08 per Unit for gross proceeds of up to $1,000,000. Each Unit will be comprised of one common share (a “Share“) and one Share purchase warrant of the Company (a “Warrant“). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one additional Share (a “Warrant Share”) at an exercise price of $0.15 per Warrant for a period of 36 months from the closing date.
As consideration for acting as agent, the Agent will receive a commission of 8% of the funds raised in connection with the Offering as well as such number of broker warrants (the “Broker Warrants“) as is equal to 8% of the Units issued in connection with the Offering. Each Broker Warrant shall entitle the holder thereof to acquire a Unit at an exercise price of $0.08 for a period of three years following the closing of the Offering.
The full Offering is expected to close on or around February 20, 2015 with multiple tranches occurring prior to the final closing. Upon closing, the proceeds of the Offering will be used for funding a milestone payment to THC Dispensaries, Inc. (“THCD”), a Nova Scotia applicant under the Marijuana for Medical Purposes Regulation (“MMPR”) that is in the final stages of completing the build on a state-of-the art marijuana growing facility with a “Ready To Build” status, as well as for the operational and general working capital purposes of Matica.
Further, Matica is pleased to advise that a portion funds raised in connection with the Offering will be used to fund the delivery and installation of an HVAC system at the THC medical marijuana growing facility. Upon completion of the installation of the HVAC system, Matica and THCD anticipate that the facility will be ready for a pre-license inspection by Health Canada.
Matica’s CEO, Boris Ziger states, “We anticipate the completion of our Nova Scotia “Ready To Build” MMPR facility shortly. Once complete, a final inspection from Health Canada will be carried out before the MMPR licence can be granted. Matica’s near term goal is to become a Licensed Producer of medical marijuana in Canada under the Federal Government’s new MMPR program and the recent engagement of Jacob Securities will help guide and finance Matica on our path to obtaining our MMPR licence.”
The Offering remains subject to certain conditions including the approval of the Canadian Securities Exchange and the entering into of a definitive agency agreement between the Company and the Agent on or before the date of the Offering. Additionally, all of the securities issued in connection with the Offering will be subject to resale restrictions under applicable Canadian securities laws.
