TORONTO, Oct. 25, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Li-Metal Corp. (the “Company” or the “Resulting Issuer”) is pleased to announce that the reverse takeover transaction (the “RTO”) pursuant to which 2555663 Ontario Limited, doing business as Li-Metal (“Li-Metal”) acquired Eurotin Inc. (“Eurotin”) has been completed. The post-closing entity know as Li-Metal Corp. (following the RTO, the Resulting Issuer) will continue to carry on the business of Li-Metal and will have its shares listed on the Canadian Securities Exchange (the “CSE”) under the symbol “LIM”.
Under the terms of an amalgamation agreement previously entered into between Eurotin, Li-Metal and 2848302 Ontario Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Eurotin (“Subco”), the RTO was completed by way of a three-cornered amalgamation under the laws of the Province of Ontario. Pursuant to the RTO, Subco amalgamated with Li-Metal, with Li-Metal surviving as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Eurotin, known as Li-Metal North America Inc. In addition, Eurotin underwent a 125 to 1 share consolidation and changed its name to “Li-Metal Corp.”. Immediately following the closing of the RTO, the Resulting Issuer and Li-Metal North America Inc. amalgamated by way of a short-form amalgamation under the laws of the Province of Ontario, with the Resulting Issuer surviving the amalgamation. The Resulting Issuer now holds all of Li-Metal’s assets and conducts the business of Li-Metal under the Li-Metal name.
In connection with the RTO, on May 6, 2021, Li-Metal completed an offering (the “Debenture Offering”) of US$3,000,000 senior secured convertible debentures (the “Debentures”). Pursuant to the terms of the Debentures and immediately prior to the RTO, for each US$1.00 then owing, each Debenture automatically converted into one common share of the Resulting Issuer (each, a “Resulting Issuer Share”) and one warrant to purchase one Resulting Issuer Share (each, a “Resulting Issuer Warrant”), with each Resulting Issuer Warrant exercisable at a price of US$1.50 (or Canadian dollar equivalent) for a period of two years following closing of the RTO and the exercise of which warrants can be accelerated by the Resulting Issuer once the Resulting Issuer Shares trade at or above US$3.50 (or Canadian dollar equivalent) for five consecutive business days.
Also in connection with the RTO, on September 7, 2021, Li-Metal completed a private placement of 7,500,000 subscription receipts (the “Subscription Receipts”) at a price of US$1.00 per Subscription Receipt for aggregate gross proceeds of US$7,500,000 (the “Equity Financing”, and together with the Debenture Offering, the “Financings”). Upon the completion of the RTO, each Subscription Receipt automatically converted into one unit of the Resulting Issuer (a “Unit”), each Unit consisting of one Resulting Issuer Share and one Resulting Issuer Warrant.
Additional terms of the RTO were previously disclosed in the press releases of Eurotin dated March 24, 2021, May 27, 2021 and July 14, 2021, which are available under the Company’s SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com.
