/NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES/
MONTREAL, Feb. 14, 2023 /CNW/ - PyroGenesis Canada Inc. (http://pyrogenesis.com) (TSX: PYR) (NASDAQ: PYR) (FRA: 8PY) (the "Company" or "PyroGenesis") is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with Cormark Securities Inc., as lead agent (the "Lead Agent"), in connection with a reasonable "best efforts" private placement of a minimum of 5,000,000 units and a maximum of 10,000,000 units of the Company (the "Units") from treasury at a price of $1.00 per Unit (the "Issue Price") for gross proceeds of a minimum of $5,000,000 and a maximum of $10,000,000 (the "Offering").
Each Unit will consist of one (1) common share (each, a "Common Share") of the Company and one (1) warrant (each a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one (1) Common Share at price equal to $1.25 for a period of 24 months following the closing date of the Offering.
The net proceeds from the issue of the Units will be used for working capital and general corporate purposes.
The Offering is expected to close on or about February 23, 2023, or such other date as the Company and the Lead Agent may agree and is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals including the acceptance of the Toronto Stock Exchange.
Subject to compliance with applicable regulatory requirements and in accordance with National Instrument 45-106 – Prospectus Exemptions ("NI 45-106"), the Units will be offered for sale to purchasers resident in Canada and/or other qualifying jurisdictions pursuant to the listed issuer financing exemption under Part 5A of NI 45-106 (the "Listed Issuer Financing Exemption"). Because the Offering is being completed pursuant to the Listed Issuer Financing Exemption, the securities issued to Canadian resident subscribers in the Offering will not be subject to a hold period pursuant to applicable Canadian securities laws.
Concurrently with the Offering (and in addition to the Offering), the Company proposes to issue additional Units at the Issue Price to the Company's CEO, P. Peter Pascali, having an aggregate subscription price of $2.5 million or such greater amount as may be agreed to by Cormark.
There is an offering document related to the Offering that can be accessed under the Company's profile at www.sedar.com and www.pyrogenesis.com. Prospective investors should read this offering document before making an investment decision.
