HydroGraph Announces $2.0 Million Private Placement
Not for distribution to U.S. newswire services or dissemination in the United States. All dollar amounts are in United States dollars unless otherwise indicated.
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, October 30, 2023 — HydroGraph Clean Power Inc. (CSE: HG) (OTCQB: HGCPF) (the “Company” or “HydroGraph”), a commercial manufacturer of high-quality graphene and other nanomaterials, is pleased to announce a non-brokered private placement of units of the Company (the “Units”). The Units are being offered in US dollars and Canadian dollars at the respective prices of US$0.074 and C$0.100 for aggregate gross proceeds of up to $2,000,000 (the “Offering”).
Each Unit will consist of one common share in the capital of the Company (each a “Common Share”) and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant of the Company (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share (each a “Warrant Share”) at a price of C$0.180 per Warrant Share for a period of 24 months after the closing date of the Offering.
”This is an exciting stage of growth we are entering, expanding our application development activities and growing HydroGraph’s customer pipeline. Financing commitments by new investors, such as UAE-based Gulf Cryo LLC (www.gulfcryo.com), a major industrial gas supplier, and management will support these key developments and allow us to take advantage of the graphene market opportunity ahead of us,” commented Bob Wowk, Chief Financial Officer of HydroGraph.
After the statutory hold period of four months and a day from the closing date, each Warrant will be subject to an acceleration right (the “Warrant Acceleration Right“) exercisable by the Company, if on any ten consecutive trading days the daily volume weighted average trading price of the Common Shares on the Canadian Securities Exchange is C$0.180 or greater per Common Share. If the Company exercises its Warrant Acceleration Right, the new expiry date of the Warrants will be the 30th day following the notice of such exercise.
Net proceeds from the Offering will be used for application development, business development and general working capital purposes. The Company may pay certain finders a fee in connection with the sale of Units to purchasers introduced to the Company by such finders.
The Offering is expected to close on or about November 10, 2023, or in any other date or dates as the Company may determine. Closing of the Offering is subject to receipt of all regulatory approvals. The Units issued under the Offering, and the underlying securities, will be subject to certain resale restrictions, such as a hold period of four months and a day from the closing date.
This news release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any sale of any securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful. The securities have not been and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “1933 Act”), or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the “United States” or to “U.S. persons” (as such terms are defined in Regulation S under the 1933 Act) unless registered under the 1933 Act and applicable state securities laws, or an exemption from such registration requirements is available.
