CARESPAN ANNOUNCES WARRANT REPRICING
VANCOUVER, BC, Feb. 10, 2023 /CNW/ – CareSpan Health, Inc. (TSXV: CSPN) (“Company” or “CareSpan”), announces it is proposing to reduce the exercise price of 2,491,131 common share purchase warrants (the “Warrants“) issued on September 14, 2022 as per the closing of a private placement of units of the Company, as announced on September 14, 2022.
As issued, each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one common share of the Company (each, a “Warrant Share“) for a period of 60 months from the date of issue of the Warrants at an exercise price of $0.40 per Warrant Share. CareSpan intends to lower the exercise price of the Warrants from $0.40 to $0.15 per Warrant Share (the “Warrant Repricing“), in accordance with the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV“). No Warrants have been exercised to date.
The Warrant Repricing and the number of Warrants to be repriced is subject to the acceptance of the TSXV.
Certain individuals who are each considered a “related party” (as such term is defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101, Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101“)) hold the class of Warrants which are subject to the Warrant Repricing:
|Related Party||Warrants Held|
|Rembert de Villa (Chief Executive Officer)||260,700|
|William Bradford White||1,200,000|
|ICME International AG*||263,157|
* ICME International AG is a healthcare consulting organization based in Germany and Switzerland, which Holger Micheel-Sprenger (a director of the Company) is CEO and has an ownership stake in.
The Warrant Repricing constitutes a related party transaction as defined under MI 61-101. Such transaction is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as neither the fair market value of the Warrants held by the interested party, nor the consideration for the Warrants paid by such interested party, exceed 25% of the Company’s market capitalization.
Pursuant to the policies of the TSXV, because Rembert de Villa and Holger Micheel-Sprenger beneficially own, in the aggregate, more than 10% of the Warrants subject to the Warrant Repricing, the aggregate number of their Warrants that can be repriced will be limited to 10% of the total number of repriced Warrants.
