Deer Horn Announces Debt Conversion and Private Placement
Vancouver, BC, Canada, June 15, 2016 – Deer Horn Capital Inc. (CSE: DHC) (the “Company” or “Deer Horn”), announces that it will effect a debt conversion of $100,000 owing to suppliers, consultants and creditors, including some insiders. The debt conversion will consist of units ("Units") of the Company at a deemed price of $0.05 per unit (the "Debt Conversion").
Each Unit issued under the Debt Conversion will consist of one common share in the capital of Deer Horn and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to acquire one common share for a period of two years from the date of issuance at an exercise price of $0.10/share. The Debt Conversion will result in the issuance of 2,000,000 common shares and 1,000,000 warrants. The securities issued in connection with the Debt Conversion will be subject to a hold period expiring four months and one day from the date of issuance of such securities.
In addition to the settlement of debt, the Company announces that it intends to raise up to $300,000 by way of a nonbrokered private placement (the "Offering") of units ("Units") of the Company at a price of $0.05 per Unit. Subject to certain limitations discussed below, the Offering is open to all existing shareholders of the Company.
Each Unit will consist of one common share in the capital of Deer Horn and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will be exercisable into one common share for a period of two years at a price of $0.10/share.
The securities issued in connection with the Offering will be subject to a hold period expiring four months and one day from the date of issuance of such securities.
The Offering is being offered to existing shareholders of the Company in accordance with the provisions of the Canadian existing shareholder exemption (the “Existing Shareholder Exemption”), as well as to other investors pursuant to other available exemptions. The Existing Shareholder Exemption is available to shareholders residing in all Canadian provinces, other than Newfoundland and Labrador.
Shareholders of record of the Company as at June 14, 2016 (the “Record Date”) are eligible to participate under the Existing Shareholder Exemption. Any person who becomes a shareholder of the Company after the Record Date is not permitted to participate in the Offering using the Existing Shareholder Exemption but other exemptions may still be available to them. Shareholders who became shareholders after the Record Date should consult their professional advisors when completing their subscription form to ensure that they use the correct exemption.
There are conditions and restrictions when relying upon the Existing Shareholder Exemption, namely, the subscriber must: (a) be a shareholder of the Company on the Record Date, (b) be purchasing the Units as a principal and for their own account and not for any other party, and (c) may not subscribe to more than $15,000 of securities from the Company in any 12 month period. In the event that a subscriber wants to subscribe for more than the $15,000 value of securities then they may do so provided they have first received 'suitability advice' from a registered investment dealer. In this case subscribers will be asked to confirm the registered investment dealer's identity and employer.
The Offering is not subject to any minimum aggregate subscription. If subscriptions received for the Offering based on all available exemptions exceed the maximum Offering amount of $300,000, Units will be allocated pro rata amongst all subscribers qualifying under all available exemptions.
Any existing shareholders interested in participating in the Offering should contact the Company pursuant to the contact information set forth below.
On behalf of the board of directors of Deer Horn Capital Inc.
