Vancouver, B.C., February 12, 2021 – Extreme Vehicle Battery Technologies Corp. (“EV Battery Tech” or the “Company”) (CSE: ACDC), a leading battery technology company, is pleased to announce that it has completed an oversubscribed non-brokered private placement for gross proceeds of approximately $3,000,000 (the “Private Placement”).
“The interest for this private placement was overwhelming,” commented President and CEO Bryson Goodwin. “The new sophisticated investors, both local and international and the uptake by many of the existing shareholders and by EV Battery Tech stakeholders led to a significantly oversubscribed private placement.”
“We did our best to include as many subscriptions as possible, but unfortunately the vast majority of the subscriptions that we received over the originally allotted $2.5M had to be denied,” continued Mr. Goodwin. “We see this as a positive problem to have and hope to soon launch a new private placement.”
The Company issued 15,602,800 units (each a “Unit”) at a price of $0.20 per Unit. Each Unit consists of one common share (a “Common Share”) of the Company and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant is be exercisable into one Common Share at an exercise price of $0.50 for a period of three years from the issuance date, subject to acceleration, at the Company’s discretion, in the event that the Common Shares trade at a price on the Canadian Securities Exchange of greater than $0.75 per Common Share for a period of ten consecutive trading days. All securities issued in connection with the Private Placement are subject to a four-month-and-one day hold period under applicable securities laws.
A finder’s fee was paid in connection with the Placement to Canaccord Genuity Corp. (the “Finder”) that consisted of fees in the aggregate amount of 602,800 Units, representing an aggregate commission of 8% of the Units sold to investors introduced by Finder.
The Company intends to use the proceeds from the Private Placement for product development, research and development, and for general working capital.
“With this latest round, our balance sheet will be in great shape and we will be focusing on developing our various products announced this year” said Mr. Goodwin. “Due to the oversubscription, we hope to announce another capital raise soon to fast track our product development.”
On behalf of the Company,
Chief Executive Officer.
