Toronto, Ontario, March 14, 2022, Patriot One Technologies Inc. (TSX: PAT) (OTCQX: PTOTF) (FRANKFURT: 0PL) (“Patriot One” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has priced its previously announced public offering (the “Offering”). The Company has entered into an Agency Agreement with Echelon Wealth Partners Inc. (“Echelon”) pursuant to which Echelon has agreed to act as the agent to conduct the Offering on a commercially reasonable best efforts basis. Echelon may appoint other registered investment dealers to form a selling group.
Pursuant to the Offering, the Company intends to issue up to 16,666,667 Units at a price of $0.60 per Unit for gross proceeds of up to $10,000,000.20. Each Unit will consist of a common share of the Company (each, a “Common Share”) and one common share purchase warrant (each, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant will be exercisable into one common share (each, a “Warrant Share”) for a period of 36 months from the closing of the Offering at an exercise price of $0.75, subject to adjustment in certain events. The Offering is expected to close on or about March 17, 2022 (the “Closing Date”) and is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary regulatory and stock exchange approvals, including the approval of the Toronto Stock Exchange (the “TSX”) and the applicable securities regulatory authorities.
The Company has granted the Agent an option (the “Over-Allotment Option”) to increase the size of the Offering by up to 9.9%, exercisable in whole or in part at any time, for a period of 30 days after and including the Closing Date (as defined herein).
The Units will be offered by way of a prospectus supplement to the Company’s short form base shelf prospectus dated January 5, 2022 (together, the “Prospectus”) to be filed in all provinces and territories of Canada except Québec. The Units may also be offered in the United States on a private placement basis pursuant to applicable exemptions from the registration requirements of the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “1933 Act”) and applicable state securities laws, and in other offshore jurisdictions provided that no prospectus filing or comparable obligation arises.
In connection with the Offering, the Company has agreed to issue or pay to the Agent: (i) a cash commission equal to 7.0% of the aggregate gross proceeds of the Offering (including any gross proceeds raised on exercise of the Over-Allotment Option), other than in respect of gross proceeds raised from purchasers on the president’s list, for which the Agent will receive a commission equal to 3.5%, and (ii) an aggregate number of agent’s warrants (the “Agent’s Warrants”) equal to 7.0% of the aggregate number of Units issued pursuant to the Offering (including any Units issued upon exercise of the Over-Allotment Option), other than in respect of Units sold to purchasers on the president’s list, for which the Agent will receive Agent’s Warrants equal to 3.5%. Each Agent’s Warrant will be exercisable into one common share (an “Agent’s Warrant Share”) at an exercise price of $0.60 for a period of 24 months from the Closing Date.
Patriot One intends to use the proceeds of the Offering for working capital and general corporate purposes.
The Company will apply to list the Common Shares, Warrant Shares, Agent’s Warrant Shares and Warrants issuable pursuant to the Offering on the TSX.
