TORONTO, Nov. 25, 2020 — ARHT Media Inc. (“ARHT” or the “Company”) (TSXV:ART), announces that it intends to extend the maturity date of its 2020 Series A Debentures (the “Debentures“) until December 30, 2021 (the “New Maturity Date“).
On January 30, 2020, the Company completed the private placement of Debentures for total gross proceeds of $1.6 million, representing an aggregate of $1,744,000 principal amount of Debentures. The Debentures are secured by way of a general security agreement made in favour of a collateral agent acting as agent for all of the holders of the Debentures, granting a security interest in substantially all of the Company’s assets.
The Debentures were issued at a price of $0.9175 for each $1 of principal amount subscribed for, representing a 12% discount to the Debentures’ principal amount over a nine-month period. On October 30, 2020, the maturity date of the Debentures was extended to December 30, 2020 and in conjunction with the extension of the maturity date, the principal amount of the Debentures was calculated on an 11-month period rather than a nine-month period.
The Company proposes to extend the maturity date of the Debentures to the New Maturity date and make a corresponding increase to the principal amount of each Debenture, as though the Debentures had been issued at a price of $0.8929 for each $1 of principal amount outstanding on December 30, 2020, representing a 12% discount to the Debentures’ principal amount over the additional 12-month period.
Other than the amendment providing for the New Maturity Date (which is subject to receipt of the consent of holders of 66.66% of the principal amount of Debentures, and TSX Venture Exchange approval), the other terms of the Debentures remain unchanged.
In consideration for Debentureholders agreeing to the New Maturity Date, the Company proposes to issue to each Debentureholder one Warrant (a “Warrant“) for every $1 of principal amount of Debenture. Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one common share of the Company at an exercise price of $0.31 per share for a period expiring on the New Maturity Date.
