TORONTO, ONTARIO, November 19, 2021 – Carbon Streaming Corporation (NEO: NETZ) (OTCPink: OFSTF) (FSE: M2Q) (“Carbon Streaming” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the upcoming automatic conversion of the Company’s previously issued special warrants (the “Special Warrants”) effective as of November 20, 2021.
- Special Warrants will convert into underlying common shares and warrants on November 20, 2021.
- The newly issued warrants will be listed on the Neo Exchange Inc. (the “NEO Exchange”) effective November 24, 2021 under the symbol NETZ.WT.B.
- No action is required by holders of Special Warrants to receive their underlying Common Shares and July Warrants (as defined below).
“The funds from this placement continue to provide Carbon Streaming with significant cash resources to deploy in execution of its investment strategy,” noted Justin Cochrane, Chief Executive Officer of Carbon Streaming. “We are excited to begin scaling up and diversifying our investment portfolio and building up our near-term cash flow profile,” Mr. Cochrane added.
About Special Warrants
The Special Warrants were originally issued effective on July 19, 2021 pursuant to a non-brokered private placement of 104,901,256 Special Warrants at a price of US$1.00 per Special Warrant for aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of approximately US$104.9 million. Under the terms of their governing indenture, each Special Warrant will be automatically exercised for no additional consideration into one Unit (as defined below) of the Company, subject to adjustment in certain events, on the date that is four months and one day following the closing date, being November 20, 2021. Each unit (a “Unit”) underlying a Special Warrant is comprised of one common share in the capital of the Company (each, a “Common Share”) and one Common Share purchase warrant of the Company (each, a “July Warrant”). Each July Warrant will expire on September 19, 2026, being sixty-two (62) months from the date of issuance.
Pursuant to the Company’s prior consolidation of all of its securities on a 1-for-5 basis which took effect on October 22, 2021 (the “Consolidation”), each Special Warrant became exercisable to acquire one post-Consolidation Common Share and July Warrant such that the total of Special Warrants was reduced to approximately 20,980,250. As a result of the Consolidation of the Special Warrants, the underlying July Warrants will now be exercisable to purchase one post-Consolidation Common Share at an exercise price of US$7.50 per share. Copies of the indentures and supplemental indentures governing the Special Warrants and the July Warrants are available on the Company’s profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
In connection with the deemed exercise of the Special Warrants, the Company is also pleased to announce receipt of final approval for listing of the July Warrants on the NEO Exchange. The July Warrants are expected to commence trading on the NEO Exchange as of 9:30 a.m. EST on November 24, 2021 under the symbol “NETZ.WT.B”, which will allow warrant holders an opportunity to deposit their July Warrants with their brokers prior to trading commencing. The Company’s Common Shares and the Company’s existing listed Common Share purchase warrants will continue to trade on the NEO Exchange under the tickers “NETZ” and “NETZ.WT”, respectively.
Given the deemed exercise of the Special Warrants in accordance with their governing indenture, the Company will withdraw its previously filed prospectus to qualify the distribution of the underlying Common Shares and July Warrants, as it is no longer necessary.
Holders of Special Warrants are not required to pay any additional money or consideration, nor take any additional steps or action, in order to receive the Common Shares and July Warrants comprising the Units underlying the Special Warrants. Holders who received their Special Warrants through the DealMaker platform should be able to access their Common Shares and July Warrants statements on Monday November 22, 2021 through the same portal. For additional information, holders of Special Warrants with questions are encouraged to visit the Shareholder Information page of the Company’s website, where additional information as well as answers to “Frequently Asked Questions” is available regarding the automatic deemed exercise of the Special Warrants and the issuance of the underlying Common Shares and July Warrants.
