TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 03/27/15
Matica Enterprises Inc. (CSE:MMJ)(FRANKFURT:39N)(OTC PINK:MQPXF) ("Matica" or the "Company") announces that its agent, Jacob Securities Inc., has closed on 3,964,500 units in the second tranche of the brokered private placement offering at a price of eight cents per unit for gross proceeds of $317,960. Each unit comprises one common share and one share purchase warrant of the Company. Each warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one additional share at an exercise price of 15 cents per warrant for a period of 36 months from the closing date.
Matica is currently completing the previously announced Plan Of Arrangement (Announced on January 5th 2015), following which, Matica will focus solely on becoming the next publicly traded MMPR company through the nearly completed Nova Scotia based, THC Dispensaries Inc. ("THCD") marijuana production facility with a "Ready To Build" letter from Health Canada. Completion of the facility is anticipated shortly followed by a final inspection by Health Canada before being granted a MMPR license.
Matica Enterprises CEO, Boris Ziger states, "Now that we have closed our financing and all necessary funds are in place, Matica will commence an extensive marketing initiative throughout North America to coincide with our anticipated MMPR facility completion. As well, our DTC electronic trading status is now active for US investors to own shares in Matica for the first time. Once our facility is complete, a final inspection from Health Canada will be carried out before the MMPR licence can be granted. Matica's near term goal is to become the next publically traded Licensed Producer of medical marijuana in Canada under the Federal Government's new MMPR program."
As consideration for acting as lead agent, Jacob Securities will receive a commission up to 8 per cent of funds secured by Jacob pursuant to the financing, and compensation warrants to purchase a number of units of Matica up to 8 per cent of the units shares sold pursuant to the financing, exercisable at the same issue price of the units for a period of 36 months from the closing of the financing.
