(108) in exchange for securities of the company. The Acquisition will result in the listing for trading of the Company on the Canadian Securities Exchange (the "CSE"). Upon successful completion of the Acquisition, the Company will cease operations as a mineral exploration company and will begin operating in the cannabis industry, as further detailed below.
10828416 Canada Inc.
108 is a Canadian corporation that owns the trade name Cannmax(TM), a hemp derived CBD (Cannabidiol) brand focused in the beverage sector, with an emphasis on overall health and wellness. The Company has the technology to infuse CBD into a variety of premium food and beverage products, including CBD infused teas, waters, non-alcoholic beverages, sports drinks, and a variety of other CBD finished goods. Upper Canyon Minerals Corp.
The Company exists under the laws of British Columbia, is a reporting issuer in British Columbia and Alberta and its shares are listed on the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange"). The Company is Vancouver based and was previously involved in mining exploration but has since elected to undergo a change of business due to current market conditions.
The Company and 108 have entered into the LOI, which sets out certain terms and conditions pursuant to which the proposed Acquisition will be completed whereby 108 will become a wholly owned subsidiary of Upper Canyon. The transaction terms outlined in the LOI are non-binding, and the Acquisition is subject to the parties successfully entering into a definitive agreement (the "Definitive Agreement") in respect of the Acquisition on or before January 14, 2019 or such other date as the Company and 108 may mutually agree.
The LOI also contemplates other material conditions precedent to the closing of the Acquisition (the "Closing"), including customary due diligence, receipt of all necessary regulatory, corporate and third party approvals, compliance with all applicable regulatory requirements, and all requisite board and shareholder approvals being obtained.
It is anticipated that the Closing will involve, among other things, the following steps, which may be amended if the parties mutually agree that such form would better satisfy their objective (including but not limited to, tax efficiency to the parties):
the shareholders of 108 will receive common shares in the capital of the Company (the "Upper Canyon Shares") in exchange for their shares in the capital of 108 (the "108 Shares") on the following basis:
Upper Canyon will issue (pro-rata) 30,000,000 Upper Canyon Shares to the shareholders of 108 Class A Shares; and
Upper Canyon will issue (pro-rata) 13,000,000 Upper Canyon Shares to the shareholders of 108 Class B Shares.
receipt of all director, shareholder and regulatory approvals relating to the Acquisition including, without limitation, the approval of the Exchange; and
each of the parties shall have executed, delivered and performed their respective covenants as outlined in the Definitive Agreement, and all representations and warranties of each party contained in the Definitive Agreement shall be true and correct at the time of Closing.
Certain of the Upper Canyon Shares issuable pursuant to the Acquisition may be subject to the escrow requirements of the Exchange and to hold periods as required by applicable securities laws. In addition, all Upper Canyon Shares will be subject to a voluntary hold period of thirty-six (36) months from the date of issuance and released on a 10% initial release and 15% releases each 6 months when completed (the "Hold Period"). All common shares in the capital of UCM held by insiders of UCM will be subject to the Hold Period.
The acquisition of 108 will constitute a change of business for Upper Canyon, and consequently (i) it will dispose of all of its remaining mineral property interests, (ii) it will seek to delist from the TSX Venture Exchange and re-list on the CSE, and (iii) it has requested that trading of its common shares on the TSXV be halted. Unless the transaction with 108 fails to close, the Company does not expect its shares will resume trading again until listing has been accepted by the CSE.
