VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Feb. 12, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SHARC International Systems Inc. (CSE: SHRC) (FSE: IWIA) (OTCQB: INTWF) ("SHARC" or the “Company”) announced today a non-brokered private placement for the sale of up to 1,700 convertible debenture units (the “Units”) at a price of $1,000 per Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of up to $1,700,000 (the “Offering”). Each Unit will consist of: (i) $1,000 principal amount of 2.0% unsecured convertible debentures (the “Debentures”); and (ii) 5,000 warrants (the “Warrants”). The Company will use the net proceeds of the Offering for the investment in sales and marketing activity for the Piranha system with a focus on developing Western North America and general working capital purposes.

The Offering will include an up to 15% over-allotment option, exercisable by the Company, which equates to an additional 255 Units and $255,000 (“Greenshoe”). If fully exercised, the total proceeds of the Offering will be an aggregate of 1,955 Units and gross proceeds of $1,955,000. 

The Debentures will bear interest from their issue date at 2.0% per annum calculated and payable semi-annually in arrears on June 30 and December 31 of each year commencing on June 30, 2020 and will mature three years following the closing of the Offering (the “Maturity Date”). The Debentures are unsecured and will rank pari passu in right of payment of principal and interest with all the existing and future unsecured indebtedness of the Company.

The Debentures, (including any accrued and unpaid interest) will be convertible at the option of the holder into common shares of the Company (the “Common Shares”) at any time after the first anniversary of the Closing Date (as defined below) and prior to the close of business on the last business day prior to the Maturity Date at a conversion price of $0.10 per Common Share.

Each Warrant will be exercisable to acquire one Common Share (a “Warrant Share”) at an exercise price of $0.20 per Warrant Share for a period of three years following the Closing Date.

The Units will be eligible for RRSP, RESP, RRIF, TFSA and DPSP accounts. The Debentures and the Warrants comprising each Unit, and any Common Shares issuable upon conversion or exercise thereof, will be subject to a statutory hold period lasting four months and one day following the issue date of the applicable Unit.

Closing of the Offering is expected to occur on or about February 19, 2020 (the “Closing Date”). The Offering 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 Canadian Securities Exchange.

The securities being offered have not been, nor will they be, registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, U.S. persons absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements.
