Baylin Technologies Inc. (TSX:BYL) (the "Company" or "Baylin") is pleased to announce that it has filed a prospectus supplement to a short form base shelf prospectus dated November 16, 2017 (the "Prospectus Supplement") in connection with its previously announced bought deal offering of 7,340,426 common shares (the "Common Shares") of the Company at a price of C$2.35 per Common Share (the "Offering Price") for aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of C$17,250,001 (the "Offering"). The Company has granted the Underwriters an over-allotment option to purchase up to an additional 1,101,064 Common Shares at the Offering Price, exercisable in whole or in part at any time for a period ending 30 days from the closing of the Offering. In the event the over-allotment option is exercised in full, the aggregate gross proceeds of the Offering will be C$19,837,502. The Prospectus Supplement describes in detail the terms of the Offering and has been filed with securities regulators in each of the provinces and territories of Canada.
The Common Shares may also be offered in those jurisdictions outside of Canada which are agreed to by the Company and the Underwriters, where the Common Shares can be issued on a private placement basis, exempt from any prospectus, registration or other similar requirements.
The Offering is expected to close on or about November 28, 2017 and is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary approvals, including the approval of the Toronto Stock Exchange.
It is anticipated that certain directors and officers of the Company will purchase up to 2,806,966 Common Shares pursuant to the Offering. By virtue of the participation of such insiders, the Offering would constitute a "related party transaction" under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). The Company expects to release a material change report including details with respect to the related party transaction less than 21 days prior to the closing of the Offering, which the Company deemed reasonable in the circumstances so as to be able to avail itself of potential financing opportunities and complete the Offering in an expeditious manner. The Company is relying on exemptions from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101.
The securities have not been, and will not be, registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "U.S. Securities Act"), or any U.S. state securities laws, and may not be offered or sold in the United States without registration under the U.S. Securities Act and all applicable state securities laws or compliance with the requirements of an applicable exemption therefrom. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy securities in the United States, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
