CHAR Technologies Announces Increase in Private Placement to CDN$4.6 Million


TORONTO, March 08, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CHAR Technologies Ltd. ("CHAR Technologies" or the “Company”) (TSX Venture Exchange: YES) is pleased to announce its intention, in response to investor demand, to increase the size of the $3 million non-brokered private placement (the "Offering") it announced on February 9, 2022.


The Company now intends to offer up to an additional 3,566,666 units at the offering price of CDN$0.45 per unit for additional gross proceeds of up to CDN$1,605,000. The total Offering will now amount to up to 10,233,333 units at a price of CDN$0.45 per unit for gross proceeds of up to CDN$4,605,000. The other terms of the Offering will remain unchanged.


Each unit will comprise one common share of the Company (“Share”) and one-half share purchase warrant (“Warrant”). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to acquire one Share for eighteen months after the closing of the Offering at a price of CDN$0.60.


The majority of the Offering is expected be raised from existing shareholders, and current and former directors, executive officers, business associates and employees, some of whom are insiders of the Company. Any participation by insiders in the Offering would constitute a "related party transaction" as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”). However, the Company expects such participation would be exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as neither the fair market value of the Units subscribed for by the insiders, nor the consideration for the Units paid by such insiders, would exceed 25% of the Company's market capitalization.


CHAR Technologies intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering to advance the development of both contracted and earlier stage projects and for general working capital needs.


The closing of the Offering is now expected to occur in the second half of March 2022, and is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange and the applicable securities regulatory authorities.


The Company may pay a finder’s fee equal to 6% of the value of select proceeds raised under the Financing plus 6% in broker warrants up to $2,450,000. The additional $2,155,000 raised would not include any commissions or broker warrants as it relates to funds raised by the Company from insiders, friends and family and existing shareholders.


The securities issued under the Offering, will be subject to a statutory hold period expiring four months and one day from the date of issuance of such securities.


This news release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy any of the securities in the United States. 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 state securities laws and may not be offered or sold within the United States or to U.S. Persons unless registered under the U.S. Securities Act and applicable state securities laws or an exemption from such registration is available.
