Radient Technologies Inc. RTI:CA is pleased to announce that it has entered into an underwriting agreement with a syndicate of underwriters led by Canaccord Genuity Corp.

Radient Technologies Inc. RTI:CA is pleased to announce that it has entered into an underwriting agreement with a syndicate of underwriters led by Canaccord Genuity Corp. (the “Lead Underwriter“) and including GMP Securities L.P. and Laurentian Bank Securities Inc. (together with the Lead Underwriter, the “Underwriters“) to increase the size of the previously announced bought deal offering to an offering of 18,000,000 units (the “Units“) of the Company at a price of $1.20 per Unit (the “Offering Price“) for aggregate gross proceeds of approximately $21,600,000 (the “Upsized Offering“). The Underwriters have been granted the option (the “Over-Allotment Option“) to purchase up to an additional 2,700,000 Units, exercisable in whole or in part, at any time up to 30 days following the closing of the Upsized Offering.

As previously announced, each Unit will consist of one common share in the capital of the Company (a “Common Share“) and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole common share purchase warrant, a “Warrant“). Each Warrant shall be exercisable to acquire one additional common share (a “Warrant Share“) of the Company for a period of two years from the closing date of the Upsized Offering at an exercise price of $1.50 per Warrant Share. If, at any time prior to the expiry date of the Warrants, the volume weighted average price of Radient’s common shares exceeds $2.25 for 20 consecutive trading days, the Company may deliver a notice to the holders of Warrants accelerating the expiry date of the Warrants to the date that is 30 days following the date of such notice (the “Accelerated Exercise Period“). Any unexercised Warrants shall automatically expire at the end of the Accelerated Exercise Period. The Warrants will not be listed for trading on the TSXV or any other public exchange.

The Units comprising the Upsized Offering will be offered by way of short form prospectus in Alberta, British Columbia and Ontario. The proceeds of the Upsized Offering and the Private Placement (described below) will be used to upgrade the Company’s main Edmonton extraction line for dedicated hemp extraction and purification, for additional capacity in North America and/or Europe and for general corporate and working capital purposes.

In connection with the Upsized Offering, the Company has agreed to pay to the Underwriters a cash commission equal to 6% of the gross proceeds from the Upsized Offering (the “Underwriters’ Fee“). In addition to the Underwriters’ Fee, the Company has agreed to issue to the Underwriters compensation options (the “Compensation Options“), exercisable at the Offering Price to purchase such number of Units as is equal to 6% of the aggregate number of Units sold.

In addition to the Upsized Offering, the Company is arranging a concurrent private placement of Units for additional aggregate gross proceeds of up to $15 million (the “Private Placement“). In connection with the Private Placement, the Company may pay commission to certain finders (the “Finders“) in cash, Units and/or Compensation Options, subject to the limitations set out in TSXV Policy 5.1 – Loans, Loan Bonuses, Finder’s Fees and Commissions. The Company may increase the size of the Private Placement to $25 million with the consent of the Lead Underwriter.

Closing of the Private Placement is subject to receipt of applicable regulatory approvals including approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. Securities issued under the Private Placement will be subject to a four month hold period which will expire four months plus a day from the date of closing of the Private Placement.

This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of the securities in any state of the United States in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful. The securities have not been registered under the 1933 Act, and may not be offered or sold in the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, U.S. persons (as such terms are defined in Regulation S under the 1933 Act) absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements.
