OTTAWA, March 28, 2019 /CNW/ - CannaRoyalty Corp. d/b/a Origin House (CSE: OH) (OTCQX: ORHOF) ("Origin House" or the "Company"), a North American cannabis products and brands company, today provided an update on the delisting of its 8% unsecured convertible debentures due July 12, 2021 (the "Debentures") from the Canadian Securities Exchange (the "Exchange").
Effective at market close on March 28, 2019, Origin House's convertible debentures (OH.DB) will be delisted from the Exchange.
The Company's common shares (OH) and warrants (OH.WT) will remain listed.
Pursuant to the indenture dated July 12, 2018 (the "Indenture"), Origin House may convert the outstanding Debentures into Common Shares at the conversion price of C$6.25 per Common Share in the event that the volume weighted average trading price of the Common Shares on the Canadian Securities Exchange (the "Exchange") is greater than C$9.00 for 10 consecutive trading days (a "Mandatory Conversion Event").
On February 26, 2019, in accordance with the terms of the Indenture, Origin House delivered notice ("Notice of Conversion") to registered holders of Debentures (the "Debenture holders") that as of close of markets on February 25, 2019, a Mandatory Conversion Event had occurred and that it was electing to exercise its rights under the Indenture to convert the outstanding Debentures. Accordingly, the Notice of Conversion provided that on March 28, 2019 (the "Mandatory Conversion Date"), the then-outstanding Debentures would be deemed to be surrendered for conversion into common shares of the Company ("Common Shares").
In order to facilitate the conversion, trading of the Debentures will be halted at 12:00pm EDT and delisted from the Exchange at market close March 28, 2019.
Since Notice of Conversion was provided on February 26, 2019, an additional C$6.6 million which is approximately 20% of the Debentures issued pursuant to the Indenture have been converted into equity on a voluntary basis, adding to the C$20.5 for a total of C$27.1 million which represents 82% of the total Debentures which were converted on a voluntary basis. Accordingly, on the Mandatory Conversion Date, the remaining 18% of all Debentures that remain outstanding will be deemed to be surrendered for conversion into Common Shares.
