Toronto and Munich-based Wayland Group (formerly Maricann) (CSE:WAYL) (OTCQB:MRRCF) raised $57 million in October in a bought deal by underwriters led by Canaccord Genuity Corp.
The underwriters initially purchased 30 million units in early October at $1.65 per unit for gross proceeds of $50 million. They then bought an over-allotment later in October of 4.5 million units at the same price. The total raised was $57.6 million.
Because units can be exercised into 1.5 common shares, the deal could eventually add an additional 15 million shares, for a total of 45 million shares.
Specifically, each unit consists of one common share and one-half common share purchase warrant. Each warrant can be used to buy one common share for three years at $2.15 per common share. If the average trading price exceeds $3.25 for 10 consecutive trading days, Wayland can accelerate the expiry date.
The company will use the net proceeds for acquisitions, working capital and corporate purposes.
The securities offered were not and may not be offered or sold in the United States.
