08/04/2024 13:30

KELOWNA, BC / ACCESSWIRE / April 8, 2024 / Avant Brands Inc. (TSX:AVNT)(OTCQX:AVTBF)(FRA:1BU0) ("Avant" or the "Company"), a leading producer of innovative and award-winning cannabis products, today announces its intention to conduct a non-brokered private placement to secure up to $3,888,888 million in gross proceeds (the "Offering").

The Offering will consist of up to 45,751,623 units of the Company (the "Units") at a price of $0.085 per Unit. Each Unit will consist of one common share in the capital of the Company ("Common Share") and one Common Share purchase warrant (each Common Share purchase warrant, a "Warrant"). The Offering is expected to close on or about April 30, 2024, or on such other date or dates as the Company may determine. Each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one common share of the Company (a "Warrant Share") at a price of $0.12 for a period of 36 months following the closing date of the Offering. The gross proceeds from the Offering will be primarily used for general working capital purposes. The Company anticipates receiving a lead order totalling $600,000 from an existing strategic investor, reflecting their ongoing support and belief in Avant's strategic direction and potential for growth.

Any securities to be issued under the Offering will be subject to a hold period of four months and a day from the closing date of the Offering in accordance with the rules and policies of the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX"), and applicable Canadian securities laws and such other further restrictions as may apply under foreign securities laws. The Offering remains subject to the approval of the TSX.

It is anticipated that insiders of the Company may participate in the Offering. By virtue of their participation, the Offering would constitute a "related party transaction" under applicable securities laws. 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 deems reasonable in the circumstances so as to be able to avail itself of potential financing opportunities and complete the Offering in an expeditious manner. As the related party transaction will not exceed specified limits and will constitute a distribution of securities for cash, it is expected that neither a formal valuation nor minority shareholder approval will be required in connection with the Offering.

The securities offered have not been registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements. This news 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 in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
