Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - December 23, 2022) - Tenet Fintech Group Inc. (CSE: PKK) (OTC Pink: PKKFF) ("Tenet" or the "Company"), an innovative AI service provider and operator of the Business Hub™, today announced that it has sold 308 units for gross proceeds of CAD$3,080,000 in the first round of a private placement financing where the Company may sell up to 700 units for gross proceeds of CAD$7,000,000 (the "Financing").
Each unit sold (a "Unit") is comprised of CAD$10,000, face value, of non-secured convertible debentures (the "Debentures") and 10,000 warrants (the "Warrants") to purchase common shares of the Company ("Common Shares") at a price of CAD$2.00 per share any time prior to the expiry date of the Warrants subject to certain terms and conditions. The Debentures will mature twenty-four (24) months from the date of their issuance (the "Maturity Date"), and the Warrants will expire twenty-four (24) months from the date of their issuance (the "Expiry Date"). The Debentures will bear interest at a rate of 10% per annum, payable in cash. Interest shall be paid by Tenet monthly, starting on the last day of the first month following the date of issuance of the Debentures.
From the date of issue until the Expiry Date, unless automatically converted, investors may elect to convert, in whole or in part, the face value of the Debentures into Common Shares of the Company at the price of CAD$1.00 per Common Share. At any time prior to the Expiry Date, if the Common Shares trade at a price of CAD$1.50 or more for three (3) consecutive trading days, the then remaining face value of the Debentures will be automatically converted into Common Shares at the price of CAD$1.00 per Common Share.
Certain qualified individuals and registered investment dealers ("Finders") may assist the Company with respect to the Financing and may receive from the Company, subject to compliance with securities laws, a cash Finder's fee equal to 7% of the gross proceeds of the Financing that they help place, and a warrant Finder's fee equal to a number of warrants representing 7% of the gross proceeds of the Financing that they help place (the "Finder Warrant(s)"). Each Finder Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one Common Share for a period of twenty-four (24) months following the date of its issuance, at an exercise price of CAD$2.00.
The Debentures, Common Shares, Warrants and Finder Warrants issued in connection with the Financing are subject to a hold period of four months and one day from the closing date of the Financing. Tenet will use the proceeds of the Financing for working capital related to its Canadian operations and may close additional rounds of the Financing for gross proceed of up to the maximum amount of CAD$7,000,000 of the Financing until the Company has satisfied any remaining conditions and has obtained a receipt from the Ontario Securities Commission (OSC), for a final prospectus to proceed with its pending public offering financing of up to CAD$30,000,000.
