Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - August 18, 2023) - Tenet Fintech Group Inc. (CSE: PKK) (OTC Pink: PKKFF) ("Tenet" or the "Company"), an innovative analytics service provider and operator of the Cubeler® Business Hub, further to its press release of June 29, 2023 in which it disclosed an intention to complete financings for gross proceeds of up to $20,000,000 (the "Financing"), is pleased to announce that it has issued and completed a second tranche closing of the Financing (the "Second Tranche Closing") with the sale of 7,625 units (the "Units") comprised of convertible debentures and warrants by way of non-brokered private placement financing at a price of $1,000 per Unit for gross proceeds of approximately CAD$7,625,000.
Certain directors and officers of Tenet (the "Insiders") had intended to purchase a total of 710 Units from the Second Tranche Closing, but given the fact that the Company intends to file its second quarter 2023 results on August 29, 2023, the purchase of the Units by the Insiders will now take place in a third tranche closing of the Financing shortly after the filing of Tenet's second quarter 2023 results in order to respect the Company's insider trading policy.
Each Unit sold in the Second Tranche Closing is comprised of: (i) one 10.0% non-secured convertible debenture of the Company in the principal amount of $1,000 (a "Convertible Debenture") and (ii) 4,000 warrants (the "Warrants") to purchase common shares of the Company (the "Common Shares"). The Convertible Debentures will mature thirty-six (36) months from the date of issuance (the "Maturity Date") and, subject to prior conversion in accordance with their terms, will be repaid in cash at the Maturity Date. Each Warrant will be exercisable to acquire one Common Share (each, a "Warrant Share") at an exercise price of $0.50 per Warrant Share for a period of twenty-four (24) months from the date of issuance thereof.
From the date of issue until their Maturity Date, Convertible Debenture holders may elect to convert, in whole or in part, the face value of the Convertible Debentures into Common Shares at a conversion price of $0.25 per Common Share. At any time prior to the Maturity Date, if the Common Shares trade at a price of CAD$5.00 or more for three (3) consecutive trading days, any non-converted and remaining face value of the Convertible Debentures will be automatically converted into Common Shares at a conversion price of CAD$0.25 per Common Share. Upon the conversion of the Convertible Debentures, the Company will pay to the Convertible Debenture holders, in cash, the interest accrued on the Convertible Debentures for the amount converted up to but excluding the date of conversion.
The Convertible Debentures shall bear interest at a rate of 10.0% per annum from the date of issue, payable monthly in arrears in cash. Interest shall be computed on the basis of a 360-day year composed of twelve 30-day months.
The Convertible Debentures, the securities to be issued underlying the Convertible Debenture, the Warrants and the Finder Warrants and any underlying securities are subject to a hold period of four months and one day from the closing date of the Financing. The Second Tranche Closing, any additional closings and the Financing are all subject to the approval of the Canadian Securities Exchange and are subject to compliance with applicable regulatory requirements, including National Instrument 45-106 - Prospectus Exemptions.
Tenet plans to use the proceeds of the Second Tranche Closing to help complete the remaining pillars of its Cubeler® Business Hub in Canada and working capital purposes as part of its normal operations.
