Atom Energy Inc. Announces Private Placement,
Capital Transactions, and Update on Proposed Transaction
October 26, 2018 – VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA – Atom Energy Inc. (“Atom” or the “Company”) announces that it intends to undertake a non-brokered private placement of up to 10 million Common Shares of the Company at a price of $0.25 per share. Net proceeds from the private placement will be used to fund working capital and other corporate purposes as the Company continues to work toward closing the previously announced acquisition of 6th Wave Innovations Corp (“6th Wave”).
Further, the Company reports that is has granted a total of 2,650,000 options to directors and consultants. The options are exercisable at a price of $0.40 per share and will expire on October 22, 2023. One third of the options will vest after 6 months, with an additional one third to vest every 6 months thereafter.
The Company further advises that it has amended the terms of certain share purchase warrants of the Company. A total of 1,023,455 warrants were originally issued on November 16, 2017 pursuant to debt settlement agreements and 8,300,000 were issued on November 17, 2017 pursuant to a private placement. Each of the share purchase warrants entitled the holder to purchase one common share of the company at a price of $0.065 per common share for a term of 12 months. The Company has extended the term of the share purchase warrants such that they now expire on November 16, 2019 and November 17, 2019 respectively. Certain of the warrants are held by parties who are considered “related parties” of the Company. Therefore, the amendment of the warrants constitutes a “related party transaction” as contemplated by Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Shareholders in Special Transactions. However, the exemptions from formal valuation and minority approval requirements provided for by these guidelines can be relied upon as the fair market value of the warrants does not exceed 25% of the Company’s market capitalization.
Plan of Merger
The Company is pleased to provide an update with respect to its Agreement and Plan of Merger with 6th Wave Innovations Corp, as announced in its press release of September 11, 2018.
