The Financing and Pre-Emptive Right to Maintain
Doyon purchased 10,473,000 units of Tectonic for a subscription price of C$0.20 per unit. Each unit is comprised of one common share of Tectonic and one-half common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant has an exercise price of C$0.40 and will expire April 17, 2022.
The Warrants are subject to an acceleration clause whereby if the volume-weighted average trading price of Tectonic’s common shares on the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV”) is C$0.56 or greater for a period of ten (10) consecutive trading days (whether or not trading occurs on all such days), Tectonic has the right to accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants to thirty (30) days from the date of issuance of a news release by Tectonic announcing the accelerated exercise period.
Doyon has agreed not to exercise any Warrants if as a result of such exercise it causes Doyon to hold more than 19.99% of the total outstanding common shares of Tectonic, together with all other common shares beneficially held by Doyon, directly or indirectly, unless and until the shareholders of Tectonic have passed a resolution approving such exercise of the Warrants in accordance with the applicable rules and policies of the TSXV.
Doyon was granted a pre-emptive right to maintain its pro-rata interest for as long as Doyon owns more than 10.0% of the common shares of Tectonic (calculated on a partially diluted basis).
The Company intends to use the proceeds from the Financing for general working capital.
The securities issued pursuant to the Financing are subject to a statutory hold period expiring August 18, 2020 in accordance with applicable securities law and the policies of the TSXV.
With more than 12.5 million acres of land and over 20,000 shareholders, Doyon is the largest private landholder in Alaska and one of the largest in North America. Doyon’s mission is to continually enhance their position as a financially secure Native Corporation and promote the economic and social well-being of their shareholders and future shareholders.
