SANTA MONICA, Calif. and TORONTO, Feb. 28, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Tinley Beverage Company Inc. (the “Company” or “Tinley“) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with Canaccord Genuity Corp. and Gravitas Securities Inc. to act as co-lead agents (collectively the “Agents”) pursuant to which the Company will issue on a private placement basis (the “Offering”) up to $10,000,000 aggregate principal amount of units (the “Units”) at a price of $1.00 per Unit. Each Unit will consist of one Common Share of the Company and one common share purchase warrant (“Warrant”) of the Company.  Each Warrant will be exercisable to acquire one common share of the Company for a period of 24 months following the Closing Date (as hereinafter defined) of the Offering at an exercise price of $1.35 per Common Share.

Pursuant to the terms of the Offering, the Agents have been granted an option to arrange for the sale of up to $5,000,000 of additional Units, which option is exercisable by the Agents at any time up until the closing date.

The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the Offering for expansion beyond California, beverage marketing, acquisitions, and working capital.

The Company will pay cash commissions equal to 8% of the aggregate gross proceeds of the Offering payable in cash or Units, or any combination of cash or Units, at the option of the Agents. The Agents will receive Agents’ Units (the “Agents’ Units”) exercisable at any time prior to the date that is 24 months from the Closing Date to acquire that number of Agents’ Units of the Company equal to 8% of the Common Shares potentially issuable upon the conversion of the aggregate principal amount of Units sold under the Offering.

The Offering is to be issued in the provinces of Canada, offshore, and the United States pursuant to an exemption from US Registration Requirements and such other jurisdictions as may be agreed to by the Company and the Agents, by way of private placement exemptions from prospectus requirements, subject to the receipt of necessary regulatory approvals.
