Summary of Proposed Transaction
The Proposed Transaction will be structured as a share exchange pursuant to the Definitive Agreement, under which Yubba will acquire all of the issued and outstanding shares in the capital of IHC (the “IHC Shares”) from Holdco whereby Yubba will issue such number of Yubba Consolidation Shares (as defined below) on the basis of one (1) Yubba Consolidation Share for each Holdco Share issued and outstanding as at immediately prior to the closing of the Proposed Transaction (the “Closing”). Pursuant to the Proposed Transaction, holders of common shares in the capital of Holdco (the “Holdco Shares”) will receive one (1) Yubba Consolidation Share for each Holdco Share. Following which, Holdco will distribute all of Yubba Consolidation Shares it received as a consideration for IHC Shares to its shareholders on a pro-rata basis, as a result of which, the shareholders of Holdco thereby will become the shareholders of Yubba.
In connection with the Proposed Transaction, Yubba will seek to change its name (the “Name Change”) to “Impact Development Group Inc.” or such other name as may be determined by IHC and is accepted by the TSXV. In order to align the value of the Yubba Shares with the value of the Holdco Shares, it is anticipated that Yubba will complete a share consolidation (the “Yubba Consolidation”) pursuant to which 5,220,000 Yubba Shares will be consolidated on a 1:26.0903 basis resulting in approximately 220,079 Yubba Shares issued and outstanding on a post-Yubba Consolidation basis (the “Yubba Consolidation Shares”), inclusive of the Advisor A Fee (as defined below).
IHC does not have any convertible securities currently outstanding. Yubba has 300,000 options held by directors and officers of Yubba (the “Options”) and 177,600 broker warrants (the “Warrants”) outstanding to purchase Yubba Shares. Each Option and Warrant has an exercise price of C$0.10 and expires on August 26, 2026. As part of the Proposed Transaction, such convertible securities will automatically adjust in accordance with their terms as a result of Yubba Consolidation.
It is anticipated that, prior to the Closing, the following will occur:
(a) Holdco will complete an assumption of approximately US$23,619,348 in debt of IHC (the “Debt Assumption”);
(b) Holdco will complete a conversion of approximately US$34,661,821 in debt owed by Holdco to certain debt holders through the issuance of Holdco Shares at a deemed price of US$3.60 per Holdco Share (the “Debt Conversion”);
(c) Holdco will complete a conversion of all of the convertible notes (the “Convertible Notes”) in the capital of Holdco in the aggregate amount of US $33,333,333 plus any applicable interest issued to certain holders (the “Notes Conversion”). Each Convertible Note will be converted into Holdco Shares on the basis of US$15.00 per one (1) Holdco Share;
(d) Finco (as defined below) and IHC will complete the Concurrent Financing (as defined below); and
(e) Yubba will complete a three-cornered amalgamation (the “Amalgamation”) between Yubba, 1000469360 Ontario Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Yubba incorporated solely for the purpose of completing the Concurrent Financing (“Finco”), and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Yubba to be incorporated solely for the purpose of completing the Amalgamation (“Subco”) pursuant to the Business Corporations Act (Ontario) pursuant to which Finco and Subco will continue as an amalgamated entity (“Amalco”), which will be a wholly-owned subsidiary of Yubba.
Pursuant to the Proposed Transaction, it is anticipated that all Finco Shares, will each be exchanged for no additional consideration by the holders thereof for one (1) Resulting Issuer Share, in connection with the completion of the Proposed Transaction. Any convertible securities outstanding will be exchanged for an equivalent number of convertible securities of the Resulting Issuer on equivalent terms and conditions, as applicable. The Resulting Issuer Shares will be freely-tradable in each of the provinces and territories of Canada, subject to any escrow and/or resale restrictions that may be imposed by the TSXV.
The parties agreed that, as part of the Proposed Transaction, Yubba will pay Joshua Lebovic (“Advisor A”) $100,000 representing finder’s fee (the “Advisor A Fee”) payable in 20,007 Yubba Consolidation Shares at the Offering Price (as defined below) per Yubba Consolidation Share, in consideration for Advisor A’s services provided to Yubba in facilitating the Proposed Transaction.
Information about the terms of the Proposed Transaction is set out in the long form non-offering prospectus (the “Prospectus”) regarding the Proposed Transaction filed today by Yubba in accordance with TSXV policies and filed with the TSXV and the Ontario Securities Commission, the British Columbia Securities Commission and the Alberta Securities Commission on SEDAR.
Completion of the Proposed Transaction is subject to a number of conditions including, but not limited to: (a) completion of Debt Assumption; (b) completion of Debt Conversion; (c) completion of Notes Conversion; (d) completion of Yubba Consolidation; (e) completion of the Concurrent Financing; (f) completion of the Amalgamation; (g) receipt of regulatory, corporate and third party approvals; (h) acceptance of the Proposed Transaction as Yubba’s Qualifying Transaction by the TSXV; (i) shareholders of Holdco approving certain matters ancillary to the Proposed Transaction, if determined by Bahamian counsel to be required; and (j) shareholders of Yubba approving certain matters ancillary to the Proposed Transaction, including the Yubba Consolidation, the appointment of director and officer nominees of IHC, the approval of omnibus equity incentive plan, and the Name Change. There can, however, be no assurance that the Proposed Transaction will be completed as proposed or at all.
In conjunction with, and prior to the Closing, Finco and IHC will complete a non-brokered private placement offering to raise minimum of US$4 million and maximum of US$8 million through the issuance of (i) subscription receipts of Finco (the “Subscription Receipts”) at a price of US$3.62 per Subscription Receipt (the “Offering Price”) and (ii) convertible notes of IHC (the “Promissory Notes”) (the “Concurrent Financing”). Immediately prior to the completion of the Proposed Transaction, Subscription Receipts, without payment of any additional consideration or further action on the part of the holders thereof, each will be converted into one (1) unit of Finco each to be comprised of one (1) common share in the capital of Finco (the “Finco Share”) and one (1) common share purchase warrant (the “Finco Warrant”). Each Finco Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one (1) Finco Share at a price equal to US$4.34 per Finco Share for a period of two (2) years following the completion of the Proposed Transaction. The Promissory Notes anticipated to be issued pursuant to the Concurrent Financing will carry 8% interest per annum and are anticipated to be either (i) repaid by Holdco or (ii) converted into units of IHC or Holdco, with each such unit to be comprised of one (1) common share and one (1) common share purchase warrant having equivalent terms as Finco Shares and Finco Warrants.
As part of the Concurrent Financing, Finco may pay to certain finders (the “Finders”), for their assistance with facilitating the Concurrent Financing, the finder’s fee (the “Finders’ Fee”) comprising of (i) 7% in cash and (ii) 7% compensation warrants (the “Finder Warrants”) each entitling the holder thereof to purchase, at a price of US$3.62, one (1) Finco Share and (2) Finco Warrant.
The Concurrent Financing shall be completed on such date to be determined between IHC and the Escrow Agent. Completion of the Concurrent Financing will be subject to the receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals and other customary conditions.
Assuming that the Closing occurs and all other escrow release conditions for the Subscription Receipts are satisfied or waived, the net proceeds from the sale of the Subscription Receipts will be released to the Resulting Issuer and are expected to be used for growth initiatives, development of current projects, working capital and general corporate purposes.
On the Closing, each Finco Share, Finco Warrant and Finder Warrant issued in connection with the Concurrent Financing will be exchanged 1:1 basis for Resulting Issuer Shares and replacement warrants of the Resulting Issuer (the “Resulting Issuer Warrants”), as applicable, with the Resulting Issuer Warrants having equivalent terms to the Finco Warrants and Finder Warrants.
All securities issued pursuant to the Concurrent Financing will be subject to a four-month resale restriction from the date of the issuance thereof.
