Spectra7 Announces Closing of Further Upsized $14.8 Million Private Placement

10/26/2021 | 01:10pm EST

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES

SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 26, 2021 /CNW/ -- (TSXV:SEV) (OTCQB:SPVNF) Spectra7 Microsystems Inc. ("Spectra7" or the "Company"), a leading provider of high-performance analog semiconductor products for broadband connectivity markets, today announced the closing of the Company's previously announced upsized brokered private placement, which was further upsized due to overwhelming demand (the "Private Placement").  Pursuant to the Private Placement, the Company has issued 11,183,990 common shares (the "Common Shares") at a price of $1.32 per Common Share for aggregate gross proceeds of $14,762,867.  All dollar amounts in this news release are denominated in Canadian dollars unless otherwise indicated.

Cormark Securities Inc. (the "Agent") acted as sole agent and bookrunner to offer the Common Shares for sale on a best efforts agency basis. The Agent received a cash commission of $542,558, being 6% of the aggregate proceeds raised in the Private Placement (excluding proceeds raised from investors on the president's list) and broker warrants entitling the Agent to purchase up to 411,028 Common Shares, being 6% of the aggregate of number of Common Shares issued in the Private Placement (excluding Common Shares issued to investors on the president's list) at $1.32 per Common Share for a period of two years from the closing.

The net proceeds from the Private Placement are intended to be used for working capital to support revenue growth and for general corporate purposes. The Company now has the flexibility to consider its options to improve its overall capital structure.

"Investor demand for our offering significantly exceeded our original expectations. New investors in both Canada and the United States recognize the opportunity we have to expand our leading position in the fast growing Active Copper Cable market to support hyperscale data centers worldwide," said Raouf Halim, Chief Executive Officer of Spectra7. "We are also pleased to announce that order backlog has increased beyond the US$7.2 million we reported earlier this month, further increasing our confidence that annual revenue will grow significantly in fiscal 2022."

Pursuant to Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"), the Private Placement constituted a "related party transaction" as insiders of the Company subscribed for 615,757 Common Shares. The Company is relying on exemptions from the formal valuation and minority approval requirements of MI 61-101. The Company did not file a material change report more than 21 days before the closing of the Private Placement as the details of the related parties' participation in the Private Placement had not been settled. The Private Placement was approved by all of the independent directors of the Company.

All Common Shares issued in the Private Placement are subject to a statutory hold period until the date that is four months and one day from the date of issuance.

This news release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the securities in the United States. The securities have not been and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "U.S. Securities Act"), or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the United States or to U.S. Persons unless registered under the U.S. Securities Act and any applicable state securities laws or an exemption from such registration is available.
