TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 01/24/14 -- MCM Capital One Inc. (TSX VENTURE: ZGN.P) ("MCM"), a Capital Pool Company, wishes to provide further details concerning the letter of intent (the "LOI") dated October 3, 2013 for the acquisition of Enerdynamic Hybrid Technologies Inc. ("EHT"), previously announced on October 9, 2013. The acquisition, if completed, will constitute MCM's qualifying transaction pursuant to the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange Inc. (the "Exchange").
The Proposed Qualifying Transaction
The acquisition of EHT (the "Acquisition") is to be completed no later than January 31, 2014 as a share exchange through the issuance of one common share of MCM for each common share of EHT, and one warrant to purchase an MCM common share for each warrant to purchase an EHT common share. The exercise price and term of the MCM warrants will be the same as those for the EHT warrants being purchased.
It is a condition of closing the Acquisition that EHT will raise at least $4,000,000 through the First Private Placement and the Second Private Placement described below. Completion of the Acquisition is also conditional on the execution of a definitive share exchange agreement to be negotiated among the parties, the satisfactory completion of due diligence, approval of the Acquisition by the directors of MCM and EHT, approval by the shareholders of MCM of the name change and appointment of the directors described below and Exchange acceptance of the Acquisition.
The acquisition by MCM of all of the issued and outstanding shares in the capital of EHT is not a Non-Arm's Length Qualifying Transaction under the policies of the Exchange. The Acquisition will not be subject to approval of the shareholders of MCM. However, it is a condition of the Acquisition that the shareholders of MCM shall have approved the appointment of the directors described below and the change of MCM's name to Enerdynamic Hybrid Technologies Corp. or such other name as EHT and MCM may agree upon.
EHT Capital Structure and Financing
EHT is conducting a brokered private placement (the "First Private Placement") to raise up to $3,000,000 by issuance of units (the "First Placement Units") at $0.25 per unit, each unit consisting of one EHT common share and one warrant (a "First Placement Warrant"). Each First Placement Warrant will entitle the holder to acquire one common share at a price of $0.50 per share at any time prior to 5:00 p.m. (Eastern Standard Time) on the date that is 12 months (the "First Anniversary") following the date on which the shares of EHT either (a) become publicly traded on a recognized stock exchange, or (b) are exchanged for shares in a corporation which are (or become in connection with such exchange) publicly traded on a recognized stock exchange (in either case, the "IPO Date") and, at a price of $0.75 per Share during the period following the First Anniversary and ending at 5:00 p.m. (Eastern Standard Time) on the date that is 24 months following the IPO Date. EHT has raised approximately $2,700,000 in the First Private Placement and expects to complete the balance of the First Private Placement.
EHT intends to conduct a second brokered private placement (the "Second Private Placement") to raise up to $8,000,000 by issuance of units (the "Second Placement Units") at $0.50 per unit, each unit consisting of one EHT common share and one-half of a warrant (a "Second Placement Warrant"). Each whole Second Placement Warrant is to be exercisable for one EHT common share at a price of $1.00 for a period of 2 years following closing. The Second Private Placement will close immediately prior to the closing of the Acquisition.
A minimum of $4,000,000 must be raised as a condition of closing the Acquisition. A maximum of $11,000,000 would be raised if both of those private placements are fully sold. The proceeds of the First Private Placement and the Second Private Placement will be used as follows:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Assuming the Minimum Assuming the Maximum Use of Proceeds Raise of $4,000.000 Raise of $11,000.000 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Research and development 750,000 1,500,000 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Purchase of machinery and equipment 750,000 1,200,000 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Inventory and raw materials 1,000,000 2,000,000 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Agent's fees and other costs of the private placements and qualifying transaction 500,000 1,125,000 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Working capital 1,000,000 5,175,000 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Immediately prior to the First Private Placement, there were 31,885,493 EHT common shares and warrants to purchase 4,225,000 EHT common shares at $0.25 each for a period of approximately 2 years.
