Greenlane Renewables Announces Exercise of Warrants for Gross Proceeds of $1.3 million
Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada – July 8, 2020 Greenlane Renewables Inc. (“Greenlane”) (TSXV: GRN / FSE: 52G) today announced the exercise of 5,094,765 share purchase warrants for one common share of Greenlane at an exercise price of $0.26 (the “Warrants”), resulting in gross proceeds to Greenlane of $1.3 million. The exercise of the Warrants were in connection with the Framework Agreement with Pressure Technologies plc (“PT”), announced by the Company on July 2, through which PT sold its equity position in Greenlane of 7,663,920 common shares and the Warrants through a series of block trades.
"The exercise of these warrants, enabled by the previously announced Framework Agreement with PT, not only provides additional cash reserves for the business and further strengthens our balance sheet, but also is indicative of the strong demand for the underlying common shares of the Company," said Brad Douville, President and CEO of Greenlane. "The cash infusion from the warrants, the immediate reduction in debt owed to PT by $1.8 million to $5.2 million, plus removing the perceived market overhang relating to PT's short term investment horizon, are all impactful benefits for Greenlane. As a result, we’re moving forward with a simplified corporate structure with a new and broadened base of investors."
