THIS PRESS RELEASE, REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE CANADIAN LAWS, IS NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWS SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES.
Calyx Bio-Ventures Inc. (TSX VENTURE:CYX) ("Calyx" or the "Company") announce a proposed non-brokered private placement of up to 35,000,000 units at a price of $0.06 per unit (each a "Unit") for cash proceeds of up to $2,100,000 (the "Private Placement"). Each Unit comprises one common share and one common share purchase warrant (each a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to acquire one additional common share of the Company at a price of $0.09 for a period of twenty four months from the closing of the Private Placement, subject to certain acceleration provisions in the event that the shares of the company trade at 15 cents or higher for 10 consecutive trading days. The Company expects that it will pay an 8% cash finders' fee and finders' warrants equal to 8% of the Units placed, and having the same terms as the Warrants, on all or a portion of the Private Placement.
The funds raised from the issuance of the Units will be for general working capital and potential further investment into Agrisoma or other businesses in the tech, agriculture and biotech sectors including the MMPR (Marijuana for Medical Purposes Regulations) and the agri-pharmaceutical space.
Further to the updates issued on March 24 and 26, 2014, Calyx continues to consider financing solutions for Agrisoma that work for all of Agrisoma's stakeholders.
Calyx Bio-Ventures Inc. (TSX VENTURE:CYX) is an agricultural technology company currently focused on renewable fuels including biojet and biodiesel. Calyx is a shareholder of Agrisoma Biosciences Inc., a company which is producing a new proprietary non-food energy feedstock crop - carinata - which yields oil that can be refined into fuels that work in existing engines as a 100 percent petroleum substitute. From seed to sky, fuels produced from carinata substantially reduce carbon and other harmful emissions, and help to reduce global petroleum dependence.
