Firan Technology Group Corporation Announces Receipt for Final Prospectus

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - June 22, 2016) -


Firan Technology Group Corporation (TSX:FTG) ("FTG" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has received a receipt dated June 22, 2016 (the "Receipt") from the Ontario Securities Commission for the Company's final short form prospectus (the "Final Prospectus") filed with the securities regulatory authorities in the provinces of Alberta, British Columbia and Ontario with respect to the qualification for distribution of an aggregate of 3,450,000 subscription warrants of the Company (the "Subscription Warrants") issuable upon the deemed exercise of the 3,450,000 previously issued special warrants (the "Special Warrants") of the Company (the "Offering").

The Special Warrants were previously issued on May 10, 2016 pursuant to an underwritten private placement led by Acumen Capital Finance Partners Limited ("Acumen") and including Paradigm Capital Inc. and Clarus Securities Inc. (collectively, the "Underwriters") for gross proceeds to the Company of $6,900,000. In accordance with the terms of the indenture governing the Special Warrants, each Special Warrant entitles the holder thereof to receive one Subscription Warrant on the deemed exercise of the Special Warrants for no additional consideration. All Special Warrants will be deemed exercised without the payment of additional consideration or further action on the part of the holder as at 4:59 pm EDT on June 24, 2016.

The Toronto Stock Exchange has conditionally approved the listing of the Subscription Warrants. The listing of the Subscription Warrants is expected to occur on or about June 27, 2016 under the symbol "FTG.R".

The net proceeds of the Offering will be used by the Company to pay a portion of the US$9.3 million purchase price (subject to customary adjustments) for the acquisition announced May 5, 2016 (the "Acquisition") of Teledyne Technologies Incorporated's printed circuit technology business by FTG Circuits Inc. The Acquisition is currently expected to close in early July 2016.

Upon the satisfaction or waiver of each of the conditions precedent to the closing of the Acquisition (other than the payment of the consideration for the Acquisition): (a) one common share of the Company will be automatically issued for each Subscription Warrant (subject to customary anti-dilution protection) outstanding, without payment of additional consideration or further action by the holder thereof; and (b) the net proceeds from the sale of the Special Warrants (less 50% of the Underwriters' commission and any applicable expenses) will be released from escrow to the Company for the purposes of completing the Acquisition. If: (i) the Acquisition is not completed on or before July 15, 2016 (or such later date as may be agreed to by Acumen on behalf of the Underwriters); (ii) the purchase and sale agreement in respect of the Acquisition is terminated in accordance with its terms at any earlier time; (iii) the Subscription Warrant indenture is terminated at any earlier time, or (iv) the Company has advised the Underwriters or announced to the public that it does not intend to proceed with the Acquisition, an amount per Subscription Warrant equal to the subscription price of a Special Warrant will be paid to holders of the Subscription Warrants and the Subscription Warrants will be cancelled.
