Toronto, Ontario, October 3, 2014 – GreenBank Capital Inc. (CSE:GBC) (“GreenBank” or “the Company”) announces that the Company has agreed to a non-brokered private placement (the “Private Placement”) with Daniel Wettreich, a director of the Company, of 2,000,000 units (each a “Unit”) of GreenBank at a price of $0.05 per Unit, for gross proceeds of $100,000. Each Unit consists of one common share in the capital of GreenBank and one common share purchase warrant. Each common share purchase warrant entitles the holder to acquire one additional common share in the capital of GreenBank at an exercise price of $0.05, for 36 months after closing. The securities are subject to a hold period of four months and a day. The proceeds of the Private Placement will be used for working capital purposes. Upon closing of the Private Placement, Daniel Wettreich directly and indirectly will beneficially own 4,287,198 common shares of GreenBank, representing 38.47% of GreenBank and 2,000,000 common share purchase warrants representing 95% of the outstanding warrants of GreenBank.
The participation by Daniel Wettreich in the Private Placement is considered to be a related party transaction as defined in Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”). A special committee consisting of an independent director established by the board of directors determined the related party transaction is fair and reasonable in the circumstances to the Company. The Company has relied on sections 5.5(b) and (c) of MI 61-101 for an exemption from the formal valuation requirement, and section 5.7(b) of MI 61-101 for an exemption from the minority shareholder approval requirements. A material change report in respect of the related party transaction will not be filed at least 21 days in advance of the closing of the Private Placement due to the Company’s immediate need to address its financial situation, which omission is both reasonable and fair in the circumstances. MI 61-101 requires if a material change report is filed less than 21 days before the expected date of the closing of the transaction, an explanation is to be provided as to why the shorter period is reasonable or necessary in the circumstances.
Following the private placement GreenBank will have 11,142,460 common shares issued and outstanding.
GreenBank is a corporate finance investment business investing in small cap companies, and private equity investments, and its subsidiary GreenBank Financial has applied for an exempt market dealer licence.
