Aleafia Health Provides Further Update on its Convertible Debt
- Following final tabulation, Debentureholders pass Extraordinary Resolution approving Debenture Amendments
- Canceling Debentureholder meeting previously scheduled for June 23, 2022
TORONTO – June 20, 2022 – Aleafia Health Inc. (TSX: AH, AH.DB, OTCQX: ALEAF) (“Aleafia Health” or the “Company”) is providing a corporate update regarding its outstanding listed unsecured convertible debentures (TSX: AH.DB), issued on June 27, 2019 and maturing on June 27, 2022 (the “Debentures”). Debentureholders representing approximately 76.12% of the aggregate principal amount of Debentures outstanding have executed consents in favour of the amendments to the Debentures (the “Debenture Amendments”) previously announced by the Company on May 12, 2022. This exceeds the required 66 2/3% for the written extraordinary resolution to approve the Debenture Amendments. The meeting scheduled for June 23, 2022 will be cancelled.
The transaction is expected to close the week of June 27, 2022. Upon completion of the transaction, Debentureholders who timely responded to the consent solicitation by the applicable deadlines described in the solicitation materials will receive a consent fee (the “Consent Fee”) calculated as the amount of accrued interest on the existing Convertible Debentures between July 1, 2021 and the effective date of the Debenture Amendments, payable in additional 2028 Debentures at par. For illustration, if the effective date of the Debenture Amendments occurs on June 30, 2022, the Consent Fee payable in additional 2028 Debentures at par would be $84.65 per $1,000 principal amount of Debentures, or 8.5%, subject to 25% withholding for non-residents of Canada.
