NetworkNewsBreaks – HEXO Corp. (TSX: HEXO) (NYSE: HEXO) Closes $70M Private Placement of Convertible Debentures

HEXO (TSX: HEXO) (NYSE: HEXO) recently announced the closing of its private placement of unsecured convertible debentures for total gross proceeds of $70 million. The group of investors that took part in the offering includes HEXO CEO Sebastien St-Louis, as well as HEXO directors Dr. Michael Munzar, Vincent Chiara, Nathalie Bourque and Adam Miron. Pursuant to the offering, the company issued a total of $70 million principal amount of 8% unsecured convertible debentures maturing on December 5, 2022. The debentures are convertible any time after December 7, 2020 and prior to maturity at a conversion price of $3.16 per share, subject to adjustment in certain events. If the daily volume weighted average trading price of the common shares is greater than $7.50 for 15 consecutive trading days any time after December 7, 2020 and prior to maturity, HEXO may force the conversion of all outstanding debentures at the conversion price on 30 days’ notice. The company may also repay all, but not less than all, of the principal amount of the ‎debentures, ‎plus accrued and unpaid interest at any time on or before December 4, 2020. Upon maturity, the debenture holders have the right to require HEXO to repay any principal amount of their ‎debentures through the issuance of common shares at a price equal to the volume weighted average trading price of the ‎common shares on the TSX for the 5 trading days immediately preceding the ‎payment date. All securities issued are subject to a four month hold period expiring April 6, 2020. Certain insiders of the company purchased and were issued, directly or indirectly, $8.02 million principal amount of debentures, which constituted “related party transactions” within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”). This did not exceed 25% of the company’s market capitalization, and therefore is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101. The company plans to use the net proceeds from the offering for working capital and general corporate purposes. “This financing demonstrates that investors are confident in HEXO,” HEXO co-founder and CEO Sébastien St-Louis stated in the news release. “As we continue to focus on market share, growth, and becoming a leader in our industry, increasing our cash on hand to over $70 million allows us to continue working towards these goals.”

Oturu scores 30 as Minnesota beats No. 19 Michigan 75-67

Sep 23, 2020

MINNEAPOLIS — Daniel Oturu shook off an injury and had a career game to help Minnesota take down another ranked opponent. Oturu scored a career-high 30 points and the Gophers went on a late 11-0 run to beat No. 19 Michigan 75-67 on Sunday. The sophomore center had 20 points in a dominant first half, and he continued his roll with six quick points after the break. But with 14:35 remaining, he hit the deck hard while fighting for a rebound. He stayed on the floor for nearly five minutes, clutching his left shoulder as a hush fell over the...

Bey scores 33, leads No. 16 Villanova past Georgetown 80-66

Sep 23, 2020

PHILADELPHIA — Saddiq Bey hit eight 3-pointers and scored a career-high 33 points to lead No. 16 Villanova to an 80-66 win over Georgetown on Saturday. Bey, a 6-foot-8 sophomore forward, hadn't been much of a 3-pointer shooter this season for the Wildcats (12-3, 3-1 Big East). He'd made only 21 and four of those came in a nonconference game against Ohio. He shot just 3-for-10 overall in a win this week at Creighton, hardly a sign he was about to bust out with a career game against the Hoyas (11-6, 1-3). Left open, and determined to shoot, Bey had...

Sep 23, 2020

ALTENBERG, Germany — Olympic champion David Gleirscher finally got his first World Cup luge victory, leading Austria’s sweep of gold Saturday. Gleirscher finished two runs at historic Altenberg in 1 minute, 48.150 seconds to hold off Italy’s Dominik Fischnaller by about one-quarter of a second. Fischnaller finished in 1:48.383 and Germany’s Felix Loch was third in 1:48.420. Gleirscher becomes the third different Austrian man to win a race this season. He’s 1 for 1 at the Olympics, after being the surprise winner of gold at the 2018 Pyeongchang Games. And he’s now 1 for 59 in World Cup races, getting...

Former UConn coach Jim Calhoun earns 900th career win

Sep 23, 2020

WEST HARTFORD, Conn. — Jim Calhoun’s 900th win looked like so many others during a Hall of Fame coaching career. He stomped. He screamed. He slammed objects. The only real difference is the sideline he now controls. The longtime Connecticut coach added another milestone Friday night when the University of Saint Joseph beat Pratt Institute 105-61. Now in his second season coaching in Division III, Calhoun joined Mike Krzyzewski, Jim Boeheim and Bob Knight — all former rivals and national champions at college basketball’s highest level — as the only coaches to coach at least 10 seasons in Division I...
