TORONTO, Feb. 29, 2024 /CNW/ - Newtopia Inc. ("Newtopia" or the "Company") (TSXV: NEWU) (OTCQBL NEWUF), a tech-enabled habit change provider focused on preventing, slowing and reversing chronic disease, is pleased to announce that it has closed a brokered private placement offering of 14,430,000 units of the Company (the "Units") at a price of $0.05 per Unit (the "Offering Price") for aggregate gross proceeds of $721,500 (the "Brokered Offering"). The Offering was conducted through Bloom Burton Securities Inc. (the "Agent"). Each Unit is comprised of one common share in the capital of the Company (each a "Common Share") and one Common Share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant is exercisable to acquire one Common Share at an exercise price of $0.10 per Common Share, subject to adjustments in certain events, until March 1, 2027.  

The Company also concurrently closed a non-brokered private placement of 500,000 Units, at the Offering Price for gross proceeds of $25,000 (the "Non-Brokered Offering", and together with the Brokered Offering, collectively, the "Offerings") on the same terms as the Brokered Offering. No fees or commissions are payable to the Agent in connection with the Non-Brokered Offering. A finder acting in connection with the Non-Brokered Offering received a finder's fee in the aggregate total amount of $1,250 and an aggregate of 25,000 finder's warrants exercisable for Common Shares on substantially the same terms as the Broker Warrants (defined below).

The net proceeds of the Offerings will be used to fund general working capital and for general corporate purposes.

In consideration for the services provided by the Agent in connection with the Brokered Offering, the Agent received: (i) a cash fee in the aggregate amount of $38,675; and (ii) 721,000 non-transferable broker warrants (the "Broker Warrants"). Each Broker Warrant is exercisable for one Common Share at the Offering Price, subject to adjustments in certain events, until March 1, 2026.

All securities issued in connection with the Offerings are subject to a hold period which will expire on June 30, 2024, the date that is four months and one day from the closing of the Offerings.  The Offerings are subject to final acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV"). The TSXV has conditionally accepted the Offerings.

The Units were sold in reliance on exemptions from the prospectus requirements in the Province of Ontario.

The securities referred to in this news release have not been, nor will they be, registered under the United States Securities Act of ??1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold within the United States or to, or for ?the account or benefit of, U.S. persons absent United States registration or an applicable exemption from the United States ?registration requirements.  This news release does not constitute an offer for sale of securities, nor a solicitation ?for offers to buy any securities in the United States, nor in any other jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.  Any public offering of securities in the United States must be made by means of ?a prospectus containing detailed information about the Company and management, as well as financial ?statements.?

As part of the Brokered Offering, Jeff Ruby, Chief Executive Officer of the Company, Roger Poirier, a director of the Company, and Hugh G. McCauley, an insider of the Company, subscribed for an aggregate of 1,110,000 Units ($55,500) (collectively, the "Insiders"). Such participation of the Insiders in the Brokered Offering constitutes a "related party transaction" as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 ("MI 61-101"). The related party transaction is exempt from the formal valuation requirements of MI 61-101 as none of the securities of the Company are listed on a prescribed stock exchange. The related party transaction is exempt from the minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as, at the time the related party transaction was agreed to, neither the fair market value of, nor the fair market value of the consideration for, the related party transaction, insofar as it involves interested parties, exceeded 25% of the Company's market capitalization. The Company did not file a material change report with respect to the participation of the Insider at least 21 days before the closing of the Offering as the details of the Insider's participation in the Offering had not been settled and the Company wished to complete the Offering in an expeditious manner.
