Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - April 23, 2021) - PeakBirch Logic Inc. ("PeakBirch" or the "Company") (CSE: PKB) (FSE: KYH2) (OTCQB: KTNNF) is pleased to announce the closing of the first tranche of a non-brokered private placement (the "Offering") of 10,391,333 units ("Units") at a price of $0.06 per Unit (the "Offering Price") for aggregate gross proceeds of $623,480.
Each Unit consists of one common share ("Common Share") and one-half of a Common Share purchase warrant ("Warrant"). Each full Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one additional Common Share at $0.07 per Common Share for two years from the closing of the Offering.
In connection with the Offering, Marc Mulvaney, the CEO and a director of the Company, purchased 7,142,857 Common Shares at a price of $0.07 per Common Share by directing the repayment of a promissory note (the "Promissory Note") in the amount of $500,000 owed to Mr. Mulvaney by the Company. The Promissory Note entitled Mr. Mulvaney to convert the principal amount of the Promissory Note to Common Shares at a 10% discount to the 20-day volume weighted average price of the Common Shares on the CSE, however Mr. Mulvaney waived his right to such discounted price and instead directed the purchase of Common Shares at the full current market price.
Together with the proceeds of the Offering, PeakBirch collectively issued 17,534,190 Common Shares and 5,195,666 Warrants for gross proceeds of $1,123,480. No finders fees were paid pursuant to the Offering. The Company expects to close additional tranches under the Offering and has filed a price reservation in respect of the issuance of additional securities at the Offering Price.
The securities issued pursuant to the Offering will be subject to a four-month hold period under securities laws. PeakBirch anticipates that the net proceeds of the Offering will be used to reduce short-term debt and for general working capital purposes.
PeakBirch also announces that its online 4/20 sales, comprising the three weeks leading up to the historically highest cannabis-related sales day, April 20, were up by 216% over the same three-weeks ending April 20, 2020. Key performance indicators including direct traffic, which represents those visitors who reach the Company's websites by directly entering an URL into their browser, and conversion rates, which represents those visitors who ultimately make a purchase on one of the Company's e-commerce sites, were up 39% and 79%, respectively, over the same period.
"I am proud to report that we had the best ever 4/20 sales in all of the Company's history. We had the single biggest sales day beating combined sales volume generated on Black Friday and Cyber Monday in 2020," said COO, Sean Duncombe.
