VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Jan. 26, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nabis Holdings Inc. (CSE: NAB) (OTC: NABIF) (FRA: A2PL) ("Nabis" or the "Company") today announced that it has completed its previously announced proposal (the "Proposal") under the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act (Canada), pursuant to which the Company implemented a recapitalization of its previously outstanding CDN$35 million principal amount of 8.0% unsecured convertible debentures (the "Debentures") and all other prior debts of the Company (the "Recapitalization").
Upon implementation of the Proposal, (i) all existing equity claims in the Company were irrevocably and finally extinguished; and (ii) in full and final satisfaction of all claims of Nabis' creditors, which were irrevocably and finally extinguished, the Company issued an aggregate of 3,700,000 new common shares in the capital of the Company ("New Common Shares") and an aggregate principal amount of CDN$23 million new 5.3% senior unsecured notes due 2023 ("New Unsecured Notes") on the terms set out in the Proposal.
The Debentures previously posted for trading on the Canadian Securities Exchange (the "CSE") under the ticker symbol "NAB.DB" and the Company's warrants previously posted for trading on the CSE under the ticker symbol "NAB.WT" were both cancelled pursuant to the Proposal and were delisted from the CSE as of close of markets today. The Company's previously outstanding common shares that were cancelled pursuant to the Proposal were delisted and concurrently the New Common Shares were listed under a new CUSIP on the CSE, each effective as of close of markets today. The New Unsecured Notes will begin trading on the CSE on January 27, 2021 under the ticker symbol "NAB. NT".
In connection with the implementation of the Proposal, all of the prior directors of Nabis were deemed to have resigned, and have been replaced with each of Bruce Langstaff, Jennifer Law, Scott Kelly and Jared Carroll. Nicole Rusaw has agreed to remain as a consultant to the Company.
