Offers flexibility in expansion plans
LAS VEGAS and VANCOUVER, BC, June 15, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Body and Mind Inc. (CSE: BAMM) (OTCQB: BMMJ) (the “Company” or “BaM”), a U.S. multi-state cannabis operator, is is pleased to provide an update on the extension and amendments to its loan agreement (the “Loan Agreement”) entered into between the Company, DEP Nevada, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, the guarantors as set forth in the Loan Agreement, FG Agency Lending LLC (the “Agent”) and Bomind Holdings LLC (the “Lender”), dated July 19, 2021, as amended November 30, 2021.
The Company has entered into a second amendment to the loan agreement (“Amendment No. 2 to the loan agreement”) to extend the maturity date by one year until July 19, 2026. In addition, the Amendment No. 2 to the Loan Agreement allows the deadline for the Company to draw on the US$4.44 million Deferred Drawn Term Loan which will be extended from June 1, 2022 to March 31, 2023, whereby 4 million US dollars of funds will be advanced to the Company. The Company’s ability to draw on the Deferred Drawn Term Loan is subject to compliance with certain provisions of the Loan Agreement, including the provision of a satisfactory budget approved at the Lender’s sole discretion. Amendment No. 2 to the loan agreement increases the interest rate on funds advanced from 13% to 15% per annum, which additional interest of 2% may be paid in kind, with interest payable on the first day of each month. Amendment No. 2 to the loan agreement provides for an exit fee equal to 1.5% of the principal balance, which is due and payable upon any payment, partial or total, of the initial term loan and the loan deferred-draw term.
In partial consideration for Amendment No. 2 to the Loan Agreement, the Company issued 1,000,000 common stock warrants (each, a “Warrant”) to the Lender. Each Warrant entitles its holder to purchase common shares (each, a “Warrant Share”) at an exercise price of $0.16 per Warrant Share until June 14, 2027.
Amendment No. 2 to the Loan Agreement contains additional features and requirements and the material terms will be described in a current report on Form 8-K to be filed by the Company on or about June 17, 2022.
The expansion of our current lending facility aligns with our development program and provides flexibility for future opportunities.
Michael Mills, CEO of Body and Mind
As we continue with our expansion plans, this opportunity to amend the loan facility provides the Company with the ability to pursue opportunities.
