NetworkNewsBreaks – Organigram Holdings Inc. (TSX.V: OGI) (OTCQX: OGRMF) to Convert $98M Debentures into Common Shares

February 28, 2019 11:43:40

Organigram Holdings (TSX.V: OGI) (OTCQX: OGRMF) recently announced that it will exercise its right to convert all the principal amount outstanding of the remaining debentures on April 1, 2019 into common shares of the company in accordance with the indenture governing the company’s 6 percent convertible unsecured debentures due January 31, 2020. The company believes this conversion will save roughly $4.9 million in cash interest payments that would have accumulated if the outstanding debentures were held to maturity. It will also remove a substantial liability from the company’s balance sheet. Per the terms of the indenture, when the volume weighted average trading price (“VWAP”) of the common shares on the TSX Venture Exchange exceeds $7.05 for 10 consecutive trading days, Organigram can force the conversion of the debentures at the conversion price of $5.42 each. This requirement was met on February 26 when the VWAP for a period of 10 days exceeded $7.05 at close of markets. The conversion is planned to be effective on or near April 1, 2019, at which time approximately $98,024,000 (face value) of debentures outstanding will be converted into roughly 18,085,608 common shares and accrued interest will be paid, less any required deductions or withholdings. Rather than issuing fractional common shares on the conversion, Organigram will make cash payments to holders in an amount equal to the fractional interest in accordance with the indenture.
