CALGARY, Alberta, May 09, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Carbeeza Inc. (formerly HIT Technologies Inc.) (“Carbeeza” or the “Company“) (TSX.V:AUTO) is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced non-brokered private placement (the “Private Placement“) of 10% convertible unsecured debentures (the “Debentures“).
Pursuant to the closing of the Private Placement, the Company issued 400 Debentures at a price of $5,000 per Debenture for aggregate gross proceeds of $2,000,000, all of which were issued to insiders of the Company. The net proceeds of the Debenture offering will be used by the Company to scale up the marketing campaign and for general corporate purposes.
The Debentures mature on May 9, 2024 (the “Maturity Date“) and bear interest at a rate of 10% per annum, payable in arrears on the Maturity Date. The Debentures are convertible at any time prior to maturity, at the option of the holders, into common shares (“Common Shares“) of the Company at a conversion price of $0.40 per Common Share, subject to adjustment in certain events as described in a debenture certificate representing the Convertible Debentures (the “Debenture Certificate“).
The purchase by insiders of Debentures pursuant to Offering constitutes a related party transaction, as defined under applicable securities laws. The fair market value of the subject matter and consideration paid by insiders under the Offering is less that 25% of the Company’s market capitalization and the Company is relying on the exemptions under Section 5.5(a) and Section 5.7(1)(a) from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders In Special Transactions.
The Debentures, and any Common Shares issuable upon conversion of the Debentures, will be subject to a four month and one day hold period in accordance with applicable securities laws and the policies of the Exchange.

The securities have not been and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “U.S. Securities Act“) or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold within the United States or to U.S. persons unless registered under the U.S. Securities Act and applicable state securities laws or an exemption from such registration is available.
