Zenabis Sees Partial Conversion of Debt at Heavily Reduced Rate

Zenabis Global (TSX: ZENA) appears to be doing what it can to bolster its dire financial situation. This morning, the firm announced the early conversion of certain convertible notes at a heavily reduced conversion price as a means of releasing some pressure on the heavily negative working capital of the company.

In total, Zenabis has seen $6,040,176 of its secured convertible notes converted to common shares at a price of $0.155 per share, but it hasn’t come cheap. In total, 38,968,874 common shares were issued in conjunction with the reduced conversion price. The company has also issued a total of 20,129,338 common share purchase warrants, which have an exercise price of $0.20 and a term of three years.

In an attempt to further reduce capital strains currently faced by the company, Zenabis has also offered the note holders the option to convert a further $4,064,558 at the lowered exercise price over the next 30 days. The company has provided the same warrant incentive as well as a means to entice the conversion of the debt. If it were to be accepted, a further 26,222,947 common shares would be issued to the note holders, along with an additional 1,260,260 common share purchase warrants.

As it currently stands, Zenabis Global still owes an aggregate of $11,364,783 to the secured convertible note holders. The debt has been extremely costly for Zenabis, who issued the debt in October 2018, for aggregate proceeds of $27.5 million, with a conversion price of $2.52. The company has continually renegotiated with the debt holders as the equity has seen its value fall through the floor. The debt is believed to be due in June 2020.

Zenabis Global last traded at $0.18 on the TSX.
