|Feb 28|magazine66 min read

TORONTO, Feb. 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Mind Medicine (MindMed) Inc. (the "Company" or "MindMed") (formerly Broadway Gold Mining Ltd. ("Broadway")) is pleased to announce the completion of its previously announced reverse takeover transaction (the "Transaction") by the shareholders of Mind Medicine, Inc. ("MindMed PrivateCo") by way of plan of arrangement under the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia) (the "Arrangement") pursuant to the terms of an arrangement agreement entered into on October 15, 2019, as amended (the "Arrangement Agreement") between the Company, Madison Metals Inc. ("SpinCo"), Broadway Delaware Subco Inc. ("Delaware Subco") and MindMed PrivateCo.

The Arrangement

Name Change, Consolidation and Change in Share Classes

Immediately prior to the closing of the Transaction and in connection with the Arrangement, Broadway: (a) consolidated its common shares on an eight-for-one basis (the "Consolidation"), (b) changed its name to "Mind Medicine (MindMed) Inc." (the "Name Change"), (c) reclassified its post-Consolidation common shares as subordinate voting shares (the "Subordinate Voting Shares") and (d) created a new class of multiple voting shares (the "Multiple Voting Shares") ((c) and (d) together, the "Share Capital Amendment"). The Company's registered shareholders are entitled to receive replacement share certificates evidencing the Consolidation, Name Change and Share Capital Amendment (the "Replacement Shares").

Merger of Mind Medicine Inc. and Delaware Subco

Further to the terms of the Arrangement, Delaware Subco merged with MindMed PrivateCo under the corporate laws of Delaware. All outstanding Class B common shares ("Class B Shares"), Class C common shares ("Class C Shares") and Class D common shares ("Class D Shares") of MindMed PrivateCo were exchanged for Class A common shares of MindMed PrivateCo ("Class A Shares"), immediately following which all Class A Shares were exchanged, on a one-for-one basis (the "Exchange Ratio"), for Multiple Voting Shares or Subordinate Voting Shares of the Company ("Resulting Issuer Shares") on a Consolidated (as defined below) basis. Such Class A Shares were then cancelled pursuant to the Arrangement, and MindMed PrivateCo issued 1,000 shares of Common Stock to the Company as consideration for issuing the Resulting Issuer Shares to the (former) MindMed PrivateCo shareholders. On closing, Savant Addiction Medicine, LLC, received Multiple Voting Shares for each share of MindMed PrivateCo that it held immediately prior to completion of the Transaction, and is currently the only holder of Multiple Voting Shares. All other former MindMed PrivateCo shareholders received Subordinate Voting Shares. Additionally, all convertible securities of MindMed PrivateCo were exchanged for convertible securities of the Company on the basis of the Exchange Ratio.

As part of the Arrangement, the Spin-Out Transaction (further described below) was also completed.

Concurrent Financings

MindMed PrivateCo also completed its previously announced brokered private placement financing, in multiple tranches, of Class D Shares at a price of CAD$0.33 per share (the "Brokered Private Placement") for aggregate gross proceeds of CAD$3,812,416, as well as a concurrent non-brokered private placement financing of Class D Shares at a price of CAD$0.33 per share (the "Non-Brokered Private Placement" and, together with the Brokered Private Placement, the "MindMed PrivateCo Private Placements") for aggregate gross proceeds of CAD$28,232,252. The aggregate gross proceeds of the MindMed PrivateCo Private Placements was CAD$32,044,668.

In connection with the Brokered Private Placement, Canaccord Genuity Corp. ("Canaccord") received an aggregate cash fee of CAD$266,869 and was issued an aggregate of 808,695 broker warrants (the "Broker Warrants").  Each Broker Warrant is exercisable to acquire one Class D Share at a price of CAD$0.33 expiring 12 months from the date on which the Resulting Issuer Shares are listed on a Canadian exchange (see Neo Listing Approval below). Additionally, MindMed PrivateCo also paid a cash advisory fee of CAD$432,053 and issued 5,148,659 advisory warrants (the "Advisory Warrants") to Canaccord, and paid a cash advisory fee of US$300,000 and issued 840,000 Advisory Warrants to Eight Capital (in relation to a non-Canadian investor), in conjunction with the Non-Brokered Private Placement. Each Advisory Warrant is exercisable on the same terms and conditions as the Broker Warrants.

Upon completion of the Transaction, the Broker Warrants and Advisory Warrants were automatically exchanged for compensation warrants of the Company ("Resulting Issuer Compensation Warrants").

The net proceeds of the Brokered Private Placement are expected to be used by the Company for further non-clinical and clinical development of 18-MC in addiction with an initial focus on the opioid crisis, MindMed's LSD micro-dosing program, expanding its platform of psychedelic inspired medicines and general operations.

Consolidated Capitalization

After giving effect to the Transaction there are: (i) 255,431,252 Resulting Issuer Shares issued and outstanding (on a non-diluted basis, which number assumes for the purposes of calculation that the 550,000 Multiple Voting Shares held by Savant Addiction Medicine are treated as subordinate voting shares); (ii) 387,563 Resulting Issuer Warrants outstanding; (iii) 381,250 options to purchase Resulting Issuer Shares outstanding; and (iv) 5,957,354 Resulting Issuer Compensation Warrants outstanding.

Escrowed Securities

In connection with the closing of the Transaction, an aggregate of 90,720,000 Resulting Issuer Shares held by "principals" of the Company (which number assumes for the purposes of calculation that the 550,000 Multiple Voting Shares held by Savant Addiction Medicine, LLC are treated as subordinate voting shares) were placed into escrow pursuant to escrow agreements whereby, subject to any applicable lock-up agreement described below, 25% of such escrowed shares will be released on the date of listing the Resulting Issuer Shares on the Neo Exchange (anticipated to be on or about March 3, 2020; the "Listing Date"), and an additional 25% will be released on each of September 3, 2020, March 3, 2021 and September 3, 2021.  An additional 4,200,000 Resulting Issuer Shares are subject to an escrow, evidenced by legended stock, with the same release provisions as the escrow agreements described above.

The Spin-Out Transaction consisted of the transfer of all of the shares of Broadway Montana and any related assets and liabilities in connection with the Madison Project to SpinCo (the "Transferred Assets"). SpinCo assumed all liabilities associated with Broadway's mineral exploration and development business as conducted prior to the completion of the Arrangement.
