Vancouver, BC – November 25, 2019 – Broadway Gold Mining Ltd. (“Broadway” or the “Company”) (TSXV:BRD) (OTC:BDWYF) and Mind Medicine, Inc. (“MindMed”) are pleased to announce that MindMed has signed an engagement letter with Canaccord Genuity Corp. (“Canaccord”) pursuant to which MindMed will complete a brokered private placement financing (the “Brokered Private Placement”) of up to C$15 million in Class D non-voting common shares (the “Shares”) at a price of C$0.33 per Share.
MindMed has entered into an engagement agreement with Canaccord to act as the agent in connection with the Brokered Private Placement on a commercially reasonable efforts basis. The Brokered Private Placement is expected to close by December 12, 2019. Under the engagement agreement, MindMed has agreed to pay to Canaccord a cash commission equal to 7.0% of the gross proceeds raised in the Brokered Private Placement. In addition, Canaccord will receive broker compensation units (the “Broker Units”) equal to 7.0% of the number of the Shares sold pursuant to the Brokered Private Placement, which Broker Units shall be exercisable for a period of 12 months from the completion of the Arrangement (defined below).
As previously announced, Broadway and MindMed have entered into a definitive arrangement agreement (the “Arrangement Agreement”) that will, if fully implemented, result in a reverse take-over of Broadway by the current shareholders of MindMed by way of plan of arrangement under the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia) (the “Arrangement”). The Arrangement is anticipated to close in the first quarter of 2020. The Arrangement Agreement is available on www.SEDAR.com under Broadway’s profile.
Mind Medicine, Inc. is a neuro-pharmaceutical company that discovers, develops and deploys psychedelic inspired medicines to improve health, promote wellness and alleviate suffering. The company’s immediate priority is to address the opioid crisis by developing a non-hallucinogenic version of the psychedelic ibogaine. The MindMed executive team brings extensive biopharmaceutical industry experience to this ground-breaking approach to the development of next-generation psychedelic medicines.
Until execution of the Arrangement Agreement, Broadway was focused on the exploration and development of the Broadway and Madison mine and the delineation of the porphyry source of their mineralization; the Company’s right, title and interest to the Broadway and Madison mine – 450 acres of land, a 192 acre ranch, buildings, mine equipment and fixtures, 6 patented, 35 unpatented mineral claims, and mineral rights to a four-square-mile property in the Butte-Anaconda region of Montana, a porphyry-based mining district – will be spun-out to Broadway’s current shareholders as a result of the Arrangement. Assuming completion of the Arrangement, Broadway will have acquired the business of MindMed, will be a developer and distributor of the 18-MC Program for treatment of opioid and other forms of substance addiction, and will be a Life Sciences Issuer under the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange.
