VICTORIA, British Columbia: Vecima Networks Inc. (TSX:VCM) (“Vecima” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce a financing of up to C$32,000,000, having received subscription agreements in connection with a brokered private placement of 833,200 subscription receipts of the Company (the “Subscription Receipts”) at a price of C$21.00 per Subscription Receipt (the “Issue Price”) for gross proceeds of C$17,497,200 (the “Offering”), and a concurrent non-brokered private placement (the “Non-Brokered Offering”) with 684739 B.C. Ltd. of 476,190 Subscription Receipts at the Issue Price for gross proceeds of C$9,999,990 million, for aggregate gross proceeds of C$27,497,190 in commitments so far (collectively, the “Financing”). The Financing is expected to close on May 29, 2024. Raymond James Ltd. (“Raymond James”) is acting as sole bookrunner and sole underwriter on the Offering.

Subject to closing, the Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Financing to finance a portion of the previously announced proposed acquisition of the Cable Business assets of Casa Systems, Inc. (“Casa”) and certain of Casa’s subsidiaries (the "Proposed Acquisition"). If the transaction value of the Proposed Acquisition exceeds the proceeds of the Financing, the Company will fund the remainder of the transaction value with cash on hand and potential additional financing, as needed.

Each Subscription Receipt shall, upon satisfaction of the Escrow Release Conditions (as defined below) and without the payment of any additional consideration, automatically convert into one common share of the Company (a "Common Share").

The “Escrow Release Conditions” are, collectively:

  • the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware having approved at a hearing the Bid Procedures Order and Sales Order, all as provided for in the asset purchase agreement among Vecima, Casa and Casa’s subsidiaries, without the occurrence of a Termination Event; and
  • the Corporation and Underwriter having delivered a notice and direction to the Subscription Receipt Agent confirming that the conditions set forth in (i) above have been met or waived.
  • A “Termination Event” includes any of the following: (i) the Escrow Release Conditions and delivery of the notice and direction having not occurred on or before June 30, 2024, (ii) the asset purchase agreement among Vecima, Casa and Casa’s subsidiaries being terminated in accordance with its terms, or (iii) Vecima having advised Computershare Trust Company of Canada (the “Subscription Receipt Agent”) or Raymond James by way of notice, or formally announced to the public by way of press release or otherwise, that it does not intend to proceed with the Proposed Acquisition.

    The Proposed Acquisition is expected to close on June 6, 2024, and the escrow release deadline is 5:00pm (Toronto time) on June 30, 2024.

    The Subscription Receipts will be subject to the four-month hold period in accordance with applicable Canadian securities laws. The Financing is subject to receipt of approval of the Toronto Stock Exchange.
