Bitfarms Amends Terms of Outstanding Lender Warrants
TORONTO & BROSSARD, Québec--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Bitfarms Ltd. (“Bitfarms”, or the “Company”) (TSXV:BITF), is pleased to announce that it has reached an agreement with its credit facility lender, DC BFL SPV LLC (an affiliate of Dominion Capital LLC (“Dominion”, or the “Lender”)), and has received conditional approval from the TSX Venture Exchange to amend certain terms of its issued and outstanding warrants.
Pursuant to the terms of the loan agreement with Dominion, Bitfarms issued the Lender 1,666,667 warrants for each loan tranche drawn, for a total of 6,666,668 warrants, exercisable into common shares of the Company at an exercise price of US$0.40 per share (the “Exercise Price”). As described in the Company’s most recent interim financial results and management’s discussion and analysis, the warrants contain an anti-dilutive feature which results in a liability classification that is measured at fair value through profit or loss for financial reporting purposes, potentially resulting in non-cash charges against the Company’s reported income.
Pursuant to an amending agreement (the, “Warrant Amendment”) with the Lender, and in exchange for the Company agreeing not to issue common shares below the Exercise Price of US$0.40 during the term of the loan with the Lender, the parties have agreed to remove the anti-dilution provision from the warrants. This will result in the warrant liability being remeasured at fair value through profit or loss as of the effective date of the Warrant Amendment. Subsequent to the effective date of the Warrant Amendment, the warrants will be classified as equity with no further remeasurement at fair value through profit or loss at each reporting date.
