Lexaria to Receive $4.7 Million Gross Proceeds in Warrant Exercise and Issuance

KELOWNA, BC / ACCESSWIRE / April 30, 2024 / Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (NASDAQ:LEXX)(NASDAQ:LEXXW) (the "Company" or "Lexaria"), a global innovator in drug delivery platforms announces it has entered into a warrant exercise agreement with an existing accredited investor to exercise in full certain existing warrants to purchase an aggregate 2,917,032 shares of its common stock, as to 1,618,330 warrants exercised at an exercise price of $0.97 per share, and 1,298,702 warrants exercised at $2.185 per share, originally issued in October 2023 and February 2024, respectively.

With this exercise, there are zero remaining warrants exercisable at $0.97 and 259,741 warrants unexercised at $2.185. The gross proceeds to the Company from the exercise are expected to be approximately $4.7 million, prior to deducting estimated offering expenses.

In consideration for the early exercise of the existing warrants for cash, and the payment of $0.125 per each new warrant, aggregating $364,629 in proceeds to the Company, Lexaria is issuing 2,917,032 new warrants, each new warrant entitling the holder to purchase one (1) new share of common stock. The new warrants are immediately exercisable at an exercise price of $4.75 per share, and will expire on February 16, 2029 if not exercised before that date.

The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the offering for working capital and other general corporate purposes.

"These additional cash proceeds of $4.7 million further extend Lexaria's operational runway deep into 2025 and allow us to execute our 2024 plans at an aggressive pace," said Chris Bunka, CEO of Lexaria. "The exercise price of the replacement warrants, at $4.75, is a significant premium to current market prices and, in our opinion, a sign of confidence in Lexaria's future."

The new warrants described above are being offered in a private placement under Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), and Regulation D promulgated thereunder and, along with the shares of Class A common stock issuable upon exercise of the new warrants, have not been registered under the Securities Act, or applicable state securities laws. Accordingly, the new warrants issued in the private placement and the shares of common stock underlying the new warrants may not be offered or sold in the United States except pursuant to an effective registration statement or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and such applicable state securities laws. The Company has agreed to file a registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission covering the resale of the shares of common stock issuable upon the exercise of the new warrants.

In connection with the issuance of the new warrants, Lexaria is required to provide H.C. Wainwright with its tail consideration of 6% of the cash proceeds received for the warrant exercises and issuance of the new warrants and to issue 102,097 warrants with an exercise price of $5.9375 per share and having the same terms and conditions as the new warrants.
