FILAMENT HEALTH ANNOUNCES SIGNING OF DEFINITIVE AGREEMENT FOR CONVERTIBLE NOTE FINANCING, CLOSING OF C$900,000 NON-BROKERED PRIVATE PLACEMENT FINANCING, FOUNDER-LED NOTE OFFERING AND OTHER UPDATES RELATED TO UPCOMING SPECIAL MEETING AND PROPOSED BUSI

VANCOUVER, BC, Dec. 6, 2023 /CNW/ - Filament Health Corp. (OTCQB: FLHLF) (NEO: FH) (FSE: 7QS) ("Filament" or the "Company"), a clinical?stage natural psychedelic drug development company, is pleased to announce that, further to its press release dated November 23, 2023, the Company has entered into a definitive securities purchase agreement (the "Securities Purchase Agreement") with Helena Global Investment Opportunities 1 Ltd. (the "Note Investor"), an affiliate of Helena Partners Inc., a Cayman-Islands based advisor and investor ("Helena") and 1427702 B.C. Ltd. ("TopCo"), providing for up to USD$14.4 million in funding through the issuance of senior secured convertible notes (the "Notes" and "Note Financing", respectively).

The Note Financing is expected to provide the Company over USD$4.3 million in funding at closing, which is expected to close prior to or concurrently with the closing of the previously announced business combination among Filament, Jupiter Acquisition Corporation (NASDAQ:JAQC) ("Jupiter"), a special purpose acquisition company, and TopCo (such business combination, the "Proposed Business Combination"). 

Additionally and further to its press release dated September 29, 2023, the Company has closed its previously announced private placement financing for gross proceeds of C$900,000 (the "Unit Offering"). 

The Company also announces that TopCo intends to raise net proceeds of USD$900,000 through the issuance of unsecured convertible notes (the "Founder Notes") to certain investors who are affiliates or advisors of Jupiter and Filament, which is expected to occur on or about the closing of the Note Financing (the "Founder Offering").

"We are thrilled to announce entry into the Securities Purchase Agreement, closing of the Unit Offering and the key terms of the Founder Offering, each of which are a testament to investors' confidence in Filament's vision," said Ben Lightburn, Chief Executive Officer at Filament. "I believe these financings mark significant de-risking milestones, propelling us toward the execution of the Proposed Business Combination and our anticipated listing on Nasdaq. At the same time, they greatly reinforce our capacity to move forward with internal operational and drug development programs."

The Company also announces that, in connection with execution of the Note Financing, the Company has amended: (i) that certain Business Combination Agreement, by and among the Company, Jupiter, TopCo and Filament Merger Sub LLC, dated as of July 18, 2023 (as amended by the First Amendment to the Business Combination Agreement, the "Business Combination Agreement"); and (ii) the Plan of Arrangement attached as Exhibit D to the Business Combination Agreement (the "Plan of Arrangement"), in each case in order to include the Notes issued in the Note Financing in the Company's proposed arrangement (the "Arrangement") under Part 9, Division 5 of the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia).

The Company also provides an update regarding the special meeting of its securityholders (the "Filament Securityholders") to be held at the offices of Fasken Martineau DuMoulin LLP at 550 Burrard Street, Suite 2900, Vancouver, British Columbia V6C 0A3 on Monday, December 11, 2023, at 9:30 a.m. (Vancouver time) to approve, among other things, the Arrangement (the "Special Meeting").

Note Financing

Pursuant to the Securities Purchase Agreement, the Note Financing will consist of the issuance of the Notes in the aggregate principal amount of up to USD$14,400,000 to the Note Investor, a Cayman special purpose vehicle managed by Helena.

The Note Financing will be provided in six equal tranches (each a "Tranche") of USD$2.4 million. The first two Tranches under the Note Financing are expected to close in December 2023, immediately prior to the closing of the previously announced Proposed Business Combination.

In connection with the Note Financing, at each Tranche, the Company shall grant the Investors an original issue discount of up to the aggregate amount of USD$240,000 (being an amount equal to 10% of the principal amount of such Tranche) to cover the Note Investor's accounting fees, due diligence fees, monitoring, and/or other transactional costs incurred in connection with the purchase and sale of the Notes issued in connection with each Tranche. As a result of this original issue discount, the Company expects to raise a net principal amount of up to USD$12,960,000 pursuant to the Note Financing.

Following the date of the initial date of closing of the Note Financing, the Company shall pay to the Lead Note Investor a commitment fee in three equal instalments of USD$240,000 (the "Commitment Fee") to be paid on each of the sixtieth day following the initial date of closing of the Note Financing, the seventy-fifth day following the initial date of closing of the Note Financing, and the ninetieth day following the initial date of closing of the Note Financing.  In its sole discretion, in lieu of cash payment of the foregoing amounts, the Note Investor may choose to accept a convertible promissory note or notes substantially in the form of the Notes having an initial principal amount equal to the amount of the Commitment Fee. For greater clarity, all references herein to "Notes" and the conversion of Notes into common shares in the capital of the Company ("Common Shares") shall include the convertible promissory notes issuable in connection with the Commitment Fee and the Common Shares issuable upon valid conversion thereof, respectively.

The Company may draw down on the third Tranche upon a registration statement covering the shares issuable in respect of the securities being declared effective by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"), in addition to a period of eight (8) months having elapsed from the disbursement of the first Tranche. The Company may draw down on the remaining Tranches upon one of the following: (ii) each Note issued in connection with a prior Tranche, except for the Note issued in the most recently completed prior Tranche, shall have either been fully converted or paid; or (iii) the value of the Company's common stock that has traded on the Nasdaq Stock Market since the issuance of any Note under a Tranche that has not yet either been fully converted or paid is greater than 10x (ten times) the amount of the original principal balance of such Tranche proposed to be completed.

The Notes will bear interest at 10% per annum, paid quarterly, and will carry a term of 12 months. Interest not paid in cash shall be payable by increasing the outstanding principal amount (with such increased amount accruing interest as well). At any time following the issuance of a Note, the Note Investor may convert all or a portion of such Note into a number of shares of the Company equal to the amount of indebtedness (comprised of principal and unpaid interest) under such Note being converted divided by the applicable Conversion Price (as defined below). The Conversion Price will be calculated as 90% of the 5-day volume weighted average price immediately preceding the issuance of a conversion notice by the Note Investor, subject to adjustment based on standard anti-dilution provisions (the "Conversion Price").  The minimum "floor" Conversion Price is USD$1.65 (the "Floor Conversion Price"), provided that the Floor Conversion Price for Notes issued in the third Tranche or later Tranches may be adjusted in certain circumstances.

The Company may, at any time and at its sole option, request to redeem the outstanding Notes at 105% of the principal amount thereof upon ten (10) trading days' notice prior to such redemption and during which time the Note Investor shall be entitled to convert the Notes.

For a period of five years from their issuance, the Note Investor shall have the option to purchase a number of Common Shares equivalent to up to 50% of the principal amount of each issued tranche of Notes (the "Note Financing Warrants") divided by USD$1.65. The original exercise price of the Note Financing Warrants shall be USD$12.50 per Common Share (the "Original Exercise Price"), subject to adjustment and anti-dilution rights.

The Note Financing is structured such that the Conversion Price and the Floor Conversion Price will remain the same subsequent to closing of the Proposed Business Combination and the number of Warrant Shares issuable upon exercise of the Note Financing Warrants will remain the same subsequent to closing of the Proposed Business Combination. The Notes and Note Financing Warrants issued in the first two Tranches prior to closing of the Proposed Business Combination are intended to be exchanged pursuant to the Amended Plan of Arrangement (as defined below).

TopCo is a party to the Securities Purchase Agreement for the purpose of assuming Filament's obligations under the Securities Purchase Agreement after completion of the Proposed Business Combination and for the purpose of issuing all Tranches of the Note after the first two tranches.

Completion of the Note Financing is subject to, among other matters, the satisfaction of the conditions negotiated in the Securities Purchase Agreement. Accordingly, there can be no assurance that the Note Financing will be consummated on the terms or timeframe currently contemplated, or at all.

ARC Group Limited acted as financial advisor in connection with the Note Financing.

The Unit Offering

The Unit Offering was completed by way of non-brokered private placement of 5,999,998 units (the "Units") at a price of $0.15 per Unit (the "Issue Price") for gross proceeds of C$900,000.

Each Unit consists of one Common Share and one Common Share purchase warrant (the "Unit Warrants") of the Company, with each such Unit Warrant entitling the holder thereof to purchase one additional Common Share at an exercise price of $0.20, representing a 33% premium to the Issue Price, until December 5, 2026. All Common Shares and Unit Warrants issued under the Unit Offering are subject to a hold period of four months and one day from the date of issuance.

Negev Capital, a psychedelic medical intervention investment fund that has made over 25 investments to date, was the lead investor of the Unit Offering. The net proceeds of the Unit Offering will be used for the initiation of patient recruitment for the advancement of the Company's drug development programs focused on substance use disorders.

The offered securities have not been, nor will they be, registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act") or any state securities laws, and may not be offered or sold to, or for the account or benefit of, any person in the United States or any "U.S person", as such term is defined in Regulation S under the Securities Act, absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration requirements. Offers and sales in the United States will be limited to institutional accredited investors. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of the securities in any state in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.

Founder Offering

In connection with the Founder Offering, TopCo intends to issue the Founder Notes in the aggregate principal amount of USD$1,000,000 to certain investors who are affiliates or advisors of Jupiter and Filament, as well as investors controlled by certain affiliates of Jupiter, including James N. Hauslein (collectively, the "Founders"), on or about the closing of the Note Financing.

TopCo shall grant the Founders an original issue discount of an aggregate amount of USD$100,000 (being an amount equal to 10% of the principal amount of the Founder Notes) to cover the Founders' collective transactional costs incurred in connection with the purchase and sale of the Founder Notes. As a result of this original issue discount, TopCo expects to raise a net principal amount of USD$900,000 pursuant to the Founder Offering.

The Founder Notes will bear interest at 10% per annum, paid quarterly, and will carry a term of 12 months. Interest not paid in cash shall be payable by increasing the outstanding principal amount (with such increased amount accruing interest as well). The Founder Notes are unsecured. At any time following the issuance of a Founder Note, the Founders may convert all or a portion of such Founder Note into a number of shares of TopCo equal to the amount of indebtedness (comprised of principal and unpaid interest) under such Founder Note being converted divided by USD$2.00 per share (the "Founder Note Conversion Price").

TopCo may, at any time and at its sole option, request to redeem the outstanding Founder Notes at 105% of the principal amount thereof upon ten (10) trading days' notice prior to such redemption and during which the Founders shall be entitled to convert the Founder Notes.

For a period of five years from their issuance, the Founders shall have the option to purchase an aggregate number of TopCo Common Shares equivalent to up to 50% of the principal amount of the Founder Notes (the "Founder Note Warrants") at an exercise price of USD$2.00 per TopCo Common Share (the "Founder Exercise Price"), subject to adjustment and anti-dilution rights.

Completion of the Founder Note Financing is subject to, among other matters, the completion of due diligence, the negotiation and execution of definitive agreements providing for the Founder Note Financing, and the satisfaction of the conditions negotiated therein, including necessary corporate and regulatory approvals. Accordingly, there can be no assurance that the parties will successfully negotiate and enter into definitive agreements for the Founder Note Financing, or that the Founder Note Financing will be consummated on the terms or timeframe currently contemplated, or at all.

Amended Plan of Arrangement and Amendment to Business Combination Agreement

The Company also announces that, further to its press release dated July 19, 2023, the Company has entered into the First Amendment to the Business Combination Agreement, such amendment dated effective December 5, 2023 and entered into by the Company and each of the other parties to the Business Combination Agreement (the "Amending Agreement"). The Amending Agreement provides for the replacement of the Plan of Arrangement with the Amended Plan of Arrangement (as defined below), and also amends certain provisions of the Business Combination Agreement to more accurately reflect the closing mechanics of and allocation of consideration in connection with the Proposed Business Combination.

The Company also proposes to adopt an amended Plan of Arrangement (the "Amended Plan of Arrangement") in order to provide for the exchange of the Notes for equivalent secured convertible promissory notes of TopCo in connection with completion of the Arrangement.
