Toronto-based Braingrid provides grow analytics by capturing real-time data using its technology platform to increase revenues, reduce costs, risks and improve yield for cannabis-licensed producers.

Under the terms of the agreement, the European fund will subscribe for up to $5.1 million of senior unsecured convertible debentures in up to 18 separate closings during a three-year period. The debentures will be issued with accompanying warrants, which are exercisable at a closing price to be determined.

The first closing of $850,000 debentures is expected to close shortly, Braingrid said in a statement.

The debentures will not generate interest and have a maturity date of 12 months following the date of issue. Subject to regulatory compliance, the debentures will be automatically converted into shares in of Braingrid at the aggregate amount of the debentures being converted divided by the applicable conversion price based on the market price.

The debentures may also be reimbursed in cash prior to maturity at a 20% premium at the option of Braingrid.

"This three-year financing with Alpha Blue assures Braingrid will be able to execute on its growth strategy knowing the funds will be available when required,” said Michael Kadonoff, Braingrid’s CEO. “There are also numerous companies in all segments of the market which are available for integrations that will augment revenue growth."
