“We are pleased to announce that principals of Satori Capital, a prominent U.S.-based investment firm founded on the principles of conscious capitalism, will be leading Hapbee’s financing,” said Yona Shtern, CEO of Hapbee. “As we accelerate our growth within the wearables wellness sector, it is integral to have stakeholders who understand and believe in the long-term vision for the Company. Satori Capital is led by principals who have built and managed successful companies and multi-billion-dollar investment firms. Their guidance has helped steer leadership teams toward long-term value creation for all stakeholders. I look forward to closing the Offering and making significant inroads into the wearables market in 2022.”
“We are thrilled to partner with Hapbee's talented leadership team to bring this innovative and impactful technology to even more users," said Satori co-founder Randy Eisenman. “We are grateful for the opportunity to closely align with such a mission-driven business whose products truly enrich people’s lives. While Hapbee is clearly off to an impressive start, we believe the best is yet to come for the Company and its stakeholders.”
Additionally, the Company is pleased to report that members of Hapbee’s board of directors will also be participating in the Offering.
Each Unit will consist of one subordinated voting share in the capital of the Company (each, a “Share”) and one subordinated voting share purchase warrant (each, a “Warrant”), with each Warrant entitling the holder thereof to acquire one Share for a period of three years from the closing of the Offering at an exercise price of $0.50 per Share.
The Warrants contain an acceleration option that states that if the Shares trade at or above $1.00 on the TSX Venture Exchange (the “Exchange”) for a period of 10 consecutive trading days after expiry of the four month hold period, then the Company may issue a news release accelerating the expiry date to 60 days after the filing of such news release.

The Company may complete multiple closings of the Offering, as subscriptions are received. Each closing is subject to a number of conditions, including receipt of all necessary corporate and regulatory approvals.
