VANCOUVER, BC, July 10, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Jones Soda Co.

Each Unit will be composed of: (i) one (1) common share in the capital of the Company (each, a "Common Share"); and (ii) one‐half (1/2) of one detachable share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each whole Warrant will be exercisable into one Common Share at a price of US$0.50 per share for a period of 24 months from the date of issuance, subject to the Company having the right at its option to accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants to the date that is 30 days following delivery of a notice of acceleration to holders of Warrants if at any time the closing price of the Common Shares on the OTCQB or other stock exchange or over-the-counter market in the United States or on the Canadian Securities Exchange (the "CSE") exceeds US$0.80 (for the purposes of the CSE, the equivalent in Canadian dollars based on the daily exchange rate published by the Bank of Canada) for a period of five (5) consecutive trading days (the "Warrant Exercise Period"). Each whole Warrant may be exercised anytime during the Warrant Exercise Period upon the voluntary election to exercise by the Warrant holder.

The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering to support growth and for general corporate purposes.

The Units are being offered and sold in the Offering (i) to persons in the "United States" or to "U.S. persons" (as such terms are defined in Regulation S under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "U.S. Securities Act")), who qualify as  accredited investors in reliance on Rule 506(b) of Regulation D under the U.S. Securities Act (the "U.S. Financing"), and (i) outside the United States to non-U.S. persons in reliance on Regulation S under the U.S. Securities Act. The portion of the Offering intended to be conducted outside of the United States is expected to include an offering to eligible investors in each of the Provinces and Territories of Canada except Quebec pursuant to the listed issuer financing exemption under Part 5A of National Instrument 45-106 - Prospectus Exemptions (the "LIFE Offering"). There is no minimum amount of Units to be issued pursuant to either the U.S. Financing or LIFE Offering but the Offering is for aggregate gross proceeds of $3M million.  None of the Common Shares, Warrants or Common Shares issuable upon the exercise of such Warrants will be subject to any hold period under Canadian securities laws, but all such securities will be considered restricted securities under the U.S. Securities Act.

The Company expects to close the Offering on or about July 18, 2024, and is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals including the approval of the CSE.

The Common Shares and Warrants being offering and sold in the Offering will not be registered under the U.S. Securities Act at the time of the Offering, however, such securities will include registration rights. None of the Common Shares, Warrants, or Common Shares issuable upon exercise of the Warrants may be offered or sold in the United States absent registration under the U.S. Securities Act and all applicable state securities laws or an applicable exemption from such registration requirements.
