Upon completion of a successful listing, PLC would become the first publicly traded decocainized-coca derivative manufacturer & distributor.    

TORONTO, March 27, 2024Power Leaves Corp. (“PLC”), a manufacturer and international distributor of decocainized coca leaf derivatives, is pleased to announce that it has entered into a non-binding letter of intent (the “LOI“) with Rockshield Acquisition Corp. (“Rockshield“). The LOI outlines key terms under which Rockshield will acquire all of the issued and outstanding securities of PLC through a reverse takeover transaction (the “Proposed Transaction”).

Upon completion of the Proposed Transaction, the combined entity (the “Resulting Issuer”) will continue to carry on the business of PLC, under the name “Power Leaves Corp.” or such other name as may be approved by the board of directors of the Resulting Issuer. In connection with the Proposed Transaction, the Resulting Issuer will apply to list its common shares on Cboe Canada (the “Exchange”) by way of a direct listing.

“On the back of a strong 2023 where we generated our first revenues and made significant inroads on key business development initiatives, the initiation of the public listing process is the next critical step in PLC’s growth and delivering on our commitments to shareholders,” Pat McCutcheon, Co-Founder & CEO of PLC commented. “This transaction and public listing offer a cost-effective path towards securing the growth capital needed to accelerate the expansion of our coca extract, essence, and fertilizer businesses, and ultimately grow shareholder value for the long term.”

Following completion of the Proposed Transaction and a successful direct listing on Cboe Canada, PLC currently intends to apply to list the Resulting Issuer on Cboe Europe and on Cboe US.

“We made the strategic decision to list PLC on Cboe Canada as it offered streamlined access to the entire Cboe Global Markets network of international equities exchanges. We believe this increased exposure to investors globally and future capabilities to intra-list on Cboe US and Cboe Europe can substantially increase the profile and growth of PLC’s three core business lines,” continued Pat McCutcheon. “Upon a successful public listing, we will be the first company to offer investors the ability to invest in the future of decocainized coca derivatives as we unlock the coca plants’ incredible potential.”

Summary of the Proposed Transaction

Rockshield and PLC have entered into the LOI, which sets out certain terms and conditions pursuant to which the Proposed Transaction will be completed. The Proposed Transaction is subject to the parties successfully entering into a definitive agreement (the “Definitive Agreement”) in respect of the Proposed Transaction.

In connection with the Proposed Transaction, each outstanding security of PLC shall be exchanged for an equivalent security of the Resulting Issuer and each common share of Rockshield (each a “Rockshield Share”) shall, prior to the consummation of the Proposed Transaction, be consolidated or split, as applicable, based on a ratio to be determined immediately prior to the closing of the Proposed Transaction (“Closing”). The Closing is expected to occur before the end of June 2024.

The LOI also contemplates other material conditions precedent to Closing, including Rockshield having no indebtedness and not less than US$2,000,000 in cash, net of any expenses accrued in connection with the Proposed Transaction, and the completion of an additional financing by PLC (the “Concurrent Financing”).

Resulting Issuer Board of Directors

It is anticipated that the board of directors of the Resulting Issuer shall be reconstituted to consist of five directors, all of whom shall be the nominees of PLC.

Escrow Conditions

In addition to the escrow requirements of the Exchange and applicable securities laws, upon Closing, the following shares of the Resulting Issuer shall also be subject to the following lock-up conditions:

  • PLC founders, principals and other shareholders who acquired their PLC shares at a price per share below certain thresholds shall agree to a 12-month lock-up on all such shares; and
  • Rockshield shareholders shall agree to an 18-month lock-up on all Rockshield Shares; provided, however, that any Rockshield Shares acquired at a price equal to or greater than the equivalent of the Concurrent Financing price shall be excluded from such lock-up agreement.
