BOULDER and BRITISH COLUMBIA — Charlotte’s Web Holdings Inc. filed two Form Ds in relation to their Canadian IPO.
The CBD company, which started in Boulder, filed one Form D with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission for a little more than $418 million and the second for about $4.2 million.
While owning a building seems like something every successful business should do, that’s not always the case. For many companies, it makes more sense to continue leasing space, freeing up time and capital that can be better utilized in other ways.
The first, CFO Richard Mohr told BizWest, is related to a merger agreement of a Colorado corporation into a Delaware corporation. The new entity is Charlotte’s Web Inc. a wholly owned subsidiary of Charlotte’s Web Holding Inc., the publicly traded British Columbia entity.
The second filing is for a private placement in the United States, as U.S.-based investors could not participate in the Canadian IPO. Mohr said 22 shareholders together raised $4.2 million in the private placement.
Mohr added that Charlotte’s Web will be continuing its presence in Boulder.
He said on Aug. 30, the company completed its IPO of more than $115 million (Canadian). It can be found on the Canadian Securities Exchange under the ticker CWEB.
