VANCOUVER, BC, Feb. 9, 2022 /CNW/ - H2 Ventures 1 Inc. ("H2" or the "Corporation") is pleased to announce that it completed an initial public offering ("IPO") of 50,000,000 common shares of the Corporation (the "Common Shares") at a price of $0.10 per Common Share for gross proceeds of $5,000,000 and is now listed on the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange"). The Common Shares were listed on the Exchange at market open on February 9, 2022, and trading was immediately halted pending closing of the IPO. The halt is expected to be lifted and trading of the Common Shares is expected to resume on or about February 11, 2022 under the symbol "HO.P". When combined with the cash proceeds raised prior to the IPO, the Corporation has raised total gross proceeds of $5,560,000 and has a total of 61,200,000 Common Shares issued and outstanding, of which 11,200,000 are currently held in escrow pursuant to the policies of the Exchange.

The net proceeds of the offering, together with the proceeds from prior sales, will be used by the Corporation to identify and evaluate assets or businesses for acquisition with a view to completing a "Qualifying Transaction" in the hydrogen, fuel cell and clean energy sectors under the Exchange's capital pool company program ("CPC Program").

Canaccord Genuity Corp. (the "Agent") acted as the sole agent and sole bookrunner for the IPO. In connection with the offering, the Agent received a cash commission equal to 8% of the gross proceeds of the Offering and an administration fee. In addition, the Corporation granted to the Agent non-transferable options to acquire up to an aggregate of 4,000,000 Common Shares (the "Agent's Options"). Each Agent's Option is exercisable to acquire one Common Share at an exercise price of $0.10 for a period of 24 months following the completion of the offering.

The prospectus filed in connection with the IPO also qualified previously granted options to certain directors and officers of the Corporation exercisable to acquire up to an aggregate of 1,000,000 Common Shares (the "D&O Options"). Each D&O Option is exercisable to acquire one Common Share at an exercise price of $0.05 per Common Share until June 4, 2026.
