増田俊男氏「そば屋の出前」に終止符を打つ Arius3D

佐藤博史弁護士が見当違いな策謀をめぐらせ、防ごうとしてきた警視庁の強制捜査を『サンラ・ワールド社』が受けてから2週間が経ったきょう17日(現地時間16日)、カナダのIT企業『アリウス3D社』の上場(上場会社と合併するCPCという制度による)手続きが完了した。

増田俊男氏とサンラ・ワールド社は、'00年からアリウス3D社の未公開株への投資を名目としたファンドを運営。「もうすぐ上場する」と宣伝し、日本の投資家から約50億円の資金を集めてきたが、お流れになったり、延期された〝上場話〟は数知れず。そんな「そば屋の出前」状態がつづくこと10年。「騙された!」と怒り心頭に発した投資家が、刑事告訴するなどのトラブルが相次いでいた。

ところが皮肉にも、警視庁が強制捜査に入る前日の今月2日、TSX-V(トロント・ベンチャー証券取引所)がアリウス3D社の上場(合併)の仮承認を発表する。捜査の被疑事実は、'07年秋に行われたアリウス3D社の株式売買の無登録営業(金融商品取引法違反)の疑いだった。

アリウス3D社の大株主であるファンド・マネージャーの増田氏らの警察沙汰が、カナダでも英字版の新聞で報じられたことから、一時はTSX-Vが承認を取り消すことも予想された。しかし、一旦は押収されたパスポートを警視庁から返してもらい、増田氏はトロントへ飛ぶ。そして、アリウス3D社の社長宅に居候しながら現地で待機。奇跡的に10年越しの「そば屋の出前」に終止符を打った。

Arius3D Corp. (Formerly Rebecca Capital Inc.) Closes Qualifying Transaction

TORONTO, ONTARIO, Feb 16, 2010 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- Rebecca Capital Inc. /quotes/comstock/11v!reb.p (CA:REB.P 0.30, 0.00, 0.00%) (the "Resulting Issuer"), a capital pool company (a "CPC"), today announced that it has closed its previously announced planned acquisition of all of the securities of Arius3D Inc. ("Arius3D") and has filed Articles of Amendment changing its name to "Arius3D Corp.". This acquisition constitutes Arius3D Corp.'s qualifying transaction pursuant to the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange Inc. (the "Exchange"). Upon the Exchange's issuance of its final exchange bulletin approving the qualifying transaction (the "Final Exchange Bulletin"), Arius3D Corp. will cease to be a CPC and its trading symbol on the Exchange will change to "LZR".

Arius3D Corp. completed the acquisition of Arius3D, a company that creates imaging solutions allowing organizations to capture and share unique physical objects in 3D digital form, through the merger of a wholly-owned subsidiary of Arius3D Corp. with Arius3D and the issuance (and/or the reservation for issuance) by the Resulting Issuer of 101,845,712 common shares from treasury ("RI Shares"). The previous shareholders of Arius3D received 0.5582 of a RI Share in exchange for one share of common stock of Arius3D and for each Arius3D common share issuable upon the conversion of convertible securities of Arius3D, each holder thereof will receive one RI Share. The total deemed value of the transaction is $19,524,114.

Arius3D Corp. also announced the closing of a concurrent debt private placement offering (the "Offering") with the issue of 8% unsecured convertible debentures (the "Debentures"), raising aggregate gross proceeds of $2,880,050. The Debentures mature on December 31, 2014 and are convertible into RI Shares at the option of the holder prior to maturity at a price of $0.18 per RI Share. One warrant was issued to each holder of Debentures for each RI Share that would have been issued had such holder's Debentures been fully converted in accordance with the terms thereof. Each such warrant entitles the holder thereof the purchase one RI Share at a price of $0.30 per share and expiring on December 31, 2014.

Loewen, Ondaatje, McCutcheon Limited and Global Energy Horizon Corporation (collectively the "Agents") were paid a cash commission of $201,604.00 and granted 1,120,019 warrants in connection with their services pursuant to the Offering. Each such warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one RI Share for a period of 2 years from the date of issuance at a price of $0.18 per share. Global Energy Horizon Corporation was also granted 3,750,000 warrants in connection with other business advisory services provided, with each such warrant entitling the holder thereof to purchase one RI Share for a period of 5 years from the date of issuance at a price of $0.18 per share.

The Resulting Issuer will use the net proceeds from the Offering primarily to further its business objectives, including creating a significant number of 3D colour images for distribution by a commercial Arius3D Image Library, establishing an international network of service bureaus offering customers 3d colour imaging services and for other general working capital purposes.

The board of directors of the Resulting Issuer has approved changing its financial year end date from May 31st to December 31st. The Resulting Issuer will report the fiscal year May 31, 2009 to May 31, 2010, and then report a seven-month short fiscal year from May 31, 2010 to December 31, 2010. Thereafter, the Resulting Issuer will report from January 1st to December 31st with interims at March 31st, June 30th, and September 30th.

With the completion of the qualifying transaction the management of the Resulting Issuer will be comprised of: Brian Mori, President & Chief Executive Officer and a director of Arius3D, who assumes the position of President & Chief Executive Officer of the Resulting Issuer, and James McGlone, Chief Financial Officer and a director of Arius3D, who assumes the position of Chief Financial Officer and Corporate Secretary of the Resulting Issuer, in both cases each succeeding David Beutel, who held the position of President, Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer and Secretary of the capital pool company.

The Resulting Issuer's Board of Directors now comprises: David Beutel, Paul Little, Brian Mori, Joseph Waechter and John Wood. The Board of Directors would like to thank Messrs. Gary McDonald and David Campbell, who have resigned from their positions on the Resulting Issuer's Board of Directors, for their ongoing dedication to this transaction.

"The Exchange's CPC program has proved to be advantageous in achieving our financing objectives," said Mr. Mori. "With Arius3D on a solid financial footing, the company can focus on meeting our business objectives and on our product development efforts."

"Completing this transaction in a time of market turbulence is an indication of the quality of the team involved in our transaction and the exceptional support we have had," said Mr. Beutel.

Upon the issuance of the Final Exchange Bulletin, the Resulting Issuer share capital will be comprised of the following (including any securities reserved for issuance subject to Exchange approval):

--  110,862,212 common shares;
--  62,953,258 warrants; and
--  17,852,835 incentive stock options,

of which 73,068,745 common shares, 22,688,474 warrants and 4,150,000 incentive stock options are held in escrow in accordance with the policies of the Exchange. A total of 4,399,000 common shares are subject to a one year hold with 20% of the common shares being released on the date of the Final Exchange Bulletin and 20% every three months thereafter. Convertible debentures in the aggregate principal amount of $2,880,050 are subject to a four month hold with 20% of the aggregate principal of the convertible debentures being released on the date of the Final Exchange Bulletin and 20% each month thereafter. A total of 6,621,222 warrants are also subject to a four month hold with 20% of the aggregate principal of the convertible debentures being released on the date of the Final Exchange Bulletin and 20% each month thereafter.

Additional information concerning the qualifying transaction may be found in Rebecca Capital Inc.'s Filing Statement dated January 29, 2010, on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

ようやくの上場まことにおめでとうございます。

わざわざ上場の用事でトロントに出向いたことで、「有価証券販売の無登録営業」事実はますます固いものになったと言えます。もう「夢を売っていた」とか「藁シベを売っていた」という言い逃れはできません。自ら容疑の補強をしてくれるとはお目出度いことですから、警察も目を細めて「今日のところは特別に」とパスポートを返してくれたのでしょう。

土壇場で上場が遅れた理由に笑いました。創業者で前社長のB氏が、自分の持ち株を早く売りたいから、売却制限を外してくれと騒いだからだとか。

本当に何十倍に値上がりするなら、当然、応分の時間がかかります。創業者たるものが寸分も「待てない」とは? やっとの上場を可能にした増資金を「食ってしまいたい」とは、これいかに?

ともあれ、一般には評価の難しい未公開株に市場で値が付くわけですので、客観的に損害額が査定できるようになります。その点、警察としても歓迎するところでしょう。

気になる文言がありました。

「The previous shareholders of Arius3D received 0.5582 of a RI Share in exchange for one share of common stock of Arius3D」

Arius3Dの従前の株主は普通株式1株と引き換えに0.5582RI Share を受けた・・・と訳すのでしょうか。
1対1ではないのですね。
