IsoEnergy closes $36.6-million private placement

2023-10-19 13:46 ET - News Release

Mr. Tim Gabruch reports


IsoEnergy Ltd. has completed its previously announced marketed private placement of subscription receipts of the company. The Company issued 8,134,500 Subscription Receipts at a price of $4.50 per Subscription Receipt for aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of $36,605,250. The Offering was led by cornerstone investors NexGen Energy Ltd., Mega Uranium Ltd. and Energy Fuels Inc., with an upsizing of the Offering led by Sachem Cove Partners LLC, and which included the partial exercise of the Agent's option.

The Offering was conducted by a syndicate of agents co-led by Canaccord Genuity Corp., TD Securities Inc. and Eight Capital, and including Haywood Securities Inc., Red Cloud Securities, Cormark Securities Inc., Paradigm Capital, PI Financial Corp., Raymond James Ltd. and SCP Resource Finance LP (collectively, the "Agents").

Each Subscription Receipt will entitle the holder thereof to receive, for no additional consideration and without further action on part of the holder thereof, one common share of IsoEnergy, on or about the date that IsoEnergy's previously announced share-for-share merger with Consolidated Uranium Inc. by way of a court-approved plan of arrangement under the Business Corporations Act (Ontario) (the "Arrangement") is completed.

The net proceeds of the Offering will be used for the Arrangement, exploration and development of the Company's uranium assets, as well as for working capital and general corporate purposes. The net proceeds of the Offering will be held in escrow pending satisfaction of the escrow release conditions, including the satisfaction of the conditions to the closing of the Arrangement and certain other customary conditions.

Pursuant to Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"), the Offering constitutes a "related party transaction" as NexGen Energy Ltd. ("NexGen") has subscribed for Subscription Receipts. These transactions are exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101, as the fair market value of the Subscription Receipts subscribed for NexGen pursuant to the Offering does not exceed 25% of the Company's market capitalization.

In connection with the Offering, the Agents are entitled to a cash commission equal to 6.0% of the aggregate gross proceeds raised from the sale of Subscription Receipts (reduced to 3.0% or nil for subscriptions made by certain specified purchasers of Subscription Receipts, as agreed by the Agents and the Company). At closing of the Offering, the Agents received a cash commission of $293,257.13, representing 50% of the total cash commission payable. The balance of the Agents' cash commission shall be held in escrow pending satisfaction or waiver of the escrow release conditions and is payable upon satisfaction of such escrow release conditions.

The Subscription Receipts were offered by way of private placement pursuant to applicable exemptions from prospectus requirements in each of the provinces of Canada and in such other jurisdictions as may be mutually agreed between the Company and the Agents. The securities issued under the Offering are subject to a four month hold period under applicable Canadian securities laws.
