AZINCOURT ENERGY ANNOUNCES FULLY SUBSCRIBED C$7.6 MILLION NON-BROKERED PRIVATE PLACEMENT
Azincourt Energy Corp. has arranged a fully subscribed non-brokered private placement for aggregate gross proceeds to the company of approximately $7.6-million from the sale of the following:
- Units of the company at a price of seven cents per unit;
- Flow-through units of the company at a price of 7.5 cents per FT unit;
FT units to be sold to charitable buyers at a price of 9.3 cents per charity FT unit.
Red Cloud Securities Inc. is acting as a finder in connection with the offering and the majority of the financing is being placed with institutional investors.
Each unit will comprise one common share of the company and one common share purchase warrant. Each FT unit and charity FT unit will consist of one common share of the company to be issued as a flow-through share within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada) and one warrant. Each warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one common share of the company at a price of 10 cents for a period of 36 months following the closing date of the offering.
The gross proceeds from the issuance of the FT shares will be used for Canadian exploration expenses (within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada)), which will be renounced with an effective date no later than Dec. 31, 2021, to the purchasers of the FT shares in an aggregate amount not less than the gross proceeds raised from the issue of the FT shares. If the qualifying expenditures are reduced by the Canada Revenue Agency, the company will indemnify each subscriber of FT shares for any additional taxes payable by such subscriber as a result of the company's failure to renounce the qualifying expenditures. It is expected that expenditures will largely be focused on the continued development of the East Preston uranium project located in the western Athabasca basin in Saskatchewan, Canada.
The net proceeds from the sale of units will be used for working capital and general corporate purposes.
The closing of the offering is expected to occur on or about Sept. 29, 2021, and is subject to receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals, including the TSX Venture Exchange. Finder's fees will be payable in accordance with the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange. All securities issuable in connection with the offering will be subject to a hold period of four months and one day in accordance with applicable securities laws.
