ORIGEN CLOSES SECOND-LAST TRANCHE OF FINANCING
Origen Resources Inc. has closed a further tranche of its private placement. The company issued 1,064,000 units under this most recent tranche, at a price of 25 cents per unit, for gross proceeds of $266,000. Each unit consists of one common share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant, with each full warrant being exercisable for a period of 18 months at 40 cents.
All securities issued under the private placement are subject to a hold period of four months and a day from the date of issuance.
A company controlled by a director of Origen participated in the private placement. This participation by an insider in the offering constitutes a related-party transaction as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 (Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions). However, the company considers such participation would be exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as the fair market value of the units subscribed for by the insider and the consideration for the unit paid by such insider do not exceed 25 per cent of the company's market capitalization.
The company also announces that it has retained the services of Toronto-based Proconsul Capital Ltd., an investor relations and marketing consulting service company. Proconsul, and its principal Andreas Curkovic, provides investor relations services to Canadian publicly listed companies. Proconsul will focus on broadening Origen's relationships in the investment community. Under the terms of the agreement, Proconsul will receive $5,000 per month and will be eligible to receive incentive stock options in accordance with the terms of the company's stock option plan and Canadian Securities Exchange policies.
