SOUTH STAR BATTERY METALS ANNOUNCES INCREASE IN NON-BROKERED PRIVATE PLACEMENT
South Star Battery Metals Corp. intends to increase the non-brokered private placement of units previously announced on Oct. 15, 2021, to raise approximately $2.3-million. The increased offering is to accommodate an additional institutional investor. The closing of the offering is subject to customary conditions, including the receipt of all necessary approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
The increased private placement will consist of 20,909,091 units priced at 11 cents per unit. Each unit will consist of one common share and one common share purchase warrant. Each warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one additional common share of the company at an exercise price of 15 cents per common share for a period of three years from the date of issue. The securities will be subject to a four-month hold period from the date of closing and approval by the TSX-V. The private placement is subject to a 15-per-cent overallotment option and to an acceleration clause. See below for further details. In connection with the private placement, the company may pay finders' fees or brokers' warrants to eligible third parties in consideration for the introduction of subscribers.
Net proceeds from the private placement will be used for advanced materials sample preparation, commercial agreements, project finance and general working capital requirements for the company.
If during a period of 10 consecutive trading days between the date that is four months following the closing of the private placement and the expiry of the warrants the daily volume-weighted average trading price of the common shares of the company on the TSX-V (or such other stock exchange where the majority of the trading volume occurs) exceeds 50 cents on each of those 10 consecutive days, the company may, within 30 days of such an occurrence, give written notice to the holders of the warrants that the warrants will expire at 4 p.m. Vancouver time on the 30th day following the giving of notice unless exercised by the holders prior to such date. Upon receipt of such notice, the holders of the warrants will have 30 days to exercise their warrants. Any warrants which remain unexercised at 4 p.m. Vancouver time on the 30th day following the giving of such notice will expire at that time.
