GRAN COLOMBIA GOLD ANNOUNCES CA$40 MILLION PRIVATE PLACEMENT
Gran Colombia Gold Corp. has arranged a non-brokered private placement of up to 7,142,858 units of the company at a price of $5.60 per unit for total proceeds of up to $40-million. The five-day volume-weighted average price of the company's shares for the period ended Jan. 24, 2020, was $5.607. The net proceeds of the private placement will be used for general working capital and corporate purposes, including repurchases of the company's listed warrants under its normal course issuer bid. Closing of the private placement is subject to the receipt of regulatory approvals, including from the Toronto Stock Exchange, and is expected to close two business days following receipt of such approval. Each unit consists of one common share and one common share purchase warrant exercisable into a full common share at $6.50 per share for a period of three years from the date of issuance.
Serafino Iacono, executive chairman of Gran Colombia, stated: "We see the increased interest from strategic and institutional investors in Gran Colombia as a continuing endorsement of our successful turnaround of the company and the potential for further appreciation in our share price, which doubled in 2019 and is up by almost 300 per cent over the past three years, as we execute our strategy to unlock value in our portfolio of quality assets. We have ramped up our near-mine and regional exploration programs at our high-grade Segovia operations for the coming year and we are unlocking value in our Marmato project through the spin out to Caldas Gold Corp., which we anticipate will be completed within the next couple of weeks."
