NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO THE UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Oct. 05, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Calibre Mining Corp. (TSX-V: CXB) (the “Company” or “Calibre”) is pleased to announce a non-brokered private placement financing for up to 11,363,700 units (the “Units”) at a post-Consolidation (as defined below) price of $0.44 per Unit to raise gross proceeds of up to $5,000,028 (the “Private Placement”).
Each Unit will consist of one post-Consolidation common share and one common share purchase warrant. Each warrant will entitle the holder to acquire an additional common share for $0.95, on a post-Consolidation basis, for a period of five years from the date of closing of the Private Placement. Sprott Capital Partners, a division of Sprott Private Wealth LP, and its affiliates will act as finders in the Private Placement.
A finder’s fee may be paid on all or part of the Private Placement; eligible finders will be paid a 6.0% cash commission and issued non-transferable share purchase warrants (the “Finder Warrants”) equal to 5.0% of the aggregate number of Units placed by them. Each Finder Warrant will permit the purchase of one Warrant Share for two years from the closing date at $0.55.
The Company expects to close the Private Placement during the week of October 29, 2018. Proceeds of the Private Placement will be used for exploration, project generative activities, loan repayment, and general working capital. It is anticipated that Calibre’s management and board of directors will acquire Units in the Private Placement. The issuance of Units to certain insiders of Calibre pursuant to the Private Placement will be considered to be a related party transaction within the meaning of TSX Venture Exchange Policy 5.9 and Multilateral Instrument 61-101 (“MI 61-101”). The Company intends to rely on the exemptions from the valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 contained in sections 5.5(b) and 5.7(1)(b) of MI 61-101 in respect of any Insider participation.
Prior to closing of the Private Placement, the Company will consolidate its outstanding common shares on the basis of ten (10) existing common shares for one (1) new common share (the “Consolidation”). At Calibre’s last Annual General and Special Meeting held on May 23, 2018, shareholders of the Company authorized the Consolidation so it only requires stock exchange approval.
The Company will have 42,764,175 common shares issued and outstanding, a working capital of approximately $4.7 million and no debt after the Consolidation and completion of the Private Placement.
All securities issued and issuable in the Private Placement will be subject to a hold period of four months following the distribution date, under applicable Canadian securities legislation and stock exchange policy. Completion of the Private Placement remains subject to approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. All amounts disclosed in this press release are in Canadian dollars.
