Trigon Metals Inc. has closed a non-brokered final tranche (the “Final Tranche”) of its previously announced non-brokered private placement financing of units (the “Offering”).
The Company issued 3,848,665 units (the “Units”) at a price of $0.35 per Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of $1,347,032. Each Unit is comprised of one common share of Trigon (a “Share”) and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”).
Each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to acquire one Share at a price of $0.50 for a period of 24 months following the date hereof, subject to an acceleration provision whereby in the event that at any time after the expiry of the statutory hold period, the Shares trade at $0.75 or higher on the TSX Venture Exchange for a period of 30 consecutive days, the Company shall have the right to accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants to the date that is 30 days after the Company issues a news release announcing that it has elected to exercise the acceleration right.
In connection with the Final Tranche, the Company paid cash finder’s fees of $19,845 and issued 56,700 finder’s warrants (the “Finder Warrants”) to eligible finders. Each Finder Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to acquire one Share at a price of $0.35 for a period of 24 months following the date hereof. The Final Tranche remains subject to the final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
All securities issued in connection with the Final Tranche are subject to a statutory hold period of four-months and one-day. The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the Final Tranche for the recommencement of mining at the Kombat mine and for working capital and general corporate purposes.
Certain of the directors and officers of the Company have subscribed for Units pursuant to the Final Tranche (the “Insider Participation”). The Insider Participation will be considered to be a “related party transaction” as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 (“MI 61-101”). The Insider Participation is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101.
