CMC Announces Upsizing of Non-Brokered Private Placement for Gross Proceeds of up to C$3.1 Million
March 14, 2022. Vancouver, BC. – CMC Metals Ltd. (TSX-V: CMB) (Frankfurt:ZM5P) (CMCXF: OTC PINKS) (“CMC” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that due to significant investor demand, the Company has increased the size of the Company’s previously announced non-brokered private placement (the “Offering”) from up to C$2,120,000 to up to C$3,100,000 subject to regulatory acceptance. Under the revised Offering, the Company will sell any combination of flow-through units of the Company (each, a “FT Unit”) at a price of C$0.17 per FT Unit and non-flow-through units of the Company (each, a “Unit”) at a price of C$0.15 per Unit for gross proceeds of up to C$3,100,000.
Each FT Unit will consist of one common share of the Company to be issued as a “flow-through share” within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada) (each, a “FT Share”) and one-half of one transferrable non-flow-through share purchase warrant (each full warrant, a “Warrant”). Each Unit will consist of one common share of the Company (each, a “Unit Share”) and one-half of one Warrant. Each whole Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to acquire one non-flow-through common share of the Company (each, a “Warrant Share”) at a price of C$0.20 per Warrant Share for a period of 24 months from the closing date of the Offering.
Proceeds from the sale of FT Shares to eligible investors in Canada will be used to incur “Canadian exploration expenses” and “flow through mining expenditures” as these terms are defined in the Income Tax Act (Canada). Such proceeds will be renounced to the subscribers with an effective date not later than December 31, 2022, in the aggregate amount of not less than the total amount of gross proceeds raised from the issue of FT Shares.
The net proceeds from the sale of Units will be used to fund the Company’s exploration program at its silver-lead-zinc properties in the Rancheria Silver District, Yukon/British Columbia and its polymetallic copper-silver-lead properties in central Newfoundland, as well as a range of other exploration activities, as well as general corporate purposes. A major focus of the funding will be directed towards exploration drilling on the Company’s flagship Silver Hart Project.
The Company may pay finders’ fees comprised of cash and non-transferable warrants (the “Finder’s Warrants”) in connection with the Offering, subject to compliance with the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange. The terms of the Finder’s Warrants will be the same as the Warrants distributed in the FT Units and the NFT Units. All securities issued and sold under the Offering will be subject to a hold period expiring four months and one day from their date of issuance. Closing of the Offering is scheduled for mid-April 2022 and is subject to customary closing conditions including, but not limited to, the negotiation and execution of subscription agreements and receipt of applicable regulatory approvals, including approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
The securities being offered will not be registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “U.S. Securities Act”), or any applicable state securities laws, and may not be offered or sold to, or for the account or benefit of, persons in the United States or “U.S. persons,” as such term is defined in Regulation S promulgated under the U.S. Securities Act, absent registration or an exemption from such registration requirements. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of the securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
