First Nordic Raises $2.7M Through Warrants and Options

 

 

 

 

 

First Nordic Metals Corp.  (TSX-V: FNM) (OTCQB: FNMCF) (FRA: HEG0) is pleased to announce the successful completion of the Company’s warrant exercise incentive program, as previously announced on June 13, 2024 (the “Incentive Program”), as well as the exercise of additional Company warrants and stock options, providing aggregate gross proceeds of $2,703,157 to First Nordic Metals Corp.

 

Taj Singh, President and CEO comments: “The exercise of these warrants and options is a significant positive event as it strengthens our cash position and cleans up our capitalization structure. In the last three weeks, approximately 7 million warrants were exercised by our supportive shareholder base, allowing the Company to accelerate the advancement of its projects. We believe First Nordic’s project portfolio is unique, with its combination of grade, scale, substantial growth potential, and great location in Europe’s heartland of mining.”

 

Incentive Program

 

A total of 6,301,273 common shares in the capital of the Company were issued upon the exercise of 6,301,273 outstanding share purchase warrants permitted to participate under the Incentive Program, providing gross proceeds of $1,827,369 to the Company from the Incentive Program.

 

For every Outstanding Warrant exercised, the holders of such Outstanding Warrant received the one Common Share to which they were otherwise entitled under the terms of the Outstanding Warrants and one-half of one common share purchase warrant. Each Incentive Warrant allows the holder to acquire one Common Share at an exercise price of $0.40 for a period of two years following the date of the issuance of the Incentive Warrant. A total of 3,150,631 Incentive Warrants were issued pursuant to the Incentive Program.

 

Holders of 7,689,579 Outstanding Warrants were eligible to participate in the Incentive Program. For those holders of Outstanding Warrants who chose not to participate in the Incentive Program, such Outstanding Warrants will remain outstanding and continue to be exercisable for Common Shares on their current terms (including the amended exercise price of $0.29 per Outstanding Warrant) until their applicable expiry date, at which time any Outstanding Warrants that remain unexercised will expire and be cancelled pursuant to their terms.

 

Insiders of the Company participated in the Incentive Program exercising 507,513 Outstanding Warrants and were issued 253,756 Incentive Warrants. As a result, the Incentive Program may constitute a “related party transaction” with-in the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Shareholders in Special Transactions. The Company relies on the exemptions from the formal valuation requirements of MI 61-101 contained in section 5.5(a) and (b) of MI 61-101 on the basis that the fair market value of the transaction with insiders will not be more than 25% of the market capitalization of the Company and no securities of the Company are listed on a specified market set out in such section, and the Company further relies on the exemption from the minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 contained in Section 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101 on the basis of the fair market value of the transaction with insiders will not be more than 25% of the market capitalization of the Company.

 

The proceeds of the Incentive Program will be used for exploration and development of the Company’s projects and for working capital purposes.

 

The Incentive Warrants issued pursuant to the Incentive Program, and the Common Shares issuable on exercise thereof, are subject to a hold period ending November 9, 2024. The Incentive Program is subject to the final acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange.

 

Additional Warrants and Stock Options

 

Since mid-May 2024, in addition to funding from the Incentive Program, First Nordic has raised $698,500 from stock option exercises and an additional $177,288 from the exercise of other warrants not included in the Incentive Program.

 

Marketing Services

 

First Nordic also announces it has amended its previously announced agreement (May 5, 2024) with RMK Marketing Inc. (“RMK”) to increase its advertising budget by up to an additional $250,000. The term of the agreement remains the same, six months commencing May 5, 2024. The Company will not issue any securities to RMK as compensation for the services. As of the date hereof, to the Company’s knowledge, RMK (including its directors and officers) does not own any securities of the Company and has an arm’s-length relationship with the Company. RMK is an independent company which will, as appropriate, provide project management and consulting for an on-line marketing campaign, coordinate marketing actions, maintain and optimize adwords campaigns, adapt adwords bidding strategies, optimize adwords ads, and create and optimize landing pages. The promotional activity will occur by e-mail, Facebook and Google.
