First Phosphate Announces Closing of the Third and Final Tranche of Oversubscribed Private Placement Financing for Total Gross Proceeds of $8.2 Million






First Phosphate Corp. (CSE: PHOS) (OTC: FRSPF) (FSE: KD0) is pleased to announce that, on January 19, 2024, the Company closed the third and final tranche of the non-brokered private placement financing for gross proceeds of a minimum of $2,000,000, as further described in the Company’s news releases dated December 14 and 22, 2023, and January 2, 2024. Under the Third Tranche, the Company issued 1,768,250 Hard Dollar Units for gross proceeds of $707,300 raising the aggregate proceeds from the three tranches of the Offering to $8,223,475.20.


“We are pleased by another large vote of confidence placed in First Phosphate by existing and new shareholders including a number of institutional investors,” says Company CEO, John Passalacqua. “We are now in position to be able to drill this winter and begin uncovering the full extent of the Bégin-Lamarche high-purity igneous rock phosphate horizon at only 70 km from the deep-sea Port of Saguenay. In our experience, proximity to port and access to infrastructure and workforce are the single largest determinants for the economic viability of any phosphate project. Bégin-Lamarche has all these strong requisites. We feel that it could become one of the first phosphate mines to see production in Quebec as we are now in a position to accelerate its development.”


The aggregate issuances across the three tranches of the Offering, which was oversubscribed by a factor of 311%, are comprised of 4,858,688 Hard Dollar Units for gross proceeds of $1,943,475 and 12,560,000 Flow-Through Shares for gross proceeds of $6,280,000. In connection with the Offering, the Company paid an aggregate of $334,080 in finder’s fees, issued 369,840 Compensation Shares at a price of $0.50 per Compensation Share, and issued 1,193,700 Compensation Warrants, exercise at a price of $0.50 per common share of the Company, until December 31, 2025, subject to an Accelerated Expiry Date. (Capitalized terms used in this news release and not defined herein have the meanings given to them in the Company’s news release dated December 14, 2023.)


All securities issued under the Offering are subject to a four-month and one day statutory hold period in accordance with applicable securities laws, in addition to such other restrictions as may apply under applicable securities laws of jurisdictions outside Canada. The Company intends to use the proceeds from the Offering as disclosed in the Company’s press release dated December 14, 2023.


The securities issued pursuant to the Offering have not been, and will not be, registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “U.S. Securities Act“), or any U.S. state securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an available exemption from the registration requirement of the U.S. Securities Act and applicable U.S. state securities laws. This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any sale of, such securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.


The Company also announces that it has approved the grant of 360,000 restricted share units of the Company (“RSUs”) to an eligible consultant of the Company. The RSUs vest in 4 tranches (25% on each of May 31, 2024; August 31, 2024; November 30, 2024; and February 28, 2025). The terms of the RSUs are in accordance with the Company’s Omnibus Equity Incentive Plan as approved by disinterested shareholders at the Company’s annual and special meeting of shareholders held on August 25, 2023. All securities issued are subject to a hold period of four months plus one day from the date of issuance.
