Geomega Resources Inc. (TSX-V: GMA) announces the second and final closing of a non-brokered private placement offering in the amount of $317,755, consisting of a total of 2,269,822 units at a price of $0.14 per Unit. Together with the first tranche, the Offering has resulted in aggregate proceeds of $1,232,010.
The Offering of Units consists of one common share and one-half of one share purchase warrant. Each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to acquire one additional common share at a price of $0.20 per share for a period of twenty-four months from the closing date. The Offering is subject to receipt of regulatory approval, including the final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. The securities to be issued under the Offering will have a hold period of four months and one day from their issue.
“Thanks to the strong support from our shareholders, we were able to reach and surpass our original goal for this financing and raised a total of $1.2M. We are now looking forward to completing the final portion of our construction funding and begin the next exciting phase in Geomega’s development. The Corporation is finalizing its discussions with government and institutional groups and will provide an update as soon as it is available. The Corporation is also close to securing the ideal location for the demonstration plant which is required to complete the ongoing FEED study. The Corporation is expected to be in a position to begin the construction process on schedule in the coming months,” commented Kiril Mugerman, President and CEO of Geomega.
The Corporation will use the proceeds of the Offering for construction of the demonstration plant, working capital and operating expenses.
Certain members of the executive management of the Corporation, being Mathieu Bourdeau, the Chief Financial Officer, have participated in this second closing of the Offering in the aggregate amount of $5,005. In total, the Insiders participated for $63,035 in the combined closings. The Insiders’ Participation is considered a “related party transaction” under Regulation 61-101 respecting Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (Québec) and the corresponding Policy 5.9 of the TSXV; however, the Insiders’ Participation is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements provided under Regulation 61-101 in accordance with sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of said Regulation 61-101. The exemption is based on the fact that neither the market value of the Insiders’ Participation nor the consideration paid therefor exceeds 25% of the Corporation’s market capitalization. The Corporation did not file a material change report at least 21 days prior to the first closing of the Offering since the Insiders’ Participation was not determined at that moment and the Corporation wished to close the Offering on an expedited basis for sound business reasons.
In connection with this Private Placement, the Company has paid a cash finder’s fee in an amount of $14,672 and issued 104,800 non-transferable finder’s options to acquire such number of common shares at a price of $0.20, exercisable for a period of twenty-four (24) months and subject to a hold period of four months plus one day from the closing date.
