Grid Metals Completes $5 Million Private Placement






Grid Metals Corp. (TSX-V:GRDM) (OTCQB:MSMGF) is pleased to announce it has closed the second and final tranche of a non-brokered private placement which was announced on November 29, 2023 and December 5, 2023. In total the Company raised $5,058,882 in two tranches. The first tranche of 23,209,000 special flow-through common shares were issued at $0.18 for proceeds of $4,177,620 on December 22, 2023. The second tranche of the Offering consisted of 4,000,000 Special Flow-through Shares at a price of $0.18 per share for proceeds of $720,000 and 1,151,143 ordinary flow-through common shares priced at $0.14 per share for proceeds of $161,202.


The Special Flow-Through Shares and the Ordinary Flow-Through Shares have been issued as a “flow-through shares” within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada). Proceeds from the sale of Special Flow-Through Shares and the Ordinary Flow-Through Shares will be used to incur “Canadian exploration expenses” as defined in subsection 66.1(6) of the Income Tax Act that qualify for the federal 30% Critical Mineral Exploration Tax Credit and will be eligible for the 30% Manitoba Mineral Exploration Tax Credit. Such proceeds will be renounced to the subscribers with an effective date not later than December 31, 2023, in the aggregate amount of not less than the total amount of gross proceeds raised from the issue of the Special Flow-Through Shares and the Ordinary Flow-Through Shares.


Finders fees paid on the closing of the second tranche of the Offering consisted of a cash payment of $1,399 and issuance of 9,996 finders warrants exercisable at $0.15 per share for a period of two years from the closing date. There were no finders warrants payable on the closing of the first tranche of the Offering. The proceeds of the financing will be used for resource drilling at the Company’s Donner Lake Lithium Project and for further exploration drilling at the Donner Lake Lithium Project and at the Company’s Falcon West Lithium Property.


Certain directors and officers of the Company participated in the Offering purchasing an aggregate total of 1,720,100 Ordinary Flow-Through Shares and Special Flow-Through Shares via backend buying, which participation constituted a related party transaction pursuant to the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange and Multilateral Instrument-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions. The Company relied on the exemptions from the valuation and minority approval requirements set forth in Paragraphs 5.5(a) and (b) of MI 61-101 with respect to the valuation requirement and Paragraph 5.7(b) with respect to the minority shareholder approval requirement. A material change report with respect to the final closing of the Offering will be filed less than 21 days prior to the closing date of the Offering as participation by insiders was not settled until shortly prior to closing and the Company wished to complete the Offering as expeditiously as possible. Closing of the Offering has been conditionally approved by the TSXV, with final acceptance subject to the fulfillment of the customary requirements of the TSXV.


The Offering included additional investments from two institutional shareholders of the Company (see press release dated November 29, 2023 ) who purchased 18,619,000 shares as backend buyers of the Special Flow-Through Shares.


Resale of the securities of the Company issued under the Offering will be subject to a hold period pursuant to Canadian securities laws of four months and one day following the closing date of each tranche of the Offering.
