Grounded Lithium Closes Non-Brokered Private Placement Raising $3.0 Million in Gross Proceeds






Grounded Lithium Corp. (TSX-V: GRD) is pleased to announce it closed its previously announced non-brokered financing of special warrants of the Company for gross proceeds of $3.0 million.  In total, 12,000,000 Special Warrants, were issued in connection with the Offering, with each Special Warrant entitling the holder, upon the exercise of each Special Warrant, to receive without payment of additional consideration, one unit of the Company. Each Unit is comprised of one common share of the Company and one common share purchase warrant. Each Warrant shall be exercisable to acquire one Common Share at a price of $0.50 per Warrant Share for a period of 24 months from the closing of the Offering.


The Special Warrants shall be automatically exercisable for Units on a one-for-one basis on the date which is the earlier of:

(i)    the second business day following the date on which a receipt is obtained from the Alberta Securities Commission, as principal regulator on behalf of the applicable securities regulatory authorities in each of the provinces and territories of Canada in which the Special Warrants are sold for a (final) prospectus to qualify the distribution of the Units underlying the Special Warrants; and

(ii)    the date which is four months and a day following the closing date of the Offering.


The Company’s resulting capital structure with completion of the Offering is as follows:


Number of
Potential Future
Common shares, basic 68,872,750 $
Warrants, $0.50 exercise price 12,000,000 $ 6,000,000
Management incentives 7,409,100 $ 1,455,000
Finders warrants, financings to date 2,351,862 $ 447,676
Common shares, fully diluted 90,633,712
Potential future proceeds $ 7,902,676


The Company will earmark these funds towards two important short-term objectives: (1) engagement of Hatch Ltd. with that contract’s corresponding lithium extraction technology assessment and selection for GLC’s brine resources, and (2) completion of a preliminary economic assessment on the Company’s Kindersley Lithium Project.  Attainment of these two short-term objectives sets the stage for further operational and valuation milestones as the Company measurably moves towards the goal of commercial production.


“We are delighted to close on this amended financing capped at $3 million,” commented Greg Phaneuf, VP Finance & CFO.  “Access to capital is crucial in the junior resource development industry and with strong support from a number of key existing shareholders on this capital raise, we are now able to measurably move the business forward to create additional shareholder value.”


The Company paid an aggregate of approximately $87,000 in finders fees and issued an aggregate of 347,725 finder warrants to certain arms-length finders in connection with the Offering.  Each Finder Warrant entitles the finder to purchase Common Shares at a price of $0.25 for a period of two years from the date of issue.


GLC advises that certain insiders of the Company participated in the Offering pursuant to available related party exemptions under Multilateral Instrument 61-101. The Company was exempt from the requirements to obtain a formal valuation or minority shareholder approval in connection with the insiders’ participation in the Offering in reliance on sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101 in that the fair market value (as determined under MI 61-101) of the consideration for securities of the Company to be issued to related parties does not exceed 25% of the Company’s market capitalization (as determined under MI 61-101). A material change report in connection with the participation of insiders in the Offering will be filed less than 21 days in advance of the closing of the Offering, which the Company deemed reasonable in the circumstances so as to be able to avail itself of potential financing opportunities and complete the Offering in an expeditious manner.

The closing of the Offering is subject to regulatory approval including that of the TSX Venture Exchange. The Finder Warrants and prior to the filing of the final prospectus and the automatic exercise of the Special Warrants, the Special Warrants will be subject to a hold period expiring March 4, 2023.
