i-80 Gold Corp. Closes C$115 Million Bought Deal Public Offering






i-80 Gold Corp. (TSX: IAU) (NYSE American: IAUX) is pleased to announce the closing of its previously announced “bought deal” public offering of an aggregate of 69,698,050 units at a price of C$1.65 per Unit for aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of approximately C$115 million, including the full exercise of the over-allotment option.


Each Unit consists of one common share in the capital of the Company and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant of the Company. Each Warrant is exercisable to acquire one Common Share for a period of 48 months from closing of the Offering at an exercise price of C$2.15 per Warrant Share.


The Offering was led by National Bank Financial Inc. as lead underwriter and sole bookrunner, together with Canaccord Genuity Corp. and Stifel Nicolaus Canada Inc. as co-lead underwriters, and BMO Nesbitt Burns Inc., RBC Dominion Securities Inc., Scotia Capital Inc., Cormark Securities Inc. and PI Financial Corp. The Underwriters were paid a cash commission equal to 5% of the gross proceeds of the Offering, excluding proceeds from sales of Units to certain president’s list purchasers.


The Offering was completed pursuant to a short form prospectus dated April 25, 2024 in all of the provinces of Canada, except the province of Québec, and offered in the United States to “qualified institutional buyers” pursuant to an exemption from registration under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “U.S. Securities Act“) and in those other jurisdictions outside Canada and the United States pursuant to exemptions from prospectus and registration requirements.


The net proceeds of the Offering will be used to advance the development of the Company’s mineral properties and for general corporate purposes, as more particularly described in the Prospectus.


Certain directors and officers of the Company named below purchased an aggregate of 300,000 Units pursuant to the Offering. Participation by the Insiders in the Offering was considered a “related party transaction” pursuant to Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions. 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 pursuant to sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101 as neither the fair market value of any securities issued to, nor the consideration paid by, the Insiders exceeded 25% of i-80’s market capitalization. The Company did not file a material change report relating to the Insider Participation more than 21 days before the expected closing date of the Offering as the details of the Insider Participation was not settled at such time.
