Nouveau Monde Graphite Inc. (NYSE: NMG) (TSX-V: NOU) announced the launch of a proposed underwritten public offering of 7,000,000 of its common shares. All of the Common Shares to be sold in the Offering will be offered by Nouveau Monde. Nouveau Monde also expects to grant the underwriters a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional 15% of the Common Shares sold pursuant to the Offering.
Evercore ISI and BMO Capital Markets are acting as joint book-running managers for the proposed Offering.
The Company is also pleased to announce that, shortly following the closing of the Offering and after preliminary discussions with one of its current shareholders, it plans to complete a non-brokered private placement of a maximum of 1,750,000 Common Shares on the same terms as the Offering. Moreover, the shareholder participating in the Private Placement will have the option to purchase a maximum of 262,500 additional Common Shares in the event of the full exercise of the Over-Allotment Option under the Offering (or such lesser number of Common Shares as is proportionate to any lesser exercise of the Over-Allotment Option). The Private Placement will be made pursuant to an exemption from Canadian prospectus requirements and the Common Shares issued thereto will be subject to restrictions on resale for a period of four months and one day from the closing of the Private Placement under applicable Canadian securities legislation. The Private Placement and the Private Placement Option are expected to close within 45 days following the filing of the final version of the prospectus supplement to the Base Shelf Prospectus (as defined below) prepared in connection with the Offering, and will be subject to the Company receiving all necessary regulatory approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange and the New York Stock Exchange. Closing of the Private Placement and of the Offering are not conditional upon each other.
The Company expects the net proceeds of the Offering and the Private Placement to be used towards the development of the Matawinie mine project and LiB anode plant project and for general working capital and corporate expense needs.
