Orion Mine Finance announced that on July 9, 2019, Orion Co-VI Ltd., a corporation controlled by Orion Mine Finance Management II Limited, entered into a purchase agreement with Electrum Strategic Opportunities Fund L.P. for the purchase of 70,400,000 common shares of Victoria Gold Corp. (TSX-V:VIT).
The Purchased Shares were purchased for an aggregate purchase price of C$32,032,000, or C$0.455 per Purchased Share. Orion and Victoria concurrently entered into a shareholder rights agreement effective upon completion of the acquisition of the Purchased Shares.
Immediately prior to the Transaction, Orion held 318,154,360 common shares and 25,000,000 common share purchase warrants of Victoria. The Warrants are subject to a blocker feature, which prohibits the acquisition of additional common shares upon the exercise of Warrants where such issuance would result in Orion holding more than 19.99% of the outstanding Common Shares on an undiluted basis. Exercise of the Warrants in excess of the 19.99% threshold will be cash-settled by the Issuer. Prior to the Transaction, on a partially diluted basis and giving effect to the blocker feature of the Warrants, Orion had a securityholding percentage of 38.60%. (based on 824,303,528 common shares outstanding). Immediately following the Transaction, Orion will hold 388,559,360 common shares, and on a partially diluted basis, and giving effect to the blocker feature on the Warrants, Orion has a securityholding percentage of approximately 47.13%, an increase in its securityholding percentage of approximately 8.53%.
Orion acquired the Purchased Shares for investment purposes. Orion has no current plan or intentions which relate to, or would result in, acquiring additional securities of Victoria, disposing of securities of Victoria, or any of the other actions enumerated above. Depending on market conditions, Orion’s view of Victoria’s prospects and other factors considered relevant by Orion, and subject to the shareholder rights agreement previously agreed between Orion and Victoria, Orion may acquire additional securities of Victoria from time to time in the future, in the open market or pursuant to privately negotiated transactions, or may sell all or a portion of its securities of Victoria.
