OSPREY GOLD DEVELOPMENT LTD. (TSX-V: OS) (OTCQB: OSSPF) is pleased to report that it has closed its previously announced non-brokered private placement (see news releases dated June 20, 2019 and July 25, 2019) of 21,580,000 units at a price of $0.05 per Unit, for aggregate proceeds of $1,079,000.
Each Unit consists of one common share and one share purchase warrant (“Warrant”), each Warrant entitling the holder to purchase an additional common share at a price of $0.075 per share for a period of 24 months from date of issuance.
The net proceeds of the Private Placement will be used for exploration and advancement of Osprey’s exploration projects located in Nova Scotia, Canada, and general working capital. All securities issued under the Private Placement are subject to a hold period expiring four months and one day after date of issuance.
Meguma Gold Corp. subscribed for, and directly acquired 13,100,000 Units pursuant to the Private Placement. Prior to the Offering, MegumaGold did not own or control any common Shares of the Company. As a result of the acquisition of the securities described above, MegumaGold now directly owns and/or controls 13,100,000 common shares of the Company, representing 19.05% of the post-closing issued and outstanding common shares of the Company and 13,100,000 warrants.
The Company has been advised that MegumaGold acquired these securities for investment purposes and may in the future acquire or dispose of securities of the Company, through the market, privately or otherwise, as circumstances or market conditions warrant. In connection with the acquisition of Units, MegumaGold will file an early warning report in accordance with National Instrument 62-103 – The Early Warning System and Related Take-Over Bid and Insider Issues.
MegumaGold has been granted the right to participate in subsequent offerings of the Company on a pro-rata basis in proportion to MegumaGold’s percentage interest (calculated on a non-diluted basis) immediately prior to the subsequent offering (the “Participation Right”). The Participation Right has a term of 24 months (the “Participation Period”) and expires if, at any time during the term of the Participation Period, MegumaGold declines its right to participate. The Participation Right remains subject to approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
MegumaGold is a Canadian junior gold exploration company engaged in the business of acquiring, exploring and developing natural resource properties, and holds strategically-positioned tenure of approximately 180,000 hectares within the Meguma Gold District of Nova Scotia, near and around the properties held and operated by Osprey.
Directors and insiders of the Company subscribed for a total of 400,000 Units under the Private Placement. The issuance of these securities to directors and insiders are “related party transactions” under the policies of the TSXV and Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”). The Company is relying on exemptions from the minority shareholder approval and formal valuation requirements applicable to the related party transactions under Sections 5.7(1)(b) and 5.5(b), respectively, of MI 61-101. There has been no prior formal valuation of the common shares and Warrants issued as there has not been any necessity to do so. The Private Placement has been reviewed and approved by the Company’s board of directors, including a majority of the Company’s independent directors.
The Company paid aggregate cash finders’ fees of $6,300 and issued 126,000 Finders’ Warrants in connection with the Private Placement. Each Finder’s Warrant entitles the holder to acquire one common share of the Company at $0.075 per share for 24 months from the date of closing.
