Premier American Uranium Completes C$5.77 Million Private Placement






Premier American Uranium Inc. (TSX-V: PUR) is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced private placement announced on April 11, 2024, pursuant to which the Company sold 2,353,981 subscription receipts of PUR at a price of C$2.45 per Subscription Receipt for gross proceeds of C$5,767,253, which includes the exercise of the Agents’ upsize option. The Offering was conducted by a syndicate of underwriters, led by Red Cloud Securities Inc., as lead agent and sole bookrunner, and including PI Financial Corp.


Each Subscription Receipt entitles the holder thereof to automatically receive, upon satisfaction or waiver, as applicable, of certain escrow release conditions, one unit of PUR. Each Unit will be comprised of one common share of PUR and one-half of one common share purchase warrant of PUR. Each whole Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one common share of PUR  at a price of C$3.50 until May 7, 2026.


The Escrow Release Conditions include the satisfaction of all conditions precedent (other than conditions precedent that, by their terms, cannot be satisfied until closing) to the completion of the pending transaction as announced by the Company in a press release dated March 20, 2024, pursuant to which the Company has agreed to acquire all of the issued and outstanding common shares of American Future Fuel Corporation by way of a court-approved plan of arrangement under the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia). Completion of the Arrangement is subject to, among other things, receipt of applicable regulatory approvals, court approvals, as well as the requisite approval of AMPS shareholders.


The proceeds of the Offering, net of the reasonable out-of-pocket expenses of the Agents, are being held in escrow and will not be released to PUR until the Escrow Release Conditions are satisfied or waived, as applicable. If the Escrow Release Conditions have not been satisfied or waived, as applicable, on or prior August 30, 2024, the aggregate Offering Price of the Subscription Receipts (plus any interest earned thereon) will be returned to the holders (net of any applicable withholding taxes), and such Subscription Receipts will be automatically cancelled and be of no further force and effect. Following the satisfaction or waiver, as applicable, of the Escrow Release Conditions, the net proceeds of the Offering are expected to be used to fund the proposed exploration programs for PUR’s projects as well as for working capital and general corporate purposes.


The Offering is subject to certain conditions, including, but not limited to, the receipt of the final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. The securities issued pursuant to the Offering are subject to a hold period of four-month and one day from the closing date of the Offering.


As consideration for the services provided in connection with the Offering, the Agents will receive a cash fee in the amount of $172,000.88 representing 6.0% of the aggregate gross proceeds of the Offering, other than with respect to certain “president’s list” purchasers identified by the Company and in respect of which nil fees are payable. The Corporation has also issued 70,204 compensation options of the Corporation to the Agents, representing 6.0% of the number of Subscription Receipts sold under the Offering other than with respect to president’s list purchasers in respect of which nil Compensation Options were issued. Each Compensation Option is exercisable to acquire one common share of PUR at the Offering Price until May 7, 2026. The Compensation Options will only be exercisable and the Cash Commission will only be payable, upon the satisfaction or waiver, as applicable, of the Escrow Release Conditions.


None of the securities to be issued pursuant to the Offering have been or will be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and such securities may not be offered or sold within the United States absent U.S. registration or an applicable exemption from U.S. registration requirements. This news release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any securities.


Related Party Disclosure


Insiders of the Company, Sachem Cove Opportunities Fund LP and IsoEnergy Ltd. participated in the Offering, acquiring an aggregate of 744,417 Subscription Receipts on the same terms as other investors for aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of $1,823,821.65. The Insider Participation constitutes a “related party transaction” pursuant to Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions. The Company is exempt from the requirement to obtain a formal valuation or minority shareholder approval in connection with the Insider Participation under MI 61-101 in reliance on Sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101 due to the fair market value of the Insiders Participation being below 25% of the Company’s market capitalization for purposes of MI 61-101. The Company did not file a material change report 21 days prior to the expected closing date of the Offering as the details of the Insider Participation in the Offering had not been finalized at that time. The Offering has been approved by the board of directors of the Company with each of Tim Rotolo, a director of the Company and principal of Sachem Cove, and Marty Tunney, a director of the Company and officer of IsoEnergy, having disclosed his interest in the Offering and abstaining from voting thereon. The Company has not received nor has it requested a valuation of its securities or the subject matter of the Insider Participation in the 24 months prior to the date hereof.
