UEX Closes Oversubscribed Bought Deal Private Placement

 

 

 

 

 

UEX Corporation (TSX:UEX) is pleased to announce that it closed its previously announced flow-through common share offering with a syndicate of underwriters led by Cormark Securities Inc.  The underwriters purchased 28,571,429 common shares that qualify as “flow-through shares” for the purposes of the Income Tax Act (Canada) at a price of $0.21 per Flow-Through Common Share of the Company for aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of approximately C$6.0 million. 

 

 

The underwriters have also exercised their overallotment option and purchased an additional 4,631,071 shares at a price of $0.21 per Flow-Through Common Share for aggregate gross proceeds of approximately $972,525. 

 

 

As a result of the exercise of the overallotment option, UEX has received aggregate gross proceeds of  approximately $6,972,525 by issuing a total of 33,202,500 Flow-Through Common Shares.

 

 

The net proceeds from the sale of the Flow-Through Common Shares will be used to incur “Canadian exploration expenses” (within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada)) related to UEX’s projects in Saskatchewan. The Company will renounce these expenses to the purchasers with an effective date of no later than December 31, 2018. 

 

 

The securities issued by UEX in connection with the Offering are subject to a four month plus one day “hold period” as prescribed by the Toronto Stock Exchange and applicable securities laws.

 

 

This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy any of the securities in the United States. The securities have not been and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “U.S. Securities Act”), or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold within the United States or to or for the account or benefit of a U.S. person (as defined in Regulation S under the U.S. Securities Act) unless registered under the U.S. Securities Act and applicable state securities laws or an exemption from such registration is available.
