Vortex Metals Announces Closing of Upsized Private Placement






Vortex Metals Inc. (TSXV: VMS) (FSE: DM8) (OTCQB: VMSSF) is pleased to announce that, further to its news releases dated April 11, 2024 and April 19, 2024, it has closed its previously announced non-brokered private placement of units of the Company at a price of $0.09 per Unit. Each Unit consists of one common share in the capital of the Company and one-half of one non-transferable Share purchase warrant.  Each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one additional Share at a price of $0.135 per Warrant Share for a period of 24 months from the date of issuance. The total amount of the Private Placement consists of 19,369,411 Units for aggregate gross proceeds of $1,743,249.99.


The response to our recently announced financing has been overwhelming. To accommodate several strategic investors, we were pleased to increase the offering and close an oversubscribed financing”, said CEO and President Vikas Ranjan.


In connection with the closing of the Private Placement, the Company paid aggregate finder’s fees of $24,184.01, representing a cash commission of 8% of the proceeds raised from subscribers introduced by the finders, and issued an aggregate of 276,711 compensation warrants. Each Broker Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one Warrant Share at a price of $0.135 per Warrant Share for a period of 24 months from the date of issuance.


All securities issued in connection with the Private Placement are subject to a statutory hold period of four months plus a day in accordance with applicable securities legislation ending on August 26, 2024.


The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Private Placement for general working capital and exploration expenses.


In connection with the closing, insiders of the Company subscribed for a total of 1,570,300 Units, for a subscription price of $141,327, under the Private Placement. The Insider Subscription constitutes a “related party transaction” within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Securityholders in Special Transactions. The Company has relied on the exemptions from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 contained in Sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a), respectively, in respect of the Insider Subscription as the fair market value of the Units issued to insiders in connection with the Private Placement does not exceed 25% of the market capitalization of the Company, as determined in accordance with MI 61- 101. The Company did not file a material change report in respect of the related party transaction at least 21 days before the closing of the Private Placement, which the Company deems reasonable in the circumstances in order to complete the Private Placement in an expeditious manner.


The securities being offered have not been, nor will they be, registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, U.S. persons absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements. This news release will not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor will there be any sale of the securities in any State in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
