Warrior Gold Announces First Tranche Closing of Private Placement
NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES
Toronto, September 26, 2019 – Warrior Gold Inc. (TSX-V - WAR) (“Warrior Gold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has closed the first tranche of its previously announced non-brokered private placement of up to $1,500,000 (“the Offering”) raising gross proceeds of $859,983 through the issuance of 4,400,000 flow-through units (“FT Units”) and 4,666,478 hard dollar units (“HD Units”).
Each FT Unit was priced at $0.10 and comprises one flow-through common share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (a “FT Warrant”) and each HD Unit was priced at $0.09 and comprises one common share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (a “HD Warrant”) of the Company. Each whole FT Warrant and HD Warrant will entitle the holder, on exercise, to purchase one additional common share of the Company (a “Warrant Share”), at a price of $0.15 per Warrant Share for one year post the closing date, provided, however, that, if at any time following the expiry of the statutory four-month hold period, the closing price of the common shares on the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV”) is greater than $0.30 for 20 or more consecutive trading days, the Warrants will be accelerated and will expire on the 30th business day following the date of notice of such acceleration.
As certain insiders of Warrior Gold participated in the Offering, it is deemed to be a "related party transaction" as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101-Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). The Company is exempt from the formal valuation requirement of Section 5.4 of MI 61-101 pursuant to Subsection 5.5(b) of MI 61-101 and exempt from the minority approval requirements of Section 5.6 of MI 61-101 pursuant to Subsection 5.7(a) of MI 61-101.
In connection with the Offering, the Company paid finders’ fees of $31,143 in cash and 323,869 finder warrants issued on the same terms as the financing Warrants (but non-transferable), as permitted by the policies of the TSXV. The securities issued under the Offering are subject to a four-month hold period from the date of issue in accordance with applicable securities laws, expiring on January 26, 2020.
The proceeds from the HD Unit Offering will be used for exploration and general corporate purposes and the gross proceeds from the FT Unit Offering will be used for Canadian Exploration Expenses and will qualify as “flow-through mining expenditures”, as defined in the Income Tax Act (Canada).
The securities offered have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of the securities in any State in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
