VANCOUVER, BC, Sept. 22, 2021 /CNW/ - Euromax Resources Ltd. (TSX: EOX): (Euromax or the Company) is pleased to announce that it intends to complete a non-brokered private placement of up to approximately 21 million units (the Units) of the Company at a price of CAD$0.057 per Unit (the Private Placement). The Company is anticipating aggregate gross proceeds of approximately CAD$1.2 million.
Each Unit will consist of one common share of the Company (each, a Common Share) and one common share purchase warrant (each, a Warrant), with each Warrant exercisable for one Common Share (each, a Warrant Share) at an exercise price of CAD$0.0761 for a period of three (3) years from the date of issuance, subject to adjustment upon certain customary events. The Warrants, if exercised in full by the holders thereof, would represent additional gross proceeds to the Company of approximately CAD$1.6 million.
The Company's largest shareholder, Galena Resource Equities Limited (Galena), an entity controlled by Galena Asset Management S.A., which is an affiliate of Trafigura Pte Ltd. (Trafigura), has indicated that it will subscribe to the Private Placement based on the maximum allowable under Section 602 of the TSX Company Manual for up to 15,602,312 Units. Other large shareholders of the Company have also indicated that they will subscribe to the Private Placement for an aggregate of 4,380,202 Units. Two directors of the Company (the Participating Directors) are currently expected to subscribe for an aggregate of approximately 1 million Units in the Private Placement.
The proceeds of the Private Placement will be used for general corporate expenses and working capital purposes.
The Company is pleased that major institutional investors, led by Galena and its parent, Trafigura, have demonstrated their continued support for the Ilovica-Shtuka Project. It is anticipated that the Company will require additional financing in the first quarter of 2022 which the Company believes will receive the support of Galena and Trafigura.
Closing of the Private Placement is subject to the satisfaction of customary conditions for a transaction of this nature, including the waiver of certain rights held by existing shareholders, and the receipt of all necessary corporate and regulatory approvals, including the approval of the Toronto Stock Exchange (the TSX).
As Galena and the Participating Directors are insiders of the Company, the Private Placement (insofar as it involves such persons) constitutes a related party transaction of Euromax under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Investments (MI 61-101). The Company is relying on the exemption from the formal valuation requirement in Section 5.5(a) of MI 61-101 and the exemption from the minority approval requirement in Section 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101, as neither the fair market value of the subject matter of, nor the fair market value of the consideration for, the transaction, insofar as it involves interested parties, exceeds 25% of the Company's market capitalization. The Company anticipates it will file a material change report less than 21 days before the closing of the Private Placement. This shorter period is reasonable and necessary in the circumstances as the Company wants to complete the Private Placement as expeditiously as possible given the immediacy of the Company's need for financing.
Closing of the Private Placement is expected to occur on or about October 1, 2021.
Upon completion of the Private Placement, Galena is currently expected to exercise control and direction over approximately 191,610,952 Common Shares and 15,602,312 Warrants, representing approximately 54.3% of the issued and outstanding Common Shares (on a non-diluted basis) and 56.2% (on a partially diluted basis).
The acquisition of the securities of the Company by Galena is for investment purposes. Galena may from time to time acquire additional securities of the Company, dispose of some or all of the existing or additional securities it holds or will hold, or may continue to hold its current position.
Galena's head office is located at Maples Corporate Services Limited, PO Box 309, Ugland House, South Church Street, George Town, Grand Cayman KYl-1104, Cayman Islands.
The Common Shares, the Warrants and the Warrant Shares will be subject to a four month hold period from the date of issuance of the Units.
