Azarga Uranium Announces $1.5 Million Private PlacementJuly 11, 2017 7:26 am
AZARGA URANIUM CORP. (TSX:AZZ) (“Azarga Uranium” or the “Company”) announces that it intends to issue 5,800,000 units (each, a “Unit”) at a price of $0.26 per Unit to raise proceeds of $1.5 million through a non-brokered private placement (“the Financing”).
The Company intends to use the proceeds of the Financing to continue to advance the Dewey Burdock in-situ recovery uranium project (“Dewey Burdock”) towards construction, to identify additional uranium resources at Dewey Burdock through the analysis of historical data and for general working capital purposes.
Each Unit consists of one common share of the Company (each, a “Share”) and one-half of one Share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”). One Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one Share of the Company at a price of $0.36 per Share for a period of three years from the closing of the Financing. The Shares issued in connection with the Financing will be subject to a four-month and a day hold period. In addition, the Financing is subject to the approval of the Toronto Stock Exchange. Finder’s fees will be payable on a portion of the Financing.
Certain insiders of the Company (the “Purchasing Insiders”) are expected to purchase Units pursuant to the Financing. Pursuant to Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”), a purchase by the Purchasing Insiders would be a “related party transaction”. The Company is exempt from the requirements to obtain a formal valuation or minority shareholder approval in connection with the Financing in reliance on sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(a), respectively, of MI 61-101, as neither the fair market value of the securities received by such parties nor the proceeds for such securities received by the Company exceeds 25% of the Company’s market capitalization as calculated in accordance with MI 61-101.
