TORONTO, Aug. 29, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Plateau Energy Metals Inc. (“Plateau” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: PLU | OTCQB: PLUUF) is pleased to announce that further to the news release on August 22, 2019, the non-brokered private placement (the “Offering“) will be increased from up to 4,000,000 units (the “Units“) at a price of C$0.25 per Unit to up to 6,000,000 Units for gross proceeds of up to C$1,500,000. Each Unit will consist of one common share in the capital of the Company (a “Share”) and one-half of one non-transferable common share purchase warrant (each whole common share purchase warrant, a “Warrant”). Each whole Warrant will be exercisable to acquire one Share at an exercise price of C$0.50 per Share for a period of 24 months from the date of issuance.
Insiders of the Company are expected to subscribe for approximately 2,000,000 Units of the Offering.
The Offering is scheduled to close on or about September 17, 2019 (the “Closing Date”), and is subject to certain conditions customary for transactions of this nature including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. Proceeds from the Offering will be used for working capital and general corporate purposes.
In connection with the Offering, the Company may pay finders’ fees to certain eligible finders of up to 6% of the gross proceeds received and may issue warrants equal to 6% of the Units placed (“Finders’ Warrants”). The Finders’ Warrants will have the same terms as the Warrants forming part of the Units. All securities issued under the Offering will be subject to a statutory hold period of four months and one day following the Closing Date.
The subscription by insiders pursuant to the Offering is considered to be a related party transaction subject to Multilateral Instrument 61-101 (“MI 61-101”). The Company intends to rely on exemptions from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements provided under sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(a) of MI 61-101 on the basis that participation in the private placement by insiders will not exceed 25% of the fair market value of the Company’s market capitalization.
The securities to be offered pursuant to the Offering have not been, and will not be, registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “U.S. Securities Act“) or any U.S. state securities laws, and may not be offered or sold in the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, United States persons absent registration or any applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the U.S. Securities Act and applicable U.S. state securities laws. This news release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy securities in the United States, nor in any other jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
