Amex Announces $5 Million Private Placement
MONTREAL, Feb. 13, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Amex Exploration Inc. (“Amex” or the “Company”) (AMX: TSX-V; FRA: MX0) announces that it has undertaken to complete a non-brokered private placement in the maximum amount of $5,025,000, through the offering of up to 6,700,000 units priced at $0.75 each. Each unit will consist of one common share and one half of a common share purchase warrant (the “Warrant”) having an exercise price of $1.25 and a term of 18 months. The Warrants are subject to an accelerated expiry if the volume weighted average price of the common shares is greater than or equal to $1.50 for any 20 consecutive trading days and, if the Company has given notice. The Warrants will expire 30 days following the date of such notice.
Funds will be used for exploration work on the on-going drilling program on the Perron property and for general working capital purposes.
Certain directors and insiders of Amex are expected to participate in the private placement for a maximum aggregate amount of $375,000. Pursuant to Policy 5.9 of the TSXV and Regulation 61-101 Respecting protection of minority security holders in special transactions (“Rule 61-101”), each of these transactions will constitute a “related party transaction” and as such, minority shareholder approval and a formal valuation may be required. However, the board expects that such transactions will meet the exemptions set out in Rule 61-101.
All securities issued pursuant to the private placement will be subject to a 4-month and one day hold period and the transaction remains subject to the receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals, including the final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
In connection with the private placement, Amex may enter into finder’s fee agreements with qualified persons and may pay a commission.
