Antler Hill Mining announces Update of Qualifying Transaction and Concurrent Financing
TORONTO, Feb. 07, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Antler Hill Mining Ltd. (TSXV: AHM.H) (the “Corporation” or “Antler Hill”) announces that further to the Corporation’s press release issued on September 4, 2018 with respect to its qualifying transaction with Entropy SA (the “Qualifying Transaction”), the Corporation has finalized the terms of it concurrent non-brokered private placement for minimum gross proceeds of $750,000 and up to maximum gross proceeds of $1,500,000 (the “Offering”).
The Offering will consist of units (the “Units”) offered for sale at a price of $0.10 per Unit, consisting of one common share in the capital of the Corporation (a “Common Share”) and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one Common Share at a price of $0.20 per Common Share for a period of 24 months after completion of the Offering, whereupon the Warrants will expire.
Closing of the Offering is conditional upon receiving TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV”) conditional approval for completion of the Qualifying Transaction. If the Corporation does not receive conditional approval for its Qualifying Transaction, all funds held in trust will be returned to subscribers and the Offering will not be completed. The Offering is expected to close concurrently with the Qualifying Transaction in February 2019.
As consideration for services provided in connection with the Offering, Antler Hill intends to pay the following compensation to eligible finders: (a) cash commission equal to 6% of total gross proceeds raised; and, (b) finder compensation warrants (each a “Finder Warrant”) equal to 6% of the number of Units sold. Each Finder Warrant will entitle the holder to acquire one Common Share at a price of $0.10 per Common Share for a period of 24 months after completion of the Offering.
Proceeds of the Offering will fund Antler Hill’s exploration activities following completion of the Qualifying Transaction, as well as general and administrative expenses.
Antler Hill and Entropy SA entered into a definitive mineral properties purchase agreement (the “Agreement”) which sets out the terms and conditions pursuant to which the Corporation has the right to acquire from Entropy SA a 100% interest in two mineral projects located in San Juan Province, Argentina, the Cerro Blanco project and the Amiches project (the “Properties”).
Pursuant to the Agreement, total consideration of US$1 million and 1,800,000 Common Shares in staged payments over seven years and on meeting certain conditions will be paid to Entropy SA. The deemed price per Common Share issued to Entropy SA in consideration for the Properties is $0.10 per Common Share.
The initial payment of US$100,000 (less advance payments of approximately $20,000) to be paid to Entropy SA on closing of the transaction will be paid out of $387,000 cash available as of December 31, 2018. After completion of the Offering, the Corporation will have adequate working capital and financial resources to complete its $429,500 phase I work program on the Properties and meet TSXV tier 2 initial listing requirements.
Sponsorship of a Qualifying Transaction of a capital pool company is also required by the TSXV unless exempt or waived by the TSXV. The transaction may require sponsorship and while Antler Hill intends to request that this requirement be waived, it plans to provide a news release update should a sponsor be retained.
Antler Hill has submitted a filing statement to the TSXV and is currently addressing comments received. When conditional approval for the Qualifying Transaction is granted by the TSXV, Antler Hill intends to file its filing statement on its SEDAR profile page and proceed with closing of the Offering.
