Fox River Announces Increase in Private Placement Financing to $2,300,000
TORONTO, Feb. 21, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Fox River Resources Corporation (the “Company”) (CSE: FOX) is pleased to announce that as a result of increased demand, the non-brokered private placement previously announced on February 16, 2023 will now consist of up to 11,500,000 common shares at a price of $0.20 per common share for gross proceeds of up to $2,300,000 (the “Offering”).
The proceeds of the Offering will be used for the exploration and advancement of the Company’s Martison Phosphate Project, and for general corporate purposes. Any securities to be issued in connection with the Offering will be subject to a hold period of four months and one day from the date of issuance. A finder’s fee in cash or shares and non-transferable warrants may be paid to eligible finders in relation to the Offering, subject to compliance with the policies of the Canadian Securities Exchange and applicable securities legislation.
The Company anticipates that officers and directors of the Corporation (collectively, the “Insiders”) may participate in the Offering, up to a maximum of 10% of the number of common shares to be sold thereunder.
The Offering will be considered a “related party transaction” pursuant to Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”) as a result of the insider participation. Pursuant to Sections 5.5(b) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101, the Company is exempt from the requirements to obtain a formal valuation and minority shareholder approval because the Shares trade on the CSE and the fair market value of insiders’ participation in the Offering will be below 25% of the Company’s market capitalization for purposes of MI 61-101. The Company will file a material change report in respect of the Offering, but it may be filed less than 21 days in advance of the closing of the Offering, which the Company deems reasonable in the circumstances so as to be able to avail itself of potential financing opportunities and to complete the Offering in an expeditious manner.
This news release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to sell any of the securities in the United States. The securities have not been and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “U.S. Securities Act”) or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold within the United States or to U.S. Persons unless registered under the U.S. Securities Act and applicable state securities laws or an exemption from such registration is available.
