Goliath Resources Announces Upsize of Brokered Private Placement for Gross Proceeds of up to C$9.65 Million
TORONTO, May 02, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Goliath Resources Limited (TSX-V: GOT) (OTCQB: GOTRF) (Frankfurt: B4IF) (the “Company” or “Goliath”) is pleased to announce that due to significant investor demand, the Company has amended its agreement with Red Cloud Securities Inc. (the “Agent”), as sole agent and bookrunner, to increase the maximum gross proceeds under the previously announced “best-efforts” private placement (the “Offering”) from C$9.0 million to C$9.65 million.
Under the revised Offering, up to 8,500,000 flow-through units may be sold to charitable purchasers (each, a “Charity FT Unit”) at a price of C$1.00 per Charity FT Unit (the “Offering Price”) for gross proceeds of up to C$8,500,000 (the “Marketed Offering”). The Agent will have an option, exercisable in full or in part, up to 48 hours prior to the closing of the Offering, to sell up to an additional 1,150,000 Charity FT Units (the “Agent’s Option Units”) at the Offering Price for additional gross proceeds of up to C$1,150,000 (the “Agent’s Option”, and collectively with the Marketed Offering, the “Offering”).
Each Charity FT Unit will consist of one common share of the Company (each, a “Common Share”) to be issued as a “flow-through share” within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada) (each, a “FT Share”) and one half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”). Each whole Warrant shall entitle the holder to purchase one Common Share at a price of C$0.92 at any time on or before that date which is 24 months after the closing date of the Offering.
Proceeds from the sale of FT Shares will be used to incur “Canadian exploration expenses” as defined in subsection 66.1 (6) of the Income Tax Act and “flow through mining expenditures” as defined in subsection 127(9) of the Income Tax Act (the “Qualifying Expenditures”). Such proceeds will be renounced to the subscribers of Charity FT Units with an effective date not later than December 31, 2023, in the aggregate amount of not less than the total amount of gross proceeds raised from the issue of FT Shares.
The Company intends to use most of the proceeds from the Offering for Qualifying Expenditures for drilling focused on expanding the footprint of its new Surebet discovery at its 100% controlled Golddigger property located in the Golden Triangle, British Columbia. The Offering is scheduled to close on or around May 18, 2023 and is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, receipt of all necessary approvals including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
Subject to compliance with applicable regulatory requirements and in accordance with National Instrument 45-106 – Prospectus Exemptions (“NI 45-106”), up to 6,150,000 of the Charity FT Units that may be sold pursuant to the Marketed Offering will be offered in all the provinces of Canada (the “Selling Jurisdictions”) pursuant to the listed issuer financing exemption under Part 5A of NI 45-106 (the “Listed Issuer Financing Exemption”). The securities issuable from the potential sale of these up to 6,150,000 Charity FT Units are expected to be immediately freely tradeable under the Listed Issuer Financing Exemption if sold to purchasers resident in Canada. There is an offering document related to the Offering that can be accessed under the Company’s profile at www.sedar.com and on the Company’s website at www://goliathresourcesltd.com. Prospective investors should read this offering document before making an investment decision.
The up to 2,350,000 remaining Charity FT Units that may be sold pursuant to the Marketed Offering as well as the Agent’s Option Units will be offered by way of the “accredited investor” and “minimum amount investment” exemptions under NI 45-106 in the Canadian Selling Jurisdictions. The securities issuable from the potential sale of these 2,350,000 Charity FT Units pursuant to the Marketed Offering as well as the Agent’s Option Units will be subject to a restricted period in Canada ending on the date that is four months plus one day following the closing date of the Offering.
