TORONTO, Ontario (May 7, 2020) – Pelangio Exploration Inc. (PX:TSX-V; OTC PINK:PGXPF) (“Pelangio” or the “Company”) announces a non-brokered private placement for aggregate gross proceeds of up to $840,000 (the “Offering’). The Offering will consist of the sale of hard dollar units (the “HD Units”) of the Company at a price of $0.12 per HD Unit and common shares of the Company issued on a flow-through basis (the “FT Shares”) at a price of $0.14 per FT Share.
Each HD Unit consists of one common share of the Company (a “Common Share”) and one Common Share purchase warrant (“Warrant”). Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one Common Share at a price of $0.18 for a period of two years from the initial closing date of the Offering. The FT Shares will qualify as “flow-through shares” (within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada)). The gross proceeds from the sale of the FT Shares will be used to incur qualifying Canadian Exploration Expenses. Qualifying expenses are to be incurred by no later than December 31, 2021 for renunciation to investors of FT Shares in the Offering effective December 31, 2020. The balance of the proceeds of the Offering will be used for general corporate and working capital purposes, and for the development of the Company’s mining projects.
The shares issued under the Offering will be subject to a four-month and one day hold period and will not be sold in the United States. The Offering is subject to customary closing conditions including, but not limited to, receipt of applicable regulatory approvals, including approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
The closing of the Offering may occur in one or more tranches, with the initial closing date of the Offering expected to occur on or before June 1, 2020 and is not subject to receipt of a minimum amount of gross proceeds. The Company may pay to certain introducing parties in respect of the Offering finder’s fees of up to 7% cash and non-transferable 7% warrants, subject to compliance with applicable securities legislation and TSX Venture Exchange policies. Closing is subject to customary closing conditions including but not limited to, receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals, including approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
The securities issued pursuant to the Offering will be subject to a four-month and one day hold period in accordance with applicable Canadian securities laws and TSX Venture Exchange policies.
