TORONTO, Oct. 15, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Integra Resources Corp. (“Integra” or the “Company”) (TSX-V:ITR; OTCQX:IRRZF) is pleased to announce that it intends to raise approximately C$14 million via a C$10 million bought deal public offering (the “Public Offering”) of common shares (the “Common Shares”) of the Company at a price of $0.80 per Common Share (the “Issue Price”) and a C$4 million non-brokered offering (the “Non-Brokered Offering”).
Raymond James Ltd. is acting as lead underwriter and sole bookrunner under the Public Offering on behalf of a syndicate of underwriters (the “Underwriters”). The Common Shares will be offered by way of a short form prospectus to be filed in each of the provinces of Canada, with the exception of the province of Quebec, by way of a private placement in the United States, and in those jurisdictions outside of Canada and the United States which are agreed to by the Company and the Underwriters, where the Common Shares can be issued on a private placement basis, exempt from any prospectus, registration or other similar requirements.
The Company has agreed to grant the Underwriters an over-allotment option to purchase up to an additional 15% of Common Shares under the Public Offering at the Issue Price, exercisable in whole or in part at any time for a period ending 30 days from the closing of the Offering. In the event the over-allotment option is exercised in full, the aggregate gross proceeds of the Public Offering will be approximately $11,516,500.
The Public Offering is expected to close on or about November 6, 2018 and is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “Exchange”).
The Non-Brokered Offering is expected to consist of a private placement of up to $4 million of special warrants at a price of $0.80 per special warrant, issued to accredited investors that closes on or before completion of the Public Offering, followed by conversion of the special warrants to Common Shares for no additional consideration through the filing of a short form prospectus. The closing of the Non-Brokered Offering is subject to conditions, including approval of the Exchange.
The net proceeds from the offerings will be used to fund exploration and development expenditures at the DeLamar Project and for general corporate purposes.
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 U.S. state securities laws, and may not be offered or sold in the United States without registration under the U.S. Securities Act and all applicable state securities laws or compliance with the requirements of an applicable exemption therefrom. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy securities in the United States, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
