TORONTO, Nov. 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Integra Resources Corp. (“Integra” or the “Company”) (TSX-V:ITR; OTCQX:IRRZF) is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced bought deal financing, including the exercise in full of the underwriters’ over-allotment option. A total of 14,375,000 common shares (the “Common Shares”) of the Company were sold at a price of $0.80 per Common Share, for aggregate gross proceeds of $11,500,000 (the “Offering”).
The Company plans to use the net proceeds from the Offering to fund exploration and development expenditures at the DeLamar Project and for general corporate purposes.
George Salamis, President and CEO of Integra Resources commented, “Given the difficult market conditions currently facing companies in the mining sector, we are extremely pleased with the investor demand shown in this recent financing, completing a financing with no warrants and at a minimal discount to the market share price. We are very happy to have added a new group of shareholders to our share registry, highlighted by the addition of several prominent European and North American institutional funds and large retail investors.” Mr. Salamis continued, “Integra has enjoyed a very successful 2018 on the exploration front, and we are keen to build on the momentum from our first exploration program at DeLamar as we look to grow the current inferred gold-silver resource in Idaho and explore new areas of the highly prospective DeLamar district.”
The Offering was made through a syndicate of underwriters led by Raymond James Ltd., including PI Financial Corp., BMO Capital Markets, and GMP Securities L.P. (the “Underwriters”). The Underwriters received a cash commission equal to 6% of the gross proceeds of the Offering (other than from the issue and sale of the Common Shares to certain purchasers on a president’s list, for which a 3% cash commission was paid). The Offering was completed by way of a short form prospectus filed in all of the provinces and territories of Canada, except Québec, and offered and sold elsewhere outside of Canada on a private placement basis.
