VANCOUVER, Jan. 14, 2020 /CNW/ - Osino Resources Corp. (TSXV: OSI) (FSE: RSR1) ("Osino" or the "Company"), is pleased to announce that, in connection with its previously announced overnight marketed offering, it has entered into an underwriting agreement with a syndicate of underwriters led by Cormark Securities Inc., and including M Partners Inc., Canaccord Genuity Corp., Beacon Securities Limited and Haywood Securities Inc. (collectively, the "Underwriters"), to sell 12,821,000 units of the Company (the "Units") at a price of C$0.78 per Unit (the "Offering Price") for aggregate gross proceeds of C$10,000,380 (the "Offering").
Each Unit will consist of one common share in the capital of the Company (each a "Common Share") and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant shall entitle the holder to acquire an additional Common Share at a price of C$1.05 for a period of 24 months following the closing of the Offering. Further, in the event that the Company's common share price closes at C$1.09 following 9 months of the closing of the Offering, for 5 consecutive trading days, the Company may, within 15 days of the occurrence of such event, deliver a notice to the holders of Warrants accelerating the expiry date of the Warrants to the date that is 30 days following such notice, and any unexercised Warrants after such period shall automatically expire.
The Company has granted the Underwriters an option (the "Over-Allotment Option") to purchase up to an additional 15% of the Units of the Offering on the same terms exercisable at any time up to 30 days following the closing of the Offering, for market stabilization purposes and to cover over-allotments, if any.
Closing of the Offering is expected to occur on or about January 30, 2020 and is subject to certain conditions, including regulatory approval, including that of the TSX Venture Exchange.
The net proceeds of the Offering shall be used to fund expenditures at the Company's exploration projects in Namibia and for general working capital purposes.
The Units to be issued under the Offering will be offered by way of a short form prospectus in each of each of the provinces of Canada, other than Quebec, and may be offered in the United States on a private placement basis pursuant to an exemption from the registration requirements of the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and applicable state securities laws, and certain other jurisdictions outside of Canada and the United States.
