TSX VENTURE: FFOX
VANCOUVER, Sept. 11, 2019 /CNW/ - FireFox Gold Corp. ("FireFox" or the "Company") announces, effective September 9th, 2019 that it has completed the first tranche of a non-brokered private placement (the "Private Placement") by issuing 1,973,333 units of the Company at a purchase price of $0.15 per unit for gross proceeds of $296,000. Each unit consists of one common share of the Company and one non-transferrable common share purchase warrant. Each warrant shall be exercisable into one additional common share of the Company for a period of two years from the closing of the offering at an exercise price of $0.20. Subject to regulatory acceptance, the Company intends to complete a second tranche of the Private Placement by September 15th, 2019.
Two related parties participated in the transaction, having subscribed for a total of 440,000 units for gross proceeds of $66,000. The Company is relying on the exemptions from the valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 contained in sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101, as the fair market value of the participation in the offering by insiders does not exceed 25 per cent of the market capitalization of the Company, as determined in accordance with MI 61-101. The Company did not file a material change report in respect of the related party transaction at least 21 days before the closing of the offering, which the Company deems reasonable in the circumstances in order to complete the offering in an expeditious manner.
After closing this tranche of the financing, FireFox has 38.9 million shares outstanding, 13.8 million warrants, and 3.5 million stock options issued.
The shares issued pursuant to the offering will be subject to a statutory hold period of four months plus one day from the date of issuance, in accordance with applicable securities legislation.
