Vancouver, British Columbia (FSCwire) - Prophecy Development Corp. (“Prophecy” or the “Company”) (TSX:PCY, OTC:PRPCD, Frankfurt:1P2N) is pleased to report that the non-brokered private placement of 150,000 units for $570,000 previously announced on August 8, 2016 was oversubscribed. As a result, the Company closed today the private placement of 202,735 units (each a “Unit”) at a price of $3.80 per Unit for gross proceeds of $770,393 (the “Placement”). Each Unit consists of one Common share in the capital of the Company (a “Share”) and one half of one Share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”). Each Warrant entitles the holder to acquire an additional Share at a price of $4.40 per Share for a period of five years from the date of issuance.
The Warrants will be subject to the following acceleration conditions:
(i) in the event that the closing price of the Shares trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange (the “TSX”) exceeds $8.80 per Common Share; or
(ii) the closing spot price of silver as quoted by KITCO Metals Inc. exceeds USD$28.00 per ounce,
in either instance, for a period of over 28 consecutive calendar days, at Prophecy’s election, the exercise period may be reduced in which case, Warrant holders will only be entitled to exercise their Warrants for a period of 30 days from the date the Company either disseminates a press release or sends written notice to the Warrant holders advising them of the reduced and accelerated exercise period after which, the Warrants will expire.
The Shares will be subject to a minimum hold period of four months plus one day from the date of issue.
The Company paid in cash, total finder’s fees of $3,464.65 in connection with the Placement.
Proceeds of the Placement are expected to be used to develop Prophecy’s mineral projects and for general working capital purposes.
The Company also announces that John Lee, of Suite 1301, 12 Harcourt Road, Central, Hong Kong, Executive Chairman of the Company, acquired 60,000 Units pursuant to the Placement for total consideration of $228,000.
Prior to the Placement, Mr. Lee beneficially owned 1,009,953 Shares, representing approximately 22.16% of the issued and outstanding shares of the Company. In addition, Mr. Lee holds 137,873 incentive stock options, each entitling him to acquire one Share.
As a result of the Placement, Mr. Lee now beneficially owns and exercises control over an aggregate of 1,069,953 Shares representing an interest of approximately 22.47% of the Company's currently issued and outstanding Shares, 22.96% of the Company's Shares on a partially diluted basis assuming full exercise of only the 30,000 Warrants attached to Mr. Lee’s 60,000 Placement Units, and 34.33% of the Company's Shares on a fully diluted basis assuming exercise of all of the Company's outstanding share purchase warrants.
The 60,000 Placement Units were acquired by Mr. Lee for investment purposes only, and not for purposes of exercising control or direction over the Company.
Generally, Mr. Lee intends to evaluate his investment in the Company and to increase or decrease his shareholdings as circumstances require, depending on market conditions and other factors, through market transactions, private agreements or otherwise.
