Triumph Gold Announces Private Placement
TSX VENTURE: TIG
NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWS WIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES.
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 16, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Triumph Gold Corp. ("Triumph Gold" or the “Company”) (TSX Venture Exchange: TIG) (OTCMKTS: TIGCF) (Frankfurt: 8N61) is pleased to announce its intention to complete a non-brokered private placement (the "Offering") of up to 17,000,000 units (the "Units") at a price of CDN$0.35 per Unit for gross proceeds of up to CDN$5,950,000. Each Unit will consist of one common share in the capital of the Company (a “Share”) and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole common share purchase warrant, a “Warrant”). Each whole Warrant will be exercisable to acquire one Share at an exercise price of CDN$0.60 per Share for a period of 24 months from the date of issuance.
The Offering is available to investors in reliance on certain prospectus exemptions including to existing shareholders of the Company (the "Existing Security Holder Exemption") and to investors who have received investment advice (the "Investment Dealer Exemption"). The Existing Security Holder Exemption is available in each of the provinces and territories of Canada to a person or company who became a shareholder of the Company on or before April 9, 2019 (the “Record Date”). To rely upon the Existing Security Holder Exemption, the shareholder must: (a) have been a shareholder of the Company on the Record Date and continue to hold shares of the Company until the date of closing of the Offering, (b) be purchasing the Shares as a principal and for their own account and not for any other party, and (c) not subscribe for more than CDN$15,000 of securities from the Company in any 12-month period unless the shareholder has obtained advice regarding the suitability of the investment from a person registered as an investment dealer in the shareholder’s jurisdiction.
The Investment Dealer Exemption is available in each of Alberta, British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and New Brunswick to a person or company who has obtained advice regarding the suitability of the investment from a person registered as an investment dealer in such person’s or company’s jurisdiction. As required by the Existing Security Holder Exemption and Investment Dealer Exemption, the Company confirms there is no material fact or material change relating to the Company that has not been generally disclosed.
There is no minimum Offering size and the maximum offering is 17,000,000 Units for gross proceeds of CDN$5,950,000. Assuming the Offering is fully subscribed, the Company plans to allocate the gross proceeds of the Offering to: (i) exploration on its Freegold Mountain project (CDN$5,000,000) and (ii) general working capital (CDN$1,000,000).
If the Offering is not fully subscribed, the Company will apply the proceeds to the above uses in priority and in such proportions as the Board of Directors and management of the Company determine is in the best interests of the Company. Although the Company intends to use the proceeds of the Offering as described above, the actual allocation of proceeds may vary from the uses set out above depending on future operations, events or opportunities.
If the Offering is oversubscribed, unless the Company determines to increase the maximum gross proceeds of the Offering and receives approval from the TSX Venture Exchange for such increase, the Company will allocate the Units issued under the Offering to those subscribers whose subscriptions were first received by the Company. A subscription will be deemed to be received when a completed subscription agreement together with payment of the subscription amount has been received by the Company.
Certain insiders of the Company may acquire Units in the Offering. Any participation by insiders in the Offering would constitute a "related party transaction" as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”). However, the Company expects such participation would be exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as neither the fair market value of the Units subscribed for by the insiders, nor the consideration for the Units paid by such insiders, would exceed 25% of the Company's market capitalization.
The Company may pay finder’s fees on a portion of the Offering, subject to compliance with the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange and applicable securities legislation.
Closing of the Offering is subject to approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
The securities issued under the Offering, and any Shares that may be issuable on exercise of any such securities, will be subject to a statutory hold period expiring four months and one day from the date of issuance of such securities. Additional resale restrictions and legends may apply in the United States and other jurisdictions.
