Update on Non-Brokered Private Placement
On June 1, 2018, the Company announced a non-brokered private placement financing of up to 2,000,000 units (the "Units") at a price of $2.00 per Unit, for total gross proceeds of up to $4,000,000 (the "Offering"). Each Unit consists of one common share of the Company ("Common Share") and one-half Common Share purchase warrant ("Warrant"). Each whole Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one Common Share at an exercise price of $3.00 for a period of 18 months following closing of the Offering. The Offering includes an over-allotment option, allowing Aurania to issue up to an additional 500,000 Units for additional gross proceeds of up to $1,000,000.
There has been strong interest in the private placement which is reaching capacity, and investors interested in participating should register their interest via the link on the Company's website http://www.aurania.com/investors/private-placement/ at their earliest convenience.
The online subscription process is working well, and funds are being successfully received into an escrow account via credit card — a first for the Company. It is important to note that the Company is making the placement available to eligible existing shareholders, irrespective of whether they are accredited investors, through the "Existing Shareholder Exemption" that applies in Canada and elsewhere. If the Offering is over-subscribed, it is possible that a shareholder's subscription may not be accepted by the Company even though it is received.
