VICTORIA, BC / ACCESSWIRE / August 20, 2020 / Erin Ventures Inc. ("Erin" or the "Company") (TSXV:EV) announces that, further to its announced proposed private placement on July 7, 2020, and subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV"), it is increasing the number of securities offered and reducing the price of its private placement to be up to 12,000,000 units of the Company ("Units") at a price of $0.04 per Unit for gross proceeds of up to $480,000.00 (the "Offering"). Erin also announces a proposed share for debt settlement with a creditor subject to the approval of the TSXV.
Each Unit in this Offering will be comprised of one (1) common share in the capital of the Company (a "Share") and one (1) common share purchase warrant (each, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will have a two (2) year term and will be exercisable into one (1) Share at a price of $0.05.
The Company intends to use 55% of the net proceeds from the Offering, whether fully subscribed or not, to fund further development of its wholly owned Piskanja boron project in Serbia and 45% of the net proceeds from the Offering for general working capital purposes (consisting of payroll 28%, suppliers 11% and contractors 61%).
The Offering will be on a private placement basis pursuant to prospectus exemptions of applicable securities laws and is subject to final acceptance by the TSXV. Depending on demand and regulatory requirements, a portion of the Offering may be made to existing security holders of Company ("Shareholders") in accordance with the provisions of the existing shareholder exemption (the "Existing Shareholder Exemption") pursuant to BC Instrument 45-534 (the Existing Shareholder Exemption is not available in Ontario or Newfoundland and Labrador). In addition to conducting the Offering pursuant to the Existing Shareholder Exemption, Units will be offered to accredited investors, close personal friends and business associates of directors and officers of the Company, and certain investors who have been advised on the suitability of their investment by registered investment dealers (the "Registered Advisor Exemption").
The Company has set July 6, 2020 as the record date for the purpose of determining shareholders entitled to purchase Units relying on the Existing Shareholder Exemption. The aggregate acquisition cost to a subscriber relying on the Existing Shareholder Exemption cannot exceed $15,000 in a 12-month period unless the subscriber has obtained advice from a registered investment dealer regarding the suitability of the investment.
Unless the Company determines to increase the gross proceeds of the Offering and receives TSXV approval for such increase, if subscriptions by existing Shareholders exceed the maximum number of Units proposed to be distributed after having first satisfied the subscriptions of those subscribers relying on other prospectus exemptions, subscribers relying on the Existing Shareholder Exemption will be entitled to a pro rata portion of the balance of Units available under the Offering.
Existing Shareholders are directed to contact the Company for further information concerning subscriptions for Units pursuant to the Existing Shareholder Exemption, as follows:

The Units, and any Warrant Shares issued in the Offering, will be subject to a four-month hold period. The proposed Offering is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
In accordance with the requirements under the Existing Shareholder Exemption and the Registered Advisor Exemption, there is no material fact or material change about the issuer that has not been generally disclosed.
The Shares for Debt Settlement
Erin also announces that it has entered into an agreement to settle $37,743 in existing debt owing to an arm's length creditor (the "Creditor") through the issuance of common shares. Subject to approval of the TSXV, the Company agreed to issue 754,860 common shares at a deemed price of $0.05 per common share to settle the indebtedness with the Creditor.
