VANCOUVER, BC, March 17, 2023 /CNW/ - MCF Energy Ltd. (TSXV: MCF) (FRA: DC6) (OTCPK: MCFNF) ("MCF Energy" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced non-brokered financing (the "Financing") of subscription receipts. Pursuant to the Financing, the Company's subsidiary, 1401771 B.C. Ltd. has issued an aggregate of 24,799,000 Subscription Receipts at $0.50 for gross proceeds of $12,399,500. The Financing was up-sized from $8,000,000 and $12,000,000 due to significant demand. Each subscription receipt will convert into one common share of MCF Energy concurrently with the closing of the previously announced acquisition (the "Acquisition") of all of the outstanding shares of Genexco GmbH (See the Company's January 23 and February 22, 2023 news releases for additional details on the Acquisition and the Financing). Finders fees of $500,470 and 1,000,940 warrants, exercisable at $0.62 per share for a period of 12 months, which are payable in respect of the Financing and will be paid on closing of the Acquisition. Gross proceeds from the Financing will be held in escrow pending closing of the Acquisition and will be used to finance the Company's initial obligations under the Genexco agreement and for general working capital. The common shares of the Company to be issued on conversion of the Subscription Receipts will not be subject to any hold periods under applicable securities laws.
Jim Hill, CEO of MCF Energy, stated, "We are thankful for the continued support of our investors who have provided us with over $20 million of capital in 2023 to execute acquisition, exploration and development activity within Western Europe. MCF has elected to retain and not increase its 20 percent interest in Austria's massive Welchau gas prospect with drilling anticipated prior to September 2023. This minority interest in a high-impact project offers a significant potential outcome for an initial EUR 1.9 million investment (estimate). MCF Energy anticipates the formal closure of its German - Genexco acquisition within the next two weeks and remains committed to pursuing additional large natural gas prospects to help secure Europe's clean energy future."
