Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - January 9, 2019) - Permex Petroleum Corporation (CSE: OIL) (the "Corporation") announced today that it is conducting a non-brokered private placement financing of a minimum of 2,500,000 units (the "Units") up to a maximum of 7,500,000 units (the "Units") at a price of C$0.20 per Unit (the "Offering"), for minimum aggregate proceeds of $500,000 up to a maximum of C$1,500,000. Each Unit will consist of one common share (a "Common Share") in the capital of the Corporation and one Common Share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"), with each Warrant entitling the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share of the Corporation at an exercise price of C$0.30 per Common Share for a period of 24 months from the closing of the Offering, subject to accelerated expiry in the event the price of the Corporation's shares closes at or greater than C$0.50 for ten consecutive trading days on the Canadian Securities Exchange.
All Common Shares issued in connection with the Offering will be subject to a four-month plus one day hold period under applicable Canadian securities laws. Finder's fees may be payable on all or a portion of the Offering to eligible finders of 8%.
All proceeds from the Offering will be used for starting new waterfloods, bringing online shut-in wells, and general working capital purposes. If the minimum amount is raised, $250,000 will be allocated towards shut-in wells, and the balance will be allocated towards working capital. If the maximum offering is raised, $750,000 will be allocated towards shut-in wells and waterfloods, and the balance towards working capital.
The Offering will permit participation of existing shareholders of the Corporation who held shares of the Corporation as of December 31, 2018 (the "Record Date") and who continue to hold shares of the Corporation as of the closing date of the Offering, pursuant to the existing security holder prospectus exemption available under BC Instrument 45-534 - Exemption from prospectus requirement for certain trades to existing security holders and equivalent provisions of other applicable securities laws (the "Existing Shareholder Exemption"). In addition, for those shareholders and for others who do not qualify under the Existing Shareholder Exemption, such persons may qualify to participate under other prospectus exemptions, such as the "accredited investor" (as the term is defined in the Securities Act (British Columbia) or other legislation applicable in the jurisdiction in which such subscriber resides) prospectus exemption.
To participate, shareholders relying on the Existing Shareholder Exemption will be required to represent in writing certain requirements of the Existing Shareholder Exemption, including that they were as of the Record Date and continue to be as of the closing date, a shareholder of the Corporation, and that they are purchasing the Offering Shares as principal for their own account. The aggregate acquisition cost to a shareholder relying on the Existing Shareholder Exemption, and not the "accredited investor" prospectus exemption, cannot exceed C$15,000 in the 12-month period immediately preceding the closing date of the Offering, unless that shareholder has obtained advice regarding suitability of the investment from a registered investment dealer in the shareholder's jurisdiction.
