Thunder Bay, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - June 16, 2021) - Red Metal Resources Ltd. (OTC Pink: RMES) (the "Company" or "Red Metal") is pleased to announce that it has closed its oversubscribed non-brokered private placement of 6,460,872 subscription receipts at a price of $0.15 per subscription receipt (each, a "Subscription Receipt"), previously announced on February 17, 2021 for gross proceeds of $969,131 (the "SR Offering"). Further to the news release dated May 19, 2021 announcing the closing of the unit offering (the "Unit Offering"),with a lead order from AlphaNorth Asset Management, the Company has raised aggregate gross proceeds of $1,546,581.2 in total through the SR Offering and the Unit Offering combined.
In connection with the SR Offering, the Company entered into a subscription receipt agreement with Computershare Trust Company dated June 15, 2021 (the "SR Agreement") pursuant to which the proceeds of the SR Offering (the "Escrowed Funds") have been deposited in escrow. The Escrowed Funds will be held in escrow pending satisfaction of the escrow release conditions in full pursuant to the terms of the SR Agreement (the "Escrow Release Conditions"), including but not limited to the Company completing the listing of its common shares on a recognized stock exchange in Canada. Upon satisfaction of the Escrow Release Conditions (the "Escrow Release Date"), the Escrowed Funds, after deducting certain finder's fees payable in connection of the SR Financing, will be released to the Company and each Subscription Receipt will be automatically converted without any further action on the part of the holder thereof into one SR Unit (as defined below).
In connection with the SR Offering, the Company agreed to pay finders fees to certain registered broker dealers payable on the Escrow Release Date consisting of: (1) a cash commission in an amount equal to 7% of the gross proceeds raised from subscribers to the SR Offering who were introduced by such finders, and (2) finders warrants in an amount equal to 7% of the number of Subscription Receipts purchased by subscribers introduced by such finders to the Company (the "Finder's Warrants"). The Finder's Warrants will be on the same terms as the SR Warrants as defined below.
Each SR Unit will consist of one common share of the Company and one common share purchase warrant (each a "SR Warrant"). Each SR Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase an additional common share of the Company at a price of CAD$0.30 per common share, if exercised during the first year following the Escrow Release Date, and at a price of CAD$0.60, if exercised during the second year following the Escrow Release Date. Pursuant to the terms of the SR Offering, in the event that the Company does not meet the Escrow Release Conditions by September 30, 2021 (or such later date as may be agreed to by the Company), the escrow agent shall return to the holders of the Subscription Receipts an amount equal to the aggregate purchase price paid for the Subscription Receipts held by each holder, and each Subscription Receipt shall be cancelled and be of no further force or effect. The SR Units and all underlying securities to be issued pursuant to the SR Offering will be subject to a four-month hold period under applicable Canadian securities laws.
The proceeds of the SR Offering are intended to be used to advance Red Metal's flagship Carrizal copper-gold-cobalt property in Atacama, Chile and for working capital purposes.
Caitlin Jeffs, P.Geo., President and CEO of the Company, commented, "We are extremely pleased to have closed this upsized financing. The over-subscription attests to the quality of not only our project, but also our team. We welcome all as new shareholders of Red Metal and look forward to a safe and prosperous 2021."
The securities referred to herein will not be or have not been registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration requirements.
