Encanto Potash Corp. (“Encanto” or the “Corporation“) (TSXV: EPO) (OTCQX: ENCTF) is pleased to announce that it has filed, and received a receipt for, a preliminary short form prospectus in the Provinces of British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Ontario to raise gross proceeds of up to $6,000,000 (the “Offering“) through the issuance of units (“Units“) and flow-through units (“Flow-Through Units“).
Encanto will raise up to $5,000,000 from the sale of the Units, with each such Unit consisting of one common share and one half of one share purchase warrant, each whole warrant entitling the holder to purchase one common share for a period of 18 months from the closing date of the Offering.
Encanto will raise up to $1,000,000 from the sale of the Flow-Through Units, with each such Flow-Through Unit consisting of one flow through common share (“FT Share“) and one half of one share purchase warrant, each whole warrant entitling the holder to purchase one non flow-through common share for a period of 18 months from the closing date of the Offering. The FT Shares will be “flow-through” shares pursuant to the Income Tax Act (Canada).
Secutor Capital Management Corporation (“Secutor“) has agreed to act as lead agent in connection with the offering and Haywood Securities Inc. (“Haywood“) has agreed to act as agent (Secutor and Haywood collectively the “Agents“). The pricing of the Units and Flow-Through Units and the exercise price of the warrants will be established before the filing of the final prospectus by negotiation between Encanto and the Agents.
The proceeds from the sale of the Units will be used for general working capital. The proceeds from the sale of the Flow-Through Units will be used by the Encanto to incur eligible Canadian Exploration Expenses as defined by the Income Tax Act (Canada).
The Corporation has granted the Agents an over-allotment option (the “Over-Allotment Option“), exercisable in whole or in part, at the sole discretion of the Agents, for a period of 30 days from the closing date of the Offering, to purchase that number of additional Units (the “Additional Units“) at the offering price per Unit and having the same terms as the Units, as is equal to 15% of the aggregate number of Units and Flow-Through Units sold under the Offering solely to cover over allotments, if any.
In consideration for the services rendered by the Agents in connection with the Offering, the Agents will be paid a cash fee equal to 6% of the gross proceeds of the Offering, including any proceeds received pursuant to the exercise of the Over-Allotment Option. As additional compensation, the Corporation will grant to the Agents compensation options (the “Compensation Options“) exercisable to purchase that number of common shares (the “Compensation Shares“) as is equal to 4% of the total number of Units and Flow-Through Units sold pursuant to the Offering, including any Additional Units sold pursuant to the exercise of the Over-Allotment Option. Each Compensation Option will entitle the holder thereof to acquire one Compensation Share at a price equal to the offering price of the Units, until the date which is 12 months following the closing date of the Offering.
