Mega Precious Metals Inc. (TSX VENTURE:MGP) (“Mega” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it intends to complete a non-brokered private placement (the “Offering”) of units at a price of $0.11 per unit (the “Non-Flow-Through Units”) and flow-through units at a price of $0.12 per flow-through unit (the “Flow-Through Units), for aggregate gross proceeds of up to $3,000,000. Each Non-Flow-Through Unit will consist of one common share of the Company and one-half of one warrant (each a “Warrant”) to purchase common shares of the Company. Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one common share of the Company at an exercise price of $0.15 until 18 months following the closing date of the Offering. Each Flow-Through Unit will consist of one common share of the Company, which will qualify as a “flow-through share” within the meaning in the Income Tax Act (Canada) (the “Tax Act”) and one-half of one Warrant.
The gross proceeds from the sale of the Flow-Through Units will be used to incur “Canadian exploration expenses” (as such term is defined in the Tax Act), which will also qualify as flow-through mining expenditures” (as defined in the Tax Act provided the amendments to the term as contained in the February 11, 2014 federal budget become law), on the continued exploration of the Company’s Canadian mineral exploration projects. The net proceeds from the Non-Flow-Through Units will be used for general working capital purposes.
Pacific Road Resources Fund (“Pacific Road”) has confirmed that it intends to maintain its pro-rata share of the outstanding common shares of the Company following completion of the Offering on a diluted basis. Pacific Road currently holds approximately 19.9% of the common shares of the Company on a diluted basis.
In connection with the Offering, certain arm’s length parties may receive (i) a cash fee finder’s payment equal to up to 7% of the gross proceeds of the Non-Flow-Through Units and Flow-Through Units that are sold to subscribers introduced by such parties, and (ii) warrants (the “Finder’s Warrants”) to purchase that number of common shares of the Company equal to up to 7% of the Non-Flow-Through Units and Flow-Through Units that are sold to subscribers introduced by such parties, with the Finder’s Warrants having the same terms as the Warrants. The finder’s fee payment and the Finder’s Warrants are subject to the approval of, and will be issued in accordance with, the rules of the TSX Venture Exchange (“TSX-V”).
