Global Energy Metals’ Early Warrant Exercise Incentive Program Submission Denied by TSX Venture Exchange for Being Too Advantageous
November 23, 2021 (Source) — Global Energy Metals Corporation (TSXV:GEMC) (OTC:GBLEF) (FSE:5GE1) (“Global Energy Metals”, the “Company” and/or “GEMC”), a company involved in the investment exposure to the battery metals supply chain, regretfully announces that further to its news release dated November 15, 2021, that it has been denied approval from the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV”) for an incentive program (the “Incentive Program”) submission to encourage the early exercise of up to 4,794,000 outstanding share purchase warrants (the “Warrants”).
The TSXV does not have a published policy with respect to warrant incentive programs and submissions are reviewed on a case by case basis with decisions made following internal guidelines.
Under these internal guidelines, the TSXV denied GEMC’s Incentive Program submission as, although warrants can be “in- the-money”, the current exercise price of the Warrants of $0.15 was significantly less than the Company’s Discounted Market Price at the time of submission. Furthermore, the TSXV noted that the Company does not qualify for the Exchange’s Warrant Incentive Program based on the fact that the warrant holders would be getting a further incentive from exercising their Warrants given that the Warrant exercise price is significantly “in-the-money” compared to the current trading price of the Company’s shares.
The Company regrets any confusion it may have created with the proposed Incentive Program and holds firm that any additional capital generated by the exercising of Warrants would still be beneficial in allowing for the continued advancement of the Company’s ongoing exploration initiatives including expanding the existing work programs at the battery mineral rich Lovelock Cobalt Nickel Copper Mine and Treasure Box projects in Nevada and the Monument Peak Copper-Silver-Gold project in Idaho.
The Warrants were originally issued as part of units of the Company issued pursuant to a private placement financing completed on September 29, 2020. Each Warrant remains exercisable to acquire one common share of the Company at a price of $0.15 per share and will expire on September 7 and September 28, 2023.
