Texas Rare Earth Resources Announces Extension of Rights Offering to January 21st
January 13, 2015 (Source: Marketwired) — Texas Rare Earth Resources Corp. (OTCQX: TRER), an exploration company specializing in the heavy rare earths, announces an extension of the deadline to subscribe to its previously announced rights offering to 5 PM EST, January 21, 2015. TRER is extending its rights offering subscription period because the holiday season created delays in the distribution of the rights to certain holders of the company holding their shares of common stock through broker-dealers and other nominees. Many shareholders have just recently received their rights certificates or instructions from their brokers on how to exercise their rights. To ensure that these holders have adequate time to consider the rights and complete their subscriptions, TRER has determined to extend the exercise period for one week. The majority of management and the board of directors plan to participate in the rights offering.
The rights offering is for units of TRER (“Units”) for gross aggregate proceeds of up to $1.63 million. TRER has set a subscription price for the rights of $0.22 per Unit (the “Subscription Price”), with each Unit consisting of one share of the Company’s common stock, one five year non-transferable Class A warrant exercisable for one share of the Company’s common stock at $0.35 per share and one five year non-transferable Class B warrant exercisable for one share of the Company’s common stock at $0.45 per share.
A record date of December 15, 2014 had been set for the planned rights offering. Each holder of record on the close of business on the record date received one right for each share of common stock of TRER held on that date. Each five (5) rights are exercisable to acquire one Unit at the Subscription Price. In addition to being able to purchase their pro rata portion of the Units offered based on their ownership as of the record date for the rights offering, stockholders may oversubscribe for additional Units on an unlimited basis, subject to availability and proportional allocation of Units among holders exercising this over-subscription right.
TRER is conducting the rights offering to raise capital that will be used for the Round Top Project hydrometallurgy plan and to address its general corporate and administrative expenses.
Rights offering materials, including a prospectus and other items necessary to exercise the rights, have been mailed to stockholders of record on December 15, 2014. The prospectus contains important information about the rights offering and the terms of the Units, and stockholders are urged to read the prospectus carefully. A registration statement relating to these securities has been filed with the SEC and became effective on December 12, 2014. The offering will be made only by means of the prospectus which is a part of the effective registration statement.
