July 17, 2014 (Source: Marketwired) — NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWS WIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE U.S.
Tuscany Energy Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:TUS) is pleased to announce the closing of its recently announced financing for aggregate gross proceeds of $3.0 million.
The Offering was led by Acumen Capital Finance Partners Limited and included Industrial Alliances Securities Inc. and Richardson GMP Limited. An aggregate of 4,286,000 Units of the Corporation and 3,214,000 common shares of the Corporation issued on a “flow-through basis” pursuant to the Income Tax Act (Canada) in respect of Canadian development expenses were issued at a price of $0.40 per Unit and per flow through share, as applicable. Each Unit is comprised of one common share and one-half of one common share purchase Warrant of the Corporation, with each whole Warrant entitling the holder thereof to acquire one Common Share at a price of $0.50 for a period of 12 months from the date hereof, provided that if at any time prior to the expiry of the Warrants the 20 day weighted average trading price of the Common Shares on the TSX Venture Exchange is $0.70 or greater, the Warrants will expire 30 days from the date Tuscany gives notice of same to the warrant agent under the indenture governing the Warrants.
The net proceeds of the Offering will be used to temporarily reduce bank indebtedness thereby freeing up additional borrowing capacity which is expected to be used to partially fund the Corporation’s ongoing capital expenditure program, with proceeds from the issuance of the CDE FT Shares used to incur eligible Canadian development expenditures that will be renounced to subscribers effective on or before December 31, 2014.
This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of any offer to buy the Units or CDE FT Shares in the United States. The Common Shares and Warrants comprising the Units and the CDE FT Shares have not been and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933 and may not be offered or sold in the United States.
Tuscany is a heavy oil development and production company with reserves, land holdings and production in Canada. The Corporation’s principal focus is the exploitation of oil resources in Alberta and Saskatchewan through horizontal drilling. The majority of the Corporation’s revenue is generated from oil sales in Saskatchewan.
