Green Swan Announces Million Dollar Brokered Financing
March 2, 2017 (Source) — Green Swan Capital Corp. (TSXV: GSW) (the “Company“) announces it has entered into an agreement with Industrial Alliance Securities Inc. (the “Agent“) for a brokered private placement financing for gross proceeds of up to one million dollars (the “Offering“).
The Offering will consist of:
(a) up to $350,000 in units (the “Units“), with each Unit consisting of one common share and one common share purchase warrant. Each Unit shall be priced at $0.10 (ten cents) and each common share purchase warrant shall be exercisable for an 18-month period at $0.15 (fifteen cents); and
(b) up to $650,000 in common shares issued on a flow-through basis (the “Flow-Through Shares“), which shall consist of approximately $150,000 in Flow-Through shares issued to residents of Quebec and approximately $500,000 in Flow-Through Shares issued to Canadian residents outside Quebec.
In addition, the Company has granted the Agent an option to cause the Company to issue up to an additional $150,000 in Units and/or Flow-Through Shares in such combinations as mutually agreed by the Agent and the Company.
Proceeds from the sale of the Units will be used for community engagement, exploration, data compilation, drilling, and for general purposes and administration costs. Proceeds from the sale of the Flow-Through Shares will be used for “Canadian Exploration Expenses” which qualify as “Flow-Through Mining Expenditures” for the purposes of the Income Tax Act (Canada) and the Corporation will renounce such expenses with an effective date no later than December 31, 2017, and in more detail, the proceeds from the Flow-Through Shares to be issued to Quebec residents will be used to explore Green Swan’s Chilton Cobalt property, in Quebec.

A commission will be payable to the Agent on closing of cash equal to 7% of the gross proceeds of the Offering, broker warrants equal to 10% of the aggregate number of Units sold pursuant to the Offering (the “Agent’s Unit Warrants“) and broker warrants equal to 10% of the aggregate number of Flow-Through Shares sold pursuant to the Offering (the “Agent’s FT Warrants“). Each Agent’s Unit Warrant will entitle the Agent to purchase one Unit at a price of $0.10 (ten cents) and each Agent’s FT Warrant will entitle the Agent to purchase one common share of the Company at a price of $0.12 (twelve cents) at any time prior to the date that is 18 months from the Closing Date. The Agent may syndicate all or part of the Offering.
The Offering will take place by way of a private placement to qualified investors in those jurisdictions where the Offering can lawfully be made. The securities to be issued under the Offering will be subject to a regulatory four month and one day hold period, from the closing. Closing is anticipated to occur on or before Wednesday, March 29, 2017, and is subject to stock exchange approval.
“Green Swan was one of the first movers in the space, and is being rewarded for its foresight,” said Peter M. Clausi, Green Swan’s CEO. “The proceeds from this financing will accelerate shareholder value in the field, as cobalt continues its run of setting 5-year highs on the LME.”
Green Swan continues to build its impressive portfolio of assets in mining-friendly jurisdictions, including its main Sudbury asset, Dryden Cobalt, Otto Lake, Chilton Cobalt, Geneva Lake, Ryliejack and Mikayla.
