Calgary, Alberta--(Newsfile Corp. - February 13, 2019) - Wilton Resources Inc. (TSXV: WIL) ("Wilton" or the "Corporation") is pleased to announce that it closed its previously announced non-brokered private placement offering (the "Offering") of units ("Units") of the Corporation at a purchase price of $0.56 per Unit for gross proceeds of $468,000. Each Unit consists of one common share in the capital of the Corporation ("Common Share") and one whole Common Share purchase warrant of the Corporation ("Warrant"). Each whole Warrant is exercisable into one Common Share at a price of $0.70 per Common Share for a period of 24 months from the date of issuance.
No commission, finder's fee or similar payment (whether in the form of cash, securities or an interest in assets) were paid by the Corporation in connection with the Offering.
The gross proceeds from the Offering will be used by Wilton for general corporate purposes and future working capital. All securities issued in connection with the Offering are subject to a statutory four month hold period from the date of issue.
In connection with the closing of the Offering, 300,000 Units were issued to an Insider of the Corporation (as such term is defined under the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange). The participation of the Insider in the Offering constitutes a "related party transaction" within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). The Corporation is relying upon exemptions from the formal valuation and minority approval requirements of MI 61-101 based on a determination that the fair market value of the Offering, insofar as it involves the related parties, does not exceed 25% of the market capitalization of the Corporation. The Corporation was not in a position to file a material change report more than 21 days in advance of the closing of the Offering, as the participation of the related parties was not confirmed at that time.
The Offering was approved by the Corporation's board of directors by means of a unanimous resolution. In connection with the closing of the Offering, accounts managed by Rosseau Asset Management Ltd. subscribed for a total of 300,000 Units. The transaction resulted in the percentage of the total outstanding Common Shares of the Corporation controlled by Rosseau Asset Management Ltd. increasing by less than 1%.
