CALGARY, Alberta, Aug. 02, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Wilton Resources Inc. (the “Corporation”) (TSX-V:WIL) is pleased to announce that it intends to issue, by way of non-brokered private placement, 5,000,000 units (“Units”) of the Corporation at a purchase price of $0.80 per Unit (the “Offering Price”) for gross proceeds of a minimum of $4,000,000 (the “Offering”). Each Unit will be comprised of one common share in the capital of the Corporation (“Common Share”) and one Common Share purchase warrant (“Warrant”). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one Common Share for a period of 24 months from the date of issuance at an exercise price of $1.20 (the “Exercise Price”). The principal use of the proceeds of the Offering will be for general corporate purposes and future working capital.
The Corporation may pay finder’s fees to one or more eligible persons (“Finders”) consisting of a cash payment equal to 6% of gross proceeds raised from applicable subscriptions in the Offering and the issuance of finder’s warrants (“Finder’s Warrants”) equal to 6% of the number of Units issued pursuant to applicable subscriptions in the Offering. Each Finder’s Warrant will entitle the holder to acquire one additional Common Share at a price equal to the Exercise Price for a period of 24 months from the closing date of the Offering (the “Closing Date”). The Corporation expects the Closing Date to be in the second week of August, 2017.
Completion of the Offering is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV”). The TSXV has not approved the Offering Price or the Exercise Price and these remain subject to the change. The Units issued in connection with the Offering and the underlying Common Shares, Warrants and Common Shares underlying the Warrants will be subject to a statutory hold period of four months plus one day from the date of completion of the Offering, in accordance with applicable securities legislation.
