MONTREAL, QUEBEC–(Marketwired – April 21, 2017) – Lamêlee Iron Ore Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:LIR) (“Lamêlee” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has closed, subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval, its oversubscribed non-brokered private placement previously announced in its press releases dated April 10, 2017. The Company issued an aggregate of 1,052,996 units (each a”Unit“) at a price of $0.15 per Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of $157,950 (the “Offering“).
The net proceeds from the Offering will be used for working capital, accounts payable and debts.
Each Unit is comprised of one (1) common share in the capital of the Company (a “Share“) and one (1) Share purchase warrant (a “Warrant“). Each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one (1) Share at an exercise price of $0.15 per share until April 21, 2020 (the “Warrant Expiry Date“).
In connection with the Offering, the Company paid to arm’s length finders an aggregate amount of $951.75.
Stéphane Leblanc, President and CEO and a Director of the Company, directly, and indirectly through 9248-7792 Québec Inc., and Hubert Vallée, a Director of the Company, indirectly through 9288-1846 Québec Inc., at the time that the Offering was completed, participated in the Offering as to respectively an aggregate of 558,000 Units and 35,000 Units for total proceeds of $88,950. Accordingly, the Offering constituted to that extent a “related party transaction” under MI 61-101. The transaction is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements under MI 61-101 as neither the fair market value of any securities issued to or the consideration paid by such persons exceeds 25% of the Company’s market capitalization. The Company did not file a material change report more than 21 days before the expected closing of the Offering as the details of the Offering and the participation therein by related parties of the Company were not settled until shortly prior to closing and the Company wished to close on an expedited basis for sound business reasons.
All securities issued pursuant to the Offering are subject to a four-month hold period expiring on August 22, 2017.
Early Warning Pursuant to National Instrument 62-103
Upon completion of the Offering, Stéphane Leblanc, directly, and indirectly through 9248-7792 Québec Inc. and Patricia Lafontaine, of Trois-Rivières, Québec, owns 1,216,750 Share and 558,000 Warrants, representing 28.90% on an undiluted basis of the total issued Shares requiring disclosure pursuant to the early warning requirements of applicable securities laws.
The deemed issue price of all the Shares issued pursuant to the Offering was $0.15. Mr. Leblanc may, directly or indirectly, depending on market and other conditions, acquire beneficial ownership of, or control or direction over, additional Shares, through market transactions, private agreements or otherwise, in accordance with applicable securities legislation. The securities were issued pursuant to the exemption contained in Section 2.3 of National Instrument 45-106.
