Erin Ventures Inc. (“Erin”) [TSXV: EV] is pleased to announce a proposed non-brokered private placement offering of convertible and unsecured debentures of the Corporation (the “Debenture“) for an aggregate principal amount of up to CAD$549,200 (the “Principal”).The placement is fully subscribed and the company anticipates final closing shortly. The Debenture will bear an interest at a fixed rate of 12% per annum, to be paid semi-annually in arrears (the “Interest Payments”), and will mature on June 1, 2018 (the “Maturity Date”).
The Interest Payments will be comprised of 50% cash and 50% common shares of Erin, subject to the right of the debenture holder to elect to have an Interest Payment satisfied entirely in common shares. The price of the common shares to be issued to satisfy each Interest Payment will be determined by the volume-weighted average trading price of the common shares of Erin for the 10 trading days preceding each Interest Payment due date, subject to a minimum price of $0.06 (the “Market Price”).
At the option of the Debenture holder, the Principal may be converted (in whole or in part) into units of Erin, once every twelve months. Each unit will be comprised of one common share and one common share purchase warrant (the “Unit”). The formula used to determine the number of Units to be issued upon conversion (the “Unit Price”) will be as follows, subject to a minimum conversion price of $0.10 after the first year:
- if the Market Price is $0.10 or less, then Unit Price will be Market Price less 20%, subject to a minimum price of $0.06;
- if the Market Price is between $0.11 and $0.50, then Unit Price will be Market Price less 10%; and
- if the Market Price is greater than $0.50, then Unit Price will be Market Price less 5%.
Each share purchase warrant issued as part of the Unit will be exercisable for a 1 year period into one common share at a 50% premium to the Unit Price, subject to a minimum exercise price of $0.10.
The Principal cannot be converted if, post conversion, the holder, together with any person, entity or company acting jointly or in concert with such holder, would in total own, or result in a control position or direction over that number of voting securities of Erin which is 20% or greater of the total issued and outstanding securities of Erin.
The Debentures will not be listed on any stock exchange and there will not be a market for the Debentures. In accordance with applicable securities laws, the common shares issued as the result of Interest Payments and/or conversion of Principal will be subject to a four month hold period and required regulatory approvals.
Erin intends to use the proceeds from this financing to fund further development of its wholly owned Piskanja boron project in Serbia, and for working capital. Finders fees may be paid in cash in connection with this offering, subject to the limits prescribed by the TSX Venture Exchange.
This proposed financing is subject to final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
