Vancouver, BC, April 22, 2022 – Scottie Resources Corp. (TSX.V: SCOT) (“Scottie” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced brokered private placement financing pursuant to an agency agreement dated April 22, 2022 (the “Agency Agreement”) with Cormark Securities Inc. (“Cormark”) and Research Capital Corporation (“RCC”, together with Cormark, the “Agents”), raising aggregate gross proceeds of C$5,008,000 (the “Offering”). Cormark acted as lead agent pursuant to the terms of the Offering, under which the Company issued 10,000,000 flow-through common shares of the Company (the “Premium FT Shares”) at a price of C$0.30 per Premium FT Share; 4,000,000 flow-through common shares of the Company (the “Traditional FT Shares”, together with the Premium FT Shares, the “FT Shares”) at a price of C$0.25 per Traditional FT Share; and 4,800,000 non-flow-through common shares of the Company (the “HD Shares”) at a price of C$0.21 per HD Share.
Pursuant to the Agency Agreement, the Agents received a cash commission of $300,480, representing 6.0% of the gross proceeds raised under the Offering, and were issued 1,128,000 broker warrants (“Broker Warrants”), representing 6.0% of the number of FT Shares and HD Shares issued under the Offering. Each Broker Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one common share (a “Broker Warrant Share”) of the Company at a price of C$0.30 per Broker Warrant Share for a period of 24 months from the date hereof.
The gross proceeds received by the Company from the sale of the FT Shares will be used to incur “Canadian exploration expenses” that are “flow-through mining expenditures” (as such terms are defined in the Income Tax Act (Canada)) and “BC flow-through mining expenditures” (as defined in the Income Tax Act (British Columbia)) on the Company’s properties in British Columbia (the “Qualifying Expenditures”). The Qualifying Expenditures will be renounced to the subscribers with an effective date no later than December 31, 2022.
All FT Shares, HD Shares, Broker Warrants and Broker Warrant Shares issued and issuable under the Offering are subject to a statutory hold period and may not be traded until August 23, 2022, except as permitted by applicable securities legislation. The Offering is subject to the final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
