Dynasty Announces Closing of Oversubscribed Private Placement
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 17, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dynasty Metals & Mining Inc. ("Dynasty" or the "Company") (TSX-V:DMM) (OTCQX:DMMIF) is pleased to announce that it has closed the second tranche (the "Second Tranche") of its previously announced non-brokered private placement of units (the "Private Placement").
For the Second Tranche, the Company issued 3,285,666 units (each, a "Unit") at a price of $0.30 per Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of $985,700. As the financing was oversubscribed, the Company issued, together with the first tranche that closed on June 30, 2017, a total of 9,220,672 units pursuant to the Private Placement for aggregate gross proceeds of $2,766,202.
Each Unit is comprised of one common share of the Company (each, a "Common Share") and one half of one Common Share purchase warrant (each whole Common Share purchase warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one Common Share at a price of $0.45 for a period of two (2) years following the date of issuance, subject to acceleration in the event that the closing price of the Common Shares is $0.60 or higher over a period of ten (10) consecutive trading days. The securities issued pursuant to the Second Tranche are subject to a four month hold period that expires on November 15, 2017.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the Private Placement for working capital and general corporate purposes.
In connection with the Second Tranche, the Company paid cash finders’ fees totaling $72,432 to certain individuals and Canaccord Genuity Corp.
Mr. Gregg Sedun, Lead Director of the Company, acquired 91,666 Units pursuant to the Second Tranche.
Mr. Javier Reyes, a Director of the Company, acquired 68,334 Units pursuant to the Second Tranche.
The transaction constituted a related party transaction within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Securityholders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101") as insiders of the Company subscribed for securities of the Company for an aggregate of $48,000. The Company is relying on the exemptions from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 contained in sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101, as the fair market value of the participation in the Second Tranche by insiders does not exceed 25% of the market capitalization of the Company, as determined in accordance with MI 61-101. The Company did not file a material change report in respect of the related party transaction at least 21 days before the closing of the Second Tranche, as the details of the participation by related parties of the Company were not settled until shortly prior to the closing of the Second Tranche.
The Private Placement has been conditionally approved by the TSX Venture Exchange but remains subject to final exchange approval.
