Serengeti Closes Early Warrant Exercise Incentive Program: Raises Aggregate $375,000
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Serengeti Resources Inc. (TSX-V:SIR) ("Serengeti" or "the Company") announces that further to its press release dated May 22, 2018, Serengeti has received gross proceeds of $330,000 from the exercise of 2,200,000 share purchase warrants at $0.15 per share pursuant to the Early Warrant Exercise Incentive Program (the “Incentive Program”).
As an incentive for the early exercise of their share purchase warrants, the warrant holders received an additional 2,200,000 new share purchase warrants (the "Incentive Warrant"). Each Incentive Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional common share of the Company on or before December 13, 2019, at a price of CAN$0.22 per share. The Incentive Warrants are subject to a four month hold period from the date of issuance, expiring October 14, 2018.
The balance of the 1,106,000 warrants not exercised under this Incentive Program will remain outstanding and continue to be exercisable for common shares of the Company on their current terms, with an expiry of August 5, 2018.
The Company also received a further $45,000 from the exercise of 900,000 share purchase warrants by an insider of the Company at a price of $0.05 per share. These warrants were not part of the Incentive Program and therefore the holder will not be receiving any Incentive Warrants.
The Company paid a 5% cash finders’ fee in respect of certain exercises under the Incentive Program in accordance with policies of the TSX Venture Exchange for an aggregate cost of $4,312.
The net proceeds from the Incentive Program will be used for exploration on the Atty property located adjacent to Centerra Gold’s Kemess Underground development and Kemess East advanced exploration projects, as well as for exploration on other selected properties and for general working capital purposes.
