Fengro Industries Corp. Announces Closing of $410,000 Financing
The Company must complete a minimum 10:1 consolidation of its common shares as part of the TSXV approval of the Placement, prior to the TSXV lifting the current trading halt. The completion of the consolidation will occur irrespective of the completion of the previously announced (November 5, 2019) potential RTO with Elemental Royalties Limited (the"Transaction").
No finders fees have been paid in connection with the Placement.
The majority of the proceeds of the Placement will be used to repay existing Company trade creditors (including legal, accounting, marketing, regulatory, various general accrued working capital and accrued employee costs). The Placement will significantly reduce its working capital deficit.
As a result of the closing, there will be two new control persons created - John Robins and James Paterson - each holding 26.505% of the issued and outstanding common shares.
Arms-length shareholder written approval of the new control persons has been received - the creation of new control persons requires a minimum of 50% and one common share of the currently issued and outstanding shares.
Tembo Capital is subscribing for $60,000 of the Placement, and as an existing approved Control Person will see its ownership reduced to 36.076%. Tembo's participation is permitted under the Policy 5.9, MI 61-101 exemption with Tembo participating for less than 25% of the Company's market capitalisation.
Update on Sale of Brazilian Assets
The previously announced disposition of the Company's Brazilian assets to Geofoscal Comercio, Industria, Representacoes e Transporte de Produtos Agropecuarios Ltda. was approved at the Company's shareholders meeting on October 18, 2019. The Company anticipates that the transaction will close in or about January 22, 2020.
