Major Precious Metals Announces Investment of Up to $5.4 Million
VANCOUVER, Oct. 28, 2021 - Major Precious Metals Corp. ("Major Precious Metals" or the "Company") (NEO:SIZE | OTC:SIZYF | FRANKFURT:3EZ), a Canadian exploration and mining company that has recently completed its Phase 1 diamond drilling program on its Skaergaard Project in eastern Greenland, is pleased to announce that it has entered into a definitive convertible security funding agreement ("Agreement") with L1 Capital Global Opportunities Master Fund ("Investor"), a Cayman based investment fund, part of the L1 Capital Group. The funding will come in the form of up to CAD $6 million face-value ("Face Value") convertible debentures (the "Convertible Debentures") . The Company will receive net proceeds of up to CAD $5.4 million from the Convertible Debenture issuance, less applicable closing costs.
Tony Williams, Chairman and CEO of Major Precious Metals stated, "The net proceeds from this innovative financing with L1 Capital gives further support to our ongoing evaluation of the resource potential at the Skaergaard Palladium and Gold Project.
Previous news releases have provided information about the next stages required to confirm and upgrade existing palladium and gold resources, and to evaluate potential for other critical metals to add to overall "Rock Value" as well as investigating possible initial open pit mining.
To update on progress, we have completed demobilisation from site and are now coordinating the secure transportation (including meeting all international COVID protocols) of over 11,000 core and channel samples gathered from the summer program to the ALS Global Laboratory in Ireland for assay testing.
The results from this work will determine the next steps needed to demonstrate the full potential for economic extraction of the resources at Skaergaard and we will report on further progress pending exact confirmation on timing from the Laboratory."
Under the terms of the Agreement, an initial CAD $3.15 million has been funded pursuant to the issuance of an initial Convertible Debenture with a Face Value of CAD $3.5 million ("First Tranche"). The Agreement also contemplates the issuance of a second Convertible Debenture, subject to conditions set forth in the Agreement, for gross proceeds to the Company of up to CAD $2.25 million with a Face Value of CAD $2.5 million ("Second Tranche"), to be completed on the date that is one hundred and eighty (180) days after the closing of the First Tranche. There can be no assurances that the Second Tranche will be completed as indicated, or at all.
Each Convertible Debenture issuable under the Agreement will have an 18-month term from the date of issuance. The Face Value of each Convertible Debenture is to be paid in 14 equal monthly instalments starting after the four-month anniversary of the date of issuance of each Convertible Debenture. The repayment of the Face Value may be paid in cash or common shares of the Company ("Shares") at the discretion of the Company (subject to satisfaction of certain conditions) at a price per Share equal to 90% of the arithmetic average volume weighted average prices ("VWAP") of the Shares for the five (5) trading days chosen by the Investor during the 20-day trading day period prior to the date that is the applicable monthly instalment date. The Investor will be entitled to convert the Convertible Debentures, in whole or in part, into Shares over the term of the applicable Convertible Debenture at a conversion price equal to $0.40, representing a 30% premium to the closing VWAP on the day prior to signing the Agreement.
In addition, in respect to the First Tranche, the Company has agreed to issue 6,034,482 common share purchase warrants ("Warrants") exercisable for Shares for a period of 60 months at an exercise price of $0.325. Under the terms of the Agreement, the Company has also agreed to issue to the Investor such number of Warrants as is equal to 50% of the quotient of the Face Value of the Convertible Debenture issued under the Second Tranche divided by the 5-day closing VWAP of the Shares prior to closing of the Second Tranche, exercisable for a period of 60 months at a price per Share equal to a 50% premium to the 5-day VWAP of the Shares prior to the closing of the Second Tranche.
The Company has agreed to pay the Investor a 3% financing fee of the Face Value of each Convertible Debenture under the First Tranche and Second Tranche, respectively, and due upon closing of each such tranche, payable in Shares ("Fee Shares"). In connection with the closing of the First Tranche, the Company has issued to the Investor an aggregate of 362,069 Fee Shares. The number of Fee Shares issuable for the financing fee applicable to the Second Tranche shall be equal to: (a) 3% of the Face Value of the Second Tranche Convertible Debenture divided by (b) a 10% discount to the 5-day closing VWAP of the Shares prior to the closing of the Second Tranche. In the event that the 5-day closing VWAP of the Shares prior to each tranche closing (each a "Closing VWAP") is less than the 5-day closing VWAP of the Shares on the four-month anniversary of each closing ("Supplemental Closing VWAP"), a supplemental fee is due in an amount equal to (a) the applicable Closing VWAP less the applicable Supplemental Closing WVAP multiplied by (b) the number of applicable Fee Shares.
The securities issuable under the Agreement will be subject to a hold period pursuant to Canadian securities laws, expiring four months and a day after the issuance of the applicable security. The transactions contemplated under the Agreement have been conditionally accepted by the Neo Exchange, subject to the filing of the documents required by section 7.04(8) of the Neo Exchange Listing Manual.
