11.07.2024  |  Newsfile

Extends and Amends Advisory Engagement

Vancouver, July 11, 2024 - Velocity Minerals Ltd. (TSXV: VLC) ("Velocity" or the "Company") announces that it has published its fourth annual ESG Report (the "Report"), which is available for download on the Velocity website. In the Report, the Company outlines Velocity's continued focus on environmental stewardship, local stakeholders and leadership in the community.

The Company also provides clarification on its advisory engagement with Leede Jones Gable Inc. (the "Advisor") and the recent amendment to the agreement (previous news releases dated May 5, 2023 and June 13, 2024). The Advisor will continue to work with Velocity's management and board of directors to evaluate a range of strategic alternatives that may be available to the Company to maximize value for all shareholders. There can be no assurance that ongoing assessment of strategic alternatives will result in any specific strategic plan or financial transaction and no timetable has been set for its completion. The Company does not plan to provide updates unless there are material developments to report.

Velocity and the Advisor entered into a financial advisory agreement ("Advisory Agreement") in May 2023 pursuant to which the Advisor provided certain financial and general business advisory services on an as-needed basis over a 12-month period. In consideration for providing these services, the Advisor received a retainer of $10,000 and 500,000 common shares in the capital of the Company which were issued to the Advisor in quarterly instalments of 125,000 shares per quarter. The Advisory Agreement also provided that Velocity would pay the Advisor a commission of 7% cash and 7% share purchase warrants on any financing raised by or through the Advisor, as well as success fee payable in cash or, at the Advisor's option, a number of shares equal to 2% of: (i) the number of shares issued by Velocity in connection with a strategic transaction or (ii) the value of the cash consideration paid by the Company under the strategic transaction. The Advisor was entitled to an additional fee in the event it issued, amended or updated a fairness opinion in connection with a strategic transaction or provided additional advisory services, if requested by the Company.

The parties have now entered into an amendment to the Advisory Agreement ("Amending Agreement") pursuant to which: (i) the term of the Advisory Agreement is extended by 6 months, (ii) Velocity will issue an additional 100,000 shares to the Advisor, and (iii) the success fee is reduced to 0.5% if the Company must pay another finder fee of 4% or more in respect of the same strategic transaction. The Amending Agreement is subject to TSX Venture Exchange acceptance.
