VANCOUVER, BC / May 4, 2020 / IMC International Mining Corp. (CSE:IMCX) (OTC PINK:IMIMF) (FRA:3MX) (the “Company” or “IMC“) is pleased to announce a brokered private placement of up to 769,230 common shares of the Company issued on a flow-through basis (each, a “Flow-Through Share“) at a price of CAD$0.65 per Flow-Through Share (the “Issue Price“) for gross aggregate proceeds of up to CAD$500,000 (the “Offering“).
The Company is also pleased to announce that the Agents (as defined below) to the Company’s brokered private placement of units of the Company (each, a “Unit“) announced on April 27, 2020 (the “Unit Offering“) intend on exercising their option to increase the size of the Unit Offering.
Brokered Flow-Through Share Private Placement
The Company has entered into an agreement with Gravitas Securities Inc. whereby it will act as lead agent (the “Lead Agent“), on its own behalf, and if applicable, on behalf of a syndicate of agents (collectively with the Lead Agent, the “Agents“), pursuant to which the Agents will act on behalf of the Company to sell, on a best efforts basis, up to 769,230 Flow-Through Shares at a price of CAD$0.65 per Flow-Through Share for gross aggregate proceeds of up to CAD$500,000.
In connection with the Offering, the Company has granted the Agents an option (the “Agents’ Option“), exercisable in whole or in part at any time up to two days prior to the last closing date of the Offering, which will allow the Agents to increase the Offering by up to an additional 2,307,692 Flow-Through Shares, for additional gross aggregate proceeds of up to CAD$1,500,000, and otherwise on the same terms as the Offering.
An amount equal to the gross proceeds from the issuance of the Flow-Through Shares will be used for “Canadian exploration expenses” that will qualify as “flow-through mining expenditures”, as defined in the Income Tax Act (Canada). The Company will renounce to the subscribers of the Flow-Through Shares effective as of December 31, 2020 an amount of Canadian exploration expenses that will qualify as flow-through mining expenditures equal to the gross proceeds from the sale of Flow-Through Shares.
The Agents will also be entitled to a cash fee in an amount equal to 8% of the cash proceeds received from the sale of Flow-Through Shares, and to broker warrants (each, a “Broker Warrant“) in an amount equal to 8% of the number of Flow-Through Shares sold pursuant to the Offering. Each Broker Warrant will entitle the holder to acquire one common share of the Company (each, a “Common Share“) at any time for a period of two years from the date of issuance thereof at an exercise price of $0.70 per Common Share. The Broker Warrants are subject to accelerated expiry if the volume weighted average closing price of the Common Shares on the Canadian Securities Exchange is equal to or greater than CAD$0.88 for a period of ten consecutive trading days, in which case the Company will have the option, but not the obligation, to accelerate the expiry to 20 days from the date of notice.
The securities to be issued under the Offering will be subject to a hold period of four months and one day from the date of issue in accordance with applicable Canadian securities laws.
Exercise of Agents’ Option
The Company is also pleased to announce that the Agents, who also act as agents to the Company’s Unit Offering, intend on exercising their option to increase the Unit Offering. In connection with the Unit Offering, the Agents agreed to act on behalf of the Company to sell, on a best efforts basis, up to 2,083,333 Units at a price of CAD$0.48 per Unit for gross aggregate proceeds of up to CAD$1,000,000. In connection with the Unit Offering, the Company granted the Agents an option (the “Agents’ Unit Option“) exercisable in whole or in part at any time up to two days prior to the closing of the Unit Offering, which will allow the Agents to increase the Unit Offering by up to an additional 2,083,333 Units, for additional gross aggregate proceeds of CAD$1,000,000, and otherwise on the same terms as the Unit Offering. The Company understands that the Agents intend on exercising the Agents’ Unit Option.
