Strikepoint Gold Announces up to CAD $2.0 Million Private Placement
Vancouver, February 13, 2024 - StrikePoint Gold Inc. (TSXV: SKP) (OTCQB: STKXF) ("StrikePoint" or the "Company") is pleased to announce a non-brokered private placement (the "Private Placement") of up to 50,000,000 units (the "Units") of Company at a price of CAD $0.04 per Unit for gross proceeds of up to CAD $2.0 million. Each Unit shall be comprised of one common share (a "Common Share") and one half of one common share purchase warrant (the "Warrant"), with each whole Warrant is exercisable into one Common Share at an exercise price of CAD $0.07 per Common Share for a period of twenty-four (24) months from closing.
The Company will pay a finder's fee of up to 7% on the gross proceeds of the Private Placement from subscribers introduced by certain finders and will issue such number of finder's warrants ("Finder's Warrants") as is equal to up to 7% of the Units sold to subscribers introduced by certain finders. Each Finder's Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one (1) common share of the Company (a "Finder's Warrant Share") at a price of CAD $0.07 per Finder's Warrant Share for a period of twenty-four (24) months from the date of issuance.
The Company intends to use the proceeds from the Private Placement for drilling and other exploration activities and general working capital purposes.
The Private Placement remains subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval, and all securities offered pursuant to the Private Placement will be subject to a statutory hold period expiring four months and one day from the date of closing.
The Company anticipates that insiders will subscribe for Units. The issuance of Units to insiders is considered a related party transaction subject to Multilateral Instrument 61-101 -- Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions. The Company intends to rely on exemptions from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements provided under sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(a) of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 on the basis that the participation in the Private Placement by the insiders will not exceed 25 per cent of the fair market value of the Company's market capitalization. A material change report in connection with the Private Placement will be filed less than 21 days before the closing of the Private Placement. This shorter period is reasonable and necessary in the circumstances as the Company wishes to complete the Private Placement in a timely manner.
