(TSX: EOX): (“Euromax” or the “Company“), is pleased to announce that the Company has agreed to issue a non-interest bearing, unsecured, convertible promissory note in the principal amount of USD$1,000,000 (“Convertible Promissory Note“) to one of its current shareholders, Galena Resource Equities Limited (“Galena“), an entity controlled and managed by Galena Asset Management S.A., which is an affiliate of Trafigura Pte Ltd. (the “Private Placement“). A portion of the proceeds from the Private Placement will be used to provide the Company with short term working capital. The Convertible Promissory Note supersedes and replaces the existing Promissory Note issued to Galena in amount of US$500,000 dated February 23, 2022 in its entirety and will result in an additional USD$500,000 of capital for the Company.
The Convertible Promissory Note may be converted in whole or in part into fully paid and non-assessable common shares (“Common Shares“) in the capital of the Company on the basis of one (1) Common Share for each Cdn$0.0525 of principal amount of the Convertible Promissory Note converted, resulting in the issuance of up to 24,761,904 Common Shares upon the conversion of the Convertible Promissory Note in accordance with its terms. For the purposes of conversion, the conversion price will be converted to USD based on an exchange rate of USD$1.00 to Cdn$1.30.
The Company has obtained conditional approval of the Toronto Stock Exchange (“TSX“) of the Private Placement, subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions.
The Company is relying on the fair market value exemption found at Section 5.7(a) of the Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101“) to forego the requirement to obtain minority shareholder approval in connection with the Private Placement, and is relying on the fair market value exemption found at Section 5.5 of MI 61-101 to forego the requirement to obtain a formal valuation in connection with the Private Placement.
The Private Placement remains subject to the final approval of the TSX.
