TORONTO, Aug. 02, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — JOURDAN RESOURCES INC. (TSXV: JOR; FRA:2JR1) (“Jourdan” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce that it has closed its non-brokered private placement financing of common shares of the Company issued on a flow-through basis (each, a “Flow-Through Share”) and units (each, a “Unit”) for gross proceeds of $2,161,000 (collectively, the “Offering”). For more information about the Offering, please see the Company’s press releases dated June 29, 2022 and July 21, 2022, which are available under the Company’s profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
Pursuant to the Offering, Jourdan issued (i) 9,512,500 Units at a price of $0.08 per Unit and (ii) 14,000,000 Flow-Through Shares at a price of $0.10 per Flow-Through Share. Each Unit consists of one common share of the Company and one common share purchase warrant (each, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant entitles the holder to acquire one additional common share of the Company at an exercise price of $0.10 until July 29, 2024.
All securities issued in connection with the Offering are subject to a statutory hold period expiring on November 30, 2022. Completion of the Offering is subject to receipt of final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV”).
In connection with the Offering, Jourdan paid finder’s fees of $81,000 in cash and issued 810,000 non-transferable finder’s warrants (“Finder’s Warrants”) to Roche Securities Ltd. in accordance with TSXV policies. Each Finder’s Warrant entitles the holder thereof to acquire one common share of the Company at a price of $0.10 at any time prior to July 29, 2024. The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the issuance of the Units and the Flow-Through Shares for working capital and general corporate purposes and to fund exploration expenditures on its Vallee, Preissac-La Corne, and Baillargé lithium mining properties.
Insiders of the Company subscribed for Units and Flow-Through Shares pursuant to the Offering (the “Insider Participation”). The Insider Participation is considered to be a “related party transaction” as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”). The Insider Participation is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101. The Company did not file a material change report more than 21 days before closing the Offering as the details of the abovementioned Insider Participation were not settled until shortly prior to closing, and the Company wished to close the Offering on an expedited basis.
