Highway 50 Increases Private Placement and Amends Terms
Vancouver, British Columbia
Highway 50 Gold Corp. (TSX.V -- HWY) February 6, 2014
Highway 50 Gold Corp. ("Highway 50" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company has increased the size of its previously announced non-brokered private placement from gross proceeds of $900,000 to up to $2,600,000 (the "Offering") through the sale of 7,027,025 units (each a "Unit") at a revised purchase price of $0.37 per Unit. Each Unit will now consist of one common share of the Company and one non-transferable common share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one additional common share of the Company (a "Warrant Share") at an exercise price of $0.60 per Warrant Share for a reduced exercise period of 12 months following the closing of the Offering (the "Closing Date").
In connection with the Offering, the Company will pay to arm's length finders (the "Finders") a finder's fee equal to 7% of the gross proceeds of the Offering, payable in cash or Units at the election of the Finders. In addition, the Finders will receive finder's options (each, a "Finder's Option") exercisable for a period of 12 months following the Closing Date to acquire such number of common shares of the Company (each, a "Finder's Share") as is equal to 7% of the number of Units sold under the Offering, at a purchase price of $0.45 per Finder's Share.
On December 20, 2013, the Company also announced that it had reached an agreement with Regulus Resources Inc. ("Regulus"), whereby the Company will grant to Regulus an option to earn a 50% interest in the Company's Golden Brew property (the "Option"). Regulus had also agreed to purchase 2,000,000 units in the Company for gross proceeds of $900,000 on the terms previously announced. As a result of the revised terms of the Offering, the aggregate purchase price payable by Regulus for the 2,000,000 Units will reduce from $900,000 to gross proceeds of $740,000 issuable on the terms set out above, and Regulus will no longer receive a pre-emptive right in future financings conducted by the Company. The Company and Regulus are proceeding to finalise the terms of the formal option agreement.
The Offering and the grant of the Option is subject to the acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange. All securities issued in connection with the Offering will be subject to a hold period expiring four months and one day following the Closing Date.
The net proceeds from the Offering will be primarily used for further development of the Company's Porter Canyon property and for general working capital purposes.
