QUEBEC CITY, QUEBEC–(Marketwired – April 29, 2016) – Komet Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:KMT) (“Komet” or the “Corporation”) is pleased to announce that it has closed the first tranche of a non-brokered private placement with accredited investors as well as with directors of Komet (the “Insiders”) by issuing 1,820,846 units (the “Units”) at a price of $0.33 per Unit, for total gross proceeds to Komet of $600,879.13. Each Unit consists of one common share (a “Common Share”) and one common share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”). Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional Common Share of the Corporation at a price of $0.45 for 12 months from the closing date of the private placement (the “Closing Date”).
Securities issued under the private placement will be subject to a four month hold period from the Closing Date.
Komet will use the private placement proceeds to fund the acquisition of important production equipment and exploration work on its properties.
The Insiders’ participation is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements provided under Regulation 61-101 respecting Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“Regulation 61-101”) in accordance with sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of Regulation 61-101. The exemption is based on the fact that neither the fair market value of the private placement, nor the consideration paid by such Insiders exceeds 25% of the market capitalization of the Corporation. The Corporation did not file a material change report at least 21 days prior to the completion of the private placement since the Insiders’ participation was not determined at that moment.
The private placement was carried out pursuant to prospectus exemptions of applicable securities laws and is subject to final acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange.
As a result of the private placement, 49,226,990 common shares of Komet are issued and outstanding.
The Corporation would also like to announce that a total of 3,607,677 common share purchase warrants of the Corporation (the “April 2014 Warrants”) have been exercised prior to their expiry date of April 28, 2016, for gross proceeds to Komet of $1,100,431. The April 2014 Warrants were issued in connection with the private placement of the Corporation on April 29, 2014 and were exercisable at $0.305 per share. The Corporation would like to thank warrants holders for their continuing confidence in the Corporation.
