TORONTO, ONTARIO–(Marketwired – May 2, 2016) – Unigold Inc. (“Unigold” or the “Company“) (TSX VENTURE:UGD) is pleased to announce that it has appointed a syndicate of agents, including M Partners and Primary Capital Inc. (the “Agents“) to sell by way of a private placement up to 8,333,334 units of the Company (the “Units“) at a price of C$0.30 per Unit for gross proceeds of up to C$2,500,000 (the “Private Placement“). Each Unit will consist of one common share of the Company (a “Unit Share“) and one common share purchase warrant (a “Warrant“). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one common share of the Company (a “Warrant Share” and together with the Units, Unit Shares, and Warrants, the “Securities“) for a period of 24 months from the closing date of the Private Placement (subject to early expiry as described below) at a price of C$0.45 per Warrant Share. Unigold has also granted the Agents a “greenshoe” option, exercisable in whole or in part any time up to 48 hours before the closing of the Private Placement, to purchase an additional 20% of the Units sold pursuant to the Private Placement on the same terms and conditions as the Private Placement to cover over-allotments and for market stabilization purposes.

The proceeds from the Private Placement will be used to fund the Company’s continued exploration and development of its gold assets in the Dominion Republic, and for general working capital purposes.

Pursuant to the terms of the Warrants, the Company will have the right to accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants on notice to the Warrant holders if the closing price of the Company’s common shares on a stock exchange in Canada is higher than C$0.90 per common share for more than 20 consecutive trading days after four months and one day from the closing date of the Private Placement, in which case the Warrants will expire 30 days after the date on which such notice is given.

The Securities to be issued under the Private Placement will be offered pursuant to applicable exemptions from the prospectus requirements under applicable securities laws. Closing of the Private Placement is anticipated to occur on or before May 18, 2016 and is subject to receipt of all required regulatory approvals including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. The Securities issued under the Private Placement will be subject to a four month hold period which will expire four months and one day from the date of closing of the Private Placement.
