TORONTO, May 28, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Emerita Resources Corp. (TSX-V: EMO) (the “Company” or “Emerita”) announces that due to response from investors, it has increased its non-brokered private placement financing to $1,350,000 from its initially targeted $1,000,000 financing announced on May 14, 2020. The increased financing will be completed through the issuance of up to 27,000,000 units of Emerita (the “Units”) at a price of $0.05 per Unit (the “Offering”).
Each Unit shall be comprised of one common share of Emerita (each a “Common Share”) and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant shall entitle the holder to acquire one Common Share at a price of $0.15 for a period of 24 months following the closing date of the Offering, subject to an acceleration provision whereby in the event that at any time after the expiry of the statutory hold period, the Common Shares trade at $0.25 or higher on the TSX Venture Exchange for a period of 20 consecutive days, the Company shall have the right to accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants to the date that is 30 days after the Company issues a news release announcing that it has elected to exercise the acceleration right.
The proceeds of the Offering are expected to be used to finance exploration activities at the Company’s properties in Spain and for general corporate purposes.
The closing date of the Offering is expected to occur on or about June 15, 2020. All securities issued by Emerita will be subject to a hold period of four months and one day. Emerita has agreed to pay a finder’s fee of 8% of the gross proceeds, payable in cash, and finder’s warrants equal to 8% of the Units sold by qualified finders. Each finder’s unit shall be exercisable to acquire one common share of the Company at an exercise price of $0.10 per share, for a period of 24 months from the closing date of the Offering. Completion of the Offering is subject to customary closing conditions, including TSX Venture Exchange approval.
