VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / May 6, 2022 /( ) (the “Company” or “Viva“) is pleased to announce the closing of its previously announced non-brokered private placement (the “Offering“) of 35,966,667 common shares of the Company (“Common Shares“) at a price of CDN$0.12 per share for gross proceeds of CDN$4,316,000. All securities issued and issuable in connection with the Offering will be subject to a 4-month plus one day hold period. The Offering has received final approval from the TSX Venture.
The net proceeds of the Offering will be used principally towards advancing the Tonopah Gold Project to pre-feasibility/feasibility study, including drilling, technical and environmental studies, and secondarily for general working capital purposes.
The Company will pay aggregate finders fees of approximately $134,760 in connection with subscriptions introduced to the offering by Dundee Goodman Merchant Partners.
Dundee Resources Limited (“Dundee“) participated in the Offering as the lead subscriber and subscribed for 18,300,000 shares, which represents approximately 19.98% of the outstanding post-Offering Common Shares. As a result, Dundee is an insider of the Company.
As a component of the Offering, 5,000,000 Common Shares were issued to RAB Capital Holdings Limited (“RAB Capital“), a control person of Viva Gold, for total consideration of $600,000. This portion of the Offering constituted a “related party transaction” under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101“), which has been adopted by the TSX Venture Exchange in its Policy 5.9. Such participation is exempt fromthe formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as neither the fair market value of the Units acquired by the insiders, nor the consideration for the shares paid by such insiders, exceed 25% of the Company’s market capitalization. RAB Capital and affiliates beneficially own and control, directly and indirectly, 16,100,000 Common Shares and 8,600,000 share purchase warrants (representing approximately 17.6% of the outstanding Common Shares on a non-diluted basis and approximately 24.6% on a partially-diluted basis).
