VAL-D’OR, QC, Feb. 17, 2022 /CNW/ – ( ) (OTCQX: BONXF) (FSE: 9BR2) (“Bonterra” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement pursuant to which Cormark Securities Inc., as lead agent, on behalf of a syndicate of agents (collectively, the “Agents“), in connection with a “best efforts” private placement of: (i) 7,290,000 common shares of the Company that qualify as “flow-through shares” (within the meaning of subsection 66(15) of the Income Tax Act (Canada) and section 359.1 of the Taxation Act (Québec)) (the “FT Shares“) at a price of $2.06 per FT Share for gross proceeds of $15,017,400; and (ii) 8,270,000 common shares of the Company (the “HD Shares“) at a price of $1.21 per HD Share (the “HD Issue Price“) for gross proceeds of $10,006,700, for aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of approximately $25 million (collectively, the “Offering“).
The Agents will have the option exercisable, in whole or in part at any time up to 48 hours prior to the closing of the Offering, to offer for sale up to an additional 2,334,000 common shares of the Company which option will be exercisable for FT Shares at the FT Issue Price, HD Shares at the HD Issue Price, or some combination thereof.
The net proceeds from the issue of the HD Shares will be used for working capital and general corporate purposes. The Company will use an amount equal to the gross proceeds received by the Company from the sale of the FT Shares, pursuant to the provisions in the Income Tax Act (Canada), to incur eligible “Canadian exploration expenses” that qualify as “flow-through mining expenditures” as both terms are defined in the Income Tax Act (Canada) (the “Qualifying Expenditures“) related to the Company’s projects in Québec, on or before December 31, 2023, and to renounce all the Qualifying Expenditures in favour of the subscribers of the FT Shares effective December 31, 2022. In addition, with respect to Québec resident subscribers who are eligible individuals under the Taxation Act (Québec), the Canadian exploration expenses will also qualify for inclusion in the “exploration base relating to certain Québec exploration expenses” within the meaning of section 726.4.10 of the Taxation Act (Québec) and for inclusion in the “exploration base relating to certain Québec surface mining expenses or oil and gas exploration expenses” within the meaning of section 7184.108.40.206 of the Taxation Act (Québec). If the Qualifying Expenditures are reduced by the Canada Revenue Agency, the Company will indemnify each FT Share subscriber for any additional taxes payable by such subscriber as a result of the Company’s failure to renounce the Qualifying Expenditures as agreed.
The Offering is expected to close on or about March 10, 2022, or such other date as the Company and the Agents may agree and is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary regulatory and other approvals including the acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange.
