Peruvian Precious Metals Corp. Announces Closing of First Tranche of Non-Brokered Private Placement of Units
NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES
Vancouver, British Columbia CANADA, November 07, 2013 /FSC/ – Peruvian Precious Metals Corp (PPX – TSX Venture, PPX – BVL),(the “Company”), announces that it has closed the first tranche of its non-brokered private placement of units (the “Units”) under the terms previously disclosed on November 6, 2013. 750,000 Units were issued to subscribers under the first tranche.
Each Unit consists of one common share of the Company (a “Common Share”) and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant entitles the holder, on exercise thereof, to purchase one additional Common Share at a price of $0.16 until November 7, 2015, provided that if the daily volume weighted average price for twenty (20) consecutive days of trading of the Company’s shares on the TSX Venture Exchange (or such other stock exchange on which shares of the Company are listed) exceeds $0.45 per share, the expiry date of the Warrants may be accelerated to the day which is thirty (30) calendar days after notice of acceleration has been sent by the Company to Warrant holders.
Securities issued under the private placement will be subject to a four-month hold expiring on March 8, 2014, in accordance with applicable Canadian securities laws. The Company intends to use the proceeds from the private placement for general working capital purposes.
The private placement is for up to 2,000,000 Units for aggregate gross proceeds of up to $200,000. The completion of subsequent tranches of the private placement will be subject to certain conditions, including final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
Certain insiders of the Company acquired securities under the private placement. Such participation is considered to be a “related party transaction” as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101″). The directors determined that the transaction is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as the Company is listed on the TSX Venture Exchange and neither the fair market value of any securities issued to or the consideration paid by such insiders exceeded 25% of the Company’s market capitalization. The Company did not file a material change report more than 21 days before the expected closing of the private placement as the details of the private placement and the participation therein by related parties of the Company were not settled until shortly prior to closing and the Company wished to close the private placement on an expedited basis for sound business reasons and in a timeframe consistent with usual market practices for transactions of this nature.
This news release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy any of the securities in the United States. The securities have not been and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “U.S. Securities Act”) or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold within the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, U.S. Persons unless registered under the U.S. Securities Act and applicable state securities laws, unless an exemption from such registration is available.
On behalf of the Board of Directors
