Montréal, Québec (FSCwire) – Argex Titanium Inc. (TSX: RGX) (“Argex”) is pleased to announce that it has held the final closing of its previously-announced private placement at which it issued an aggregate of 5,115,000 “hard-dollar” units (“HD Units”) to “accredited investors” at a price of $0.05 per unit for gross proceeds to Argex of $255,750.

Each of the HD Units is comprised of one common share and one common share purchase warrant. Each full warrant entitles its holder to acquire one additional Argex common share at a price of $0.06 for a period of 24 months.

Argex will use the net proceeds from the sale of the HD Units for engineering and working capital.

Argex issued an aggregate of 30,174,940 HD Units in its private placement for gross proceeds to Argex of $1,508,747 as well as 6,400,000 “flow-through” units for gross proceeds of $320,000.

“We are very pleased with the interest that our private placement generated. It will provide Argex with an increased margin of maneuver and will allow us to concentrate on the financing and the construction of our Technology Center, thus pursuing our goal of succeeding as a low-cost and cleaner emerging producer of TiO2,” said Mazen Alnaimi, Chairman and CEO of Argex Titanium.

At the final closing, Argex issued an aggregate of 358,050 “broker warrants” to various securities dealers, representing an amount equal to 7% of the number of HD Units sold through such dealers. Each of the “broker warrants” entitles its holder to purchase one additional Argex common share at a price of $0.05844 for a period of 24 months.

The securities issued at the final closing of the private placement are subject to a four-month “hold period” under applicable securities regulations.
