NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWS WIRE SERVICES OR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES.
Probe Mines Limited (TSX VENTURE:PRB) ("Probe" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has entered into a bought deal letter pursuant to which a syndicate of underwriters, co-led by Cormark Securities Inc. and BMO Capital Markets, who are also acting as joint bookrunners, will purchase 7,500,000 flow-through units of the Company ("FT Units") at a price of $2.00 per FT Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of $15,000,000 (the "Offering").
Each FT Unit will consist of one common share and three-quarters of one share purchase warrant (each whole share purchase warrant a "Warrant"). The common shares underlying the FT Units shall be issued on a flow-through basis. Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one additional common share of the Company at a price of $2.10 for a period of 24 months from closing.
The Offering is expected to close on or about May 28, 2013 and is subject to certain conditions including the receipt of all necessary approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange and applicable securities regulatory authorities, satisfactory completion of due diligence, and entry into a definitive underwriting agreement.
The gross proceeds from the sale of the FT Units will be used for Canadian Exploration Expenses ("CEE") (within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada)) and the Company will use its best efforts to ensure that such Canadian Exploration Expenses qualify as a "flow-through mining expenditure", for purposes of the Income Tax Act (Canada), related to the exploration of the Company's exploration projects. The Company will renounce such CEE with an effective date of no later than December 31, 2013.
This press 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 a U.S. person (as defined in Regulation S under the U.S. Securities Act) unless registered under the U.S. Securities Act and applicable state securities laws or an exemption from such registration is available.
