NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWS WIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES
Alphamin Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:AFM) ("Alphamin" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that is has agreed to raise $12.0 million by way of a non-brokered private placement (the "Private Placement") of 100,000,000 common shares at a price of $0.12 per common share (the "Shares"). The Private Placement is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange, shareholder approval, and other typical conditions to closing.
The Company intends to use the proceeds from the Private Placement for the further exploration and development of the Bisie Tin Project (the "Bisie Project"), a tin asset located in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Tremont Master Holdings ("Tremont") will be the sole purchaser of the Shares and, upon closing of the Private Placement, will own approximately 39.81% of the shares of the Company on an undiluted basis. As such, the Private Placement will result in the creation of a new control person (as such term is defined under securities laws), and in accordance with the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange shareholder approval of the Private Placement will be required.
The Shares will be acquired pursuant to the exemption in section 2.10 of National Instrument 45-106 Prospectus and Registration Exemptions.
The acquisition of the Shares is being made for investment purposes. Concurrently with the closing of the Private Placement, the Company and Tremont will enter into a pre-emptive rights agreement whereby Tremont will have the right to participate in any subsequent equity offering by the Company on a pro rata basis. This right will continue until the earlier of five years from the closing of the Private Placement and the date on which Tremont and its affiliates hold less than 20% of the issued and outstanding shares of the Company. Additionally, Tremont will be entitled to appoint two out of five directors of the Company. This right will continue until the later of two years from closing of the Private Placement and the date on which Tremont and its affiliates hold less than 20% of the issued and outstanding shares of the Company.
Alphamin is a TSX Venture Exchange listed tin explorer and developer. The Company's strategy is to locate next generation tin assets and leverage our exploration and development expertise to create sustainable tin production.
