MIRAMICHI, NEW BRUNSWICK--(Marketwire - Nov. 28, 2012) -
NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES
SLAM Exploration Ltd. (News - Market indicators) (the "Company") announced today that it has closed the first tranche of its previously announced non-brokered private placement (the "Private Placement") for aggregate gross proceeds of $459,500. Please see the Company's news release dated November 20, 2012 for further details regarding the Private Placement.
The Company issued 1,652,500 flow-through units (each, a "FT-Unit") at a subscription price of $0.20 per FT-Unit in connection with the first tranche, for aggregate gross proceeds of $330,500. Each FT-Unit is comprised of one flow-through common share in the capital of the Company and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). The Company also issued 806,250 non-flow-through units (each, a "Unit") in connection with the first tranche at a subscription price of $0.16 per Unit, for aggregate gross proceeds of $129,000. Each Unit is comprised of one non-flow-through common share and one whole Warrant. The Company issued an aggregate of 826,250 Warrants as part of the FT-Units and an aggregate of 806,250 Warrants as part of the Units. Each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to acquire one non-flow-through common share at a price of $0.25 for a period of 12 months or at a price of $0.50 for an additional 12 months thereafter, expiring on November 27, 2014. The FT-Units and Units are subject to a four-month hold period expiring on March 28, 2013. A due diligence fee of $4,000 was paid in connection with the first tranche of the Private Placement but no finder's fees were paid.
The Company expects to complete a second tranche of the Private Placement on the same terms as the first tranche on or about November 30, 2012. The Company may pay finder's fees in accordance with the rules and policies of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV") on funds raised in connection with the second tranche.
Pursuant to Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"), the Private Placement constitutes a "related party transaction" as insiders of the Company subscribed for an aggregate of 300,000 FT-Units in the first tranche, or approximately 18% of the total number of FT-Units issued pursuant to the first tranche. The Company is relying on exemptions from the formal valuation and minority approval requirements of MI 61-101, based on a determination that the securities of the Company are only listed on the TSXV and that the fair market value of the first tranche, insofar as it involves interested parties, does not exceed $2,500,000 and/or 25% of the market capitalization of the Company at the time the Private Placement was initially announced. The Private Placement was approved by all of the independent directors of the Company.
For additional information about the Private Placement call Darlene Ettinger at 506-627-1353 or 1.866.523.6719. The proceeds from the issuance of the FT-Units will be used to fund exploration on the Company's gold and base metal projects mainly in New Brunswick. The proceeds from the issuance of the Units will be used for general corporate purposes. The Private Placement remains subject to the final approval of the TSXV.
