Financing by Cabral
Shortly prior to closing of the Transaction, Cabral completed a third tranche of its private placement financing (the "Offering"). The third tranche was completed on a non-brokered basis, with Cabral raising gross proceeds of approximately $559,000 through the sale of 5,175,334 subscription receipts (the "Subscription Receipts") at a price of $0.108 per Subscription Receipt. In connection with the third tranche of the Offering, Cabral issued a total of 238,323 special warrants (the "Special Warrants") to various finders and paid cash finders' fees totalling approximately $25,739 to the finders.
Cabral raised total gross proceeds of approximately $4.16 million in the Offering, through the sale of 38,507,414 Subscription Receipts. Immediately prior to the closing of the Transaction, each Subscription Receipt issued in the Offering was converted, without additional consideration into one unit of Cabral which, in conjunction with the closing of the Transaction, was exchanged for 0.18 of one unit of the Company. Each whole unit of the Company (a "Unit") was comprised of one post-consolidation common share of the Company, one-half of one class A warrant and onehalf of one class B warrant. Each whole class A warrant entitles the holder to purchase one postconsolidation common share of the Company at a price of $0.75 until October 30, 2018, and each whole class B warrant entitles the holder to purchase one post-consolidation common share of the Company at a price of $0.90 until October 30, 2019.
Immediately prior to the closing of the Transaction, each Special Warrant was automatically exercised into a compensation warrant of Cabral, which, in conjunction with closing of the Transaction, was exchanged for 0.18 of a compensation warrant of the Company. Each compensation warrant entitles the holder to acquire one Unit of the Company at an exercise price of $0.60 until October 30, 2019.
The net proceeds of the Offering will be used to finance the Company's work program on the Cuiú Cuiú project and for general working capital, as more particularly described in the filing statement of the Company dated October 23, 2017.
