Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – July 13, 2020) – Royalty North Partners Ltd. (TSXV: RNP) (“RNP” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce that, further to its press releases dated June 26, 2020 and June 29, 2020, it has closed the non-brokered private placement financing (the “Private Placement“) by issuing 2,289,140 units (the “Units“) for gross proceeds of C$572,285.
Each Unit shall consist of one common share in the capital of the Company and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (the “Warrant“). Each whole Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase, for a period of five years from the date of issuance, one additional common share of the Company (each, a “Warrant Share“) at an exercise price of C$0.35 per Warrant Share.
The proceeds of the Private Placement will be used for potential investments and general corporate purposes. All securities issued pursuant to the Private Placement will be subject to a hold period expiring on November 13, 2020.
Certain directors of the Company subscribed for 544,000 Units in the financing. The transaction is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 (“MI 61-101“) in reliance on the exemptions set forth in sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101, as neither the fair market value of the securities to be distributed in the Private Placement nor the consideration to be received for those securities, in so far as the Private Placement involves the insiders, exceeds 25% of the market capitalization. The Board of Directors approved the Private Placement by resolutions on which the Directors did not vote with respect to their participation in the Private Placement.
The Company did not file a material change report more than 21 days before the expected closing of the Private Placement as the details of the Private Placement and the participation therein by related parties of the Company were not settled until shortly prior to closing and the Company wished to close on an expedited basis for sound business reasons.
On behalf of the Company,
Chief Executive Officer and Director
