Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – February 18, 2021) – Buckhaven Capital Corp. (TSXV: BKH.P) (“Buckhaven“) is pleased to announce that further to its news release of February 12, 2021, 1254688 B.C. Ltd. (“125“) has closed a brokered private placement of 13,657,000 subscription receipts (the “Subscription Receipts“) at a price of $1.00 per Subscription Receipt for gross proceeds of $13,657,000 (the “Financing“). Sprott Capital Partners L.P. (“Sprott” or the “Agent“) acted as the agent in connection with the Financing. The Financing was completed in connection with Buckhaven’s proposed “Qualifying Transaction” (previously announced on August 18, 2020, November 3, 2020 and February 12, 2021) with 125 (the “Transaction“) pursuant to the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “Exchange“).
Each Subscription Receipt shall automatically convert to one common share of 125 (each, an “Underlying Share“), upon the delivery by the Corporation and Sprott to Capital Transfer Agency ULC (the “Escrow Agent“) of a release notice signed by each of 125 and Sprott (the “Release Notice“) confirming the satisfaction of certain conditions (collectively, the “Escrow Release Conditions“), which will include, among other things, that all conditions precedent to the closing of the Transaction have been satisfied or waived including the receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals.
The gross proceeds from the Financing less 50% of Sprott’s commission and all of its expenses were placed into escrow with the Escrow Agent.
In the event that the Escrow Agent does not receive the Release Notice prior to 5:00 pm. (Toronto time) on March 30, 2021 (the “Release Deadline“), or if prior to such time, 125 advises Sprott or announces to the public that it does not intend to satisfy the Escrow Release Conditions, the Subscription Receipts shall be null and void and the Escrow Agent will disburse the escrowed funds together with interest to the subscribers and 125 will make up any shortfall between the amount of the escrowed funds and the original subscription price.
If the Escrow Release Conditions are satisfied on or before the Release Deadline, the escrowed funds will be released to 125 less the other one-half of the Agent’s commission. Following release to 125, it is anticipated that the net proceeds of the Financing will be used for operational, exploration and generative activities on the San Bartolome silver operation and for general corporate purposes.
Upon the satisfaction of the Escrow Release Conditions and following a consolidation of Buckhaven’s outstanding common shares on a 1.5-for-1 basis (“Consolidation“), each Underlying Share will be exchanged for one post-Consolidation common share of Buckhaven (“Common Share“). Upon completion of the Transaction, all Common Shares will be freely tradeable, subject to any escrow restrictions, which may be imposed by the Exchange.
All information contained in this press release with respect to Buckhaven and 125 was supplied by the respective parties, for inclusion herein, and each party and its directors and officers have relied on the other party for any information concerning the other party.
Additional terms of the Transaction were previously disclosed in the press releases of Buckhaven and 125 dated August 18, 2020, November 3, 2020, and February 12, 2021 and are available on Buckhaven’s SEDAR profile at wwww.sedar.com.
