Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – April 12, 2021) – Daura Capital Corp. (TSXV: DUR.P) (the “Company” or “Daura“), a capital pool company under the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV“), is pleased to announce that the TSXV has conditionally approved the Company’s proposed qualifying transaction (the “Qualifying Transaction“) with Estrella Gold S.A.C. (“Estrella“) and the shareholders of Estrella (the “Estrella Shareholders“) as more particularly described in the Company’s news release dated March 30, 2021. In addition, the Company has filed its filing statement dated March 31, 2021 relating to the Qualifying Transaction.
The Company also announced that it has increased the minimum amount of the proposed non-brokered private placement financing to be completed concurrent with closing of the Transaction (the “QT Financing“). As amended, under the terms of the QT Financing, the Company will offer a minimum of 13,250,000 units (each a “Unit”) and a maximum of up to 15,000,000 Units at a price of $0.20 per Unit for gross proceeds of between $2,650,000 and $3,000,000. As previously announced, each Unit will consist of one common share of the Company (a “Daura Share“) and one-half of one share purchase warrant (each a “Warrant“), with each whole Warrant entitling the holder to purchase one additional Daura Share at a price of $0.30 per share for a period of two years from the date of issuance. Net proceeds from the Concurrent Financing will be used to fund exploration of the Cochabamba Project, expenses related to the Qualifying Transaction and for general working capital purposes.
Subject to the approval of the TSXV, Daura may pay eligible finders a fee equal to 7% of the Concurrent Financing in cash, and 7% in share purchase warrants under the QT Financing. All securities issued under the QT Financing will be subject to hold periods expiring four months and one day after the date of issuance. Additional restrictions may apply under the rules of the TSXV and applicable securities laws.
This news release does not constitute an offer to sell, or solicitation of an offer to buy, nor will there be any sale of any of the securities offered in any jurisdiction where such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful, including the United States of America. The securities being offered as part of the QT Financing have not been, and will not be, registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “U.S. Securities Act”), or any state securities laws, and accordingly may not be offered or sold in the United States except in compliance with the registration requirements of the U.S. Securities Act and any applicable state securities laws, or pursuant to available exemptions therefrom.
The Company anticipates completing the Qualifying Transaction and the QT Financing by the end of June 2021.
