DLP Resources Announces Exploration Update & Closing of Oversubscribed Private Placement of Flow-Through Shares

Published

on

Cranbrook, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – September 19, 2022) – DLP Resources Inc. (TSXV: DLP) (OTCQB: DLPRF) (“DLP” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce that drilling of the first hole, A22-001, at the Aurora copper-molybdenum project in Peru is at a depth of 188m with good visual copper mineralization throughout. Drilling of five holes at the Hungry Creek project and one hole at the Copper Creek project in SE BC has been completed with copper results awaited from the sampling of copper mineralization observed in the holes.

Private Placement

In addition to the summer drilling of copper projects in BC and Peru, DLP has closed its previously announced non-brokered private placement (the “Private Placement“), whereby the Company has completed the issuance of 2,120,000 flow through shares (each, a “FT Share“) at a price of $0.25 per FT Share for gross proceeds of $530,000.

In connection with the Private Placement, the Company issued 40,600 finder’s warrants (the “Finder’s Warrants“) and paid commissions of $10,150. Each Finder’s Warrant will entitle the holder, on exercise thereof, to acquire one additional common share in the capital of the Company at a price of $0.25 per share for a period of 18 months from the date of issuance.

The Private Placement remains subject to final acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange. The securities offered in the Private Placement are subject to a four month and a day transfer restriction from the date of issuance expiring on January 17, 2023, in addition to such other restrictions as may apply under applicable securities laws of jurisdictions outside Canada.

The Company intends to use the proceeds of the Private Placement for drilling on its Hungry Creek and Copper Creek Projects.

Certain insiders of the Company purchased an aggregate of 240,000 FT Shares in the Private Placement and such participation is considered to be a “related party transaction” as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 (“MI 61-101“). The Company has relied on the exemptions from the valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 contained in sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101 in respect of such insider participation. The Company did not file a material change report more than 21 days before the expected closing of First Tranche, as the details and amounts of the insider participation were not finalized until closer to the closing and the Company wished to close the transaction as soon as practicable for sound business reasons.

Expenses incurred by the Company on Hungry Creek and Copper Creek, copper-cobalt projects, may qualify for the 30% Critical Mineral Exploration Tax Credit (“CMETC“), as provided for in the Canadian federal budget of April 7, 2022. For more information on the CMETC, see the annex on tax measures proposed in the budget available at

Council adopts regulation on instant payments

Published

on

council-adopts-regulation-on-instant-payments

 

The Council adopted today a regulation that will make instant payments fully available in euro to consumers and businesses in the EU and in EEA countries.

The new rules will improve the strategic autonomy of the European economic and financial sector as they will help reduce any excessive reliance on third-country financial institutions and infrastructures. Improving the possibilities to mobilize cash-flows will bring benefits for citizens and companies and allow for innovative added value services.

The instant payments regulation will allow people to transfer money within ten seconds at any time of the day, including outside business hours, not only within the same country but also to another EU member state. The regulation takes into consideration particularities of non-euro area entities.

Payment service providers such as banks, which provide standard credit transfers in euro, will be required to offer the service of sending and receiving instant payments in euro. The charges that apply (if any) must not be higher than the charges that apply for standard credit transfers.

The new rules will come into force after a transition period that will be faster in the euro area and longer in the non-euro area, that needs more time to adjust.

The regulation grants access for payment and e-money institutions (PIEMIs) to payment systems, by changing the settlement finality Directive (SFD). As a result, these entities will be covered by the obligation to offer the service of sending and receiving instant credit transfers, after a transitional period. The regulation includes appropriate safeguards to ensure that the access of PIEMIs to payment systems doesn’t carry additional risk to the system.

Under the new rules, instant payment providers will need to verify that the beneficiary’s IBAN and name match in order to alert the payer to possible mistakes or fraud before a transaction is made. This requirement will apply to regular transfers too.

The regulation includes a review clause with a requirement for the Commission to present a report containing an evaluation of the development of credit charges.

Background

This initiative comes in the context of the completion of the capital markets union. The capital markets union is the EU’s initiative to create a truly single market for capital across the EU. It aims to get investment and savings flowing across all member states for the benefit of citizens, businesses, and investors.

On 26 October 2022 the Commission put forward a proposal on instant payments that amends and modernises the single euro payments area (SEPA) regulation of 2012 on standard credit transfers in euro by adding to it specific provisions for instant credit transfers in euro.

FCA highlights need for enhanced competition in wholesale data markets

Published

on

fca-highlights-need-for-enhanced-competition-in-wholesale-data-markets

 

The FCA has unveiled the outcomes of its in-depth study into the wholesale data market, focusing on the sectors of credit ratings data, benchmarks, and market data vendor services.

Despite deciding against major regulatory actions due to the risk of unintended consequences that could affect the data’s availability and quality—a crucial resource for global investors—the FCA has pinpointed several areas where competition could be significantly improved.

The study’s revelations indicate that the current state of competition in these markets may lead to users incurring higher costs for data than would be the case in a more competitive environment. This concern is particularly pressing given the critical role that such data plays in supporting effective investment decisions across the financial sector.

In a move to address these findings, the FCA has proposed initiatives aimed at ensuring wholesale data is distributed under fair, reasonable, and transparent conditions. This approach forms a part of the regulator’s broader strategy to ‘repeal and replace’ assimilated EU law, reinforcing the UK’s status as a premier global financial hub fostering investment, innovation, and sustainable growth.

Sheldon Mills, the FCA’s Executive Director of Consumers and Competition, emphasised the importance of quality and accessible wholesale data for the efficiency of financial markets. “The quality and availability of wholesale data is integral to well-functioning wholesale financial markets,” Mills stated. He further clarified, “Our market study found that firms can access the data they need to make effective investment decisions. We do not believe the case has been made for significant interventions. However, we will examine ways to help support wholesale data being provided on fair, reasonable and transparent terms.”

In its commitment to fostering a competitive and fair marketplace, the FCA will continue to scrutinize allegations of anti-competitive behavior across all markets, including wholesale data markets, leveraging its powers under the Competition Act to address any such issues.
