Montreal, February 28, 2014 – Geomega Resources Inc. (“GéoMégA” or the “Company”) (TSX.V: GMA) announces it has entered into an engagement letter with Industrial Alliance Securities Inc. (“IAS”) for a private placement consisting of 3,333,333 units (the “Units“) at a subscription price of $0.60 per Unit and 1,450,000 flow-through shares (each, a “Flow-Through Share”), at a price of $0.70 per Flow-Through Share for gross proceeds of $3,015,000 (the “Private Placement”).
The Company will use the proceeds of the Private Placement for continued development of its separation process, exploration and development on its Montviel property in Quebec and working capital purposes.
Each Unit consists of one common share (a “Common Share“) and one-half of a share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant“). Each whole Warrant entitles the holder thereof to acquire one additional common share at a price of $0.90 per share for a period of 18 months from the closing date.
In connection with the Private Placement, the Company will pay a cash commission to IAS equal to 6.5% of the gross proceeds raised and will issue broker warrants equal to 5% of the total number of Units and Flow-Through Shares sold. Each broker warrant entitles the holder to purchase one common share for a period of 18 months from the date of issuance at a price of $0.60 per share.
The Company has granted IAS a 15 day over-allotment option (the “Over-Allotment Option”) to sell up to that number of additional Units that equals 15% of the aggregate number of Units sold through the Private Placement. Presuming full exercise of the Over-Allotment Option, the gross proceeds from the Private Placement will be $3,315,000 with 3,833,333 Units being sold.
The Private Placement is scheduled to close on or about March 10, 2014 and is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. All securities issued pursuant to the Private Placement will be subject to a four month and one day hold period from the date of closing of the Private Placement.
