/NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES/
VANCOUVER, BC, Aug. 16, 2022 /CNW/ - Barsele Minerals Corp. (TSXV: BME) (the "Company" or "Barsele") is pleased to announce that, due to strong demand from prospective subscribers, the Company has upsized its previously announced non-brokered private placement (the "Offering") to up to 6,666,666 units of the Company ("Units") at a price of $0.30 per Unit to raise aggregate gross proceeds of up to approximately $2,000,000.
The other terms of the Offering announced on August 12, 2022 remain unchanged. The closing of the Offering, anticipated to be on or about August 23, 2022, remains subject to certain conditions, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV").
Certain insiders are expected to participate in the Offering. As a result, the Offering will be considered a "related party transaction" pursuant to Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). The Offering is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 by the application of Sections 5.5(b) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101 because the shares trade on the TSXV and the fair market value of insiders' participation is anticipated to be below 25% of the Company's market capitalization as calculated for purposes of MI 61-101.
The securities described herein 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 within the United States except in compliance with the registration requirements of the U.S. Securities Act and applicable state securities requirements or pursuant to exemptions therefrom. This press release is not an offer or a solicitation of an offer of securities for sale in the United States, nor will there be any sale of the securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
