TORONTO, Aug. 11, 2022 /CNW/ - Talisker Resources Ltd. ("Talisker" or the "Company") (TSX: TSK) (OTCQB: TSKFF) is pleased to announce that it has closed the "best efforts" private placement previously announced on July 20, 2022, August 4, 2022 and August 5, 2022, raising total gross proceeds of approximately $9.15 million (the "Offering"). In connection with the Offering, the Company issued an aggregate of 28,398,000 units (the "Units") at a price of $0.16 per Unit and 25,576,000 flow-through common shares (the "FT Shares", and together with the Units, the "Offered Securities") of the Company at a price of $0.18 per FT Share.
Each Unit consists of one common share of the Company (a "Common Share") and one common share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share at an exercise price of $0.24 for a period of 2.5 years (30 months) from the date of issuance. The FT Shares will qualify as "flow-through shares" within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada) (the "Tax Act").
An amount equal to the gross proceeds from the sale of the FT Shares will be used by the Company to incur eligible "Canadian exploration expenses" that will qualify as "flow-through mining expenditures" (as such terms are defined in the Tax Act) (the "Qualifying Expenditures") related to the Company's projects in Canada. The Qualifying Expenditures will be renounced by the Company in favour of the subscribers of the FT Shares effective December 31, 2022. The net proceeds from the sale of the Units will be used by the Company for working capital and general corporate purposes.
The Offering was conducted by Sprott Capital Partners LP and PI Financial Corp., as co-lead agents, on behalf of a syndicate of agents that included Eight Capital and 3L Capital (collectively, the "Agents"). In connection with the Offering, the Company paid the Agents cash commission of 8.0% of the gross proceeds of the Offering, excluding gross proceeds from the sale of Offered Securities to certain purchasers on the President's List or as agreed upon between the Company and the Agents. The Agents also received, in connection with certain advisory services provided by the Agents in connection with the Offering, cash advisory fees of $19,040.
The Offered Securities issued pursuant to the Offering, including the Common Shares and Warrants comprising the Units, are subject to a four month hold period pursuant to applicable securities laws.
