Lara Exploration to Raise up to $4 Million by Private Placement
NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO US NEWSWIRE SERVICES
NOR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
May 19th, 2022 (TSX Venture: LRA) - Lara Exploration Ltd. intends to undertake a private placement raising up to $4,000,000 by the issuance of 6,153,846 units at $0.65 per unit. Each unit shall consist of one common share and half of one non-transferable common share purchase warrant. Each full warrant will entitle the holder to purchase an additional common share at $1.00 for three years. If, after four months from closing, the closing price of the Company’s shares on the TSX Venture Exchange is $1.20 or greater for any period of 10 consecutive trading days, the Company may, by news release issued within five trading days thereof, accelerate the expiry of the warrants to the 21st trading day after such news release.
Miles Thompson, President and CEO of the Company, has undertaken to invest $300,000 to purchase 461,538 units of the private placement. His investment will constitute a “related party transaction” under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions but will be exempt from the formal valuation and approval by a majority of minority shareholders requirements thereof.
The Company will pay finder’s fees in respect of subscriptions from investors introduced by a finder. The fee will be 4% payable in cash, or at the finder’s election, the issuance of that number of units equal to 4% of the number of units issued pursuant to such subscriptions.
There can be no assurance that the private placement will be completed as proposed or at all, and it is subject to all applicable regulatory approvals. The shares, and any shares issued on the exercise of the warrants, will be subject to a four-month restricted resale period. The proceeds of the offering will be used by Lara to support new business efforts and for general corporate purposes.
