Toronto, Ontario – December 8, 2021 – CANSTAR RESOURCES INC. (TSXV:ROX & OTCPK: CSRNF) (“Canstar” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has completed its previously announced non-brokered private placement, consisting of the sale of 14,412,471 flow-through units (each a “FT Unit”) at a price of $0.315 per FT Unit and 1,724,138 premium flow-through units (each a “Premium FT Unit”, and together with the FT Units, the “Offered Units”) at a price of $0.39 per Premium FT Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of $ $5,212,342.19 (the “Offering”). Each FT Unit is composed of one (1) common share (“Share”) of the Company issued on a flow-through basis within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada) (the “Tax Act”) and one-half of one (0.5) Share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant will entitle the subscriber to purchase one (1) additional Share at a price of $0.42 until the second (2nd) anniversary of the closing date of the Offering (the “Expiry Date”).
The Company will use an amount equal to the gross proceeds received by the Company from the sale of the Offered Units, pursuant to the provisions in the Income Tax Act (Canada) (the “Tax Act”), to incur eligible “Canadian exploration expenses” that qualify as “flow-through mining expenditures” as both terms are defined in the Income Tax Act (Canada) (the “Qualifying Expenditures”) on or before December 31, 2022, and to renounce all the Qualifying Expenditures in favour of the subscribers of the Offered Units effective December 31, 2021. The Company intends to use such proceeds primarily on the Golden Baie property, located in south Newfoundland, and the Buchan’s-Mary March property in central Newfoundland.
In connection with the closing of the Offering, the Company paid commissions to certain finders of an aggregate of $286,026.06 in cash and 908,019 finder warrants (each a, “Finder Warrant”). Each Finder Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one (1) Share at an exercise price of $0.315 per Finder Warrant for a period of 24 months from closing of the Offering.
The Offering is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary approvals including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV”) and the securities regulatory authorities. All securities issued and issuable in connection with the Offering are subject to a hold period of four months plus one day.
A certain director of Canstar (the “Insider”) subscribed to the Offering for an aggregate of 158,800 FT Units and the participation of the Insider in the Offering constitutes a “related party transaction” within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”). The Company is relying on an exemption from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 pursuant to section 5.5(a) and section 5.7(1)(a), as the fair market value of the Insider’s participation is not more than 25% of the Company’s market capitalization.
The securities offered in the Offering 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 U.S. state securities laws, and may not be offered or sold in the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, United States persons, absent registration or any applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the U.S. Securities Act and applicable U.S. state securities laws. This news release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of any offer to buy securities in the United States, nor in any other jurisdiction.
