VANCOUVER, JANUARY 19, 2018. OSPREY GOLD DEVELOPMENT LTD. (the “Company” or “Osprey”) (TSXV: OS, OTCQB: OSSPF) The Company announces that, subject to TSX Venture Exchange (“Exchange”) approval, it is undertaking a non-brokered private placement comprised of up to 13,333,333 units of the Company (the “Units”) at an issue price of $0.075 per Unit for gross proceeds of up to $1,000,000 (the “Offering”). The Offering is not subject to any minimum subscription.
Each Unit will consist of one common share in the capital of the Company (a “Common Share”) and one Common Share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”), with each Warrant entitling the holder thereof to acquire an additional Common Share at an exercise price of $0.12 per Common Share for 24 months from the date of issuance (the “Closing Date”).
Subject to the approval of the Exchange, finders’ fees, which may consist of cash and/or finders’ warrants exercisable to acquire one Common Share at a price of $0.12 per share for a period of 24 months, may be paid in respect of subscriptions by certain arm’s length subscribers.
The Offering is being made available to existing shareholders of the Company who qualify under the “existing security holder prospectus exemption” available in certain jurisdictions in Canada (the “Existing Security Holder Exemption”).
As the Existing Security Holder Exemption contains certain restrictions and is only available in certain jurisdictions in Canada, subscribers that do not qualify under the Existing Security Holder Exemption may qualify to participate under other prospectus exemptions, such as the accredited investor exemption.
To comply with the criteria of the Existing Security Holder Exemption, the ability of existing shareholders holders to participate in the Offering shall be subject to, among other criteria, the following:
- January 18, 2018 has been set as the record date (the “Record Date”) for the purpose of determining existing security holders entitled to purchase Units pursuant to the Existing Shareholder Exemption;
- To participate, a qualified shareholder must deliver an executed subscription agreement in the required form, which will include the requirements of the Existing Security Holder Exemption.
- The aggregate acquisition cost to a subscriber under the Existing Security Holder Exemption cannot exceed $15,000 per twelve month period unless that subscriber has obtained advice from a registered investment dealer regarding the suitability of the investment.
- Subscriptions will be accepted by the Company on a “first come, first served basis”. Therefore, if the Offering is over-subscribed it is possible that a shareholders subscription may not be accepted by the Company. Additionally, in the event of an imbalance of large subscriptions compared to smaller subscriptions, management reserves the right in its discretion to reduce large subscriptions in favour of smaller shareholder subscriptions.
Further terms and conditions shall be set out in the form of subscription agreement that will be made available to interested shareholders, who are directed to contact the Company’s President, Cooper Quinn in accordance with the contact information provided below.
The net proceeds of the private placement will be used, at management’s discretion, for exploration and advancement of Osprey’s properties located in Nova Scotia, Canada, costs associated with evaluation, acquisition and advancement of new properties, and general working capital including related party payments for salaries and consulting fees. All securities to be issued in connection with the private placement will be subject to a hold period of four months and one day from the date of issuance.
