Montreal, Quebec / TheNewswire / April 28, 2017 - St-Georges Platinum and Base Metals Ltd. (CSE: SX) (OTC: XOOF) (FSE: 85G1) is pleased to announce that it has received an offer to finance the company by way of a convertible debenture with terms which the Company's management believes to be better than its previously announced equity financing.
On Friday April 28, the board of directors of the Company has authorised the company's management, by way of a resolution, to terminate the offer of the equity private placement initiated on April 11, 2017 (See Company's press release of the same date). Interested subscribers in the equity private placement will be given priority access to the debenture financing.
Conditional to regulatory approval the Company is proposing an 18-month convertible debenture financing for $300,000. The debenture's 10% annual interests will be capitalised and paid in shares at conversion or maturity. The debenture will be convertible in units of the company at a deemed price of $0.05 per units. The units will be comprised of one common share and one common share half warrant valid for 24 months and exercisable at $0.075
Related Parties Participation
Insiders will be participating in this financing.
Multilateral Instrument 61-101
Given the proposed participation of the insider holders, the proposed financing constitutes a "related party transaction" within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101").
St-Georges is relying on an exemption to both the formal valuation and the minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101, as neither the fair market value of the Units to be distributed to, nor the fair market value of the consideration to be received by St-Georges from the insider holders in connection with the proposed financing exceeds 25% of St-Georges' share capitalisation.
Finder & Brokers' Fees
Certain parties are expected to be paid a broker fee equivalent to 10% of the money raised with the convertible debenture.
