(TSX.V: FFOX)(OTCQB: FFOXF) (“FireFox” or the “Company”) announces, effective December 19th, subject to regulatory acceptance, it will have successfully completed the non-brokered private placement (the “Private Placement”) announced on November 21, 2022 ($0.5M) with an oversubscription resulting in gross proceeds of $1,068,480.
The first tranche that closed on December 9th raised total gross proceeds of $773,480 by issuing 9,668,500 units at a purchase price of $0.08 per unit. The second tranche will raise total gross proceeds of $295,000 by issuing 3,687,500 units at a purchase price of $0.08 per unit when it closes on December 19th. Each unit consists of one common share of the Company and one common share purchase warrant, with each whole warrant being exercisable to acquire one additional common share of the Company at an exercise price of C$0.12 per share for a term of two years from the date of issuance. The shares issued pursuant to the Private Placement will be subject to a statutory hold period of four months plus one day from the date of issuance, in accordance with applicable securities legislation.
The Company intends to use the proceeds of the Private Placement for general corporate purposes, working capital and exploration activities on FireFox’s gold exploration properties in Finland.
Certain directors, officers and other insiders of the Company purchased or acquired direction and control over a total of 270,000 units under the private placement. The placement to those persons constitutes a “related party transaction” within the meaning of TSX Venture Exchange Policy 5.9 and Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”) adopted in the Policy. The Company has relied on exemptions from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 contained in sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61 101 in respect of related party participation in the placement as neither the fair market value (as determined under MI 61-101) of the subject matter of, nor the fair market value of the consideration for, the transaction, insofar as it involved the related parties, exceeded 25% of the Company’s market capitalization (as determined under MI 61-101).
