(the “Company”) (CSE: BNKR; OTCQB: BHLL) is pleased to announce that it has priced its previously announced private placement (the “Offering”) of up to C$9 million of special warrants of the Company (the “Special Warrants”). The Special Warrants issuable by the Company pursuant to the Offering will be priced at C$0.12 per Special Warrant (the “Offering Price”). The Agents (as defined below) also have the option to sell up to an additional 15% of the Special Warrants sold pursuant to the Offering at the Offering Price, exercisable in whole or in part as determined by the Agents upon written notice to the Company at any time up to 48 hours prior to the final closing date of the Offering. The Offering Price was determined in the context of the market following discussions with the Agents.
Echelon Wealth Partners Inc. and Roth Capital Partners, LLC, each as co-lead agents and joint bookrunners, and Laurentian Bank Securities Inc. (collectively, the “Agents”), have agreed to act as agents for and on behalf of the Company on a commercially reasonable “best efforts” agency basis, without underwriter liability, in connection with the Offering.
Each Special Warrant issuable by the Company pursuant to the Offering shall be exercisable, for no additional consideration and with no further action on the part of the holder thereof, into one unit of the Company (each, a “Unit”), subject to adjustment as described below, on the earlier of: (i) the third business day after the date upon which the registration statement (the “Registration Statement”) of the Company filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) registering the resale of the securities underlying the Units issuable upon exercise or deemed exercise of the Special Warrants has been declared effective by the SEC; and (ii) the date that is six months following the Initial Closing Date (as defined below), subject to compliance with United States securities laws.
Each Unit shall consist of one share of common stock and one common stock purchase warrant (each, a “Warrant”) of the Company. Each Warrant shall entitle the holder thereof to purchase one share of common stock of the Company (a “Warrant Share”) at a price of C$0.15 per Warrant Share, subject to adjustment in certain events, for a period of 36 months following the applicable closing date.
The Offering is expected to close in multiple tranches, with the first tranche expected to close on or about March 9, 2023 (the “Initial Closing Date”), subject to regulatory approval.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering, if any, for working capital, general corporate purposes, and capital expenditures relating to the Bunker Hill Mine.
