TORONTO, April 03, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sprott Resource Holdings Inc. (“SRHI”) (TSX: SRHI) announced today that in connection with its previously announced “best efforts” marketed offering (the “Offering”) of units (the “Offered Units”), it has entered into an agency agreement with a syndicate of agents led by Sprott Capital Partners, a division of Sprott Private Wealth LP, and including Haywood Securities Inc., to sell up to 120,000,000 Offered Units at a price of $0.25 per Offered Unit for gross proceeds of up to $30,000,000.
Each Offered Unit consists of one class “A” common share in the capital of SRHI (a “Common Share”) and one Common Share purchase warrant in the capital of SRHI (a “Warrant”). Each Warrant will expire on February 9, 2022, and has a strike price of $0.333 per Common Share.
SRHI intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering towards making investments in the natural resources sector and for general working capital purposes.
Closing of the Offering will be subject to customary closing conditions including, without limitation, receipt of all regulatory and stock exchange approvals. SRHI has applied to list the Common Shares, the Warrants and the Common Shares issuable on the exercise of the Warrants on the Toronto Stock Exchange. Listing will be subject to SRHI fulfilling all of the applicable listing requirements of the Toronto Stock Exchange.
A preliminary short form prospectus (the “Prospectus”) containing important information relating to these securities was previously filed in all of the provinces of Canada, excluding Québec. For more information, potential investors should read the Prospectus which is available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com or may be obtained from Sprott Private Wealth LP (Royal Bank Plaza, South Tower, 200 Bay Street, Suite 2600, Toronto, Ontario, M5J 2J2, Canada) or Haywood Securities Inc. (700 – 200 Burrard Street, Vancouver, British Columbia, V6C 3L6, Canada). There will not be any sale or any acceptance of an offer to buy the Offered Units until a receipt for the final short form prospectus has been issued.
This press release does not constitute an offer to sell, or a solicitation of an offer to buy, any securities, nor shall there be any sale of securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer or sale would be unlawful. The Offered Units, Common Shares and Warrants, as well as the Common Shares issuable upon exercise of the Warrants, have not been and will not be registered under the U.S. Securities Act, or any securities or “blue sky” laws of any of the states of the United States.
