Vancouver, BC, June 5, 2014 -- Aurcana Corporation ("Aurcana" or the "Company") (TSXV: AUN, OTCQX: AUNFF) announces that it has amended the terms of its marketed underwritten private placement as previously announced on April 28, 2014.
Aurcana has engaged Dundee Securities Ltd. (the "Underwriter") to act as a sole underwriter in connection with a marketed underwritten private placement of an aggregate of up to 8,000,000 units (each unit a "Unit") of the Company at a reduced purchase price of Cdn$0.55 per Unit (the "Purchase Price") for reduced aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of up to Cdn$4,400,000 (the "Offering").
Each Unit will consist of one common share (a "Share") of the Company and one common share purchase warrant (each a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase an additional common share (a "Warrant Share") of the Company at a reduced exercise price of Cdn$0.80 per Warrant Share for a period of 36 months from the closing of the Offering.
In addition, Aurcana, will grant to the Underwriter an option (the "Over-Allotment Option") to purchase up to an additional 1,200,000 Units (for additional gross proceed of Cdn$660,000) exercisable at the Purchase Price at any time in whole or in part up to 48 hours prior to the closing date. If this option is exercised in full, the aggregate gross proceeds to Aurcana will be Cdn$5,060,000.
In consideration for the services provided by the Underwriter to the Company under the Offering, the Company will pay to the Underwriter a commission of 6% of the gross proceeds raised under the Offering, including any Units sold under the Over-Allotment Option payable by the issuance of Units. In addition, the Company will issue to the Underwriter a compensation warrant which entitles the Underwriter to purchase such number of common shares of the Company as is equal to 6% of the number of Units sold under the Offering, including any Units sold under the Over-Allotment Option, exercisable at the Purchase Price for a period of 24 months from the Closing.
The net proceeds from the Offering will be used for the acquisition of mining equipment at the La Negra mine, exploration drilling at the La Negra property and for general working capital purposes.
Completion of the Offering is scheduled for on or about June 24, 2014, subject to the receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. All securities issued in connection with the Offering will be subject to a hold period under applicable securities laws expiring four months and one day following issuance of the securities.
The offer and sale of the securities offered in the Offering has not been and will not be registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or any state securities laws, and such securities may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from such registration requirements.
