KWG Closes Previously Announced Private Placement of Flow-Through Units

Jan 1, 2021

KWG Resources Inc. has announced the closing of its previously announced non-brokered private placement of 280,000 flow-through units at a price of $1.5001 per Flow-Through Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of $420,028. Each Flow-Through Unit is comprised of one multiple voting share of the company  issued on a "flow-through" basis in accordance with the Income Tax Act (Canada) (each a "Flow Through Share") and one multiple voting share purchase warrant (each a "Warrant"), with each Warrant enabling the holder to acquire one Multiple Voting Share upon payment of $2.00 per share at any time before December 31, 2025. 

All of the securities issued pursuant to this Private Placement are subject to a four (4) month hold period. The Company's President and Chief Executive Officer subscribed for the entire Private Placement, prior to which he held the equivalent of 33,158,246 (3.04%) of the Company's subordinate voting shares. Following completion of the placement he holds the equivalent of 117,158,246 (9.97%) of the Company's subordinate voting shares and 201,158,246 (16%) thereof on a partly diluted basis if all warrants issued in this Private Placement will be exercised. 

The Private Placement is considered a "related party transaction" within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101") as a related party subscribed for the entire Private Placement. As no securities of the Company are listed on any of the prescribed exchanges set out in section 5.5(b) of MI 61-101, the Private Placement was exempt from the formal valuation requirements of MI 61-101. As well, since neither the fair market value of the subject matter of the transaction nor the fair market of the consideration for the transaction exceeded 25% of the Company's market capitalization (which is currently approximately $5.46 million), as set out in section 5.7(a) of MI 61-101, the Private Placement was exempt from the minority approval requirements of MI 61-101.

Given the uncertainty as to whether insiders of the Company would participate in the Private Placement, and to what extent, the Company has not had the opportunity to announce this related party transaction 21 days in advance of closing.
