Toronto, Ontario, June 23rd, 2021 (NEWSFILE) – Ready Set Gold Corp. (“Ready Set Gold” or the “Company”) (CSE: RDY | FSE: 0MZ | USA: RDYFF) announces, further to its announcement on June 18, 2021, that it has closed the first tranche of a private placement (the “Private Placement”) of units (the “Units”), resulting in the issuance of 1,820 Units at a price of $1,000 per Unit for gross proceeds to the Company of $1,820,000. Each Unit is comprised of (i) a $1,000 principal amount of 7.5% senior unsecured convertible debenture with a three-year term (a “Debenture”), and (ii) 3,334 common share purchase warrants of the Company (each warrant referred to as a “Warrant”).
Each Debenture is convertible at any time after the date of issue at the option of the holder into common shares in the capital of the Company (“Common Shares”) at a price of $0.27 per Common Share (the “Conversion Price”), subject to adjustment. After 24 months following the date of issue, if the Common Shares trade at or above $0.90, based on the trailing 30-day volume‑weighted average price of the Common Shares traded on the CSE, the Company will have the right, exercisable within 10 business days of the end of the trading period, to require the automatic conversion of the Debentures at the Conversion Price by giving the holder 10 business days’ prior written notice. The Debentures are repayable on demand on 10 business days’ notice to the Company in the event of a change of control of the Company.
Each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to acquire one Common Share (a “Warrant Share”) at a price of $0.47 per share for a period of 36 months from the date of issue.
In connection with the Private Placement closing, the Company will accept a qualified and experienced nominee of the investors to sit on the board of directors of the Company, and the identity of the said nominee will be announced upon closing of the financing.
All securities issued in connection with the Private Placement will be subject to a statutory hold period of four-months and one day. Completion of the Private Placement is subject to the approval of the Canadian Securities Exchange.
The proceeds from the Private Placement will be used for continued exploration at the Company’s Northshore Project, Hemlo Eastern Flanks Project, Emmons Peak Project, and for working capital and general corporate purposes. A finder’s fee equal to 6% of the gross proceeds raised in the initial tranche is payable in connection with the closing of this initial tranche of the Private Placement. The final closing is expected to be on or about July 7th, 2021.
