Vancouver, BC– Summa Silver Corp (“Summa” or the “Company”)(TSXV: SSVR, OTCQB: SSVRF, Frankfurt: 48X) announces that it has closed: (i) its previously announced brokered private placement offering (the “Offering”) for gross proceeds of approximately $9.33 million consisting of 10,377,765 units of the Company (the “Units”) at a price of $0.90 per Unit (the “Offering Price”), with a non-brokered portion of the offering (“Non-Brokered Portion”) for gross proceeds of approximately $2.16 million consisting of 2,400,000 Units at the Offering Price, for aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of approximately $11.5 million. Mr. Eric Sprott and First Majestic Silver Corp. subscribed into the Offering as lead subscribers.
The Offering was led by Research Capital Corporation and Eventus Capital Corp., as co-lead agents and joint bookrunners (collectively, the “Agents”).
Each Unit will be comprised of one common share of the Company (a “Common Share”) and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”). Each whole Warrant shall be exercisable to acquire one Common Share (a “Warrant Share”) at a price of $1.20 per Warrant Share for a period of 36 months from the closing of the Offering.
The net proceeds from the Offering are expected to be used for exploration, corporate development, and general working capital purposes.
“Closing this financing places the Company in a strong position to aggressively drill two high-grade silver projects in the United States in 2022,” said Galen McNamara, Chief Executive Officer of the Company. “I would like to thank all new and existing shareholders whose support we are grateful for. We look forward to the continued pursuit of high-grade silver mineralization over the coming weeks and months.”
In connection with the Offering, the Agents received an aggregate cash fee in an amount equal to 6.0% of the gross proceeds from the Offering. In addition, the Company granted the Agents non-transferable compensation warrants (the “Compensation Warrants”) in an amount equal to 6.0% of the total number of Units sold pursuant to the Offering. Each Compensation Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share at an exercise price of $0.90 per Common Share for a period of 36 months following the Closing. In connection with the Non-Brokered Portion, the Company paid cash finder’s fees of $108,000 and issued 120,000 finder’s warrants, on the same terms and conditions as the Compensation Warrants, to certain finders.
The Offering constitutes a related party transaction within the meaning of TSX Venture Exchange Policy 5.9 and Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101“) as insiders of the Company subscribed for 2,247,200 Units pursuant to the Offering. The Company is relying on the exemptions from the valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 contained in sections 5.5(b) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101, as the Company is not listed on a specified market and the fair market value of the participation in the Offering by the insider does not exceed 25% of the market capitalization of the Company in accordance with MI 61-101.
The securities described herein have not been, and will not be, registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “U.S. Securities Act”), or any state securities laws, and accordingly, may not be offered or sold within the United States except in compliance with the registration requirements of the U.S. Securities Act and applicable state securities requirements or pursuant to exemptions therefrom. This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation to buy any securities in any jurisdiction.
