Comstock Announces Non-Brokered Financing and Proposed Share Consolidation
Vancouver, BC – February 7, 2020 – Comstock Metals Ltd. (TSX-V: CSL) (“CSL” or the “Company”) today announced a proposed 5 to 1 share consolidation and a proposed non-brokered private placement of up to 3,000,000 units (the “Units”) priced, on a post-consolidated basis, at $0.10 per Unit for gross proceeds of up to $300,000 (the “Offering”).
The Units to be issued under the proposed Offering will consist of one common share of the Company and one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”). The Warrants will be exercisable for a period of 36 months from closing at a post-consolidated exercise price of $0.12 for the first 12 months following closing and a post-consolidated exercise price of $0.15 for the final 24 months of their term. Certain related parties of the Company may purchase Units under the Offering.
The Board of Directors of CSL believes that further equity financing is required in order for the Company to finance its current working capital requirements and for future business purposes. Given the current price of CSL’s common shares a consolidation of such shares is required under TSX Venture Exchange policies. The board of directors believes that a consolidation on the basis of 5 old shares of CSL for 1 new share of CSL will achieve such objectives.
The consolidation will be effective upon receipt of all the customary regulatory approvals. A further press release will be issued once such approvals are provided and the effective date of the consolidation is known.
