GRANDE PRAIRIE, AB, (September 18, 2023): Angkor Resources Corp. (TSXV: ANK and OTC: ANKOF) (“Angkor” or “the Company”) announces it has completed a non-brokered private placement and will issue 2,857,143 units (each a “Unit”) for gross proceeds of CAD $200,000 (the “Offering”). As previously announced, each was offered at $0.07 and is comprised of one common share (each a “Common Share”) and one Share purchase warrant entitling the holder to acquire one (1) Common Share at CAD$0.10 for a period three years from the date of issuance.
The net proceeds of the Offering will be for general corporate purposes and no commission, finder’s fee or similar payment (whether in the form of cash, securities or an interest in assets) will be paid by the Company in connection with the Offering.
An insider of the Company has participated in the private placement and acquired 1,428,571 units for proceeds of $100,000. The participation of the CEO in the private placement constitutes a Related Party Transaction within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”). The Company has determined that the transaction is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements contained in sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101 for the related party transaction, as neither the fair market value of securities issued to the insiders nor the consideration paid by the insiders exceeded 25 percent of the Company’s market capitalization. The Company did not file a material change report in respect of the transaction 21 days in advance of the closing of the private placement because insider participation had not been confirmed. The shorter period was necessary in order to permit the Company to close the private placement in a timeframe consistent with usual market practice for transactions of this nature.
This private placement remains subject to the final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. All securities issued under the placement are subject to a statutory hold period that expires on January 19, 2024.
