Kuya Silver Announces Results of Annual General and Special Shareholders Meeting, Closing of Final Tranche of $0.90 Unit Non-Brokered Private Placement, Issuance of Equity Awards and Debt Settlement
Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - June 30, 2022) - Kuya Silver Corporation (CSE: KUYA) (OTCQB: KUYAF) (FSE: 6MR1) (the "Company") is pleased to announce the results of its annual general and special meeting of shareholders held on June 29, 2022 (the "Meeting"). The Company put forward the following resolutions to be voted on by shareholders at the Meeting, all of which were approved: (1) the appointment of Davidson & Company LLP, Chartered Professional Accountants, as auditor to hold office until the next annual meeting of shareholders at a remuneration to be fixed by the Board; (2) the adoption of a 10% rolling equity incentive plan (the "Plan") that will replace the existing stock option plan; and (3) the election of David Stein, Dale Peniuk, Maura Lendon, Andres Recalde, and Javier Del Rio as directors to hold office until the next annual general meeting of the Company or until their earlier resignation.
The Company also announces that it has closed the second and final tranche of its non-brokered private placement previously announced on April 21, 2022 (the "Private Placement"). The final tranche consisted of 151,000 units ("Units") at a price of $0.90 per Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of $135,900. Together with the first tranche, the Company issued 804,334 Units and raised $723,900.60. The Company intends to use the proceeds from the Private Placement for general working capital purposes. Each Unit consists of one (1) common share (each, a "Common Share") in the capital of the Company and one-half of one (1/2) transferable common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one Common Share at a price of $1.20 per Common Share until the date that is two (2) years from the date of issuance. The Private Placement constituted a "related party transaction" as defined in Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Securityholders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"), as related parties of the Company acquired an aggregate of 134,222 Units. Following the acquisition, David Stein, President and CEO, holds 9,539,914 Common Shares or 20.69%, and Maura Lendon, Chair of the Board, holds 47,322 Common Shares or 0.10%. The Company is relying on the exemptions from the valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 contained in sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101, as the fair market value of the participation in the Private Placement by insiders does not exceed 25% of the market capitalization of the Company, as determined in accordance with MI 61-101. The Company did not file a material change report in respect of the related party transaction at least 21 days before the closing of the Offering, which the Company deems reasonable in the circumstances in order to complete the Offering in an expeditious manner.
Equity Incentive Awards
The Company further announces that, pursuant to the Plan, it has approved the grant of 700,000 restricted share units ("RSUs") to certain officers and employees. The RSUs are subject to vesting, and at each vesting date, convert into Common Shares for no additional consideration.
Lastly, the Company has also completed a debt settlement with one arm's-length creditor, which will result in an aggregate of USD$18,000.00 of indebtedness being retired in consideration for the issuance of 26,000 Units at a price of $0.90 per Unit (the "Debt Settlement").
The Private Placement, RSUs and Debt Settlement are subject to Canadian Securities Exchange approval.
All securities issued in connection with the Private Placement, RSUs and Debt Settlement are subject to a hold period expiring four months and one day from the date of issuance.
