Barksdale Closes Financing and Completes Extension of Financial Instrument
Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - October 21, 2022) - Barksdale Resources Corp. (TSXV: BRO) (OTCQX: BRKCF) ("Barksdale" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that further to its news releases dated September 6, September 21 and October 3, 2022, it has now closed the final tranche of its non-brokered private placement financing ("Financing") with Teck Resources Limited ("Teck"), with respect to Teck's pro-rata equity participation right.
In the Financing, Teck subscribed for 550,000 units (the "Units") for gross proceeds of $264,000. The Units have identical terms to the Units issued in the first tranche of the Financing that closed on September 21, 2022 (see News Release dated September 21, 2022). Each Unit consists of one common share of Barksdale (each a "Common Share") and one-half (½) of one transferable share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"), with each Warrant entitling the holder thereof to purchase one additional Common Share at $0.72 for a period of three years. Teck now holds approximately 9.9% of Barksdale's current equity on a partially diluted basis.
The net proceeds from the entire Financing will be used to advance the Company's mineral projects and for general corporate and working capital purposes. All shares issued to Teck under the Financing are subject to a four month hold period expiring February 6, 2023. No fees or commissions were paid with respect to Teck's participation in the Financing.
Further to its news releases dated September 6 and October 14, 2022, the Company has now received TSX Venture Exchange acceptance to the extension of the maturity date of the secured convertible debentures ("Debentures") administered by Delbrook Capital Advisors Inc. by one year until December 31, 2023 ("Debenture Extension"). The Debentures have a remaining principal amount of $1,500,000 and all other terms of the Debentures remain unchanged except for the conversion price, which has increased to $0.55 per share from $0.45 per share.
Incidental to the Debenture Extension, the Company issued 206,595 units of the Company (the "Interest Units") in settlement of $99,166 of accrued interest payable on the Debentures. Each Interest Unit consists of one Common Share and one-half (½) of one share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, an "Interest Warrant"). Each Interest Warrant entitles the holder to acquire one Common Share at a price of $0.72 for a period of three years from the date of issuance. Any subsequent interest accrued under the Debentures is payable in cash in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Debentures.
In exchange for extending the Debentures, the Company has also issued an extension fee of 2,777,777 share purchase warrants, exercisable into 2,777,777 Common Shares at a price of $0.72, for a period lasting up to December 31, 2023 ("Extension Warrants").
Should any part of the Debentures be repaid or converted prior to the maturity date, a pro-rata portion of the Extension Warrants will have their maturity date accelerated to the later of (i) one year from closing of the Debenture Extension, and (ii) 30 days after the date of repayment or conversion.
All securities issued with respect to the Interest Units, Interest Warrants and Extension Warrants and underlying Common Shares are subject to a four month hold period expiring February 22, 2023.
