Kelowna, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - April 18, 2023) - F3 Uranium Corp. (TSXV: FUU) (OTCQB: FUUFF) ("F3 Uranium" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with Red Cloud Securities Inc., as lead underwriter and sole bookrunner, on behalf of a syndicate of underwriters (collectively, the "Underwriters"), pursuant to which the Underwriters have agreed to purchase for resale 17,021,277 flow-through units of the Company (each, a "FT Unit") at a price of C$0.47 per FT Unit (the "Offering Price") on a "bought deal" basis in a private placement for gross proceeds of C$8,000,000 (the "Underwritten Offering").
Each FT Unit will consist of one common share of the Company (each, a "Common Share") to be issued as a "flow-through share" within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada) (each, a "FT Share") and one half of one Common Share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each whole Warrant shall entitle the holder to purchase one Common Share at a price of C$0.47 at any time on or before that date which is 36 months after the Closing Date (as herein defined).
The Company will grant to the Underwriters an option, exercisable up to 48 hours prior to the Closing Date (as defined below), to purchase for resale up to an additional 4,255,319 FT Units (the "Over-Allotment Units") at the Offering Price for additional gross proceeds of up to C$2,000,000 (the "Over-Allotment Option", and together with the Underwritten Offering, the "Offering").
The Company will have the right to include a list of subscribers to purchase up to 531,914 FT Units at the Offering Price for gross proceeds of up to C$250,000 under the Offering (the "President's List"). The President's List will be allocated under the Over-Allotment Option and, for greater certainty, all purchasers under the Over-Allotment Option will receive Over-Allotment Units on the terms of the Offering and subject to certain resale restrictions as described below.
A total of 10,638,298 FT Units under the Underwritten Offering will be offered by way of the "listed issuer" exemption under National Instrument 45-106 - Prospectus Exemptions in all the provinces of Canada with the exception of Quebec (the "Selling Jurisdictions"). The Common Shares issuable from the sale of these 10,638,298 FT Units are expected to be immediately freely tradeable under applicable Canadian securities legislation if sold to purchasers resident in Canada. The remaining 6,382,979 FT Units to be sold under the Underwritten Offering as well as the Over-Allotment Units will be offered by way of the "accredited investor" and minimum amount investment" exemptions under National Instrument 45-106 - Prospectus Exemptions in the Selling Jurisdictions. The Common Shares issuable from the sale of these 6,382,979 FT Units as well as the Over-Allotment Units will be subject to a restricted period in Canada ending on the date that is four months plus one day following the closing of the Offering as defined in Subsection 2.5(2) of Multilateral Instrument 45-102 - Resale of Securities.
The Offering is expected to close on May 26, 2023 (the "Closing Date"). The Company will pay to the Underwriters a cash commission of 6.0% of the gross proceeds raised in respect of the Offering (the "Underwriters' Commission"). In addition, the Company will issue to the Underwriters warrants of the Company (each warrant, a "Broker Warrant"), exercisable for a period of 24 months following the Closing Date, to acquire in aggregate that number of Common Shares which is equal to 6.0% of the number of FT Units sold under the Offering at an exercise price equal to C$0.35 per Common Share.
All FT Units sold to purchasers under the President's List will be subject to a reduced Underwriters' Commission of 3.0% and that number of Broker Warrants equal to 3.0% of the number of FT Units sold to purchasers under the President's List.
The proceeds of the Offering will be used by the Company to fund exploration of the Company's projects in the Athabasca Basin.
