Hunter Oil Closes Private Placement
Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - March 13, 2018) - Hunter Oil Corp. (TSXV: HOC) (OTCQX: HOILF) (the "Company") has closed the non-brokered private placement (the "Private Placement") of 5,000,000 common shares (the "Shares") of the Company at a price of CAN $0.40 per share to raise gross proceeds of CAN $2,000,000 announced February 27, 2018. The Shares are subject to a trading hold period expiring on July 14, 2018. The proceeds from the Private Placement will be used for operating expenditures and for general working capital purposes.
Pursuant to the Private Placement, insiders of the Company and their joint actors subscribed for an aggregate of 1,038,960 Shares representing approximately 7.95% of the outstanding Shares on closing. The participation of each insider is considered to be a "related party transaction" as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). As the distribution of the securities to the insiders is for cash with a fair market value of not more than $2,500,000, the sale of securities to insiders pursuant to the Private Placement is exempt from the valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101. The Company did not file a material change report more than 21 days before closing of the Private Placement because management believed that it was in the Company's best interest to close promptly and that the filing of a material change report in less than 21 days was reasonable under the circumstances.
