Skyledger Tech Corp. Announces Proposed Transaction to Acquire Yukon Properties
Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - October 15, 2020) - Skyledger Tech Corp. (CSE: SKYL) (the "Company" or "Skyledger") announces that it has entered into a non-binding letter of intent (the "LOI") dated October 15, 2020 with 18526 Yukon Inc. (the "Vendor"), an arm's length party, which sets out the general terms and conditions pursuant to which the Company will acquire all of the issued and outstanding shares of a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Vendor (the "Target") from the Vendor in exchange for the Consideration Shares and the Cash Payments, as further detailed below (the "Transaction"). The Target will own the Einarson (as to 70% with the balance owned by a third party), Rogue, Tosh, Cliff, Rainbow and Cynthia claims located in the Yukon (the "Properties").
If completed, the Transaction will constitute a "fundamental change" of Skyledger pursuant to the policies of the Canadian Securities Exchange (the "CSE"). Upon completion of the Transaction, Skyledger intends to be listed on the CSE as a mining issuer and will principally focus on the exploration and development of the Properties. The resulting issuer that will exist upon completion of the Transaction (the "Resulting Issuer") will continue to operate under the name Snowline Gold Corp.
The final structure of the Transaction will be determined by the parties following receipt of tax, corporate and securities law advice. The Transaction is an arm's length transaction. Upon closing of the Transaction and the Concurrent Private Placement (defined below) (the "Closing"), it is expected that current shareholders of Skyledger will hold approximately 37% of the common shares of the Resulting Issuer, current shareholders of 18526 will hold approximately 32% of the common shares of the Resulting Issuer and new shareholders as a result of the private placement financings described below under "Financings" will hold approximately 31% of the common shares of the Resulting Issuer.
Further details of the proposed Transaction will follow in future news releases.
Terms of the Transaction
Pursuant to the LOI, the Company has agreed to acquire the Properties from the Vendor for total consideration of (a) 27,500,000 common shares of the Company (the "Consideration Shares"), (b) $1,000,000 in cash on Closing, (c) $250,000 in cash on each of the first, second, third and fourth anniversaries of Closing, and (d) $1,000,000 upon the Company announcing either a measured, indicated, inferred, or any combination thereof, mineral resource of at least 1,000,000 ounces of gold on a Property (the "Cash Payments"). The Vendor will retain a royalty equal to 2.0% of the net smelter returns in respect of each of the Properties.
Description of the Property
The Vendor currently owns the Einarson (as to 70% with the balance owned by a third party), Rogue, Tosh, Cliff, Rainbow and Cynthia claims located in the Yukon covering 66,528 Hectares (164,394 Acres). The Vendor is in the process of preparing current technical report on each of Einarson and Rogue, which are expected to be the mineral properties material to the Resulting Issuer. Further and more fulsome disclosure will be provided in subsequent news releases. The technical reports will be filed on the Company's SEDAR profile once they have been finalized.
The parties have agreed that prior to completion of the Transaction, (a) within 60 days of the LOI, the Target will complete a non-brokered private placement of 8,000,000 common shares at a price of $0.15 per share for total proceeds of $1,200,000, and (b) within 45 days of the LOI, subject to the approval of the CSE, Skyledger will complete a non-brokered private placement of 2,000,000 common shares at a price of $0.15 per share for total proceeds of $300,000.
Concurrent with the completion of the Transaction, Skyledger expects to complete a private placement of units (the "Units") of the Company for gross proceeds of $5,000,000 (the "Concurrent Private Placement"). Each Unit is expected to be issued at a price of $0.30 and consist of one common share of the Company and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole common share purchase warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will be exercisable into one common share of Skyledger at a price of $0.50 for three years. The proceeds of the Concurrent Private Placement will be used for exploration and related expenditures respecting the Properties and working capital purposes. Closing of the Concurrent Private Placement is conditional upon completion of the Transaction. Further details regarding the Concurrent Private Placement will be included in a subsequent news release once additional details become available.
Conditions of Closing
Completion of the Transaction will be subject to certain conditions, including but not limited to: (a) the receipt of all necessary approvals of the boards of directors of Skyledger and the Vendor; (b) the receipt of approval of the shareholders of Skyledger in accordance with applicable laws, including the rules of the CSE; (c) the receipt of all required consents and approvals, including without limitation, approval of the Transaction by the CSE; (d) Skyledger satisfying the initial listing requirements set by the CSE for a mining issuer; (e) the completion by Skyledger of the Transaction Financing; and (f) the completion of satisfactory mutual due diligence.
The LOI may be terminated by either party if (a) they mutually agree; or (b) the definitive agreement with respect to the Transaction has not been executed on or before November 17, 2020 or such later date as may be agreed to by the parties.
Board of Directors and Management
