Camino Increases Private Placement to $7.5M on Strong Institutional Demand
Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - May 3, 2021) - Camino Corporation (TSXV: COR) (OTC: CAMZF) (WKN: A116E1) ("Camino" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it is increasing the size of its previously-announced non-brokered private placement for gross proceeds to up to $7,500,000 (the "Financing"). Proceeds of the Financing will be used to advance exploration at Camino's three copper projects in Peru: the Los Chapitos (IOCG) copper discovery, the Maria Cecilia porphyry complex (subject to the closing of Camino's acquisition of Minera Maria Cecilia Ltd., as announced in the Company's press release issued March 30, 2021), and the Plata Dorada high-grade copper and silver project. The Financing, which was previously announced in the Company's news release on April 29, 2021, is anticipated to be largely subscribed by institutional investors.
"We have had strong support and demand to invest in Camino from new institutions and shareholders as well as our existing shareholder base," said Jay Chmelauskas, CEO and President of Camino. "We are increasing the private placement to accommodate new shareholders and to broaden the investors in our Company, that include new shareholders from Asia. Clearly, the market is beginning to recognize the significant geological systems and discovery potential that Camino plans to drill in 2021 at our copper properties."
The Financing will consist of up to 44,117,647 million units (each, a "Unit") at a price of $0.17 per Unit. Each Unit will consist of one common share in the capital of the Company and half a non-transferable common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, "Warrant"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to acquire an additional common share of the Company at a price of $0.25 per common share for a period of 24 months from the date of issue (which adjusts the Warrant exercise period to 24 months from 18 months as previously announced in the Company's news release dated April 29, 2021). All securities issued in connection with the Financing will be subject to a hold period expiring four months and one day following the date of issue. A finder's fee will be payable on a portion of the Financing, in accordance with the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange. Completion of the Financing is subject to approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
Camino anticipates that certain insiders will acquire securities in the Financing. To the extent such insiders participate in the Financing, any such participation would be considered a "related party transaction" as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101.
Camino's $500,000 private placement to Denham Capital affiliate Stellar Investment Holdings LLC ("Stellar"), as announced in the Company's press release issued March 30, 2021 in connection with the transaction by Camino to purchase the Maria Cecilia porphyry complex from Stellar, will be adjusted to reflect the terms of the Financing as follows, subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange: Camino will issue 2,941,176 Units to Stellar on the same terms as the Financing, each comprised of one common share and one-half of a Warrant.
