TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 10, 2012) - Advanced Explorations Inc. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:AXI)(FRANKFURT:AE6) announced today that it plans to raise up to $3,360,000 in gross proceeds through a non-brokered, flow-through private placement issuing up to 14,000,000 "flow-through" units ("FT Units") at a price of $0.24 per FT Unit. The proceeds from the sale of FT Units will be used for Canadian Exploration Expenses (within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada)) and will be renounced for the current taxation year. The proceeds are expected to fund further exploration activity on the Company's Anik project and areas outside the option agreements with XinXing Pipes Group Co. Ltd.
Each FT Unit will consist of one "flow-through" common share in the capital of the Company and one-half of one non-transferrable common share purchase warrant (each whole common share purchase warrant, a "FT Unit Warrant"), with each FT Unit Warrant being exercisable to acquire one common share of the Company at a price of $0.40 for a period of 24 months following the closing date of the Offering.
In the event the closing trading price for the common shares of the Company on the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSX-V") is equal to or greater than $0.75 per share for five (5) consecutive trading days occurring any time after four (4) months from the closing date of the Offering, then the Company may, at its option, accelerate the expiry of the Hard Unit Warrants and FT Unit Warrants by giving notice to the holders thereof and in such case the warrants will expire at 4:00 p.m. (Toronto time) on the date which is the earlier of: (i) the 30th day after the date on which such notice is given by the Company; and (ii) the original expiry date.
A finder's fee in shares, cash, warrants or a combination of all may be payable in connection with this placement which will not exceed the maximum allowable under the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange. The offering and finder's fee are subject to completion and execution of appropriate documentation and acceptance for filing by the TSX Venture Exchange.
