THIS RELEASE IS NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWS WIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES
AZINCOURT URANIUM INC. ("Azincourt" or "the Company") (TSX VENTURE:AAZ), announces that it intends to undertake a brokered private placement (the "Offering") with a syndicate of agents led by Secutor Capital Management (collectively, the "Agents") to raise aggregate gross proceeds of up to $2,750,000 on a best efforts basis. The Offering will consist of the issuance of up to 5,833,333 flow-through shares at a price of C$0.30 per flow-through share ($1,750,000) and up to 3,703,703 units (the "Units") at a price of C$0.27 per unit ($1,000,000).
Each Unit will consist of one common share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole common share purchase warrant, a "Warrant"). Each whole Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one additional common share for a period of eighteen (18) months at a price of C$0.40 per common share.
The net proceeds of the private placement will be used to advance the Company's projects in Canada and Peru, and for general working capital purposes.
The Company has granted the Agents an option to sell a number of additional Units equal to 20% of the number of Units sold under the Offering and a number of additional Flow-Through Shares equal to 20% of the number of Flow-Through Shares sold under the Offering, on the same terms as set forth above solely to cover over-allotments, if any.
In connection with the Offering, subject to Exchange approval, the Company will pay to the Agents a cash fee equal to 8% of the gross proceeds raised under the Offering, and will issue non-transferable warrants (the "Broker's Warrants") equal to 8% of the total number of the Flow-Through Shares and Units sold under the Offering. Each Broker's Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one common share of the Company at a price of C$0.30 for a period of 18 months following closing date.
Closing of the Offering is expected on or about March 28, 2014, and is subject to receipt of TSX Venture Exchange acceptance.
