Azincourt Uranium Inc. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:AAZ), announces that it has closed its private placement (previously announced on March 13, 2014) and raised an aggregate of $1,664,990.
The Company issued an aggregate of 4,302,970 flow-through common shares at $0.30 per share and 1,385,555 non-flow-through units ("Units") at $0.27 per Unit. Each Unit consists of one common share and one-half of one share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional common share on a non-flow-through basis at an exercise price of C$0.40 per share until October 1, 2015.
The private placement was brokered by a syndicate of agents led by Secutor Capital Management Corporation (collectively the "Agents"). The Agents received: (i) an 8% cash commission; and (ii) 455,082 compensation options entitling the Agents to purchase an equivalent number of common shares of the Company on a non-flow-through basis at a price of $0.30 per share until October 1, 2015.
The President and CEO of the Company subscribed for a total of 44,444 Units under the private placement (the "Insider Participation"). The Insider Participation is exempt from the valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101") based on that neither the fair market value of such Insider Participation nor the consideration paid by such person exceeded 25% of the Company's market capitalization. The Company has not filed a material change report 21 days prior to the closing of the private placement as participation of insiders had not been established at that time.
All of the securities issued under the private placement to subscribers and the Agents are subject to statutory and TSX Venture Exchange imposed resale restrictions expiring on August 2, 2014.
The proceeds of the private placement will be used to accelerate the advancement of the Company's exploration and drilling activities on its projects in Canada and Peru and for general working capital purposes.
