NOT FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES OR FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES
Cap-Ex Ventures Ltd. ("Cap-Ex") (TSX VENTURE:CEV)(OTCQX:CPXVF)(FRANKFURT:XOV) is pleased to announce that it has closed the second tranche of its non-brokered private placement financing through the sale of 1,180,213 common shares on a flow-through basis (the "Flow-Through Common Shares") at a price of $0.35 per Flow-Through Common Share and 2,966,942 units (the "Units") at a price of $0.32 per Unit, for gross proceeds to Cap-Ex of approximately $1.36 million. Each Unit is comprised of one common share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one common share of Cap-Ex at an exercise price of $0.40 for a period of 24 months from the date of issue. In the aggregate, the two tranches of the non-brokered private placement have resulted in gross proceeds to Cap-Ex of approximately $4.86 million.
Cap-Ex intends to use the proceeds from the sale for continued exploration of Cap-Ex's wholly-owned Block 103 Project in western Labrador and for general corporate purposes. The gross proceeds raised from the issuance of the Flow-Through Shares will be used by Cap-Ex to incur "Canadian exploration expenses" (within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada)) on properties located in Canada. Cap-Ex will renounce such expenses with an effective date of no later than December 31, 2012. Proceeds will also be used to secure necessary infrastructure for the next phase of the exploration program and to contribute to the CN Rail feasibility study (see News Release dated August 10, 2012).
The Flow-Through Common Shares, the common shares comprising the Units, the Warrants and any common shares issuable upon exercise of the Warrants are subject to statutory resale restrictions until February 13, 2013.
Cap-Ex will pay a finders' fee of 6% of the gross proceeds of subscriptions from subscribers who were introduced to the private placement by certain persons who are at arm's length to Cap-Ex as compensation for those persons introducing subscribers to the private placement. Cap-Ex will also grant such finders compensation warrants equal to 6% of the aggregate number of Flow-Through Common Shares and Units purchased by the subscribers introduced to the private placement by such finders. Each compensation warrant will be exercisable into one common share at the price of $0.32 for a period of two years from the closing date.
