THIS RELEASE IS NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES.
Century Energy Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:CEY) ("Century" or the "Company") announces that it intends to proceed with a non-brokered private placement of:
- a minimum of 20,000,000 units of the Company ("Units") and a maximum of 40,000,000 Units, at a price of $0.05 per Unit, for gross proceeds from the sale of Units of a minimum of $1,000,000 and a maximum of $2,000,000. Each Unit will consist of one (1) common share of Century (a "Common Share") and one-half (1/2) of a Common Share purchase warrant of Century ("Warrant"). Each whole Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one (1) Common Share at a price of $0.15 per Common Share, exercisable for a period of twelve (12) months from the date of the closing of the Offering; and
- a minimum of 10,000,000 Common Shares issued on a flow-through basis ("Flow-through Shares") and a maximum of 20,000,000 Flow-through Shares, at a price of $0.10 per Flow-through Share, for gross proceeds from the sale of Flow-Through Shares of a minimum of $1,000,000 and a maximum of $2,000,000
(the above-described proposed issuance and sale by the Company of Units and Flow-through Shares, collectively, the "Offering"), for aggregate gross proceeds of the combined Offering of a minimum of $2,000,000 and a maximum of $4,000,000.
Century may pay a cash commission or finder's fee to qualified non-related parties of up to 7% of the aggregate gross proceeds of the Offering (up to a maximum of $280,000) and that number of non-transferable finder's warrants:
- equal to up to 7% of the number of Units sold in the Offering (up to a maximum of 1,400,000 finder's warrants in respect of the sale of Units (each, a "Finder's Unit Warrant")). Each Finder's Unit Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one (1) Unit at a price of $0.05 per Unit (i.e., the price paid by subscribers for Units), exercisable for a period of twelve (12) months from the date of issuance; and
- equal to up to 7% of the number of Flow-through Shares sold in the Offering (up to a maximum of 1,400,000 finder's warrants in respect of the sale of Flow-through Shares (each, a "Finder's FT Warrant")). Each Finder's FT Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one (1) Common Share issued on a non-flow-through basis at a price of $0.10 per Common Share; exercisable for a period of twelve (12) months from the date of issuance.
The Offering will be conducted in reliance upon certain prospectus and registration exemptions available under applicable securities legislation, and the Units and Flow-through Shares are expected to be offered to "accredited investors" within the meaning of applicable securities legislation or such other qualified persons as the Company may determine. All of the Common Shares issued or issuable pursuant to the Offering, including the Common Shares obtainable upon the exercise of Warrants, Finder's Unit Warrants and Finder's FT Warrants, will be subject to a four-month hold period in Canada from the date of issuance. Although insiders of the Company may participate in the Offering, it is not anticipated that such insiders' participation (if any) will exceed, in the aggregate, 25% of the Offering.
The proceeds received by the Company from the sale of Flow-Through Shares pursuant to the Offering will be utilized to fund the Company's obligations under the Option Agreement relating to mining properties previously announced by Century, and the proceeds received by the Company from the sale of Units pursuant to the Offering will be utilized for general corporate purposes.
Completion of the Offering is subject to the receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals including, but not limited to, the acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange.
