VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 6, 2012) -
NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES
Druk Capital Partners Inc. ("Druk" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:DRU.P), a capital pool company, announces that, subject to TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") approval, it proposes to advance to Alexis Minerals Corporation ("Alexis") $225,000 as a secured interest bearing loan (the "Loan"). The Loan is secured by a lien on certain real property owned by Alexis located in Val-d'Or. The Loan will be used by Alexis to fund its ongoing operations related to the Rouyn-Noranda assets to be acquired by the Company, pending completion of the Company's qualifying transaction (the "Proposed Transaction"), which is the proposed acquisition of 100% of the rights, titles and interests held by Alexis in the Rouyn-Noranda base/precious metal camp, excluding those claims that comprise Alexis' Lac Pelletier gold property. The Loan will not be advanced to Alexis until at least 15 days from dissemination of this news release and the Company has received confirmation of Exchange acceptance for the Loan.
Further to the Company's news release of May 18, 2012, the Company announces that it has revised the terms of its non-brokered private placement (the "Concurrent Financing"), which the Company is undertaking in conjunction with the Proposed Transaction. The Company announces that it intends to issue up to 26,000,000 subscription receipts (the "Subscription Receipts") at a price of $0.25 per Subscription Receipt for gross proceeds of up to $6,500,000. Each Subscription Receipt will be convertible into one common share of the Company (a "Share"). Subject to approval by Alexis, the Company may also issue up to an additional 2,600,000 Subscription Receipts at a price of $0.25 per Subscription Receipt for gross proceeds of up to $650,000.
The gross proceeds from the sale of the Subscription Receipts will be held in escrow pending satisfaction of the escrow release conditions pertaining to the Proposed Transaction. The escrow release conditions include the receipt of all regulatory approvals required to complete the Proposed Transaction and the Company and Alexis agreeing that all conditions under the definitive agreement have been satisfied. Upon satisfaction of the escrow release conditions, the Subscription Receipts will be deemed to be exercised into Shares, and the Company will be entitled to the subscription proceeds from the Concurrent Financing. If the escrow release conditions are not satisfied on or before October 31, 2012, then the subscription proceeds from the Concurrent Financing will be returned to the subscribers of the Subscription Receipts.
The closing of the Concurrent Financing is scheduled to occur on or about June 25, 2012 or such other date as the Company may determine. The Subscription Receipts will be subject to a four-month hold period commencing on the closing date of the Concurrent Financing. The Concurrent Financing is subject to receipt of all necessary approvals, including approval from the Exchange and all other applicable securities regulatory approvals.
