NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES
Duncan Park Holdings Corporation (TSX VENTURE:DPH) (OTCQX:DCNPF) announced today that it intends to undertake a non-brokered private placement (the "Private Placement") of up to 20,000,000 common shares at a price of $0.01 per share to raise gross process of up to $200,000.
The pricing of the Private Placement is in reliance on the temporary relief measures established by the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange"). Accordingly, the Private Placement and pricing of the Private Placement require approval of the Exchange having regard to the Exchange's temporary private placement relief measures. The principal purpose of the proceeds of the Private Placement is to pay the final $75,000 property payment to complete the earn-in on the McManus property after having previously made $135,000 in property payments and expended the required $1,200,000 in exploration expenses, and to provide working capital to maintain or preserve Duncan Park's existing operations, activities and assets.
Insiders of the Company are expected to participate in the Private Placement for a minimum of $50,000 of shares.
Duncan Park also announced today that it proposes to undertake a shares-for-debt transaction (the "Shares-for-Debt Transaction") whereby the Company would satisfy, in full, the repayment of certain loans made to the Company by two insiders through the issuance of 4,413,300 common shares. As previously announced, the Company had borrowed an aggregate of $215,000 from the insiders at an interest rate of 5% per annum. The Company proposes to repay the debt of $220,665 (including $5,665 of accrued interest) based on a share price of $0.05 per share.
Completion of the Private Placement and the Shares-for-Debt Transaction remain subject to, among other things, receipt of all requisite approvals, including that of the Exchange.
A material change report in respect of the Private placement and Shares-for-Debt Transaction Loan will be filed on SEDAR in accordance with applicable securities law.
