CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Dec. 10, 2013) - Gold Royalties Corporation (TSX VENTURE:GRO) ("Gold Royalties" or "the Corporation") is pleased to announce that it has successfully closed a unit financing (the "Financing") which consisted of 1,960,000 units (the "Gold Royalties Units") at a price of $0.40 per unit for gross proceeds of $784,000.
"We appreciate that the capital markets continue to provide Gold Royalties with additional funding to grow our business. We believe that our emphasis on expanding our gold royalty portfolio in a counter-cyclical manner yields superior long-term rates of return. Notably as our asset class is dilution-free and carried to production, we recognize the common-sense approach of making new gold royalty investments when we can add those acquisitions at low prices of the cycle," stated Ryan Kalt, President and Chief Executive Officer of Gold Royalties.
Gold Royalties anticipates that it will deploy the net proceeds of the Financing to fund its 15th royalty acquisition as announced by way of press release dated October 22, 2013. The Financing was led by Toronto-based Mackie Research Capital Corporation and brings to a successful close the funding announcement made by way of the aforementioned press release.
Each unit issued in the Financing consisted of a common share and a common share warrant exercisable at $0.50 for a period of twenty-four months from date of closing. In association with the Financing, Gold Royalties paid cash commission of 6.5% on certain units and brokers warrants equal to 6.5% on certain units. Gold Royalties paid a 1% corporate finance advisory fee on the gross proceeds of the Financing. An officer/director of Gold Royalties participated in the Financing. The Financing closed December 9, 2013 with an effective date of December 6, 2013 and is subject to final acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV").
