TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - June 28, 2017) -


Hampton Financial Corporation ("Hampton" or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:HFC) is pleased to announce that it has closed a first tranche of its previously announced offering (the "Offering"). The first tranche of the Offering represents aggregate gross proceeds of CDN$2,009,950. M Partners Inc. (the "Agent") is acting as agent in connection with the Offering, for which a final long form prospectus ("Prospectus") was filed on May 30, 2017, and the Corporation obtained a receipt on May 31, 2017, for the jurisdictions of Ontario, British Columbia, Alberta and Nova Scotia.

At the closing of the first tranche of the Offering (the "Closing"), the Corporation issued 200,995 Units at a price of CDN$10.00 per Unit, with each Unit consisting of one class A preferred share in the capital of the Corporation (each, a "Preferred Share") and one subordinate voting share purchase warrant (each, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder, upon the exercise thereof, to purchase one subordinate voting share in the capital of the Corporation (each, a "Warrant Share") at the price of CDN$1.00 per Warrant Share for a period of 60 months following the date of the Closing.

The Units are continuing to be marketed with a view to completing a second and final tranche.

In consideration for services rendered by the Agent in connection with the Offering, the Agent will be paid a commission equal to 5% of the aggregate gross proceeds of the Offering. The Corporation has also granted the Agent an option to offer for sale additional Units to cover over-allotments, if any, and for market stabilization purposes (the "Over-Allotment Option"), which will allow the Agent to arrange for purchasers to acquire up to an additional 15% of the number of Units initially sold under the Offering. The Over-Allotment Option is exercisable by the Agent, in whole or in part, for a period of 30 days following the final closing of the Offering.
