In connection with the Offering, Prospero entered into finder's fee agreements with three arm's length finders, Sprott Global Resource Investments, Ltd., Haywood Securities Inc. and Canaccord Genuity Corp. pursuant to which Prospero paid cash finder's fees aggregating a total of $107,400 and issued 249,000 warrants ("Finder's Warrants"). Each Finder's Warrant has the same terms as the Warrants issued under the Offering.
The net proceeds from the Offering will be used by Prospero to advance Prospero's existing project portfolio to drill-ready status, to expand the project portfolio by possible new acquisitions, and for general working capital purposes. Strategic joint ventures will also be sought.
All securities issued in connection with the Offering will be subject to a hold period expiring January 15, 2017.
