TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - May 1, 2014) -
NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES
RED PINE EXPLORATION INC. (TSX VENTURE:RPX) (the "Corporation" or "Red Pine") - Red Pine is pleased to announce that it has closed the short form prospectus offering announced on March 31, 2014 (the "Offering"), pursuant to which Red Pine sold 14,330,000 units (the "Units") of the Corporation at a price of $0.05 per Unit, and 41,519,000 flow-through units (the "Flow-Through Units") of the Corporation at a price of $0.055 per Flow-Through Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of $3,000,045.
The Offering was conducted on a "best efforts" agency basis by Secutor Capital Management Corporation (the "Agent"). In consideration for its services in connection with the Offering, the Agent received a cash commission of approximately $170,930. The Agents also received 3,178,140 broker warrants (the "Broker Warrants"). Each Broker Warrant entitles the Agent to acquire one common share in the capital of the Corporation at a price of $0.055 per share for a period of 36 months from closing of the Offering.
Red Pine intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering to advance the exploration program on its Cayenne mineral property near Timmins, Ontario (the "Cayenne Property"), and for working capital and general corporate purposes. The proceeds from the sale of the FT Units will be used to incur Canadian Exploration Expenses (CEE) within the meaning of that term in the Income Tax Act (Canada) on the Cayenne Property.
Certain insiders of the Corporation have directly and/or indirectly participated in the Offering, acquiring 8,200,000 Units and 8,200,000 FT Units, representing approximately 5% of the Offering. The participation by these insiders in the Offering is considered a "related party transaction" under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 ("MI 61-101") but is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as the fair market value of the transaction, insofar as it involves interested parties, is less than 25% of the Corporation's market capitalization. The Corporation did not file a material change report more than 21 days before the closing of the Offering as required by MI 61-101 as the details of the participation by the insiders in the Offering were settled only recently.
