VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - April 24, 2014) - San Marco Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SMN) ("San Marco" or "the Company") has completed its non-brokered private placement financing announced on March 11, 2014. A total of 8,000,000 units ("Units") were issued at $0.05 per Unit for gross proceeds of $400,000. An insider of the Company acquired 2,760,000 of the Units issued in this financing.
Each Unit consisted of one common share and one non-transferable warrant. Each warrant is exercisable to purchase a further share for three years, at $0.05 within the first year or $0.10 within the second and third years. A finder's fee of $16,590 cash was paid to Haywood Securities Inc., representing 7% of the value of Units purchased by investors introduced by it.
All common shares issued in connection with this financing, including common shares issued on exercise of the warrants, are subject to a four month restricted resale period expiring on August 24, 2014. The warrants expire on April 24, 2017 and have an acceleration provision such that the expiry date can be reduced to 30 calendar days after notice thereof if the closing price of the Company's common shares equals or exceeds $0.20 for 15 consecutive trading days after the expiry of the four-month restricted resale period.
