Vendome Resources Announces Closing of Its Private Placement Financing

TORONTO, CANADA--(Marketwired - Aug. 3, 2016) - Vendome Resources Corp. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:VDR)(FRANKFURT:9VR) is pleased to announce that, further to its news releases dated June 30, 2016 and July 18 2016, it has completed its non-brokered private placement financing for aggregate gross proceeds of $542,562.46, by issuing 59,008,331 units (the "Units") of the Company at a price of $0.0075 per unit for gross proceeds of $ $442,562.48, and 13,333,331 "flow-through" shares at a price of $0.0075 per share for gross proceeds of $99,999.98 (collectively, the "Private Placement").

Each Unit consists of one common share in the capital of the Company and one half of one common share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant entitles its holder to purchase one additional common share at an exercise price of $0.01 for a period of 3 years from the closing date of the Private Placement.

The Company closed its first tranche of the Private Placement on July 27, 2016 of which the Company issued 21,089,999 Units for gross proceeds of $158,174.99 (the "First Tranche"). The Company closed its final tranche of the Private Placement on August 2, 2016 of which the Company issued 37,918,322 Units for gross proceeds of $284,387.49 and 13,333,331 "flow-through" shares for gross proceeds of $99,999.98 (the "Final Tranche").

Finders' fees consisting of $54,256.25 in cash and 7,234,166 broker warrants ("Broker Warrants") were paid to the finder's in accordance with policies of the TSXV. Each Broker Warrant is convertible into one broker warrant unit (a "BW Unit") at a price of $0.0075 per BW Unit for a period of two years from the date of issuance. Each BW Unit consists of one Share (a "BW Share") of the Company and one-half Warrant of the Company (each whole warrant, a "BW Warrant"). Each BW Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one Share (a "BW Warrant Share") of the Company for a period of 3 years following the date of issuance of the BW Warrants at a price of $0.01 per BW Warrant Share.

The net proceeds from the sale of the Private Placement will be used to finance the Company's working capital requirements.

Completion of the Private Placement is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary approvals, including the approval of the Exchange and the securities regulatory authorities. Due to the fact that the Private Placement was completed by issuing securities at a price lower than $0.05 per security, the Company is required to obtain a waiver from the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange"). In order to obtain the waiver from the Exchange, the Company sought the approval of its shareholders for a consolidation of the Common Shares on a ten to one basis (the "Consolidation") at the upcoming annual general meeting, which is scheduled for September 6, 2016. The Company has received proxy forms from shareholder's holding 53.51% of the issued and outstanding shares of the Company, approving of the Consolidation. The securities issued under the First Tranche are subject to a hold period expiring on November 28, 2016 and the securities issued under the Final Tranche are subject to a hold period expiring on December 3, 2016.
