CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Nov. 3, 2016) -
NOT FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES OR FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES AND DOES NOT CONSTITUTE AN OFFER OF THE SECURITIES DESCRIBED HEREIN.
Jay Richardson, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of Walmer Capital Corp. (TSX VENTURE:WAL.H) (the "Company" or "Walmer"), a capital pool company, is pleased to announce an update on its proposed Qualifying Transaction. Walmer and Globex Mining Enterprises Inc. ("Globex") (TSX:GMX)(OTCQX:GLBXF)(FRANKFURT:G1M have changed the terms of their agreement originally entered into on August 13, 2016 (the "Original Agreement"), as disclosed on August 17, 2016. On October 27, 2016 Walmer and Globex entered into a purchase agreement (the "New Agreement") to complete an arm's length business transaction whereby Walmer will acquire the 100% legal and beneficial interest in the mineral property referred to as the Johan Beetz Feldspar Property located in Johan Beetz/Iles et ilets de Mingan 03 Township, Province of Quebec (the "Property"). The Property, the work done to date and a recommended work program are expected to be the subject of a NI 43-101 Report to be commissioned by Walmer and expected to be available within the coming weeks, at which time a further news release will be disseminated which will contain details concerning the Property.
Summary of the Qualifying Transaction
The Agreement contemplates Walmer owning 100% interest in the Property (the "Proposed Transaction") upon an initial payment of $100,000 (increased from $50,000 in the Original Agreement) and the issuance of 2,000,000 common shares of Walmer (decreased from 3,000,000 common shares in the Original Agreement), at a deemed price of $0.05 per common share, to Globex. The New Agreement removed the work commitment by Walmer to undertake exploration expenditures of at least $1 million on the Property. In addition, a finder's fee of 400,000 common shares, at a deemed price of $0.05 per common share, will be issued to an arm's length finder in relation to the acquisition of the Property, unchanged from the Original Agreement.
Approval of the Proposed Transaction by the shareholders of Walmer is not expected to be required by the Exchange since the Proposed Transaction is an "arm's length transaction" pursuant to the policies of the Exchange.
The common shares of Walmer ("Common Shares") were transferred to the NEX Board of the Exchange in August of 2014 and trading in the Common Shares is expected to remain suspended until the completion of the Proposed Transaction.
The Agreement is subject to the parties' satisfying various other conditions including regulatory approvals. There can be no assurance that the Proposed Transaction will be completed on the terms proposed above or at all. Each of Walmer and Globex shall bear their own costs in respect of the Proposed Transaction.
The Proposed Transaction will be supported by a concurrent non-brokered private placement financing for aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of a minimum of $800,000 (the "Offering"). In that regard, Walmer has amended its engagement with Toronto investment bank First Republic Capital Corporation ("First Republic") as its financial advisor and lead finder. First Republic has commenced discussions with other interested firms and may elect to form a syndicate group. It is currently anticipated that First Republic and certain Walmer principals may invest in the Offering. The Offering is anticipated to be structured as a best efforts private placement comprised of a minimum of 10,000,000 subscription receipts at a price of $0.05 per subscription receipt for minimum proceeds of $500,000, and 6,000,000 "flow-through" shares at a price of $0.05 per share for minimum proceeds of $300,000. Each subscription receipt will, on closing of the Proposed Transaction, convert into one unit of the Company, with each unit comprised of one Common Share and one half of one common share purchase warrant, each whole warrant being exercisable into a full Common Share for a period of 18 months from the closing date of the Offering at a price of $0.10 per share. There can be no assurance that the Offering will be completed in whole or in part. Proceeds from the Offering will be used for exploration, growth, research and development, marketing, and general working capital purposes.
Completion of the Offering 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. All securities issued by the Company in connection with the Offering will be subject to a statutory four month hold period.

Prior to entering into the Agreement, Walmer did not carry on any active business activity other than reviewing potential transactions that would qualify as Walmer's Qualifying Transaction.
