Inca One Gold Corp. Announces Equity Financing and Proposed Share Consolidation
VANCOUVER, BC – July 8, 2016 - INCA ONE GOLD CORP. (TSX.V: IO) (“Inca One” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it is undertaking a non-brokered private placement for gross proceeds of up to $4,000,000 (the “Private Placement” or “Offering”). Concurrent with the Private Placement, the Company will also conduct a five to one share consolidation of its common shares (the “Consolidation”).
Inca One will undertake, on a post-Consolidation basis, a non-brokered private placement of up to 16,000,000 units (the “Units”) of the Company at a subscription price of $0.25 per Unit, for gross proceeds of up to $4,000,000. Each Unit will be comprised of one common share (a “Common Share”) and one half of a transferable Common Share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”). Each whole Warrant will be exercisable to purchase an additional common share (a “Warrant Share”) of the Company at a post-Consolidation exercise price of $0.40 for a period of 36 months from the closing date (“Placement Closing Date”). The Private Placement will feature an acceleration clause that will trigger the exercise of the Warrants in the event the closing price of Company's common shares on the TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV”) is higher than $0.60 post-Consolidation for a period of 15 consecutive trading days.
The proceeds from the Offering will be used for purchases of mineral, inventory supplies and materials, select debt repayments, and general working capital requirements. All securities issued in connection with the Private Placement will be subject to a statutory hold period of 4 months plus a day from the Placement Closing Date in accordance with applicable securities legislation.
In connection with the Offering the Company may pay a finder’s fee to eligible finders up to 8% cash and 8% warrants of the gross proceeds received, as applicable. Closing of the Private Placement, is subject to the execution of definitive transaction documents and the approval of the TSXV. The Company will no longer be pursuing the convertible debenture offering announced on April 19, 2016.
The securities described herein have not been registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States unless registered under the Act or unless an exemption from registration is available.
Debt Restructuring and Settlement
As a condition of the Private Placement, the Company will be finalizing the debt restructuring and settlement agreements as previously announced in the press release dated April 19, 2016. Certain amendments to the settlement terms will be enacted to reflect select adjustments to the capital structure arising from the Private Placement and Consolidation.
In connection with the Private Placement Inca One has received Board approval for the Consolidation of its issued and outstanding Common Shares on the basis of one post-consolidation share for every five pre-consolidation shares. The Consolidation is subject to the approval of the TSXV.
About Inca One
Inca One is a Canadian-based mineral processing company with a gold milling facility in Peru, servicing government-permitted, small-scale miners. As part of the terms of the original purchase agreement for the Chala, Peru processing facility, Inca One has an agreement between its wholly owned subsidiary, Chala One SAC, and the seller and initial permit applicant, to operate under the umbrella of formalization until the successful completion of all the environmental and operating permits. Peru, a highly mineral-rich country, is one of the world's top producers of gold, silver, copper and zinc, with substantial production coming from small scale miners who need government permitted milling facilities to process their mineral (such as the Company's Chala Plant).
