Prosperity Goldfields Corp. ("Prosperity" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:PPG) has arranged a brokered private placement (the "Offering") with a syndicate of agents led by Secutor Capital Management and including Jennings Capital Inc. (collectively, the "Agents"). The Offering will consist of the issuance of up to 15,000,000 flow-through units ("Flow-Through Units") and 2,941,176 units ("Units") on a best-efforts basis at a price of 20 cents per Flow-Through Unit and 17 cents per Unit, for aggregate gross proceeds of up to $3.5 million.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering for exploration and drilling activities on the Company's Kiyuk property this winter and for working capital.
Each Flow-Through Unit will consist of one "flow-through share", as defined in subsection 66(15) of the Income Tax Act (Canada) and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Unit will consist of one common share and one-half of one Warrant. Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one common share of the Company (on a non-flow-through basis) at an exercise price of 28 cents until the date which is 18 months following completion of the Offering.
The Company has granted the Agents an option, exercisable at the applicable issue price at any time prior to the closing of the Offering, to purchase that number of additional Flow-Through Units or Units that is equal to 20% of the Flow-Through Units and Units sold pursuant to the Offering, to cover over-allotments, if any.
In connection with the Offering, the Company will pay a cash commission to the Agents in an amount equal to 7 per cent of the gross proceeds of the Offering and issue to the Agents compensation options entitling the Agents to purchase that number of common shares of the Company (on a non-flow-through basis) that is equal to 7 per cent of the number of Flow-Through Units and Units sold pursuant to the Offering, at an exercise price of 20 cents until the date which is 18 months following completion of the Offering.
