VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Aug. 11, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Novo Resources Corp. (“Novo” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: NVO; OTCQX: NSRPF) is pleased to announce that due to demand from investors, it has increased the size of the previously announced non-brokered private placement of subscription receipts (“Subscription Receipts”) of the Company, from C$3 million to C$5 million (the “Increased Non-Brokered Offering”). The Increased Non-Brokered Offering is being undertaken in conjunction with Novo’s planned acquisition of Millennium Minerals Limited (the “Acquisition”) (please refer to the Company’s news releases dated August 4, 2020 and August 5, 2020 for further details).
Under the Increased Non-Brokered Offering, the Company may issue up to 1,538,461 Subscription Receipts at a price of C$3.25 per Subscription Receipt for gross proceeds of up to C$5 million (up to approximately US$3.7 million). Finder’s fees may be payable with respect to subscriptions under the Increased Non-Brokered Offering.
Together with the previously upsized brokered private placement to raise gross proceeds of C$42.5 million (the “Brokered Offering”) (see the Company’s news release of August 4, 2020 and August 5, 2020), the Company may issue up to an aggregate 14,615,384 Subscription Receipts at a price of C$3.25 per Subscription Receipt for aggregate gross proceeds of up to C$47.5 million (up to approximately US$35.4 million), excluding any subscription receipts that may be issued pursuant to a 20% over-allotment option granted to the brokered private placement agents.
The net proceeds from the Brokered Offering and the Increased Non-Brokered Offering will be used to fund the Acquisition, for capital expenditures relating to the restart of Millennium Minerals Limited’s infrastructure, and for general corporate working capital purposes related thereto.
The Brokered Offering and the Increased Non-Brokered Offering are subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, receipt of TSX Venture Exchange and any other necessary approvals, and are expected to close later this month.
