KWG Announces The Closing Of A Private Placement23 Feb 2010
Montréal, Canada – February 23, 2010 – KWG Resources Inc. (TSX-V: KWG) (“KWG” or the “Company”) announces the closing of a private placement of $35,000 of units of the Company at a price of $0.07 per unit, each comprised of one common share and one-half of a common share purchase warrant. Each full warrant is exercisable at a price of $0.10 to acquire one common share for a period of one year from the closing date. The securities issued are subject to a hold period of four months ending June 23, 2010. The proceeds will be affected to working capital.
The placement was fully subscribed by one director of the Company and therefore is a “related party transaction” under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 –Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”). However, the Company was exempt from both the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-601 in connection with the Private Placement because neither the fair market value of the securities to be issued, nor the consideration for such securities, exceeds 25% of the Company’s market capitalization as calculated in accordance with MI 61-601.
