KWG Announces $10 Million Private Placement19 Mar 2010
Montréal, Canada – KWG Resources Inc. (TSX-V: KWG) (“KWG” or the “Company”) announces a proposed non-brokered private placement (the “Private Placement”) of a maximum of $10 million of units of securities of the Company comprised of up to 80,000,000 “flow-through” units (each, an “FT Unit”) at a price of $0.125 per FT Unit, with each FT Unit comprised of one common share of KWG (each, a “Common Share”) to be issued on a “flow-through” basis and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”) exercisable at a price of $0.15 per Warrant to acquire one Common Share for a period of 2 years from the date of the issuance of the Warrant (the “FT Offering”).
The proceeds of the FT Offering will be used for eligible flow-through exploration expenses to be incurred in further assessment of the Big Daddy chromite deposit in the Ring of Fire, as well as data accumulation for railroad engineering studies, and will be renounced for the 2010 taxation year. Two directors of the Company have indicated they will each subscribe for up to 8 million FT Units with the balance of the FT Offering to be subscribed by non-insiders of the Company. The expected participation of the two directors in the Private Placement will constitute a “related party transaction” under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 –Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”). However, the Company expects that it will be exempt from both the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 in connection with the Private Placement because neither the fair market value of the securities to be issued, nor the consideration for such securities, is expected to exceed 25% of the Company’s market capitalization as calculated in accordance with MI 61-101. The Private Placement remains subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
