Montreal, Quebec–(Newsfile Corp. – February 11, 2021) – Manganese X Energy Corp. (TSXV: MN.WT) (FSE: 9SC2) (OTC Pink: MNXXF) (“Manganese” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce it has completed a non-brokered private placement offering (the “Offering“) for gross proceeds of $1,636,210 through the issuance of up to 4,958,212 units (each, a “Unit“) at a price of $0.33 per Unit.
Each Unit of the Offering is comprised of one common share in the capital of the Company (each, a “Common Share“) and one common share purchase warrant (each, a “Warrant“) being exercisable into one Common Share at a price of $0.44 per share until February 11, 2023. In connection with the Offering, the Company paid cash fees of $29,482.20 and issued 89,340 finder’s warrants, which each entitle the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share at a price of $0.44 until February 11, 2023 to a registered finder. The net proceeds received by the Company from the Offering are expected to be used for business development and general working capital purposes.
All securities issued pursuant to the Offering will be subject to a statutory hold period expiring four months and one day after closing of the Offering. Completion of the Offering is subject to a number of conditions, including, without limitation, receipt of all regulatory approvals, including approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “Exchange“). None of the securities issued in the Offering will be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “1933 Act“), and none of them may be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the 1933 Act. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of the securities in any state where such offer, solicitation, or sale would be unlawful.
The Offering constituted a “related party transaction” as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101“) as certain insiders of the Corporation subscribed for an aggregate of 165,909 Units pursuant to the Offering. The Corporation is relying on the exemptions from the valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61- 101 contained in sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101, as the fair market value of the participation in the Offering by insiders does not exceed 25% of the market capitalization of the Corporation, as determined in accordance with MI 61-101. The Corporation did not file a material change report in respect of the related party transaction at least 21 days before the closing of the Offering, which the Corporation deems reasonable in the circumstances so as to be able to avail itself of the proceeds of the Offering in an expeditious manner.
