Manganese X Announces Private Placement
Montréal, Québec, Canada, February 1, 2021 — Manganese X Energy Corp. (TSXV: MN) (OTC:MNXXF) (FSE: 9SC2) (“Manganese” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce its intention to complete non-brokered private placement offering (the “Offering“) to raise up to $1,650,000 through the issuance of up to 5,000,000 units (each, a “Unit“) at a price of $0.33 per Unit.
Each Unit of the Offering will be 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 for a period of two (2) years from closing.
In connection with the Offering, the Company may pay finder’s fees to certain registered brokerage firms, which fees would be a cash payment equal to 6% of the gross proceeds raised by purchasers introduced by such brokers, and the issuance of non-transferable compensation warrants equal to 6% of the number of Units purchased by purchasers introduced by such brokers. Such compensation warrants will be issued on substantially the same terms and conditions as the Warrants.
The net proceeds received by the Company from the Offering are expected to be used for 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.
Subject to customary closing conditions, including the approval of the Exchange, the Offering is expected to close on or about February 5, 2021. However, there is no assurance that the Company will complete the Offering upon the terms set out above, or at all.
