Toronto, October 31, 2022 /CNW/ – Baselode Energy Corp. (TSXV: FIND, OTCQB: BSENF) (“Baselode” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with Red Cloud Securities Inc. and PI Financial Corp. to act as co-lead agents and joint bookrunners on behalf of a syndicate of agents (the "Agents") in connection with a best efforts, private placement (the "Offering") for the sale of up to 10,204,082 flow-through units of the Company to be sold to charitable purchasers (each, a “Charity FT Unit”) at a price of C$0.98 per Charity FT Unit (the “Offering Price”) for gross proceeds of up to C$10,000,000.
Each Charity FT Unit will consist of one common share of the Company to be issued as a “flow-through share” within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada) (each, a “FT Share”) and one half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant shall entitle the holder to purchase one common share of the Company (each, a “Warrant Share”) at a price of C$0.90 at any time on or before that date which is 24 months after the closing date of the Offering.
The Agents will have an option, exercisable in full or in part, up to 48 hours prior to the closing of the Offering, to sell up to an additional 2,040,816 Charity Flow-Through Units at the Offering Price for additional gross proceeds of up to C$2,000,000 (the "Agent’s Option").
Proceeds from the sale of FT Shares will be used to incur "Canadian exploration expenses" as defined in subsection 66.1(6) of the Income Tax Act and "flow through mining expenditures" as defined in subsection 127(9) of the Income Tax Act. Such proceeds will be renounced to the subscribers with an effective date not later than December 31, 2022, in the aggregate amount of not less than the total amount of gross proceeds raised from the issue of FT Shares.
The Company intends to use the proceeds raised from the Offering for exploration of the Company’s projects in the Athabasca Basin. The Offering is scheduled to close on or around November 22, 2022 and is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, receipt of all necessary approvals including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. The FT Shares and Warrant Shares will have a hold period ending on the day that is four months and one day following the closing date.
