WARABA GOLD ANNOUNCES CLOSING OF NON-BROKERED PRIVATE PLACEMENT

Waraba Gold Limited is pleased to announce the closing of a non-brokered private placement.

TORONTO, ON, CANADA, November 19, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — WARABA GOLD ANNOUNCES CLOSING OF NON-BROKERED PRIVATE PLACEMENT

Waraba Gold Limited (CSE:WBGD) (the “Corporation”) is pleased to announce the closing of a non-brokered private placement through the issuance of 8,500,000 units ("Units") at a price of $0.20 per Unit for gross proceeds of $1,700,000 (the "Offering"). The Company intends to use the proceeds of the Offering for general working capital and business development purposes.

Each Unit is comprised of one common share ("Common Share") of the Corporation and one Common Share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to acquire one (1) additional Common Share at a price of $1.00 per Common Share for 12 months following the closing date of the Private Placement. In the event that the daily volume weighted average trading price (or closing bid price on days when there are no trades) of the Common Shares on the Canadian Securities Exchange exceeds $1.00 for a minimum of 30 consecutive trading days, the Corporation may provide written notice requiring holders to exercise such Warrants within 30 days following the date of issuance of such written notice.

All securities issued in connection with the Offering will be subject to a hold period of four months plus a day from the date of issuance and the resale rules of applicable securities legislation.

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 427,125 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.

This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy, and there shall be no sale or exchange of the Corporation's securities in any jurisdiction in which the offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to the registration or qualification under applicable securities laws.
