Vancouver, British Columbia-based Temas Resources Corp, a titanium and vanadium mining exploration and development company, has secured C$5 million in equity financing. The investor was Crescita Capital.
VANCOUVER, British Columbia–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Temas Resources Corp. (“The Company”, “Temas Resources”, CSE: TMAS, OTCQB: TMASF), a publicly traded company focused on the advancement of mineral independence within stable, mining-friendly jurisdictions, announced today it has closed the previously announced institutional funding of $5 million (the “Equity Investment Facility”) from Crescita Capital.
“We are very pleased to be receiving this level of institutional backing so early in the development of Temas Resources’ business plan,” said Michael Dehn, CEO. “With this equity investment Temas Resources’ strategic vision and mission pursuit are being verified by institutional investors.”
The Equity Investment Facility is for an aggregate amount of CAD$5 million and Temas Resources will have three years to utilize the funding to expand and develop its assets. In addition, Temas may use the Equity Investment Facility as security, with the consent of Crescita Capital, to secure additional financing avenues.
“This Equity Investment Facility with Crescita Capital will provide Temas Resources with the capital necessary to allow us to aggressively pursue the exploration and development of Temas Resources properties,” Michael Dehn continued. “This confirmation gives us great confidence in our ability to get the La Blache property through the feasibility stage.”
Temas Resources can draw down funds from the $5 million Equity Investment Facility from time to time during the three year term at Temas Resources’ discretion by providing a notice to Crescita Capital (“Drawdown Notice”), and in return for each Drawdown Notice funded by Crescita Capital, Temas Resources will allot and issue fully paid shares to Crescita Capital (each, a “Private Placement”). The shares issued in connection with any Private Placement will be priced at the higher of (i) the floor price set by Temas Resources and (ii) 90% of the average closing bid price resulting from the following ten days of trading after the Drawdown Notice (“Pricing Period”).
The Drawdown Notice amount requested by Temas Resources cannot exceed 700% of the average daily trading volume of the Pricing Period.
The Company paid a 3% commission in shares and issued warrants equal to 8% of the outstanding shares of Temas Resources (together, the “Commitment Fee”), in both cases at the price and on the terms previously announced in our news release dated July 7, 2020.
