IsoEnergy, a Vancouver, British Columbia-based uranium exploration and development company, has raised US$6 million in an unsecured convertible debenture. The investor was Queen’s Road Capital Investment, a Hong Kong-based resource investment firm.
VANCOUVER, BC, Aug. 19, 2020 /CNW/ – IsoEnergy Ltd. (“IsoEnergy” or the “Company”) (TSXV: ISO) (OTCQX: ISENF) is pleased to announce that it has closed the previously announced US$6 million private placement of an unsecured convertible debenture (the “Debenture”) with Queen’s Road Capital Investment Ltd. (“QRC”) (TSXV: QRC).
Craig Parry, IsoEnergy’s Chief Executive Officer, commented: “It is with great pleasure that we welcome Queen’s Road Capital as a strategic investor of IsoEnergy and we look forward to working with Warren Gilman and his team as we continue with advanced exploration and resource delineation at Hurricane. Summer drilling at Hurricane is scheduled to commence very soon, and the Company is now fully funded with over C$14.5 million in the treasury.”
The Debenture will be convertible at the holder’s option at a conversion price of C$0.88 into a maximum of 9,206,311 common shares of the Company (with the exact number of common shares to be issued to be based on the exchange rate at the time of conversion).
The Company will be entitled, on or after the third anniversary of the date of issuance of the Debenture, at any time the 20-day VWAP on the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV”) exceeds 130% of the Conversion Price, to redeem the Debenture at par plus accrued and unpaid Interest.
The Debenture will carry an 8.5% coupon (the “Interest”) over a 5-year term and will be convertible at the holder’s option into common shares of the Company at a conversion price of C$0.88, which price will be converted to USD at the time of conversion (the “Conversion Price”). The Interest is payable semi-annually with 6% payable in cash and 2.5% payable in common shares of the Company, subject to TSXV approval, at a price equal to the market price of the Company’s common shares on the TSXV on the day prior to the date such Interest is due.
The Interest can be reduced to 7.5% per annum on the public dissemination by the Company of an economically positive preliminary economic assessment study, at which point the cash component of the Interest will be reduced to 5% per annum.
In connection with the issuance of the Debenture, the Company has issued 219,689 common shares to QRC as an establishment fee. All securities issued in connection with this financing will have a four-month hold period expiring on December 18, 2020.
Including the proceeds from the recently closed non-brokered private placement, IsoEnergy will have approximately C$14.5 million in the treasury. Proceeds from the non-brokered private placement and the Debenture will be used for exploration of the Company’s properties in the Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan, and for general working capital purposes.
