VANCOUVER, March 10 /PRNewswire/ - Compliance Energy Corporation ("Compliance" or the "Company") is pleased to report that it plans to raise $3,500,150 via the following private placements:
Private Placement of Flow-Through Units
The Company plans a non-brokered private placement to raise gross proceeds of $1,250,000 (the "Flow-Through Financing"). The Company plans to issue 3,125,000 units (each a "Unit") at a price of $0.40 per Unit. Each Unit will consist of one common share of the Company, intended to qualify as a "flow-through share" under the Income Tax Act (Canada), and one-half of one non-flow-through common share purchase warrant, with each whole warrant having a term of 24 months and an exercise price of $0.60 in the first 12 months and $0.75 in second 12 months. The proceeds from the Flow-Through Financing will be utilized to fund the Company's base metal exploration program on Vancouver Island.
In connection with the Flow-Through Financing, the Company will pay a cash finder's fee equal to 6% of the gross proceeds raised in the Flow-Through Financing, and issue finder's options ("Finder's Options"), exercisable to acquire such number of units ("Finder's Units") as is equal to 7% of the number of Units issued in the Flow-Through Financing. The Finder's Options have an exercise price of $0.40 per Finder's Unit and each Finder's Unit has the same attributes as the Units issued in the Flow-Through Financing, except that the shares partly-comprising the Finder's Units will not be issued on a flow-through basis.
Private Placements of Common Shares
The Company also plans a non-brokered private placement of 6,429,000 common shares (the "Non-Flow-Through Financing", collectively with the Flow-Through Financing, the "Financings"). The Non-Flow-Through Financing is non-brokered and the common shares issued in connection therewith are to be issued at a price of $0.35 per common share for aggregate proceeds of $2,250,150. The proceeds from the Non-Flow-Through Financing will be utilized to fund the continued development of Raven Underground Coal Project and for general working capital purposes.
A 7% cash finder's fee and 7% Finder's Options (as described above) will be paid on a portion of the Non-Flow-Through Financing.
The Company expects to close the Non-Flow-Through Financing on March 11, 2011 and the Flow-Through Financing on March 14, 2011.
