Vancouver, British Columbia – December 15th, 2020 – Eclipse Gold Mining Corp. (“Eclipse”) (TSX.V:EGLD, OTC:EGLPF) announces that, further to its press release dated December 8th, 2020, it has amended the terms of the “best efforts” private placement financing for minimum gross proceeds of $20 million (the “Offering”) being conducted by a syndicate of agents led by Stifel GMP and including Canaccord Genuity Corp., Raymond James Ltd., Beacon Securities Limited, and PI Financial Corp. The Offering is in connection with the proposed plan of arrangement transaction (the “Transaction”) between Northern Vertex Mining Corp. (“Northern Vertex”) and Eclipse that was announced on December 8th, 2020.
Michael G. Allen, President of Eclipse commented, “The $0.50 units will now include a ½ warrant with each full warrant exercisable into a share of the combined company for two years at $0.80. Investors who purchase the subscription receipts will, upon conversion, own shares and warrants of the entity resulting from the combination of Northern Vertex and Eclipse.”
Under the amended terms of the Offering subscribers will purchase subscription receipts (the “Subscription Receipts”) at a price of $0.50 per Subscription Receipt with each Subscription Receipt automatically converting into one divided by 1.09 of an Eclipse unit (the “Eclipse Units”) (for no further consideration and without any further action by the holders thereof) upon the satisfaction of certain escrow release conditions, all of which must occur before March 31, 2021.
The Eclipse Units acquired upon conversion of the Subscription Receipts will be exchanged for Northern Vertex units (the “Northern Vertex Units”) in accordance with the Plan of Arrangement resulting in purchasers of Subscription Receipts receiving one Northern Vertex Unit for each Subscription Receipt purchased in the Offering. Each Northern Vertex Unit will consist of one Northern Vertex common share (a “Northern Vertex Share”) and one half of a Northern Vertex common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant will be exercisable, for a period of two years from the closing of the Offering, into one Northern Vertex Share at a price of $0.80 per Warrant.
The Northern Vertex Shares and the Warrants issued in connection with the closing of the Transaction to former holders of Subscription Receipts will not be subject to any statutory hold period in Canada.
All other terms of the Offering and the Transaction as set out in the December 8th, 2020 press release remain the same.
