NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES
THUNDER BAY, ON, February 16, 2021 – Red Metal Resources Ltd. (the “Company” or “Red Metal”) (OTCPINK: RMES) is pleased to announce that the Company held its Annual and Special Meeting of Shareholders (the "Meeting") on February 9, 2021, pursuant to which the following matters were voted upon and approved by 99.9% of the shareholder votes at the Meeting:
- the approval of the Plan of Conversion to change the corporate jurisdiction of the Company from the state of Nevada to British Columbia (the "Continuation");
- the election of five members to the Board of Directors;
- the approval, on an advisory basis, of the say-on-pay proposal every three years;
- the ratification of certain mining royalty agreements entered into by the Company's wholly owned subsidiary; and
- the ratification of Dale Matheson Carr-Hilton Labonte LLP as the Company's independent registered public accounting firm for fiscal 2021.
Following receipt of shareholder approval at the Meeting, the Company completed the Continuation and received a Certificate of Continuation from the British Columbia corporate registry approving the Continuation effective as of February 10, 2021. Further to the Company's news release on December 7, 2020, the Continuation was completed in order to provide the Company with additional flexibility for future capital raising purposes and as a step towards a future listing on a recognized Canadian stock exchange.
Caitlin Jeffs, President and CEO, commented, ''The completion of the continuation is an important milestone on the corporate restructuring path undertaken by us over the past few years and we look forward to taking the next steps toward listing on a recognized stock exchange.''
Private Placement Announcement
The Company is also pleased to announce a non-brokered private placement of subscription receipts (each a "Subscription Receipt") for aggregate gross proceeds of up to CAD$1,000,000 at a price of CAD$0.15 per Subscription Receipt (the "SR Offering"). Each Subscription Receipt will automatically entitle the holder thereof, without payment of any additional consideration and without further action on the part of the holder, to acquire one SR Unit. Until the escrow release conditions (including the listing of the Company's common shares on a recognized stock exchange in Canada) are met in full, the indentures, representing Subscription Receipts, will be held in trust by an escrow agent appointed by the Company. No Subscription Receipts may be exercised by the holders thereof until all escrow release conditions are met in full.
Each SR Unit (an "SR Unit") will consist of one common share of the Company and one common share purchase warrant (each, an "SR Warrant"). Each SR Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase an additional common share of the Company at a price of CAD$0.30 per common share, if exercised during the first year following the closing date of the SR Offering, and at a price of CAD$0.60, if exercised during the second year following closing date of the SR Offering. Pursuant to the terms of the SR Offering, in the event that the Company does not meet the escrow release conditions by September 30, 2021 (or such later date as may be agreed to by the Company), the escrow agent shall return to the holders of the Subscription Receipts an amount equal to the aggregate purchase price paid for the Subscription Receipts held by each holder, and each Subscription Receipt shall be cancelled and be of no further force or effect.
The Company also announces a concurrent offering of up to 6,666,666 units at a price of CAD$0.15 per unit (each a "Unit") for gross proceeds of up to CAD$1,000,000 (the "Unit Offering"). Each Unit will consist of one common share and one common share purchase warrant (the “Warrant”). Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one additional common share of the Company at an exercise price of CAD$0.20 per common share for a period of 24 months from the date of issue. The Warrants are subject to an acceleration clause in the event that the common shares are listed on a recognized stock exchange and trade at a price of CAD$0.30 or greater for 10 consecutive trading days, in which event the Company may notify warrant holders that the Warrants must be exercised within a period of 30 days. The Warrants will automatically expire if the Warrant holders do not exercise them within the accelerated 30 day period.
The Company intends to raise aggregate gross proceeds of CAD$1,000,000 in total either through SR Offering or the Unit Offering or a combination of both. The Units and all underlying securities to be issued pursuant to the SR Offering will be subject to a four-month hold period under applicable Canadian securities laws. The proceeds of the SR Offering and the Unit Offering are expected to be used to advance the Company's flagship Carrizal copper-gold-cobalt property in Atacama, Chile, and general working capital purposes. Finders fees may be paid in connection with the proposed offerings subject to compliance with applicable securities laws. There is no assurance the offerings will be completed as planned or at all.
