CALGARY, ALBERTA–(Marketwired – June 27, 2014) – PanTerra Resource Corp. (“PanTerra” or the “Corporation“) (TSX VENTURE:PRC) is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced bought deal financing of subscription receipts of the Corporation (the “Subscription Receipts“) with a syndicate of underwriters co-led by Desjardins Capital Markets and TD Securities Inc. (together, the “Co-Lead Underwriters“) and including Raymond James Ltd., Beacon Securities Limited, Haywood Securities Inc., CIBC World Markets Inc. and Clarus Securities Inc., whereby the Corporation issued 500,000,000 Subscription Receipts at a price of $0.26 per Subscription Receipt for aggregate gross proceeds of $130.0 million (the “Offering“). The gross proceeds from the Offering will be held in escrow and will be released to the Corporation upon completion of its $120 million acquisition of certain natural gas assets (the “Acquisition“), as described in further detail below. The Acquisition is currently anticipated to close on or about July 31, 2014. For further information regarding the Acquisition, please see the press release of the Corporation dated June 12, 2014.
The Subscription Receipts were issued pursuant to a subscription receipt agreement (the “Subscription Receipt Agreement“) between the Corporation, the Co-Lead Underwriters and a trust company, as escrow agent. Pursuant to the Subscription Receipt Agreement, the gross proceeds from the Offering will be held in escrow pending delivery of notice (the “Release Notice“) of all conditions to the completion of the Acquisition (other than the payment of the purchase price) being met (the “Escrow Release Conditions“). If: (i) all conditions to the completion of the Acquisition (other than the payment of the purchase price) are not met on or before 5:00 p.m. (Calgary time) on August 15, 2014; (ii) the purchase and sale agreement dated June 11, 2014 providing for the Acquisition is terminated at an earlier time; or (iii) the Corporation advises the Co-Lead Underwriters, or announces to the public, that it does not intend to proceed with the Acquisition, holders of Subscription Receipts will receive a cash amount equal to the offering price of the Subscription Receipts and any interest that was earned thereon during the term of escrow, less any applicable withholding taxes.
Each Subscription Receipt will entitle the holder thereof to receive one common share of the Corporation (a “Common Share“), without any further payment or action on the part of the holder, upon the Escrow Release Conditions having been satisfied and the earlier of: (i) four months and a day after the closing of the Offering, being October 28, 2014; and (ii) upon the issuance of a final passport decision document evidencing a receipt on behalf of each of the securities regulatory authorities in each of the provinces of Canada in which Subscription Receipts were sold (the “Qualifying Provinces“), pursuant to Multilateral Instrument 11-102 – Passport System (the “Final Receipt“) for a final prospectus (the “Prospectus“) qualifying the Common Shares underlying the Subscription Receipts.
The Corporation has agreed to use its reasonable commercial efforts to file the Prospectus qualifying the Common Shares to be issued upon the exercise of the Subscription Receipts in each of the Qualifying Provinces and obtain the Final Receipt within 30 days from the date of delivery of the Release Notice.
The Offering is subject to the final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV“).
