CALGARY, ALBERTA–(Marketwired – July 10, 2014) – Tuscany Energy Ltd. (“Tuscany” or the “Corporation“) (TSX VENTURE:TUS) is pleased to announce that it has filed and received a receipt for its final short form prospectus in connection with its previously announced public offering of units (“Units“) and common shares (“Common Shares“) of the Corporation to be issued on a flow-through basis in respect of Canadian development expenses (the “CDE FT Shares“) at a price of $0.40 per Unit or CDE FT Share, as applicable. The Corporation is also pleased to announce that the size of the offering has been increased to an aggregate of 7,500,000 Units or CDE FT Shares or a combination thereof, for aggregate gross proceeds of up to $3.0 million (the “Offering“).
Each Unit is comprised of one Common Share and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant (“Warrants“). Acumen Capital Finance Partners Limited, as lead agent, and Industrial Alliances Securities Inc. and Richardson GMP Limited are acting as agents under the Offering.
The net proceeds of the Offering will be used to temporarily reduce bank indebtedness thereby freeing up additional borrowing capacity which is expected to be used to partially fund the Corporation’s ongoing capital expenditure program, with proceeds from the issuance of the CDE FT Shares used to incur eligible Canadian development expenditures that will be renounced to subscribers effective on or before December 31, 2014.
This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of any offer to purchase the Units or CDE FT Shares in the United States. The Common Shares and Warrants comprising the Units and the CDE FT Shares have not been and will not be registered under the U.S. Securities Act and may not be offered or sold in the United States.
Tuscany is a heavy oil development and production company with reserves, land holdings and production in Canada. The Company’s principal focus is the exploitation of oil resources in Alberta and Saskatchewan through horizontal drilling. The majority of the Company’s revenue is generated from oil sales in Saskatchewan.
ADVISORY: This press release contains forward looking statements. More particularly, this press release contains statements concerning the anticipated closing date of the Offering and the anticipated use of the net proceeds of the Offering. Although Tuscany believes that the expectations reflected in these forward looking statements are reasonable, undue reliance should not be placed on them because Tuscany can give no assurance that they will prove to be correct. Since forward looking statements address future events and conditions, by their very nature they involve inherent risks and uncertainties. The closing of the Offering could be delayed if Tuscany is not able to obtain the necessary regulatory and stock exchange approvals on the timelines it has planned. The Offering will not be completed at all if these approvals are not obtained or some other condition to the closing is not satisfied. Accordingly, there is a risk that the Offering will not be completed within the anticipated time or at all. The intended use of the net proceeds of the Offering by Tuscany might change if the board of directors of Tuscany determines that it would be in the best interests of Tuscany to deploy the proceeds for some other purpose.
The forward looking statements contained in this press release are made as of the date hereof and Tuscany undertakes no obligations to update publicly or revise any forward looking statements or information, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, unless so required by applicable securities laws.
NEITHER THE TSX VENTURE EXCHANGE NOR ITS REGULATION SERVICES PROVIDER (AS THAT TERM IS DEFINED IN THE POLICIES OF THE TSX VENTURE EXCHANGE) ACCEPTS RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE ADEQUACY OR ACCURACY OF THIS RELEASE.
