CALGARY, Alberta, Jan. 31, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Marksmen Energy Inc. (“Marksmen” or the “Company”) announces that it has closed its previously announced non-brokered financing to replace an outstanding debenture by issuing a non-convertible secured debenture (“Debenture”) in the amount of $1,250,000 and 1,800,000 share purchase warrants of the Company (the “Warrants”). Each whole Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one common share of the Company for $0.24 per share if the Debenture is paid in full by April 30, 2019 and at $0.22 per share thereafter, expiring on December 31, 2019. The Debenture was issued to replace the outstanding $1,250,000 debenture which expired December 31, 2018 and bears interest at 12% per annum and matures on December 31, 2019. The terms of the Debenture, other than the maturity date, are the same as the debenture that is being replaced.
Completion of the financing is subject to regulatory approval, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange Inc. The securities issued are subject to a four month hold period from the date of the closing.
Related Party Participation
The holder of the debenture that is being replaced, an insider of Marksmen, subscribed for the entire Debenture. As an insider of Marksmen subscribed for the Debenture, it is deemed to be a “related party transaction” as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101-Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”).
Neither the Company, nor to the knowledge of the Company after reasonable inquiry, the related party, has knowledge of any material information concerning the Company or its securities that has not been generally disclosed.
The issuance of the Debenture is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 (pursuant to subsections 5.5(c) and 5.7(1)(b)) as it was a distribution of securities for cash and neither the fair market value of the Debenture distributed to, nor the consideration received from, interested parties exceeded $2,500,000.
