October 15, 2020
NOT FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES OR THROUGH UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES
Vancouver, British Columbia (October 15, 2020) – Skarb Exploration Corp. (“Skarb” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce a non-brokered private placement (the “Private Placement”) of up to 30,000,000 units (the “Units”) at a price of C$0.20 per Unit for gross proceeds of up to C$6,000,000. Each Unit will consist of one common share (a “Share”) of the Company and a half of one warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one additional Share at a price of C$0.50 for a period of 24 months from the date of issuance. The Warrants will be subject to an accelerated expiry at the Company’s discretion if the volume weighted average trading price of the Company’s shares is greater than C$0.75 per share per a period of 10 consecutive trading days (the “Acceleration Event”). If the Company gives notice to the holders of the Acceleration Event, the Warrants will expire 30 days thereafter.
The Private Placement is subject to regulatory approval. All securities to be issued pursuant to the Private Placement will be subject to a four-month hold period under applicable Canadian securities laws. Finders’ fees may be payable in connection with the Private Placement in accordance with the policies of the Canadian Securities Exchange.
The size of the Private Placement may be increased at the discretion of the Company, including to allow the Company to satisfy its obligations pursuant to the asset purchase agreement (the “Asset Purchase Agreement”) dated October 9, 2020 with Petratherm Ltd. (“Petratherm”). Pursuant to the Asset Purchase Agreement, Petratherm agreed to, in certain circumstances, subscribe for 20,000,000 Units on the same terms as the Private Placement.
It is intended that the net proceeds from the Private Placement will be used for the exploration and development of its mineral exploration projects and for general working capital.
