CR Capital Corp. Completes $47,500 Non-Brokered Private Placement


TORONTO, Oct. 09, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — CR Capital Corp. (TSX-V: CIT) (“CR Capital”) announces it has completed a non-brokered private placement for aggregate gross proceeds of $47,500 (the “Offering”). The Offering consisted of the sale of 950,000 flow through units (the “FT Units”) at a price of $0.05 per FT Unit.

Each FT Unit consists of one (1) common share in the capital stock of CR Capital that is a “flow-through share” (a “FT Share”) within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada) (the “Act”) and one common share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”). Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one common share in the capital of CR Capital at a price of $0.075 per common share until the date which is two (2) years following the closing date of the Offering, whereupon the Warrants will expire.

CR Capital intends to use the net proceeds from the Offering to fund “Canadian exploration expenses” (within the meaning of the Act) on its properties. CR Capital will ensure that the proceeds received from the FT Units sold will be used to incur expenses which qualify as Canadian Exploration Expenses and Flow-Through Mining Expenditures for purposes of the Income Tax Act and will renounce such expenses with an effective date of no later than December 31, 2020.

The securities issued and issuable pursuant to the Offering will be subject to a four month and one day statutory hold period.

The securities offered have not been registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “U.S. Securities Act”), or applicable state securities laws, and may not be offered or sold to persons in the United States absent registration or an exemption from such registration requirements. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of the securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.

Related Party Transactions

Insiders of CR Capital have subscribed for 350,000 FT Units pursuant to the Offering. Any issuance of FT Units to an insider (“Insider Participation”) will be considered to be a “related party transaction” (within the meaning of TSX Venture Exchange Policy 5.9 and Multilateral Instrument 61-101 (“MI 61-101”)). The Company has relied on exemptions from the “formal valuation” and “minority approval” requirements of MI 61-101 in respect of any Insider Participation.
