TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / November 28, 2019 / Guerrero Ventures Inc. ('Guerrero' or the 'Company') (TSX-V: GV) is pleased to announce that it has closed its private placement of 10,000,000 common shares of the Company (the 'Shares') at a price of $0.10 per Share for gross proceeds of $1,000,000 (the 'Offering'). The proceeds from the Offering will be used for general and administrative purposes. All securities issued under the Offering are subject to a four-month hold period, which will expire March 28, 2020. The Offering is subject to final acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange.
The following 'insiders' of the Company subscribed for Shares under the Offering:
Officer of Issuer and 10% Security Holder
Joseph de la Plante
10% Security Holder
Medalist Capital Limited
10% Security Holder
Certain subscriptions under the Offering are considered to be a 'related party transaction' for purposes of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ('MI 61- 101') and Policy 5.9 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions of the TSX Venture Exchange. Pursuant to MI 61-101, the Company will file a material change report providing disclosure in relation to each 'related party transaction' on SEDAR under Guerrero's issuer profile at www.sedar.com. The Company did not file the material change report more than 21 days before the expected closing date of the Offering as the details of the Offering and the participation therein by each 'related party' of the Company were not settled until shortly prior to the closing of the Offering, and the Company wished to close the Offering on an expedited basis for sound business reasons. The Company is relying on exemptions from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements available under MI 61-101. The Company is exempt from the formal valuation requirement in section 5.4 of MI 61-101 in reliance on sections 5.5(a) and (b) of MI 61-101 as the fair market value of the transaction, insofar as it involves interested parties, is not more than the 25% of the Company's market capitalization, and no securities of the Company are listed or quoted for trading on prescribed stock exchanges or stock markets. Additionally, the Company is exempt from the minority shareholder approval requirement in section 5.6 of MI 61-101 in reliance on section 5.7(a) as the fair market value of the transaction, insofar as it involves interested parties, is not more than the 25% of the Company's market capitalization.
The securities offered have not been registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the 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 State in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
Issuance of Stock Options
The Company also announces that it has granted an aggregate of 2,425,000 stock options to purchase Shares, at an exercise price of $0.20, to certain officers, directors and consultants of the Company pursuant to the stock option plan of the Company. 2,000,000 of the stock options granted will expire five years from the date of grant and the remaining 425,000 stock options granted will expire three years from the date of grant.
