VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Feb. 16, 2022 -- Great Quest Fertilizer Ltd (TSXV:GQ) (“Great Quest” or “the Company”) has closed its previously announced non-brokered private placement (the "Private Placement"). Pursuant to the Private Placement, the Company has issued 3,490,000 units of the Company (each, a "Unit"), at a price of $0.05 per Unit, for gross proceeds of $174,500.
Each Unit consists of one common share in the capital of the Company (each a "Share") and one common share purchase warrant (each a “Warrant”). Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one common share in the capital of the Company (a "Warrant Share") at a price of $0.10 per Warrant Share for a period of two years following the date hereof, subject to an acceleration provision whereby in the event that at any time after the expiry of the statutory hold period the Shares trade at $0.20 or higher on the TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV”) for a period of 10 consecutive days, the Company shall have the right to accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants to the date that is 30 days after the Company issues a news release announcing that it has elected to exercise the acceleration right. All of the securities issued pursuant to the Private Placement are subject to a four month and one day hold period from the date of issue.
The net proceeds of the Private Placement will be used for general working capital. In connection with the Private Placement, the Company paid cash finder's fees of $3,500 and issued 70,000 finder's warrants (the "Finder Warrants") to eligible finders. Each Finder Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to acquire one Share at a price of $0.05 for a period of 24 months following the date hereof.
The Private Placement is subject to the final approval of the TSXV.
Certain of the directors and officers of the Company have subscribed for Units pursuant to the Private Placement (the “Insider Participation”). The Insider Participation will be considered to be a “related party transaction” as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 (“MI 61-101”). The Insider Participation is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101.
