Mukuba Announces Closing of Convertible Debenture Offering
TORONTO, Aug. 28, 2012 /CNW/ - Mukuba Resources Limited (TSX-V:MKU) ("Mukuba" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has closed a private placement of convertible debentures in the aggregate principal amount of $250,000 due to mature on August 27, 2013 (the "Debentures") for gross proceeds of $250,000.
The Debentures are part of a larger private placement financing of the Company (the "Private Placement") previously announced on July 12, 2012. The Private Placement will comprise a maximum of 12,500,000 units (the "Units") at a subscription price of $0.12 per Unit. Each Unit will consist of one common share and one common share purchase warrant of the Company (each a "Warrant") entitling the holder thereof, during a period of 24 months from the date of closing of the Private Placement (the "Closing"), to purchase one of the Company's common shares at an exercise price of $0.16 per common share.
The Private Placement is conditional upon a consolidation of the Company's outstanding common shares at a ratio of four pre-consolidation common shares for one post-consolidation common share (the "Consolidation). The Consolidation requires approval by the holders of the Company's common shares at a meeting of shareholders expected to occur on August 30, 2012. All references to Units are on a post-Consolidation basis unless otherwise identified.
The Debentures are convertible into 2,083,333 Units upon Closing of the Private Placement. These Units are included in the 12,500,000 Units described above. In the event that the Consolidation and the Private Placement are not completed by December 27, 2012, the Debentures will bear interest at a rate of 10% effective from the date of issue and be convertible into shares at a rate of $0.10 per common share on a pre-Consolidation basis.
Completion of the Private Placement is subject to the receipt of all required regulatory and shareholder approvals, including acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange.
