/NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES/
CALGARY, Dec. 2, 2013 /CNW/ - Northern Frontier Corp. (TSX-V: FFF) (the "Corporation" or "Northern Frontier") is pleased to announce that it has agreed with Acumen Capital Finance Partners Limited, acting on its own behalf and on behalf of GMP Securities L.P. (collectively, the "Underwriters"), to upsize its previously announced "bought deal" public offering of units of the Corporation (the "Units") to 3,074,000 Units, with each Unit being comprised of one common share of the Corporation (a "Common Share") and one-half of one Common Share Purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"), at a price of $3.50 per Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of $10,759,000 (the "Public Offering"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to acquire one Common Share (a "Warrant Share") at a price of $4.00 per Warrant Share on or before March 27, 2015.
Northern Frontier has also agreed to upsize the over-allotment option granted to the Underwriters (the "Over-Allotment Option") to provide the Underwriters with the option to acquire up to 461,100 additional Units exercisable on, or for a period of 30 days following, the date of closing of the Public Offering to cover over-allotments, if any, and for market stabilization purposes.
The Corporation is also pleased to announce a concurrent non-brokered offering of up to 42,857 Units ("Private Placement Units") on a private placement basis to one or more directors of the Corporation. The Private Placement Units will be issued on the same terms as the Units to be issued in connection with the Public Offering (the "Private Placement").
The net proceeds of the Public Offering and the Private Placement will be used by the Corporation to:
- fulfill its customers' demand for the Corporation's services through the purchase of additional equipment; and
- for general corporate purposes.
The Units issued in connection with the Public Offering will be offered by way of a short form prospectus to be filed in Alberta, British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario and such other provinces and territories (excluding Québec) as the Corporation and the Underwriters may agree. Closing of the Public Offering and the Private Placement is expected to occur on or about December 17, 2013 and is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary approvals including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
