Boxxer announces proposed Private Placement with Key Venture Capital Inc.
\NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES\
CALGARY, Jan. 30, 2014 /CNW/ - Boxxer Gold Corp. (BXX-TSXV/OTC-BXXRF) (the "Company, or Boxxer"), is pleased to announce that it has entered into a non-binding term sheet (the "Term Sheet") with Key Venture Capital Inc. (KVC.H) ("Key"), a capital pool company, in relation to a private placement (the "Private Placement"). Pursuant to the Term Sheet, Key will participate in the Private Placement by purchasing an aggregate of approximately $130,000 of units of Boxxer (the "Boxxer Units") at a price of $0.05 per Boxxer Unit. Key intends that the Private Placement and subsequent Distribution and Dissolution (as described below) will constitute Key's "Qualifying Transaction" pursuant to Policy 2.4 of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV"). Pursuant to the Private Placement, each Boxxer Unit shall consist of one common share and one non-transferable share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each Warrant shall be exercisable for five years at $0.05 per share and is subject to accelerated expiry provisions such that if at any time after the completion of the Private Placement the closing price of the common shares of Boxxer on the TSXV is at least $0.10 per share for 15 consecutive days, Boxxer may give notice that each warrant will expire 15 business days from the date of providing such notice. Boxxer does not anticipate any new Control Person (as such term is defined in TSXV policies) will be created in connection with the Private Placement. Key's Qualifying Transaction is an arm's length transaction for the purposes of the TSXV.
Pursuant to the Term Sheet, Key will invest all of its available cash reserves in the Private Placement, except for certain funds required to complete the Qualifying Transaction of Key, including the Distribution and Dissolution, such that it is currently anticipated that the aggregate funds available for the Private Placement from Key will be approximately $130,000 in cash. Following the completion of the Private Placement, Key will undertake the necessary steps to allow it to distribute the Boxxer Units pro rata to its shareholders (the "Distribution") and thereafter to be delisted and dissolved (the "Dissolution"). It is anticipated that all Boxxer Units distributed to Key's shareholders will be subject to a statutory four month hold period. Boxxer and Key anticipate completing the Private Placement shortly following receipt of the necessary Key shareholder approvals (discussed below), after which Key will commence the Distribution and the Dissolution.
The closing of the proposed Qualifying Transaction of Key, and as a result, the Private Placement, are subject to a number of conditions, including but not limited to, the receipt of all requisite regulatory approvals, including final TSXV acceptance of the Key Qualifying Transaction, and the approval of Key's shareholders. The TSXV's final acceptance of the Qualifying Transaction will be conditional upon, among other things, the receipt of majority of minority Key shareholder approval of the Qualifying Transaction, Key shareholder approval of the Distribution by special resolution and Key shareholder approval of the Dissolution by an ordinary resolution. For this purpose, Key will schedule an annual general and special meeting of its shareholders. The proposed Qualified Transaction cannot close until the required Key shareholder approvals are obtained. There can be no assurance that the Key Qualifying Transaction, and as a result, the Private Placement, will be completed as proposed or at all.
