WINNIPEG, May 11 /CNW/ - Donald Benson, President of Nordic Oil and Gas
Ltd. ("the Company" or Nordic"), today announced a new non-brokered
private placement offering (the "Offering") of up to 10,000,000 units
("Units") at a price of $0.10 per Unit for gross proceeds of up to
$1,000,000. Each Unit of the Offering will consist of one Class A
common share of the Company issued as a "flow-through share" within the
meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada) and one-half of one Class A common share purchase warrant (a
"Warrant"). Each whole Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to
purchase one regular Class A common share of the Company at a price of
$0.12 per share for a period of 18 months from the date of issuance.
The securities issued pursuant to the Offering are subject to a
four-month hold period from the date of issuance. The Company
anticipates multiple closings of the Offering in the coming weeks.
Certain finders are expected to assist the Company by introducing
potential subscriber(s) to the Offering and, subject to compliance with
applicable legislation, will be entitled to receive fees equal to up to
10% of the purchase price of the Units sold pursuant to the Offering,
as well as compensation warrants (the "Finder's Warrants") equal to up
to 10% of the number of Units sold pursuant to the Offering. Each
Finder's Warrant shall entitle the holder thereof to purchase one
regular Class A common share of the Company at a price of $0.12 for a
period of 18 months from the date of issuance.
As a result of measures introduced in the 2006 and 2007 budgets, an
individual purchasing flow-through shares could donate them to charity
and was then entitled to claim resource deductions for expenses
renounced by the issuer of the shares as well as a charitable donation
tax credit or deduction, while still benefiting from the capital gains
exemption in respect of the flow-through shares donated. However, the
March 22, 2011 federal budget has proposed to restrict the exemption
from capital gains tax generally available in respect of the donation
of publicly listed securities to registered charities where the
securities donated are flow-through shares. The exemption will be
available only to the extent that capital gains realized on
dispositions of shares of that class exceed the original cost of all
flow-through shares of the class issued to the donor.
"The budget is not expected to pass until sometime in June, so this new
Nordic flow-through offering will be one of the last opportunities for
someone to purchase flow-through shares and gift them to a registered
charity," Mr. Benson stated.
All terms of the Offering are subject to the approval of the TSX Venture
