VANCOUVER, July 8, 2015 /CNW/ - Helio Resource Corp (TSX-V: HRC), ("Helio" or the "Company") is pleased to report that CE Mining Ltd has exercised 6,140,000 share purchase warrants for proceeds to the Company of $307,000. Notably these warrants were exercised at a 100% premium to the market price.
As a result of this exercise CE Mining Ltd now owns 66,140,000 shares representing 29.5% of Helio's issued and outstanding share capital.
CE Mining Ltd still owns an additional 13,860,000 share purchase warrants. If exercised, CE Mining would own 80,000,000 shares representing 33.6% of the issued share capital on a partially diluted basis.
The Company was unable to provide prior notice of the foregoing related party transaction in advance of the closing as several material matters were not concluded until the date of the warrant exercise. The timing of the disclosure of the related party matters was therefore reasonable and necessary in the circumstances.
