MELFORT, SK, April 21, 2014 /CNW/ - On March 6, 2014, Hodgins Auctioneers Inc. ("Hodgins" or the "Corporation") (TSXV: HA) announced that it has entered into a conditional agreement with Majesta Resources Inc. ("Majesta") to acquire a 25% undivided interest in a group of nine contiguous mineral claims with a combined total of 39,125 hectares (98,233 acres) ("Majesta Mineral Claims") located 230 km NW of La Ronge and 445 km north of Prince Albert, Saskatchewan.  The two parties have extended the closing date to May 5, 2014.  The TSXV has extended its closing date condition to the approval of the transaction and the raising of $350,000 by non-brokered private placement to May 5, 2014.

Private Placement
The Corporation is seeking to close a non-brokered private placement of up to 7,000,000 units at a price $0.05 per unit for gross proceeds of up to $350,000.  The parties have amended the flow through terms such that six of seven of every common share issued has flow through attributes. Each unit will be comprised of one common share in the capital of Hodgins and one half of one common share purchase warrant.  Each full warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one common share at a price of $0.075 per common share exercisable no later than the date that is one year from the date of issuance of such warrant provided.   All of the securities issued under the private placement will be subject to a four month resale restriction and will contain a legend which will detail the resale restriction.  There is no minimum subscription under the private placement and Hodgins may close the offering in several tranches, however, the private placement must be concluded by May 5, 2014. The proceeds of the private placement will be used to make the claims acquisition.

In connection with this private placement, Hodgins will pay cash finder's fees equal to 8% of the funds raised to eligible finders who introduce subscribers to the private placement and issue one common share and one finder's fee warrant for every 10 units issued to eligible subscribers.  Each finder's fee warrant will be issued to finders on the same terms as the warrants comprising the units.
