LSC Lithium Provides Update on Private Placement Financing and Grants Stock Options

TORONTO, Sept. 15, 2017 /CNW/ - LSC Lithium Corporation ("LSC" or the "Company") (TSXV: LSC) is pleased to announce that, further to its August 16, 2017 news release, it has extended the time to complete its private placement offering (the "Offering") of common shares. The TSX Venture Exchange has granted an extension to the deadline for filing final documents to October 16, 2017 at an offering price of CAD$1.10 or USD$0.91 per common share.

To date, the Company has completed three non-brokered tranches of the Offering, pursuant to which 10,695,718 Common Shares have been issued for aggregate gross proceeds of approximately C$11.8 million. The Company anticipates closing further tranches shortly and has already secured a commitment of US$3 million. The tranches of the Offering were completed on each of August 21, 2017, August 31, 2017, and September 11, 2017. The common shares are subject to resale restrictions under Canadian securities law which were distributed and will expire on the following dates:

Date of Distribution


Number of Shares


Date of Expiry of Resale Restrictions

August 21, 2017


4,855,112


December 22, 2017

August 31, 2017


4,077,727


January 1, 2018

September 11, 2017


1,762,879


January 12, 2018

The Company also announces that the Board of Directors of the Company (the "Board") granted 2,850,000 options to purchase common shares to certain directors and officers, at an exercise price of $1.30, for a term of five years, pursuant to the Company's incentive stock option plan. In considering the option grants, the Board took into account that the directors approved a reduction to independent directors' fees (effective August 19, 2017), previous option grants, and the fact that the Chairman, Wayne Richardson and director, Stephen Dattels, are not paid any director fees. The granting of stock options under the stock option plan is a meaningful part of the Company's annual compensation policy, particularly in such circumstances.

The Company's Stock Option Plan allows for the issuance of up to 10% of issued and outstanding share capital in the form of incentive stock options. As a result of this grant, the Company has 10,850,000 stock options issued, representing 8.5% of the issued and outstanding share capital.
