CALGARY, Sept. 30 /CNW/ - Paris Energy Inc. ("Paris" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it intends to complete a non-brokered private placement of $330,000 principal amount of 10% convertible secured debentures (the "Debentures"), subject to receipt of all applicable regulatory approvals.
Humboldt Capital Corp. ("Humboldt") has agreed to subscribe for the entire $330,000 principal amount of Debentures to be issued pursuant to the private placement. Humboldt currently holds approximately 19% of the issued and outstanding common shares ("Common Shares") of the Company. Following completion of the private placement, and assuming the full conversion of the Debentures acquired pursuant thereto, Humboldt will hold approximately 49% of the issued and outstanding Common Shares.
Neither the Company nor, to the knowledge of the Company after reasonable inquiry, Humboldt has knowledge of any material information concerning the Company or its securities that has not been generally disclosed.
The Debentures will be repayable two years from the date of issue, will bear interest at 10% per annum payable annually in cash and will be convertible into Common Shares by the holder at any time prior to maturity at a rate of $0.06 per Common Share, subject to adjustment in certain circumstances. In addition, the Company shall have the right to redeem the Debentures at any time following the date that is six (6) months from the issue date, provided that the Common Shares have traded at a price greater than $0.10 per share for a period of at least 20 consecutive trading days. The Debentures will be a secured obligation of the Company.
The Debentures and any Common Shares issued upon conversion of the Debentures will be subject to a hold period of four months and one day from the closing date.
The proceeds of the offering will be used by the Company for the repayment of certain outstanding debt and for general corporate purposes.
Paris anticipates closing the private placement on or about October 7, 2009.
