CALGARY, Feb. 24, 2015 /CNW/ - Petro-Victory Energy Corp. ("Petro-Victory" or the "Company") (TSX-V: VRY)
Petro-Victory is pleased to announce that it intends to complete a non-brokered private placement offering of units at a price of $0.05 per unit for gross proceeds of up to $2,000,000. Each unit will consist of one common share and one common share purchase warrant. Each warrant will entitle the holder thereof to acquire one additional common share at a price of $0.15 per share for a period of 24 months after the closing.
A finder's fee of up to 8% of the gross proceeds of the offering may be paid on all or any portion of the funds raised pursuant to this offering. In addition, finders will receive finder's warrants equal to up to 8% of the number of units issued in connection with the offering. Each finder's warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one common share at a price of $0.15 for a period of 24 months after the closing.
The first closing of the offering is expected to occur on or about February 27, 2015, and is subject to regulatory approval. All securities issued in connection with the offering will be subject to a hold period of four months and one day from the date of closing. The net proceeds from the Offering will be used to for general corporate purposes.
On June 26, 2014, the Company executed an unsecured convertible debenture (the "Debenture") in the amount of $5,000,000 with the holder of the Debenture, a party with a common Director. The interest rate was 8% and was payable at the earlier of maturity date or the conversion date. The maturity date was December 26, 2014. On July 25, 2014, the Company repaid $2,500,000 of the principal as well as interest on that portion of the Debenture.
The Company and the holder have reached an agreement in principle to amend the terms of the Debenture and to extend the remaining principal and interest balance of $2,600,000 for about 13 more months. The agreement in principle for the amendment and extension agreement contemplates payment of principal and remaining interest due on March 31, 2016. As part of the extension, the Company has agreed in principle to secure the Debenture. The extension remains subject to final documentation and ordinary security granting provisions.
