TORONTO, Sept. 25 /CNW/ - Bio-Extraction Inc. (TSX-V: BXI) ("BioExx" or the "Company") announced today that it has entered into an agreement to sell to a syndicate of agents led by Canaccord Adams and including Wellington West Capital Markets Inc., Fraser Mackenzie Limited and Loewen Ondaatje McCutcheon Limited (the "Agents"), on a bought deal private placement basis, 8,000,000 common shares ("Offered Shares") at a price of $1.25 per Offered Share for gross proceeds to BioExx of $10 million (the "Offering").
The Agents have the option, exercisable in whole or in part up to 48 hours prior to the closing of the Offering, to offer for sale up to an additional 4,000,000 common shares of the Company for additional gross proceeds of up to $5 million.
BioExx intends to use the net proceeds from the Offering to fund capital expenditures at the BioExx Saskatoon processing facility and the proposed North Dakota processing facility and for general working capital and corporate purposes. In the context of its current business plan, BioExx believes that the net proceeds of the Offering will enhance the strength of the Company's balance sheet and working capital position for the start-up and ramp-up phases of its Saskatoon protein isolate facility, with excess capital to be allocated to its planned North Dakota facility.
The Offering is expected to close on or about October 15, 2009 and is subject to regulatory approval. The Offered Shares will be subject to a four month hold period in Canada.
