VANCOUVER, Jan. 11, 2018 /CNW/ - Cobalt Power Group Inc. (the "Company") (TSX.V: CPO) is pleased to announce that, pursuant to a price reservation and conditional acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange, it has closed a non-brokered private placement of 13,640,000 units for gross proceeds of CDN$1,500,400.
The non-brokered private placement closed on January 10, 2018, and consisted of the placement of 13,640,000 units at a price of $0.11 per unit. Each unit consisted of one common share of the Company and one-half transferable share purchase warrant with one full warrant entitling the holder to purchase one additional common share of the Company at a price of $0.28 for a period of two (2) years following the date of closing.
As compensation for the placement of the units, Cobalt Power has agreed to pay finder's fees equal to $79,920 calculated at 6% of the amount placed by one (1) finder. The finder has opted to convert his cash commissions into shares of Cobalt Power at a price of $0.32 per share for a total of 249,750 common shares of the Company, subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval.
All securities issued by Cobalt Power pursuant to the offering have been issued subject to a four month hold period expiring May 11, 2018.
The non-brokered private placement received substantial interest resulting in an oversubscription, whereby some of the subscriptions were not filled and some were reduced from the original amount. Due to this demand, management opted out of participating.
The proceeds will be used to advance the Company's cobalt properties, including properties recently gained through the acquisition of Canadian Cobalt Projects Inc. and additional cobalt exploration opportunities resulting from that acquisition.
