MONTREAL, July 24, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Colt Resources Inc. ("Colt" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has completed a private placement consisting of 14,285,715 Units at a price of $0.35 per Unit for total gross proceeds of $5,000,000.25 (the "Non-Brokered Private Placement"). This placement has been fully subscribed for by one investor, namely Hong Kong based Worldlink Resources Ltd. ("Worldlink") which shares certain senior management with Worldlink (Canada) Resources Ltd. Each Unit is comprised of one common share and one fourth (¼) of one Warrant. Each whole Warrant will be exercisable at a price of $0.45 during a period of 60 months from the closing date of the Private Placement. The majority of the net proceeds from the Non-Brokered Private Placement will be applied towards securing additional near term production assets and for general corporate working capital purposes. No finders or agency fees will be paid in relation to this placement. Colt has also as part of this placement granted a right of first refusal to Worldlink by which it has the option to maintain proportionate interest in the company in any subsequent equity financings.
This placement is in addition to the recently announced Senior Note offering (July 4, 2013 press release) for which, in contrast to the Worldlink private placement, proceeds will be mostly allocated towards Colt`s advanced stage Portuguese assets.
Colt CEO, Nikolas Perrault stated ``We are extremely pleased with Worldlink's significant investment in the Company. Like many of our shareholders they share Colt`s long term vision for growth. Their timely participation in our capital will greatly enhance the solid foundation we are building for the future.``
