KELOWNA, BC, May 4, 2015 /CNW/ - Georox Resources Inc. ("Georox" or the "Corporation") (GXR:TSX-V; OF6A:FRA) is seeking to raise up to $500,000 in a non-brokered Private Placement.
Under the proposed terms of the Private Placement, the Corporation will issue 10 million units at a price of $0.05 per unit for gross cash proceeds of approximately $500,000 the ("Offering").
Each unit will consist of one common share of the Corporation and one-half common share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant will entitle the holder to acquire one common share at a price of 10 cents for a period of 24 months following the closing date of the Private Placement. The Offering will be completed in one or more tranches and the securities under the Offering will have a hold period of four months from the applicable closing date of each tranche. Closing of the Offering is not subject to a minimum aggregate subscription amount but shall be subject to receipt of all required regulatory approvals, including the TSX Venture Exchange.
It is expected that the Corporation will pay finders' fees to eligible persons consisting of either cash or units, at the finder's election, equal to 7 per cent of the proceeds from the units sold to investors introduced by, or which subscriptions are attributable to the efforts of, the finders, or 7 per cent of the number of units issued in connection with such investor subscriptions under the Offering. The Corporation will also issue to the finders non-transferable finders' warrants equal to 7 per cent of the number of units issued in connection with such investor subscriptions under the Offering. Each finder's warrant will entitle the finders to acquire one common share at a price of five cents for one year from the closing of the Private Placement.
After giving effect to the Offering, Georox will have 45,146,185 Common Shares outstanding on a basic basis. Any participation by insiders of the Corporation in the Offering will be on the same terms as the arm's length investors. The Corporation has no reason to believe that the Private Placement will result in a change of control of the Corporation.
Use of Proceeds
The use of proceeds will be for general corporate purposes, expenditures related to the optimization of production, and reduction of bank debt. The Offering expected to close within thirty days.
Share for Debt Settlement
Savi Franz, has agreed with the Corporation to settle the full amount of $125,000 outstanding loan made to the Corporation in 2013, plus accrued interest at 5%per annum, through the issuance of Georox common shares at a deemed price of $0.05. This would result in an issuance of 2,739,580 common shares. The issuance of shares will be subject to the TSX Venture Exchange approval.
The Corporation held its Annual General and Special Meeting of shareholders in Calgary on April 30, 2015. All resolutions were passed as outlined in the Information Circular dated April 1, 2015.
The Corporation produces currently 190 boepd of which 75% are light oil, 24% are heavy oil and 1% are gas. The Corporation's December's 31, 2014 reserve report indicated 520,700 bbl P+P reserves and $10.6 million 10% net present value before tax. The reserve information was prepared in accordance with NI51-101 and was previously announced on February 25, 2015 of which details will be found on the Corporation's filings at www.sedar.com.
During the recent month the Corporation has reduced administrative and operational costs.
Production volumes are commonly expressed on a barrel of oil equivalent ("BOE") basis whereby natural gas volumes are converted at a ratio of six thousand cubic feet to one barrel of oil. The intention is to convert oil and natural gas measurement units into one basis for improved analysis of results and comparisons with other industry participants. The term BOE may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. The conversion ratio is based on an energy equivalent method and does not represent an economic value equivalency at the wellhead.
