TORONTO, June 21, 2018 /CNW/ - Lamêlee Iron Ore Ltd. (TSX.V: LIR) ("LIR" or the "Company") announce that further to its news release dated June 1, 2018, the Company has amended the terms of the securities exchange agreement dated May 31, 2018 (the "Securities Exchange Agreement") with Aura Health Corp. ("Aura") with respect to the proposed reverse-take-over transaction between the Company and Aura (the "RTO").
The RTO completion deadline has been extended from June 30, 2018 to July 31, 2018, to allow Aura sufficient time to complete its previously announced private placement of a minimum $1,000,000 and a maximum of $5,000,000 financing (the "Private Placement", together with the RTO, the "Transaction"). The target price for the Private Placement has been revised to $0.49, which is same as the deemed price for the Lamelee common shares (the "LIR Shares"). As a result, on closing of the RTO, all Aura shareholders will receive one LIR share for each one Aura share. Current Aura Shareholders (including an Aura finder and holders of Aura Series A convertible debentures) will receive in aggregate 17,746,327 LIR Shares. An additional 2,040,816 LIR Shares in the case of a minimum offering, or 10,204,081 LIR Shares in the case of the maximum offering, at a deemed price of $0.49 per LIR Share will be issued to subscribers of the Private Placement, assuming the target issue price of $0.49 for the Private Placement. All Aura convertible securities outstanding immediately prior to the closing of the RTO will be replaced with LIR convertible securities, based on an one-for-one exchange ratio between Aura Shares and LIR Shares.
To assist the Company with its administrative costs for the extended period, Aura has agreed to provide a short-term non-interest bearing loan to the Company in the principal amount of $37,500. If the Transaction is not completed by its completion deadline, the loan will be applied to the termination fee payable by Aura to the Company pursuant to the Securities Exchange Agreement.
Subject to the fulfillment of the conditions precedent of the Securities Exchange Agreement, and final approval of the CSE, the Transaction is expected to close not later than July 31, 2018, or such date as the Company and Aura may agree.
