TORONTO, Nov. 15, 2018 /CNW/ - Largo Resources Ltd. ("Largo" or the "Company") (TSX: LGO) (OTCQX: LGORF) is pleased to announce that effective December 3, 2018 the Company will permit, without any further action on the part of holders ("Warrantholders"), all outstanding unlisted warrants of the Company (the "Warrants") to be exercisable on a cashless exercise basis at the option of the Warrantholder. No other terms of the Warrants are being amended.
Mr. Mark Smith, Chief Executive Officer of Largo, stated "If our Warrantholders take advantage of this cashless exercise tool,it will minimize dilution to our shareholders upon exercise. As an example, assuming all of the existing Warrants are exercised on this basis at a price of $4.38 (being the approximate 5-day VWAP as of close today), approximately 16.3 million fewer common shares will be issued upon exercise."
The outstanding Warrants which will now be exercisable on a cashless exercise basis are those issued in connection with the following financings:
- January 29, 2016 and March 2, 2016 (unit private placement) exercisable at $0.29 per common share and expiring 5 years from issuance
- September 7, 2016, September 12, 2016 and October 4, 2016 (unit private placement) exercisable at $0.65 per common share and expiring 3 years from issuance
- January 2, 2017 and January 24, 2017 (unit private placement) exercisable at $0.65 per common share and expiring 3 years from issuance
- April 12, 2017, (part of short term shareholder loan) exercisable at $0.50 per common share and expiring December 31, 2020
- November 30, 2017 and December 13, 2017 (unit private placement) exercisable at $1.15 per common share and expiring 5 years from issuance
Warrantholders may exercise their Warrants without cash consideration through the issuance of common shares in the capital of Largo ("Common Shares") equal to the following formula: (number of Warrants exercised * market price1 at the time of exercise) less (number of Warrants exercised * exercise price) / market price1 at the time of exercise.
Market price means the volume weighted average trading price of the Common Shares on the TSX, or another stock exchange where the majority of the trading volume and value of the listed securities occurs, for the five (5) trading days immediately preceding the date the Company receives the Cashless Exercise Election Form (defined below).
