CALGARY, Aug. 30, 2019 /CNW/ - Petro-Victory Energy Corp. (TSX-V: VRY) ("Petro-Victory" or "Company") is pleased to announce that, further to its news release dated August 15, 2019, Petro-Victory has closed its previously announced $700,000 financing. The Company raised total gross proceeds of $700,000 by way of non-brokered private placement offering (the "Offering") issuing 35,000,000 common shares of the Company ("Common Share") at a price of $0.02 per Common Share. The Offering was made pursuant to a waiver granted by the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV") which permits the Company to offer the Common Shares at a price below the TSXV $0.05 minimum pricing requirement.
Approximately half of the net proceeds from the Offering will be used for final payments on certain previously announced working interest acquisitions in Brazil, and the remainder for officer salaries, director and officer insurance, payment of accrued professional fees and general working capital.
All securities issued in connection with the Offering will be subject to a hold period of four months and one day from the date of closing.
The completion of the Offering is subject to final TSXV acceptance. Of the 35,000,000 Common Shares issued pursuant to the Offering, 7,500,001 were issued to one director and three executive officers of Petro-Victory. The insider participation is deemed to be a "related party transaction" as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). Neither the Company, nor to the knowledge of the Company after reasonable inquiry, a related party, has knowledge of any material information concerning the Company or its securities that has not been generally disclosed. The Offering is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 pursuant to subsections 5.5(c) and 5.7(1)(b) of MI 61-101 as it was a distribution of securities for cash and neither the fair market value of the Common Shares distributed to, nor the consideration received from, interested parties exceeded 25% of the Company's market capitalization.
This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any sale of these securities, in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of such jurisdiction. The securities have not been and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "U.S. Securities Act"), or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold within the United States unless an exemption from such registration is available.
Neither the TSXV nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is defined in the policies of the TSXV) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
