RENO, NEVADA and VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, April 30, 2015 /CNW/ - Ram Power, Corp. (TSX: RPG) ("Ram Power" or the "Company") announced today that it has closed the private placement offering of subscription receipts (the "Private Placement") previously announced by the Company pursuant to a press release on April 20, 2015 regarding an equity and recapitalization transaction (the "Transaction").
The Private Placement consisted of the issuance by the Company of 18,598,500,000 subscription receipts (each, a "Subscription Receipt") at a price of CDN$0.004 per Subscription Receipt for aggregate proceeds of approximately CDN$74 million. Each Subscription Receipt entitles the holder thereof to receive, without payment of additional consideration, one common share of the Company (a "Common Share") upon the satisfaction of certain release conditions (the "Escrow Release Conditions"), as further described in the April 20, 2015 press release. The aggregate proceeds of the Private Placement are being held in escrow by CST Trust Company pending the satisfaction of the Escrow Release Conditions.
As described in the April 20, 2015 press release, as a fee for services related to the Private Placement, the Company was obliged to issue 1,000,040,000 Common Shares (the "Fee Shares") to Goodwood Inc. ("Goodwood") or as it may otherwise direct, which Fee Shares were issued today upon closing of the Private Placement. The number of Fee Shares is equal to 8% of the aggregate proceeds of the Private Placement divided by the issue price of CDN$0.004 per Common Share, other than proceeds arising from purchases of Subscription Receipts by investment funds or accounts managed by Goodwood or by certain other specified investors.
The Company also today issued 125,000,000 Common Shares (the "Dundee Shares") to Dundee Securities Europe LLP ("Dundee") as a fee for the financial advisory services provided by Dundee to the Company in connection with the Company's search for a strategic transaction.
On April 28, 2015, the Toronto Stock Exchange (the "TSX") gave its conditional approval for the Private Placement to proceed, the Fee Shares and Dundee Shares to be issued, conversion of the Company's debentures to proceed and for the listing of additional Company pre-consolidation shares on the TSX, subject to the private placement and the debenture conversion closing and other standard and customary conditions. For further details regarding the Company's debentures and pre-consolidation shares, please see the April 20, 2015 press release.
The Company is working on effecting the Escrow Release Conditions as soon as possible within the next several months at which time the Subscription Receipts will be converted into Common Shares and the proceeds of the Private Placement will be released from escrow. However, as described in the April 20, 2015 press release, there is no certainty that the Escrow Release Conditions will be satisfied and, if they are not, or certain specified triggering events occur prior to the Escrow Release Conditions being satisfied, the proceeds of the Private Placement, together with interest earned thereon, will be returned to the holders of the Subscription Receipts.
