The Common Shares issued under the Private Placement will be issued in two tranches: under the first tranche 15,863,336 Common Shares (the "First Tranche Shares") were issued on October 16, 2015 to Gerald Metals S.A. ("Gerald") and insiders of the Company; and under the second tranche 16,336,664 Common Shares (the "Remaining Shares") will be issued to Gerald upon acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV") of the Personal Information Forms ("PIFs") of Gerald's directors and the receipt by Gerald of the TSXV's conditional approval of the issuance by Red Tiger to Gerald of the Remaining Shares (the "TSXV Acceptance and Approval"). Further information concerning the issuance of the Remaining Shares will be disclosed in a subsequent news release following clearance of the PIFs.
Red Tiger and Gerald have entered into a shareholder rights agreement, pursuant to which Gerald shall have a right to subscribe for securities in any future equity offering to maintain its pro rata position and shall have the right to nominate one director to the board of directors of Red Tiger.
Red Tiger and Gerald have also entered into an escrow agreement pursuant to which the subscription price for the Remaining Shares will be held by an escrow agent and either released to Red Tiger upon TSXV Acceptance and Approval or returned to Gerald upon the escrow expiry date of December 15, 2015.
No commission or finder's fee will be paid in connection with the Private Placement. The shares will be offered pursuant to exemptions from prospectus requirements of applicable securities legislation and will be subject to a hold period of four months and a day from their date of issuance. The Private Placement is subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval.
Any subscriptions by insiders will be considered to be related party transactions within the meaning of TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV") Policy 5.9, which incorporates Multilateral Instrument 61-101 ("MI 61-101"). The Company is relying on the exemptions from the valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 contained in sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(a) of MI 61-101 in respect of such participation.
Red Tiger intends to use the Private Placement proceeds to fund the recommencement of mining operations.
