FireFox Gold Closes Second and Final Tranche Of Non-Brokered Private Placement and Announces Two Warrant Amendments
VANCOUVER, BC – (April 17, 2023) – FireFox Gold Corp. (TSX.V: FFOX)(OTCQB: FFOXF) (“FireFox” or the “Company”) announces, effective April 14, 2023 that, subject to regulatory acceptance, it has completed the second and final tranche of the non-brokered private placement (the “Private Placement”) announced on February 27, 2023.
FireFox has raised gross proceeds of $978,500 by issuing 9,785,000 units of the Company at a purchase price of $0.10 per unit. Each unit consists of one common share of the Company and one common share purchase warrant, with each whole warrant being exercisable to acquire one additional common share of the Company at an exercise price of $0.15 per share for a term of two years from the date of issuance. The Shares issued pursuant to the Private Placement will be subject to a statutory hold period of four months plus one day from the date of issuance, in accordance with applicable securities legislation.
The Company intends to use the proceeds of the Private Placement for general corporate purposes, working capital and exploration activities on FireFox’s gold exploration properties in Finland.
FireFox will pay to qualified finders $4,200 in cash finders fees and will issue 42,000 finders warrants exercisable at $0.15 for 2 years from the date of issuance. FireFox will also pay $31,800 in agency fees and will issue 318,000 agency warrants exercisable at $0.15 for 2 years from the date of issuance.
FireFox also announces that it is applying to the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV”) to extend the expiry date of 8.33 million common share purchase warrants issued by the Company in connection with a private placement financing closed on April 30, 2021. This will extend the expiry date by one year to April 28, 2024. The warrants to be amended do not include any warrants issued to finders or agents. No other terms of the warrants are to be amended and the exercise price remains at $0.27.
In addition, the Company is also seeking approval from the TSXV to re-price 2.53 million common share purchase warrants from an exercise price of $0.18 to $0.12. The re-pricing request pertains to a non-brokered private placement closed by the Company on November 15, 2022. FireFox’s objective in re-pricing the warrants is to bring them in line with the exercise price of another non-brokered private placement closed very shortly thereafter on December 19, 2022, in which the warrant exercise price was $0.12. The warrants in question have an expiry date of November 15, 2024.
