Sunshine Oilsands Ltd. Announces Partial Closing Of The Private Placement Of
HK$142.8 Million Of Common Shares And Warrants To Pyramid Valley Limited Under
The General Mandate
CALGARY, Alberta and HONG KONG, Feb. 28, 2014 /CNW/ - Sunshine Oilsands Ltd.
(the "Corporation") (HKEX: 2012, TSX: SUO) is pleased to announce today that
it has completed the closing of 45,653,958 Units (the "Partial Closing") of
its private placement of 84,000,000 Units of the Corporation to Pyramid Valley
Limited ("Pyramid Valley") at a price of HK$1.70 per Unit (approximately
CDN$0.24 per Unit) (the "Third Placing").
Each Unit is comprised of one Class "A" Common Voting Share of the Corporation
(the "Common Share") and one-third of one purchase warrant of the Corporation
(the "Warrant"). Each whole Warrant entitles the holder to acquire one Common
Share at an exercise price of HK$1.88 per Common Share (the "Warrant Exercise
Price") (approximately CDN$0.26 per Common Share) for a period of 24 months
following the closing date of the relevant placing. The Warrant Exercise Price
will be subject to normal adjustment provisions in the case of share capital
or corporate reorganizations such as share consolidations and share splits,
which will accordingly adjust the Warrant Exercise Price by the impact of such
consolidation or split on the total issued share capital of the Corporation
such that the relevant holder of the Warrant will be kept whole and will
receive their proportionate share upon exercise of the Warrant.
Upon the Partial Closing, the Corporation has received total gross proceeds of
HK$77,611,729 (equivalent to US$10,000,000) for the issuance of 45,653,958
Common Shares (the "Issued Shares") and 15,217,986 Warrants to Pyramid Valley.
As announced by the Corporation in the Announcements, the Corporation will
issue 18,261,583 Warrants to Million View Limited as a finders' fee in
connection with the Third Placing.
The Issued Shares represent (i) approximately 1.43% of the existing issued
Common Shares and (ii) immediately following the Partial Closing,
approximately 1.41% of the enlarged total issued Common Shares.
An announcement will be issued when the Corporation completes the final
closing of the Third Placing.
