Vancouver, British Columbia – Genesis Metals Corp. ("Genesis" or the "Company") (TSX-V: GIS) is pleased to announce the closing of its non-brokered private placement of units (the "Units") and flow-through common shares (the "FT Shares") of the Company (the "Private Placement") previously announced on November 21, 2018. Due to increased demand, the Private Placement was increased to 6,878,571 Units at a price of $0.07 per Unit and 8,150,000 FT Shares at a price of $0.09 per FT Share, for aggregate gross proceeds of $1,215,000.
Each Unit is comprised of one common share of the Company and one-half of one common share purchase warrant, each whole such warrant entitling the holder to purchase one common share of the Company at a price of $0.10 per share until December 11, 2020.
In consideration for arranging the Private Placement, the Company paid cash finders' fees in the aggregate amount of $29,064 and issued a total of 359,200 finder's warrants, each finder's warrant is exercisable to acquire one common share of the Company at a price of $0.10 per share until December 11, 2020.
Certain insiders of the Company participated in the Private Placement by purchasing 770,000 Units for gross proceeds of $53,900. Accordingly, the Private Placement constituted to that extent a "related party transaction" under applicable Canadian securities laws. The Company did not file a material change report more than 21 days before the expected closing of the Private Placement as the details of the Private Placement and the participation therein by related parties of the Company were not settled until shortly prior to closing and the Company wished to close on an expedited basis for sound business reasons.
All securities issued in connection the Private Placement (including FT Shares, shares, warrants, finder's warrants and any shares issued upon the exercise of warrants and finder's warrants) are subject to a hold period and may not be traded until April 12, 2018 except as permitted by applicable securities legislation and the rules and policies of the TSX Venture Exchange.
