November 22, 2019 – Vancouver, British Columbia – Palladium One Mining Inc. (TSX-V: PDM, FRA: 7N11) (the "Company" or “Palladium One”) is pleased to announce that it plans to close its previously announced over-subscribed C$3.8 million non-brokered private placement (the “Private Placement”) (see press release dated November 6, 2019) on or about November 29, 2019.
As previously announced, each Unit will consist of one common share in the capital of the Company (a “Common Share”) and one-half of one non-transferable common share purchase warrant (each whole common share purchase warrant, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant would be exercisable for 24 months to purchase an additional Common Share (a “Warrant Share”) at an exercise price of $0.10 per Warrant Share for a period of 12 months from the closing date of the Private Placement (the “Closing Date”) and $0.20 thereafter, subject to acceleration. In the event a Warrant were exercised within 12 months of the Closing Date, the holder thereof would be granted one Warrant Share and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant (each whole Common Share purchase warrant, an “Incentive Warrant”). Each Incentive Warrant would entitle the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share (“Incentive Warrant Share”) for each Incentive Warrant held for a period of 24 months following the date of issuance of the Incentive Warrant at a price of $0.25 per Incentive Warrant Share, subject to capital adjustment and acceleration.
Amendment to Terms of Private Placement
Units of the Company will continue to be at a subscription price of C$0.06 per Unit, but each Unit will now consist of one Common Share, one-half of one Warrant, and one-quarter of one Common Share purchase warrant (each whole Common Share purchase warrant, a “Bonus Warrant”). Each Warrant will continue to be exercisable and subject to acceleration as previously disclosed. Each Bonus Warrant will be exercisable for a period of 12 months following the Closing Date (“Bonus Warrant Expiry Date”) to purchase one Common Share (a “Bonus Warrant Share”) at a price of C$0.15 per Bonus Warrant Share, subject to capital adjustment and acceleration.
In the event the volume-weighted average trading price of the Common Shares on the TSX Venture Exchange or such other stock exchange where the majority of the trading volume occurs, exceeds or is equal to C$0.25 per Common Share for a period of ten consecutive trading days at any point following the Closing Date, but prior to the Bonus Warrant Expiry Date, the Company may, at its option, accelerate the Bonus Warrant Expiry Date, provided that: (i) the Company disseminates a press release providing notice of its intention to accelerate the Bonus Warrant Expiry Date; and (ii) the accelerated Bonus Warrant Expiry Date falls on or after the 30th trading day after the date of dissemination of such press release, unless exercised by the holder prior to such date.
The Incentive Warrants and Incentive Warrant Shares will no longer be offered under the Private Placement. All other terms of the Private Placement remain unchanged.
