VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 22, 2012) -
NOT FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES
Raymond A. Hrkac, President and CEO of GGL Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:GGL) announces that GGL has had an initial closing of its non-brokered private placement originally announced on July 4, 2012. Up to 3,000,000 non-flow-through units each at a price of $0.05 per unit will be sold.
In the initial closing, 2,400,000 non flow-through units at $0.05 per unit were placed for gross proceeds of $120,000. Each non flow-through unit consists of one non flow-through common share and one non-transferable common share purchase warrant. Each warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one non flow-through common share until August 17, 2017 at $0.10 per share, subject to an Acceleration Event. The securities for this initial closing have a hold period until December 18, 2012.
If GGL's common shares trade on the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV") at a closing price greater than $0.40 per share for twenty consecutive trading days at any time after four months and one day from the closing date, GGL may accelerate the expiry of the warrants by giving notice to the holders thereof, and in such case the warrants will expire on the 30th day after the date on which such notice is given ("Acceleration Event").
The proceeds from the sale of the units will be used for general exploration work and for general corporate purposes. Future closings of the private placement are subject to acceptance for filing by the TSXV.
On August 9, 2012, Mr. Hrkac announced that the Company intends to raise up to $120,000 by way of a non-brokered private placement of flow-through units at a price of $0.05 per unit. Each flow-through unit will consist of one flow-through common share and one non-transferable non flow-through warrant. Originally each warrant would entitle the holder to purchase one non flow-through common share for three years from the closing date at $0.10 per share, subject to an Acceleration Event (see above definition). The Company will be relying on the recently announced TSXV Temporary Relief Measures to change the warrant's exercise price to $0.05 per share during the first year and $0.10 per share for years two and three, subject to an Acceleration Event and meeting the TSXV requirements.
The proceeds from the sale of flow-through common shares will be used to incur Canadian Exploration Expense ("CEE"), as defined in the Income Tax Act (Canada). GGL will renounce such CEE to the subscribers effective for the 2012 tax year.
The private placement is subject to acceptance for filing by the TSXV.
