VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 26, 2012) - Mundoro Capital Inc. (TSX VENTURE:MUN) ("Mundoro" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has closed the brokered private placement consisting of 3,950,000 common shares sold at a price of $0.40 per share to Sheridan Platinum Group Ltd. ("Sheridan Group"). The Sheridan Group now holds approximately 9.9% of the Company's issued and outstanding shares. As previously announced, as part of the strategic investment the Sheridan Group has been granted one board seat and has agreed to certain voting and standstill covenants. In connection with the private placement, the Board of Directors of the Company received a fairness opinion from Morrison Park Advisors, Mundoro's independent financial advisor.
"We are pleased with the Sheridan Group's strengthened relationship with the Company and their support for Mundoro's strategic vision," said Mr. Hoey, Chairman of the Board. The net proceeds of the private placement will be used to fund the Company's exploration work programs in Mexico and South Eastern Europe and for potential further acquisitions.
The common shares issued under the private placement are subject to a four month hold period in accordance with Canadian securities laws. In connection with the transaction, the Company has paid a 5% cash commission to Sheridan Brothers L.P., a broker dealer member of IIROC. Any nominee of the Sheridan Group will be subject to clearance of a PIF. In addition, as a new substantial shareholder with nominee rights, the financing closed on the condition of the provision of certain additional information by the investor and its control person to the TSXV, to their satisfaction.
As previously announced, an invitation was made by the Company to Northern Minerals Investment Corp. ("NMI") to participate in the private placement on a pro rata basis to maintain its current level of ownership in Mundoro, subject to certain conditions. NMI did not respond with respect to this invitation.
On July 20, 2012, the Supreme Court of British Columbia released its Reasons for Judgment (see press release dated July 20, 2012) dismissing the application that was brought last month by NMI. The application was dismissed in its entirety. The Court upheld the Mundoro board of directors' decision to postpone the annual general meeting (the "Meeting") to August 27, 2012 and to adopt the Advance Notice Policy to protect all shareholders. On the same day that the Judgment was released, the Company received NMI's notice pursuant to Mundoro's Advance Notice Policy to nominate five individuals for election to the board of directors at the Meeting.
The adoption of the Advance Notice Policy and the postponement of the Meeting were steps taken by the Mundoro board in the best interests of the Company in order to ensure that all shareholders may be fully informed in preparation for the Meeting on August 27, 2012.
The Company also announces the resignation of Director Thomas I. Allen who has been on the board of Mundoro and its predecessor company since 2000. Mr. Allen was expected to retire from the board on June 26, 2012. However, he graciously agreed to remain on the board for an additional month due to the Meeting postponement. Mr. Hoey, Chairman of the Board said, "The Board would like to thank Mr. Allen for his invaluable contributions during his long and distinguished service as a Director and wish him well." Mr. Allen's vacancy on the board will be filled by the nominee of the Sheridan Group upon approval of such nominee by the board.
On behalf of the Company,
Teo Dechev, Chief Executive Officer, President and Director
