Cerro de Pasco Resources Announces Warrant Extension
MONTRÉAL, QUÉBEC, CANADA — (February 9, 2022) Cerro de Pasco Resources Inc. (CSE:CDPR) (Frankfurt: N8HP) (“CDPR,” or the “Corporation“) announces that it is exceptionally amending the terms of common share purchase warrants issued as part of non-brokered private placements closed between February 28, 2020 and August 28, 2020.
The Corporation issued 2,343,500 common share purchase warrants (the “Warrants”) pursuant to private placement offerings of the Corporation closed on February 28, 2020 and March 6, 2020. Each such Warrant entitles its holder to purchase one common share of the Corporation at an exercise price is $0.65 for a period of two years.
The Corporation also issued 10,184,588 common share purchase warrants (the “Other Warrants”) pursuant to private placement offerings of the Corporation closed on June 15, 2020, June 16, 2020, July 2, 2020, August 21, 2020 and August 28, 2020. Each such Other Warrant entitles its holder to purchase one common share of the Corporation at an exercise price is $0.50 for a period of two years.
None of the Warrants and Other Warrants have been exercised to date.
The Corporation intends to extend the term of the Warrants and Other Warrants to February 28, 2023, and to reduce the exercise price of the Warrants, except for 53,150 Warrants held by insiders of the Corporation, from $0.65 to $0.50, with all other terms and conditions of the Warrants and Other Warrants remaining the same.
A portion of the Warrants is held by parties who are considered to be “related parties” of the Corporation. Therefore, the amendment of the Warrants constitutes a “related party transaction” as contemplated by Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Shareholders in Special Transactions. However, the exemptions from formal valuation and minority approval requirements provided for by Multilateral Instrument 61-101 can be relied upon as the fair market value of such Warrants does not exceed 25% of the market capitalization of the Corporation. A material change report in respect of this related party transaction will be filed by the Corporation.
