Fosterville South Receives Final Approval of the Court for Spinout of Leviathan Gold Ltd. Shares to Fosterville South Shareholders
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Nov. 19, 2020 – Fosterville South Exploration Ltd. (“FSX” or the “Company”) (TSXV: FSX) announces that it has received the final approval of the Court in respect of the plan of arrangement (the “Arrangement”) pursuant to which the Company will spinout its Avoca and Timor properties to Leviathan Gold Ltd. (“Leviathan”).
Subject to the procedures of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV”), the effective date of the Arrangement is scheduled to occur at 9:00 a.m. (Toronto time) on November 23, 2020. On the Effective Date of the Arrangement, each existing common share of the Company will be exchanged for (i) one new common share of the Company and (ii) one common share of Leviathan.
The Company is also pleased to announce that Leviathan Gold Finance Ltd. (“Leviathan Finance”) has engaged Clarus Securities Inc. (“Clarus”) as agent, on behalf of a syndicate of agents, to lead a best efforts private placement offering of subscription receipts (“Subscription Receipts”) at a price of $0.50 per subscription receipt for aggregate gross proceeds of up to $7.5 million (the “Offering”). The gross proceeds of the Offering (less (a) 3% of the gross proceeds of the Offering, (b) less 50% of the agents commission and (c) less the expenses of the agents) will be held in escrow and will be released to Leviathan Finance (minus the balance of the agents commission and fees) upon:
- Leviathan Gold (Australia) Pty Ltd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Leviathan, entering into an agreement to acquire the Avoca and Timor Projects from a wholly-owned subsidiary of FSX and all conditions precedent to the transaction (other than payment) being satisfied or waived;
- Leviathan Finance advising Clarus that it is prepared to file articles of amalgamation in respect of the “three cornered” amalgamation of Leviathan Finance with a wholly-owned subsidiary of Leviathan, pursuant to which shareholders of Leviathan Finance will receive common shares of Leviathan;
- the TSXV approving the listing of the common shares of Leviathan (the “Resulting Issuer”) on the TSXV ((i), (ii) and (iii) together, the “Escrow Release Conditions”).
Upon satisfaction of the Escrow Release Conditions, the holders of Subscription Receipts will receive one common share of the Resulting Issuer for each Subscription Receipt held.
If: (i) the Escrow Release Conditions are not satisfied on or before the date that is 3 months from the closing date of the Offering (the “Escrow Release Deadline”); or (ii) prior to the Escrow Release Deadline Leviathan Finance advises Clarus or announces to the public that it does not intend to satisfy the Escrow Release Conditions, the Escrowed Funds (plus accrued interest earned thereon) shall be returned to the holders of the Subscription Receipts on a pro rata basis and the Subscription Receipts will be cancelled without any further action on the part of the holders. To the extent that the Escrowed Funds (plus accrued interest) are not sufficient to refund the aggregate subscription price paid by the holders of the Subscription Receipts, Leviathan Finance shall be responsible and liable to contribute such amounts as are necessary to satisfy any shortfall.
The net proceeds of the Offering will be used by Leviathan to fund the purchase price for the Avoca and Timor projects and for general working capital.
Fosterville South Chief Executive Officer, Bryan Slusarchuk, states,“Unsolicited expressions of interest for this Leviathan Gold financing have greatly exceeded expectations and we are pleased to see the institutional demand for the financing so strong. Obviously, there will be many cutbacks prior to closing given the very strong demand and we appreciate the understanding of investors that did not receive full allocations. Leviathan Gold will emerge as a public company with a very strong treasury, excellent gold projects and a management team with a track record of creating shareholder value. We look forward to seeing the company execute on the ground, for the benefit of all stakeholders.”
Leviathan Finance also intends to undertake a non-brokered financing of up to $250,000 on the same terms as the Offering.
