TORONTO, May 18 2021 – S2 Minerals Inc. (“S2” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has completed its previously announced rights offering (the “Rights Offering”), which expired on May 12, 2021, raising aggregate gross proceeds of approximately $1,200,000.
Upon closing of the Rights Offering, the Company issued a total of 12,655,667 common shares of the Company (each a “Common Share”) on May 18, 2021 at a price of $0.10 per Common Share. This represents 100% of the maximum number of Common Shares issuable under the Rights Offering. The Company now has 25,311,334 Common Shares issued and outstanding.
As previously announced (see the press release of G2 Goldfields Inc. dated February 3, 2021), in connection with the Rights Offering, the Company entered into a standby commitment agreement (the “Standby Commitment Agreement”) with Patrick Sheridan, the Chairman of S2 and its controlling shareholder, and Daniel Noone, the Chief Executive Officer and a director of S2 (collectively, the “Standby Purchasers”). As a result of the exercise of the basic subscription privilege and additional subscription privilege by the holders of rights (including by the Standby Purchasers), the Rights Offering was fully subscribed. Accordingly, the Standby Purchasers did not acquire any Common Shares under the Standby Commitment.
The Company has applied for a listing of the Common Shares, including those issued pursuant to the Rights Offering, on the Canadian Securities Exchange (the “CSE”) under the trading symbol “STWO”. Any such listing will be subject to S2 fulfilling all of the requirements of the CSE. S2 will provide further guidance at a later date on the timing for any listing of the Common Shares on the CSE.
