Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - December 15, 2021) - S2 Minerals Inc. (CSE: STWO) ("S2" or the "Company") announces that it proposes to complete a non-brokered private placement (the "Offering") of up to 12,000,000 units of the Company (the "Units") at a price of $0.12 per Unit, for gross proceeds of up to $1,440,000.
Each Unit will consist of one common share ("Share") of the Company and one-half of a common share purchase warrant ("Warrant"). Each whole Warrant will entitle the holder, on exercise, to purchase one Share for a period of two years following the closing date of the Offering at an exercise price of $0.25 per Share.
The proceeds from the Offering will be used for general corporate purposes. The Offering is expected to close in January 2022 and is conditional on the satisfaction of customary conditions, including the receipt of any required regulatory approvals. The securities issued pursuant to the Offering will be subject to a four-month hold period.
Insiders of the Company may subscribe for up to $1,296,000 (being 90%) of the Offering. Accordingly, the Offering will be considered a "related party transaction" pursuant to Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). Pursuant to Sections 5.5(b) and 5.7(1)(b) of MI 61-101, the Company is exempt from the requirements to obtain a formal valuation and minority shareholder approval because the Shares trade on the Canadian Securities Exchange and the fair market value of insiders' participation in the Offering will be below $2,500,000 and is for cash. The Company will file a material change report in respect of the Offering, but it may be filed less than 21 days in advance of the closing of the Offering, which the Company deems reasonable in the circumstances so as to be able to avail itself of potential financing opportunities and to complete the Offering in an expeditious manner.
