Yorbeau closes first tranche of private placement
Montreal, January 28, 2014- Yorbeau Resources Inc. (TSX: YRB.A) (the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the Company has closed a non-brokered private placement financing of $1 M representing the first tranche of an equity financing of up to $2 M. Under this first tranche, the Company issued a total of 5,555,556 units at a price of $0.18 per unit for gross proceeds of $1 M. Each unit consists of one common share of the Company (a “Common Share”) and one half of one common share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”). Each whole Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share at a price of $0.30 until December 31, 2015, provided that if the closing price of the Common Shares on the Toronto Stock Exchange is equal to or greater than $0.45 for 20 consecutive trading days, the Company will be entitled to accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants to a date ending 30 days from the date notice of such acceleration is given to the warrantholders.
The Company has agreed to pay a finder’s fee on certain subscriptions up to 5% of the gross proceeds raised and issue a number of warrants (“Finder’s Warrants”) up to 5% of the number of units sold. Each Finder’s Warrant will be exercisable for one Common Share at a price of $0.30 and will expire on December 31, 2015, subject to the same terms as the Warrants with respect to the acceleration of the expiry date.
Proceeds from the offering will be used primarily to retire outstanding indebtedness of the Company and to provide working capital.
