Lithion Energy Corporation (TSXV-LNC) (the "Company") is pleased to announce the completion of its previously announced consolidation, private placement and acquisition of the Railroad Valley lithium brine property located in Nevada, and the Black Canyon lithium clay property located in Arizona.
The Company has completed the consolidation of the Company's issued and outstanding common shares (the "Common Shares") on the basis of one (1) post-consolidation Common Share for every five (5) pre-consolidation Common Shares (the "Consolidation"). The Board concluded that the Consolidation would be in the best interests of the Company's shareholders as it could lead to increased interest by a wider investor audience and better position the Company to obtain financing and pursue acquisition opportunities.
Further to the Company's news releases dated September 8, 2016 and March 21, 2017, the Company has completed a private placement of 7,500,000 units, on a post-consolidated basis, at a price of $0.10 per unit for gross proceeds of $750,000. Each unit comprises of one common share of the Company and one non-transferable common share purchase warrant. Each common share purchase warrant is exercisable to acquire one additional common share of the Company for a period of 24 months at a post consolidated price of $0.15 per share purchase warrant.
The Company paid a finder's fee of $800 in connection with the private placement. The Company intends to use the proceeds from the private placement to finance exploration on the Railroad Valley lithium brine property, and the Black Canyon lithium clay property, and to review and assess additional technology metal natural resources exploration and development properties as well as general administrative purposes.
As a result of the private placement, King & Bay West Management Corp. ("King & Bay") will own and control 2,500,000 common shares of the Company, representing approximately 8.87% of the issued and outstanding common shares of the Company. Assuming the exercise of all of the warrants which King & Bay will own, King & Bay would own and control 5,000,000 common shares of the Company, representing approximately 16.30% of the then issued and outstanding common shares of the Company. King & Bay has acquired the common shares and warrants for investment purposes and may, in the future, acquire or dispose of the common shares or warrants through the market, private or otherwise as circumstances or market conditions warrant. A copy of the early warning report required to be filed with the applicable securities commission in connection with the transaction will be available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com and can be obtained by contacting Sheila Paine at 604-681-8030.
