Medgold to Amend Warrants
Posted Under: Exchange Filings
Vancouver, Canada, October 23, 2014, Medgold Resources Corp. (TSX-V: MED) (the “Company”) announces that its Board of Directors has determined that it is in the best interests of the Company to amend the exercise price of certain common share purchase warrants (the “Warrants”) issued in early 2014 pursuant to a private placement. In order to encourage exercise of the Warrants, the Warrant holders have been given the right, for a limited time, to elect to exercise up to 60% of their Warrants at an exercise price of $0.11 per common share (“Share”), rather than the original exercise price of $0.15 per Share.
All of the Warrant holders of the Company have consented to the warrant amendment and certain Warrant holders have elected to exercise a total of 7,000,000 Warrants at the reduced price, for total funds to be raised of $770,000. The remaining 9,550,000 Warrants not exercised at the reduced price will continue to be exercisable at $0.15 per Share until February 4, 2016, the expiry date of the Warrants.
This transaction provides the Company with the opportunity to raise funds without conducting a new equity financing which would cause significant dilution to the existing shareholders. The Warrant exercise proceeds are intended to be spent on exploration of the Company’s properties in Europe and for general working capital purposes.
The foregoing warrant amendment is subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval.
