Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - August 6, 2021) - Aurania Resources Ltd. (TSXV: ARU) (OTCQB: AUIAF) (FSE: 20Q) ("Aurania" or the "Company") announces that it is proposing to amend the terms of 1,043,567 common share purchase warrants (the "Warrants") issued by the Company in connection with a private placement financing that closed in three tranches on February 28, March 5 and March 13, 2020. The Warrants were issued during the early days of the COVID-19 global pandemic and carry an exercise price per share of C$4.25. The Warrants issued in each tranche of the private placement are scheduled to expire on August 28, September 5 and September 13, 2021, respectively. The proposed amendments will include the following (the "Proposed Amendments"): (a) a reduction of the exercise price to C$3.40 per share issuable upon exercise of a Warrant; (b) an extension to the expiry date to March 13, 2022; and (c) an accelerated expiry provision, such that the Warrants will expire on the earlier of the extended expiry date and 30 days following the 10th consecutive trading day on which the closing price of Aurania's shares exceeds the amended exercise price of the Warrants by 15% or more.
The Proposed Amendments are subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV"). Subject to the approval of the TSXV, the Proposed Amendments will become effective automatically as of the original date and time of expiry of the Warrants. Prior to the original date and time of expiry of the Warrants, the Warrants will remain in force, unamended, per their original terms and conditions. None of the Warrants are beneficially owned, directly or indirectly, by related parties of Aurania and none of the Warrants are listed on the TSXV. The Proposed Amendments do not apply to any Warrants issued to finders or agents as compensation.
Holders of the Warrants may contact the Company at firstname.lastname@example.org or DSA Corporate Services, the administrator of the Warrants, should they have any questions or wish to exercise their Warrants. Subject to the amendments becoming effective, the original certificate representing the Warrants, together with a duly completed exercise form, will be accepted together with payment made to Aurania Resources Ltd., in accordance with the instructions provided on the certificate representing the Warrants.
