Toronto, Ontario - July 21, 2017: Rosita Mining Corp. ("RMC" or the "Company") (TSXV-RST) has arranged a non-brokered private-placement offering for total gross proceeds of up to $1,200,000. Pursuant to the offering, RMC will issue a total of up to 40 million common shares at a price of three cents per common share.
RMC has obtained a discretionary waiver from the five-cent minimum pricing requirement by the TSX Venture Exchange pursuant to the TSX-V bulletin dated April 7, 2014.
The closing of the private placement may occur in one or more tranches, with the initial closing date of the private placement expected to occur on or before July 31, 2017, and is not subject to receipt of a minimum amount of gross proceeds. The company may pay finders' fees of 8 per cent cash and 8 per cent warrants to certain introducing parties in respect of the private placement, subject to compliance with applicable securities legislation and TSX Venture Exchange policies. Closing is subject to receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals. The securities issued pursuant to the private placement will be subject to a four-month hold period in accordance with applicable Canadian securities laws. Certain directors and/or officers of the company, including John F. Cook, president and director of the company, are expected to participate in the private placement.
The offering is open, subject to certain limitations discussed as follows, to existing shareholders of the Company who, at the close of business on July 5, 2017, held common shares of the Company, and who continue to hold common shares of the Company at the time of closing of the offering, pursuant to the prospectus exemption set out in Multilateral CSA Notice 45-313 and OSC Rule 45-501, and the various corresponding blanket orders and rules of participating jurisdictions. The total acquisition cost to a subscriber under the existing shareholder exemption cannot exceed $15,000 unless that subscriber has obtained advice from a registered investment dealer regarding the suitability of the investment. There is a minimum subscription amount of $3,000. Any existing shareholder interested in participating in the offering should contact the Company. The Company will fill subscriptions from investors on a first-come, first-served basis wherein the subscribers who are first to submit a duly completed subscription agreement with payment of the corresponding subscription proceeds will have their subscription filled first.
If subscriptions received for the offering based on all available exemptions exceed the maximum offering amount of $1,200,000, subscriptions will be accepted at the discretion of the Company, such that it is possible that a subscription received from a shareholder may not be accepted by the Company if the offering is oversubscribed.
