April 16, 2021 – TheNewswire – Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada – Jazz Resources Inc. (the “Company” or “JZR”) (TSXV:JZR) wishes to announce a proposed non-brokered private placement offering of unsecured convertible debentures (the “Debentures”) to raise aggregate gross proceeds of up to $2,500,000 (the “Offering”).
The Debentures will have a maturity date of two (2) years from the date of issuance and shall bear interest at a rate of 8% per annum, payable and compounded annually. The principal sum of the Debentures, or any portion thereof, may be converted by the holder into units (the “Units”) of the Company at a conversion price of $0.30 per Unit. Each Unit shall be comprised of one common share (a “Conversion Share”) and one share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”). Each whole Warrant shall entitle the holder to acquire one additional common share (a “Warrant Share”) in the capital of the Company at a price of $0.30 per share for a period of eighteen (18) months from the date that the Warrants are issued. The Debentures will also be subject to an acceleration clause whereby, in the event the volume weighted average trading price of the Company’s common shares trading on the TSX Venture Exchange (the “Exchange”), or any other stock exchange on which the Company’s common shares are then listed, is equal to or greater than $0.90 for a period of 30 consecutive trading days, the Debentures shall automatically convert into Units of the Company at a rate of one Unit for each $0.30 of outstanding principal sum. If the Debentures are automatically converted, any accrued but unpaid interest shall be paid in cash. The Company shall have the right, at any time during the first six months after the Debentures are issued, to redeem up to 50% of the outstanding principal sum of any Debenture (the “Redemption Amount”) upon paying the Redemption Amount and any accrued but unpaid interest thereon to the holder thereof on the date of redemption.
In connection with the Offering, the Company may pay a finder’s fee to certain registered brokerage firms, as permitted by the policies of the Exchange and in accordance with applicable securities laws. The Debentures, Units, Conversion Shares, Warrants, Warrant Shares and any securities issued in connection with any finder’s fees, will be subject to a hold period of four months and one day after the date of issuance thereof.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering to undertake exploration and development activities on its Vila Nova gold project located in Brazil, and for general working capital purposes.
