Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - September 22, 2022) - Barksdale Resources Corp. (TSXV: BRO) (OTCQB: BRKCF) ("Barksdale" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has closed the non-brokered private placement financing announced September 6, 2022 ("Offering"). Due to excess demand, the Company increased the size of the Offering from the $2,000,000 originally announced and issued a total of 4,622,917 units (the "Units") at a price of $0.48 per Unit for gross proceeds of $2,219,000. Each Unit consisted of one common share and one-half (1/2) of one transferable share purchase warrant, each whole warrant entitling the holder thereof to purchase one common share at $0.72 for a period of three years.
Crescat Portfolio Management LLC ("Crescat"), a 10% insider of the Company and certain directors and officers of the Company (collectively "Insiders") participated in the Offering for a total of 2,151,251 Units, which participation constituted a "related party transaction" for the purposes of Multilateral Instrument 61-101, Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). The Company relied upon exemptions from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 in completing the Offering with the Insiders on the basis that the fair market value of such participation was less than 25% of Barksdale's current market capitalization.
The net proceeds from the Offering will be used to advance the Company's mineral projects and for general corporate and working capital purposes. All shares issued to date under the Offering are subject to a four month hold period expiring January 22, 2023. In connection with the closing of the Offering, the Company paid finders' fees of $46,435.19 and issued 96,740 non-transferable finder's warrants to certain brokers in accordance with applicable securities laws. Each finder's warrant entitles the holder to purchase one common share of the Company at a price of $0.72 for a period of three years.
