North Arrow Minerals Inc. (TSXV-NAR) (“North Arrow” or “Company”) is pleased to announce it has closed the bought deal private placement announced on May 8, 2015. The Company has issued 4,211,000 flow-through common shares (“Flow-Through Shares”) at a price of $0.95 per share for aggregate proceeds of $4,000,450 (the “Offering”).
The Offering was led by Dundee Securities Ltd. on behalf of a syndicate of underwriters including Haywood Securities Inc. (collectively, the “Underwriters”). In connection with the Offering, the Underwriters received a cash commission on the sale of the Flow-Through Shares equal to 5% of the gross proceeds of the Offering. The Flow-Through Shares issued under the Offering are subject to a hold period, which will expire four months and one day from the date of closing, being September 29, 2015.
The Company intends to use the gross proceeds from the Offering for “Canadian exploration expenses” (within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada)), with the Company using its best efforts to ensure that an amount equal to such proceeds will be used to incur Canadian exploration expenses related to the exploration and evaluation of North Arrow’s Canadian diamond properties, including Qilalugaq (Nunavut), Pikoo (Saskatchewan), and Redemption (Northwest Territories). The Company will renounce such Canadian exploration expenses with an effective date of no later than December 31, 2015.
