Vancouver, BC / TheNewswire / March 1, 2023 / Global Energy Metals Corporation TSXV:GEMC | OTCQB:GBLEF | FSE:5GE1 (“Global Energy Metals”, the “Company” and/or “GEMC”), a company involved in the investment exposure to the battery metals supply chain, is pleased to announce that, further to its press release dated February 7, 2023, it has received gross proceeds of $582,420 from the exercise of 7,280,250 share purchase warrants at $0.08 per share pursuant to its early warrant exercise incentive program (the “Program”).
Mitchell Smith, CEO & Director, commented:
“We are pleased with the shareholder support and positive outcome of this incentive program. While strengthening our cash position it also demonstrates investor confidence in the execution of Global Energy’s business plan in providing shareholders investment exposure to the battery metals space through our strong project and equity based portfolio.”
As an incentive for the early exercise of their share purchase warrants, warrant holders received an additional 7,280,250 new share purchase warrants (each an “Incentive Warrant”). Each Incentive Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one common share of the Company for a period of 12 months from the date of issuance of such Incentive Warrant, at a price of $0.15. The Incentive Warrants are subject to a four month hold period from the date of issuance.
The Incentive Warrants are also subject to an accelerated expiry if the volume weighted average price of the common shares is greater than or equal to $0.20 for any 10 consecutive trading days and, if the Company has given notice, the Incentive Warrants will expire 30 days following the date of such notice.
The balance of the warrants not exercised under the Program will remain outstanding and continue to be exercisable for common shares of the Company on their current terms, until the 15th of March, 2023 at which time any Warrants that remain unexercised will expire and be cancelled.
Insiders of the Company participated in the Incentive Program and, as a result, the Incentive Program may constitute a "related party transaction" within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Shareholders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). The Company relies on the exemptions from the formal valuation requirements of MI 61-101 contained in section 5.5(a) and (b) of MI 61-101 on the basis that the fair market value of the transaction with insiders will not be more than 25% of the market capitalization of the Company and no securities of the Company are listed on a specified market set out in such section, and the Company further relies on the exemption from the minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 contained in Section 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101 on the basis of the fair market value of the transaction with insiders will not be more than 25% of the market capitalization of the Company.
The Incentive Program is subject to the final acceptance of the TSXV.
