Indico Announces Results of Special Meeting and Closing of Second Tranche of Private Placement
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - July 25, 2013) - Indico Resources Ltd. ("Indico" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:IDI) announces that further to its news releases of May 22 and June 26, 2013, the Company held a special meeting of its shareholders on July 15, 2013 (the "Meeting"). At the Meeting, an ordinary resolution of disinterested shareholders was passed approving the potential creation of a new control person arising from the issuance (the "Private Placement") of convertible debentures (the "Convertible Debentures") to Stonehouse Construction Private Limited ("Stonehouse").
Pursuant to the terms of the Private Placement, Convertible Debentures in the aggregate principal amount of $1,500,000 are to be issued to Stonehouse. The Convertible Debentures bear interest at an initial rate of 8% per annum and are convertible in whole or in part into an unit (the "Unit") at a price of $0.11 per Unit. Each Unit will be comprised of one common share in the capital of the Company (a "Share") and one common share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one Share at an exercise price of $0.16 per Share for a period of two years from the closing of the Private Placement, subject to Indico's right to accelerate the exercise of the Warrants (the "Accelerated Expiry") in the event the closing price of the Shares on the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSX-V") is equal to or exceeds $0.30 per Share for a period of 10 consecutive trading days between the expiry date of the four month hold period and the date of expiry of the Warrants.
On June 26, 2013, the Company announced that it had closed the first tranche of the Private Placement with respect to a Convertible Debenture in the principal amount of $574,769.03 which is convertible in whole or in part into a maximum of 5,225,173 Units at a price of $0.11 per Unit. The Company is pleased to announce that it has now also closed the second tranche of the Private Placement with respect to an additional Convertible Debenture in the principal amount of $925,230.97 which is convertible in whole or in part into a maximum of 8,411,190 Units at a price of $0.11 per Unit. Immediately following completion of the Private Placement, the Convertible Debentures issued to Stonehouse were converted into an aggregate of 13,636,363 Units at a price of $0.11 per Unit.
Subject to the approval of TSX-V, Stonehouse may at its' sole discretion elect to receive units of Indico (the "Interest Units") in payment of all or any part of the accrued interest payable at the end of the term. Each Interest Unit shall be comprised of one Share and one Warrant (the "Interest Warrant") entitling the holder to acquire an additional Share expiring July 24, 2015, subject to the Accelerated Expiry. The conversion price on the Interest Units and the exercise price of the Interest Warrants shall be the lowest price allowable under the policies of the TSX-V at the time TSX-V approval is obtained for such interest conversion.
Following completion of the Private Placement, and subsequent conversion of the Convertible Debentures, Stonehouse now has direct ownership and control over 13,636,363 common shares of the Company representing 19.29% of the issued and outstanding common shares. If Stonehouse were to exercise all of the Warrants, it would then own 27,272,726 common shares of the Company representing 32.34% of the then issued and outstanding common shares of the Company.
Stonehouse acquired the Convertible Debentures and the underlying Units for investment purposes. Stonehouse may, subject to the approval of the TSX-V, elect to convert the all or a portion of outstanding interest payable on the Debentures into Interest Units. Otherwise, Stonehouse has no present intention to acquire further securities of the Company, although Stonehouse may in the future acquire or dispose of securities of the Company, through the market, privately or otherwise, as circumstances or market conditions warrant.
All securities issued in connection with the Private Placement will be subject to a statutory hold period of four months plus a day from the date of issuance in accordance with applicable securities legislation.
The net proceeds from the Private Placement are intended to be used to further exploration of the Company's Ocaņa porphyry copper-gold project in Peru and for general working capital purposes.
