Not for dissemination in the United States of America or through U.S. newswire services.
Toronto, Ontario, June 26, 2023 – New Break Resources Ltd. (“New Break” or the “Company”) (CSE: NBRK) announces that, further to its news release of June 8, 2023, the Company has successfully completed its common share purchase warrant (“Warrants”) exercise incentive program (the “Incentive Program”).
Pursuant to the Incentive Program, holders of certain Warrants with an exercise price of $0.15 (the “Subject Warrants”) and expiring on June 23, 2023 (the “Expiry Date”) who exercised part or all of their Subject Warrants on or prior to the Expiry Date, would be granted one common share purchase warrant (each an “Incentive Warrant”) for each exercised Subject Warrant. Each Incentive Warrant entitles the holder thereof to acquire one common share (an “Incentive Warrant Share”) of the Company at a price of $0.20 per common share for a period of thee (3) years from the date of issuance. The Incentive Warrants are subject to an acceleration clause, whereby if the closing price of the common shares of the Company on the Canadian Securities Exchange (the “CSE”) is equal to $0.40 or higher for five non-consecutive trading days, over a 365-day period, the Company may accelerate the expiry of the Incentive Warrants to the date that is 20 business days from the date of the issuance of a news release by the Company announcing the exercise of the acceleration right. The Subject Warrants which remained unexercised as at end of the Expiry Date have expired and no further Incentive Warrants will be issued.
A total of 1,073,850 Subject Warrants were exercised for aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of $161,077.50. Accordingly, New Break issued 1,073,850 Incentive Warrants to the holders who exercised such Subject Warrants. The Company anticipates using the proceeds from the exercise of any Subject Warrants for working capital purposes. The Subject Warrants exercised consisted of 418,850 warrants which were repriced from $0.20 to $0.15 and 655,000 warrants with an original exercise price of $0.15. No fees were paid in connection with the exercises.
The Incentive Warrants and the Incentive Warrant Shares, if issued, will be subject to a statutory hold period of four months and one day from the date of issuance of the Incentive Warrants. The Incentive Program is subject to the receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals including the approval of the CSE.
A greater than 10% securityholder and a company controlled by one of New Break’s directors (the “Insiders”) exercised an aggregate of 198,000 Subject Warrants and were issued an aggregate of 198,000 Incentive Warrants. This issuance of securities constitutes a “related party transaction” as such term is defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”). The Company is relying on an exemption from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements provided under MI 61-101 pursuant to section 5.5(a) and section 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101, on the basis that the issuance of the Incentive Warrants does not exceed 25% of the fair market value of the Company’s market capitalization.
