VANCOUVER, BC, March 19, 2021 /CNW/ - ORO X MINING CORP. (TSXV: OROX) (OTC Pink: WRPSF) ("Oro X" or the "Company") and Mines and Metals Trading (Peru) PLC ("MMTP", also commercially known as "Latitude Silver") are pleased to announce the price of the previously announced "best-efforts" private placement (the "Offering") of subscription receipts ("Subscription Receipts") of MMTP Finco Inc. ("MMTP Finco"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of MMTP, is $0.60 per Subscription Receipt. Echelon Wealth Partners Inc. and Red Cloud Securities Inc. are acting as co-lead agents (together, the "Co-Lead Agents" on their own behalf and on behalf of a syndicate of agents including Canaccord Genuity Corp., and Mackie Research Capital Corporation, collectively with the Co-Lead Agents, the "Agents") in connection with the Offering. The Offering is expected to raise aggregate gross proceeds of a minimum of $14,000,000. Each Subscription Receipt will convert into one common share in the capital of MMTP Finco (each, an "MMTP Finco Share") upon the satisfaction of certain escrow release conditions, as described in more detail in the Company’s news release dated March 1, 2021.
The Offering is a condition precedent to the completion of the business combination (the "Transaction") announced by Oro X and MMTP on February 11, 2021. Concurrent with the completion of the Transaction, Oro X will also acquire all of the issued and outstanding MMTP Finco Shares pursuant to an amalgamation of MMTP Finco and a newly formed wholly-owned subsidiary of Oro X (the "Finco Amalgamation"). Pursuant to the Finco Amalgamation, the MMTP Finco Shares will be exchanged for common shares of Oro X (“Oro X Shares”) on the basis of one Oro X Share to be issued for every one MMTP Finco Share. The Oro X Shares issued pursuant to the Finco Amalgamation will not be subject to any hold period under applicable Canadian securities laws.
Proceeds of the Offering are expected to be used for mine development and exploration activities at MMTP's Recuperada Mine, and for general working capital. The Offering is expected to close on or about April 8, 2021.
