Star Royalties Announces C$13.5 Million Non-Brokered Private Placement
AUGUST 19, 2020, TORONTO, ON – Star Royalties Ltd. (the “Company” or “Star Royalties”) is pleased to announce a non-brokered private placement for gross proceeds of up to C$13,500,000 (the “Private Placement”). Pursuant to the terms of the Private Placement, the Company will issue up to 108,000,000 common shares at a price of C$0.125 per share (the “Private Placement Price”). The Private Placement is subject to an over-allotment option exercisable in the sole discretion of the Company any time prior to closing to issue up to an additional 16,200,000 common shares for up to an additional C$2,025,000 of gross proceeds. (all references to “Private Placement” include references to any common shares issued pursuant to the over-allotment option).
Alex Pernin, CEO of Star Royalties, commented: “We are currently underwriting a sizeable gold stream on a construction-stage gold project, as well as acquiring a cash flowing royalty on a mineral sands mine, both located in tier-one jurisdictions. Additionally, we are continuing to progress our growing (currently >C$150M) pipeline of cash flowing and near-cash flowing precious metals opportunities.”
“From an ESG perspective, we are proud to have recently created the first-of-its-kind carbon sequestration royalty in northwestern Ontario. We look forward to developing other green-focused investments and expanding our First Nations partnerships over the coming months.”
“This equity offering represents an opportunity to co-invest with management at a discounted pre-IPO valuation prior to numerous potential re-rating catalysts as Star Royalties converts its pipeline to a royalty and stream portfolio. We also expect to announce the commencement of our going-public transaction in the near-future.”
The Company plans to use the net proceeds from the Private Placement for the due diligence and acquisition of royalty and streaming opportunities, as well as for general corporate and working capital purposes.
