Vancouver, British Columbia – November 8, 2016 – Brazil Resources Inc. (the "Company" or "Brazil Resources") (TSX-V: BRI; OTCQX: BRIZF) is pleased to announce that, further to its press releases dated October 28 and October 31, 2016, it has further increased the size of its previously announced private placement (the "Private Placement") from aggregate gross proceeds of $6.0 million to $9.0 million, or 3,600,000 units (the "Units") at a price of $2.50 per Unit, as a result of strong interest received from existing and new investors.
The Company is also pleased to announce that it has completed the initial tranche of the Private Placement and has issued 2,580,732 Units for gross proceeds of $6,451,830 (the "Initial Tranche").
As previously disclosed, each Unit consists of one common share of the Company and one half of a common share purchase warrant, each such warrant entitling the holder thereof to acquire one common share of the Company at an exercise price of $3.50 up to three years after the issuance thereof.
The Company intends to use proceeds from the Private Placement to bolster its ongoing acquisition strategy and for general working capital needs.
Closing of the balance of the Private Placement is subject to receipt of all necessary approvals, including approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV") and receipt of definitive subscriptions. The securities issued under the Private Placement will be subject to a four month hold period from the date of issuance, in the case of the Initial Tranche, expiring March 9, 2017, in addition to any other restrictions under applicable law.
The Company also wishes to correct its press release dated October 31, 2016, which incorrectly stated that the term of the warrants is two years. The correct term is three years from the date of closing of the Private Placement, as previously disclosed in the Company's press release dated October 28, 2016 and as disclosed herein.
The Units, common shares and warrants, including common shares issuable upon valid exercise of the warrants, have not been, and will not be, registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "U.S. Securities Act"), or any U.S. state securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the United States, absent registration or an available exemption from the registration requirement of the U.S. Securities Act and applicable U.S. state securities laws.
THIS PRESS RELEASE SHALL NOT CONSTITUTE AN OFFER TO SELL OR THE SOLICITATION OF AN OFFER TO BUY, NOR SHALL THERE BE ANY SALE OF THE UNITS, COMMON SHARES OR WARRANTS, IN ANY JURISDICTION IN WHICH SUCH OFFER, SOLICITATION OR SALE WOULD BE UNLAWFUL.
