Mint Announces Private Placement Closing


August 30, 2018 (Source) — The Mint Corporation (TSX-V: MIT) (“Mint” or the “Company”) announces that it has completed the sale of $305,000 of promissory notes at par.  This is the first closing of a private placement of up to $2,500,000 promissory notes, described in the Company’s news release of August 10, 2018.  Purchaser’s received 610,000 bonus warrants, each bonus warrant entitling the holder to purchase one common share of Mint for $0.20 at any time during the period ending August 30, 2019 (subject to acceleration as described in the earlier news release).

The private placement is a related party transaction under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 (“MI 61-101”) because $100,000 of promissory notes, and 200,000 bonus warrants, were issued to insiders and related parties under MI 61-101.  The private placement is exempt from the valuation and shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101.  Having regard to the exemptions, the Company’s desire to receive the subscription proceeds and the receipt of the related party subscriptions after filing the material change report following the announcement of the private placement, the Company believes that it was reasonable to close the private placement at this time.

The Company paid finder compensation of $4,000 and 8,000 finder warrants. Each finder warrant entitles the holder to purchase one common share of Mint for $0.20 at any time during the period ending August 30, 2019.

The bonus warrants and finder warrants are non-transferable. In addition, the bonus warrants, finder warrants, and common shares issued upon exercise of those bonus warrants and finder warrants are subject to a four month hold period which expires on December 31, 2018.
