Critical Minerals & Rare Earths

June 3, 2024 (Source) — Scandium Canada Ltd. (TSXV: SCD) (OTC: SCDCF) (the “Corporation”) announces that it is offering rights (the “Rights Offering”) to eligible holders of its common shares (the “Common Shares”) of record at the close of business on June 10, 2024 (the “Record Date”).

Pursuant to the Rights Offering, each holder of Common Shares resident in a province or territory in Canada (the “Qualified Jurisdictions”) will receive one right (a “Right”) for each Common Share held. Each whole Right will entitle the holder to subscribe for 0.426614 of a unit (a “Rights Unit”). Holders will need to exercise 2.344039 Rights to acquire one Rights Unit. Each Rights Unit will consist of one Common Share (a “Unit Share”) and one transferable Common Share purchase warrant (a “Unit Warrant”). Each Unit Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase, subject to adjustment in certain circumstances, one Common Share at a price of $0.05 per Common Share for a period of 24 months from the date of issuance.

A holder of Rights must pay $0.0325 (the “Subscription Price”) to purchase one Right Unit. No fractional Rights Units, fractional Unit Shares or fractional Unit Warrants will be issued and, where the exercise of Rights would otherwise entitle the holder of Rights to a fractional Rights Unit, fractional Unit Share or fractional Unit Warrant, the holder’s entitlement will be reduced to the next lowest whole number of Rights Unit, Unit Share or Unit Warrant, as applicable, and no cash or other consideration will be paid in lieu thereof.

The Corporation expects to raise gross proceeds of up to $3 million from the Rights Offering and intends to use the net proceeds of the Rights Offering to fund the completion of 500 kg metallurgical test, its baseline environmental studies at Crater Lake and for market development and administrative purposes.

The Rights will trade on the TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV”) under the symbol SCD.RT commencing on June 10, 2024. Holders of Common Shares purchased on or following the Record Date will not be entitled to receive Rights under the Rights Offering. The Rights Offering expires at 4:00 p.m. (Montréal time) (the “Expiry Time”) on July 5, 2024. Rights are exercisable until the Expiry Time, after which time unexercised Rights will be void and of no value.

Shareholders who fully exercise their Rights under their Basic Subscription Privilege will also be entitled to subscribe for additional Rights Units, if available as a result of unexercised Rights prior to the Expiry Time, subject to certain limitations set out in the offering circular (the “Circular”) including a pro rata distribution if more additional Rights Units are subscribed for than are available.

Further details of the Rights Offering are contained in the Circular, which will be filed on SEDAR+ under the Corporation’s profile at on or about June 6, 2024. There are currently 216,372,826 Common Shares outstanding.

Standby Commitment Agreement

In connection with the Rights Offering, the Corporation has entered on May 31, 2024, into a standby commitment agreement (the “Standby Agreement”) with standby purchasers (the “Standby Purchasers”). Pursuant to the Standby Agreement up to $1,000,000 of the Rights Offering has been guaranteed by Standby Purchasers, assuming the fulfilment of all closing conditions to the Standby Purchase Agreement (the “Standby Commitment”).

Subject to completion of the Rights Offering and performance by Standby Purchasers of their obligations under the Standby Agreement, but irrespective of whether the Standby Purchaser is actually required to purchase any Rights Shares available as a result of any unexercised Rights under the Rights Offering, in consideration solely for the Standby Commitment, the Corporation agreed to issue an aggregate of 7,692,307 non-transferable warrants (the “Bonus Warrants”), entitling the holder thereof to purchase an aggregate of 7,692,307 Common Shares at an exercise price of $0.05 per Common Share. Each Bonus Warrant will expire five years after the date of the closing of the Rights Offering.

Completion of the Rights Offering is subject to regulatory final approval, including the approval of the TSXV.

This new release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy any of the securities in the United States. The securities 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 state securities laws and may not be offered or sold within the United States or to U.S. Persons unless registered under the U.S. Securities Act and applicable state securities laws or an exemption from such registration is available.
