JERICO ANNOUNCES PARTIAL REVOCATION ORDERS AND PROPOSED PRIVATE PLACEMENT
TORONTO, ON, CANADA, May 3, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Jerico Explorations Inc. (“Jerico” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it intends to complete a non-brokered private placement of up to 56,000,000 common shares of the Company (“Common Shares”) at a price of $0.00125 per Common Share, to raise aggregate gross proceeds of up to $70,000 (the “Offering”). The Offering is proposed to be completed pursuant to two partial revocation orders (each, a “Partial Revocation Order”) issued by the British Columbia Securities Commission (“BCSC”) and the Alberta Securities Commission (“ASC”) on April 27, 2021.
The Partial Revocation Order issued by the BCSC partially revoked a cease trade order that was issued by the Executive Director of the BCSC against the Company on March 8, 2013 (the “BC Cease Trade Order”), while the Partial Revocation Order issued by the ASC partially revoked a cease trade order that was issued by the ASC against the Company on June 10, 2013 (the “AB Cease Trade Order”; and together with the BC Cease Trade Order, the “Cease Trade Orders”). The Cease Trade Orders were issued against the Company as a result of the Company’s failure to file certain continuous disclosure documents.
The proceeds of the Offering will be applied towards, among other things, the following (i) accounting, audit and legal fees associated with the preparation and filing of the relevant continuous disclosure documents; (ii) filing fees associated with obtaining the Partial Revocation Orders and the full revocation order; (iii) legacy accounts payable; and (iv) working capital and general and administrative expenses. Completion of the Offering will allow the Company to prepare and file all outstanding continuous disclosure documents with the applicable regulatory authorities. Once those filings have been completed, the Company expects to apply for a full revocation of the Cease Trade Orders.
Each potential investor in the Offering will receive a copy of the Cease Trade Orders and each Partial Revocation Order, and will be required to provide an acknowledgement to the Company that all of the Company’s securities, including the Common Shares issued in connection with the Offering, will remain subject to the Cease Trade Orders until the Cease Trade Orders are fully revoked, and that the granting of the Partial Revocation Orders does not guarantee the issuance of full revocation orders in the future. In accordance with applicable securities legislation, all Common Shares issued pursuant to the Offering will be subject to a hold period of four months and one day from the closing date of the Offering. Further, Common Shares issued pursuant to the Offering may not be transferred until full revocation of the Cease Trade Orders, of which there is no guarantee.
The Company is a junior mining company that acquires and explores mineral resource properties such as zinc, copper, gold, silver, and other metals.
