Toronto, Canada, June 11, 2019 – KWG Resources Inc. (CSE: KWG; KWG.A) (FRANKFURT: KW6)(“KWG” or the “Corporation”) has applied for Canadian Securities Exchange approval for the private placement of a final tranche of $3,147,444 of debentures convertible at the option of KWG into units with a deemed value of $21 per unit (each a “Unit”). Each subscriber will receive an option to acquire an equal amount of additional debentures at any time within four (4) months from closing.
Each Unit is comprised of four (4) KWG.A multiple voting shares and four (4) multiple voting share purchase warrants, with each such warrant enabling its holder to acquire one further KWG.A multiple voting share from treasury upon payment of $7.50 at any time on or before December 15, 2019. The debentures bear interest at a rate of 12% per annum, accruing daily, compounding annually and payable at the earlier of maturity, redemption or conversion, in KWG.A multiple voting shares from treasury at their volume-weighted average price for the ten trading days prior to payment. The debentures secure repayment of the principal, plus interest earned thereon to the date of payment, plus a premium of 20% of the original principal amount payable immediately following issuance of the debenture by the issuance of Units with a deemed value of $21 per Unit. At any time and from time to time, KWG will have the right to redeem the debenture in whole or in part by payment in cash, or convert the debentures in whole or in part into Units.
All of the securities to be issued pursuant to this Private Placement are subject to a four (4) month hold period. Closing of the final tranche of the private placement will bring to a total of $6.5 million the value of these convertible debentures then issued (see: press releases #273 issued December 18, 2017 and #293 issued March 18, 2019).
