VICTORIA, BC / ACCESSWIRE / April 18, 2023 / Boron One Holdings Inc. ("Boron One" or the "Company") (TSXV:BONE), an international mineral exploration and development company, is pleased to report that it has agreed with Osmose Ltd. ("OL") to amend certain terms of the Letter of Intent (the "LOI"), which was previously reported by the Company in a press release dated January 31, 2023. The agreed upon amendment to the LOI reflects the improving fundamentals of the Company's Piskanja Boron Project since the parties negotiated the original terms of the LOI.
The majority of the terms in the LOI remain unchanged, including the terms, conditions, timing and amount of project level funding to be provided by OL, totaling Euro22,000,000 in two tranches, in return for a 45 percent interest in the Piskanja Boron Project.
The following is the agreed upon amendment to the original LOI:
The Parties hereto agree that OL shall subscribe to:
35,500,000 units of Boron One at a total cost of CAD$4,260,000 (CAD$0.12 per unit) (the "Unit Purchase").
Each unit shall consist of 1 common share and 1 share purchase warrant.
Each warrant is exercisable into one additional share of Boron One at a price of CAD$0.24.
Each warrant shall have a 2-year expiration term from the date of grant.
OL may exercise warrants, if and only if, in doing so, OL remains at below 19.9% ownership of Boron One.
OL shall complete the Unit Purchase on or before close of business (PST) April 30, 2023.
In the event OL fails to complete the Unit Purchase on or before the close of business (PST) April 30, 2023, the terms of the Equity Unit Purchase shall amend as follows:
The Parties hereto agree that OL shall subscribe to:
i. 35,500,000 units of Boron One at the GREATER of EITHER CAD$0.12 per unit OR "X" per unit (the "Unit Purchase"). [where X= the closing price for Boron One on the TSXV Exchange on the day prior to when funds, which are sufficient for the Unit Purchase, are confirmed to be sent by OL, MULTIPLIED by 1.25]
ii. Each unit shall consist of 1 common share and 1 share purchase warrant.
iii. Each warrant is exercisable into one additional share of Boron One at a price of the GREATER of EITHER CAD$0.24 OR "Y". [where Y = the price per unit MULTIPLIED by 2]
iv. Each warrant shall have a 2-year expiration term from the date of grant.
v. OL may exercise warrants, if and only if, in doing so, OL remains at below 19.9% ownership of Boron One.
Notwithstanding, Boron One is under no obligation to accept Unit Purchase funds from OL after April 30, 2023.
The parties continue to work diligently towards completing the definitive agreement, based upon the terms found in the LOI. Please refer to the Company's press release of January 31, 2023 for all the key terms of the LOI between the parties.
Completion of this transaction is subject to several conditions, including, but not limited to, Exchange acceptance.
