ALX Uranium Announces Strategic Investment and Uranium Partnership
ALX Uranium Corp. (“ALX” or the “Company) (TSXv: AL; FSE: 6LLN; OTCQX: ALXEF) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with Holystone Energy Company Limited (“Holystone”) for a three year strategic partnership.
Under the terms of the agreement dated March 7, 2016, Holystone will :
- subscribe to 12,500,000 common shares of ALX for a price of $0.06 per share for gross proceeds of $750,000. No Warrants.
- be granted by the Company the right for three years from closing of the private placement to participate in future financings for the next three years to maintain their pro-rata ownership interest in ALX.
- Appoint one representative to the Board of Directors of ALX, based on its intent to form a strategic funding partnership with ALX going forward.
This partnership will be the foundation for ALX to pursue a three year exploration strategy in the Athabasca Basin based on its current portfolio of properties, including its position in the Patterson Lake South district. It will also be the foundation to pursue new opportunities.
The Company is pleased that Holystone will appoint Dr. Howard Haugom to the Board of Directors, as Holystone’s representative. Howard Haugom is co-owner of Quilts Etc., a national linen retail chain and a partner at Burkehill Capital Corp, a Vancouver based private equity firm. He has taught extensively at Simon Fraser University, worked for both the private (Canadian Pacific) and public sectors (BC Treasury Board) as an Economist, and has been a consultant to the gold resource sector. Mr. Haugom received Economic degrees (specializing in international trade/finance and Resource Economics from the University of Victoria – BA and MA, 1984) and a PhD ( 1991) from Simon Fraser University.
Completion of the Private Placement, targeted for Friday, March 11, is subject to a number of conditions, including, without limitation, receipt of all regulatory approvals, including approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. Closing of the private placement may require two or more tranches in order to maintain an investment level of 9.9% until the Personal Information Form of the incoming Director and representative of Holystone have cleared Exchange compliance; once cleared, Holystone’s investment in ALX will remain below 19.9% unless ALX shareholder approval is obtained for a change of control.
The common shares issued or issuable pursuant to the Private Placement will be restricted from trading for a four month hold period in accordance with applicable securities laws and policies of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “Exchange”).
