SEPTEMBER 30, 2020, TORONTO, ON – Star Royalties Ltd. (the “Company” or “Star Royalties”) is pleased to announce the closing of its non-brokered private placement (the “Private Placement”), as previously announced on August 19, 2020.
Pursuant to the Private Placement, the Company issued a total of 120,890,400 common shares at a price of C$0.125 per share (the “Private Placement Price”) for gross proceeds of C$15,111,300. The over-allotment option on the initial C$13,500,000 Private Placement was exercised due to market demand.
Alex Pernin, CEO of Star Royalties, commented: “We are appreciative of the strong investor demand for this private placement. Having this financing oversubscribed is a clear endorsement of the team, and recognition of our growing pipeline of opportunities and differentiated business model. Shareholder alignment is a core value for our company, demonstrated by management and directors coinvesting over C$1.1M into this financing. We are well positioned with a cash balance of C$16.4M, and we look forward to commencing our going-public transaction in the very near-future.”
The Company plans to use the net proceeds from the Private Placement for the acquisition of royalty and streaming opportunities, for due diligence efforts, for its go-public transaction, as well as for general corporate and working capital purposes.
