MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/20/14 -- Solimar Energy Limited ("Solimar" or the "Company") (ASX:SXS)(TSX VENTURE:SXS) is pleased to announce that, further to its previous announcements dated January 31, 2014 and February 3, 2014 concerning a non-brokered placement, it has issued a total of 9,335,385 units ("Units") at a price of C$0.065 per Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of $606,800 (the "Offering"). Each Unit is comprised of one (1) ordinary share of Solimar ("Share") and one half of one (0.5) right ("Right"). Each Right, upon receipt of approval by the shareholders of Solimar, entitles the holder to receive one warrant ("Warrant") to purchase one (1) Share at an exercise price of $0.065 for a 24 month period following closing.
Pursuant to the Offering, Canacol Energy Ltd. (the "Subscriber") purchased an aggregate of 4,720,000 Units for aggregate consideration of $306,800. Immediately following completion of the Offering, the Subscriber had beneficial ownership of, and control and direction over, an aggregate of 5,516,054 Shares, or approximately 9.64% of the Shares outstanding. Immediately following completion of the Offering, the Subscriber also had beneficial ownership of 796,054 warrants. If such warrants are all exercised, the Subscriber would have beneficial ownership of, and control and direction over, 6,312,108 Shares, or approximately 10.88% of the Shares outstanding. If and when the shareholders of Solimar approve the conversion of the Rights to Warrants under the terms of the Offering, and if all such Warrants held by the Subscriber are exercised in addition to the 796,054 warrants currently held, the Subscriber would have beneficial ownership of, and control and direction over, 8,672,108 Shares, or approximately 14.37% of the Shares outstanding.
The Subscriber acquired the Units for investment purposes. The Subscriber intends to review its investment in Solimar on a continuing basis. Depending on various factors including, but not limited to, Solimar's financial position, the market price of the Shares, conditions in the securities markets and general economic and industry conditions, the Subscriber's business or financial condition and other factors and conditions the Subscriber deems appropriate, the Subscriber may in the future take such actions with respect to its investment in Solimar as the Subscriber considers appropriate. The Subscriber may in the future acquire ownership of, or control and direction over, further Shares. The Units were acquired by the Subscriber pursuant to an exemption from the prospectus requirement of applicable securities legislation at Section 2.3 of National Instrument 45-106, based on the net asset value of the Subscriber.
