Wallbridge Mining (WM) has completed a bought deal offering after raising C$63.8 million in gross proceeds.
Through the offering, the company issued an aggregate 55.5 million of its common shares, at a price of $1.15 per share.
Some of those shares were issued as a result of the underwriters partially exercising the over-allotment option. The underwriters consisted of the lead underwriter and sole bookrunner BMO Nesbitt Burns Inc, along with Eight Capital, RBC Dominion Securities Inc, and Paradigm Capital Inc.
By exercising the over-allotment option, the underwriters acquired 6.5 million common shares in Wallbridge, also at a price of $1.15 per share.
Wallbridge Mining’s fellow TSX-listed mining company, Kirkland Lake Gold (KL) also participated in the company’s bought deal offering. In total, Kirkland acquired 20 million common shares in Wallbridge, in order to increase its ownership interest in the company to approximately 9.9 per cent.
Kirkland’s interest in the company was increased on a non-diluted basis, in accordance with certain non-dilution rights. These rights were granted to Kirkland through the terms of a participation agreement between the two companies back in December of 2019.
The underwriters were paid a five per cent cash commission on the offering’s gross proceeds, although this did not include Kirkland’s participation.
The $63.8 million in gross proceeds from the offering will be used to continue the advancement of Wallbridge’s Fenelon Gold Project. Some funds may also go towards to the company’s general corporate purposes.
Wallbridge Mining (WM) is down 1.89 per cent and is trading at $1.04 per share, as of 11:25am EDT.
