Vancouver, British Columbia - (February 11, 2021) - Millennial Lithium Corp. (“Millennial” or the “Company”) (TSXV:ML) (A3N2:GR: Frankfurt) (MLNLF: OTCQB) is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced bought deal financing of 8,625,000 units (the “Units”) at a price of C$4.00 per Unit (the “Offering Price”) for aggregate gross proceeds to Millennial of C$34,500,000 (the “Offering”). The Offering was conducted by a syndicate of underwriters co-led by Cantor Fitzgerald Canada Corporation and Sprott Capital Partners LP as joint bookrunners, and including Mackie Research Capital Corporation (collectively, the "Underwriters"). The Offering included 1,125,000 Units sold pursuant to the full exercise of the Underwriters’ over-allotment option.
Each Unit consists of one common share of the Company and one half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole common share purchase warrant, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant is exercisable at any time prior to February 11, 2024 for one common share of the Company at an exercise price of C$4.80. It is expected the Warrants will begin trading on the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV”) on February 11, 2021 under the symbol "Ml.WT".
In consideration for the services performed by the Underwriters pursuant to an underwriting agreement dated January 27, 2021, the Company paid the Underwriters a cash commission of 6% of the gross proceeds from the Offering and issued to the Underwriters a number of broker options (the “Broker Options”) equal to 6% of the Units sold under the Offering (the “Broker Options”). Each Broker Option issued to the Underwriters is exercisable at any time prior to February 11, 2024 for one Unit at an exercise price of C$4.00.
Farhad Abasov, Millennial’s President and CEO, commented: “We are pleased to see increased institutional support after this financing round. The completion of the offering has strengthened our balance sheet, and with a solid cash position of about $50 million Millennial can accelerate some of its technical programs, including the ongoing pilot operations. The Company will also be in a strong position in continuing strategic partnerships and offtake negotiations with various parties.”
The net proceeds from the Offering will be used by the Company for development activities at the Company’s lithium properties in Argentina and for working capital and general corporate purposes, all as further set out in the Prospectus (as defined below).
