Enertopia Announces Intention to Complete a $1,070,000 Financing
September 24, 2013
Vancouver, BC - Enertopia Corporation (TOP) (the "Company" or "Enertopia") announces its intention to complete a non-brokered private placement financing, consisting of two separate offerings (1) 9,000,000 Equity Units at US $0.03 per unit, and (2) 80 Well Income Participation Units priced at US $10,000.00 per unit to raise gross proceeds of up to US$1,070,000 (the "Private Placement").
Each equity unit will consist of one common share in the capital of the Company and one non-transferable share purchase warrant, each full warrant entitling the holder to purchase one additional common share in the capital of the Company for a period of three years from the date of issuance, at a purchase price of US$0.05. Funds raised from the equity units will be used for corporate development and G&A
Each Well Income Participation unit will consist of two hundred thousand common shares at US 0.05 each in the capital of the Company and one Well Income Participation Unit. The well income participation unit allows the investor to receive 3.759% of the Net Revenue Interest from the well every month for the economic life of the well. Funds raised from the Income participation units will be used exclusively for drilling development wells at the Company's Pennsylvania Oil Project.
Robert McAllister, President, stated: "This creative approach at providing a potential long term revenue stream to income investors whereby they could still receive a monthly revenue cheque years after they recovered their initial capital outlay is unique to the investment community today. Normally one has to hold the underlying asset to earn income, with our new model this is not the case. The benefit for current and new shareholders is this above market financing reduces the potential amount of shares and warrants that would otherwise have to be issued in today's market place."
The Company will pay broker commissions of up to 10.0% in cash and 10.0% in broker warrants in connection with the Private Placement. Certain directors, officers and insiders of the Company may participate in the Private Placement.
The securities issued will be subject to a hold period in Canada of four months and one day, or for any resales into the USA under Rule 144, six months and one day. Proceeds of the Private Placement will be used for general working capital and for property exploration. The Private Placement will be subject to normal regulatory approvals.
The securities referred to herein will not be or have not been registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration requirements.
Enertopia's shares are quoted in the USA with symbol ENRT and in Canada with symbol TOP. For additional information, please visit www.enertopia.com or call Robert McAllister, President, Enertopia Corporation at 1.250.765.6412
