LIBERTY LAKE, Wash., June 11, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hunt Mining Corp. ("Hunt" or the "Corporation") (TSX-V:HMX) is pleased to announce the board of directors is proposing to consolidate the Corporation's issued and outstanding common shares on the basis of one new common share for every ten old common shares outstanding or on the basis of such lesser consolidation ratio as may be approved by the board of directors and accepted by the TSX Venture Exchange. The consolidation will increase the Corporation's flexibility and competitiveness in the marketplace, and make the Corporation's securities more attractive to a wider audience of potential investors, thereby resulting in a more efficient market for the common shares.
The proposed one-new-share-for-ten-old-share consolidation would result in the number of issued and outstanding common shares of the Corporation being reduced from 146,494,823 common shares without par value to 14,649,482 common shares without par value. The effective date of the share consolidation will occur immediately after exchange approval.
The Corporation has arranged a non-brokered private placement offering for new capital. The non-brokered private placement intends to raise maximum aggregate gross proceeds of up to $1,125,000. It is expected the majority of the proceeds will be subscribed for by related parties to the corporation; however, the private placement is being offered to all current shareholders who had expressed an interest. The private placement is not expected to result in the creation of any new control persons or a change of control. The non-brokered private placement will consist of up to 15,000,000 million units at $0.075 cents per unit, (on a post-consolidated basis) consisting of one common share and one common share purchase warrant. Each share purchase warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one common share at a price of $0.125 cents, exercisable for a period of five years from closing. The proceeds will be used to fund existing exploration activities in Santa Cruz, Argentina and for general working capital purposes. All securities issued under the private placement will be subject to a four month hold period from the day of closing.
