LONDON, Feb. 25, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Americas Diamond Corp. (OTCBB:ADMC) ("Americas Diamond" or "the Company") is pleased to announce the Company has already drawn $245,000 from the recently executed equity financing agreement.
The Company has received the draw-down under the terms of the equity investment agreement that does not include any debt financing and facilitates funding of up to $5,000,000.
Under the terms of the agreement the Company shall issue restricted common shares of the Company at Unit Price. The Unit Price means a price equal to the 95% of the volume-weighted average of the closing price of Common Stock, for the ten (10) days immediately preceding the date of the Notice. Each unit shall consist of one share (restricted) of the common stock of the Company and one share purchase warrant (each a 'Warrant'). Each Warrant shall entitle the Subscriber to purchase one additional share of Common Stock, at an exercise price equal to 110% of the Unit Price, at which the Unit containing the Warrant being exercised was issued, for a period of two (2) years from the date such Warrant is issued.
The funds have been drawn to support general working capital and payments for the plant and equipment as a result of the Company's recently executed letter of intent to acquire SUDAM Diamonds Ltd. The plant and equipment consists of a 3-stage treatment plant, 50-70tph scrubber, 10tph DMS plant and X-Ray final recovery section being the only diamond recovery plant of its type in Venezuela.
The funds from the financing agreement are also expected to fund the Company's recently announced bulk-sampling program.
