TORTOLA, British Virgin Islands, May 26, 2022 /CNW/ - Sailfish Royalty Corp. (TSXV: FISH) (OTCQX: SROYF) (the "Company" or "Sailfish") is pleased to announce that, further to the Company's news release dated April 6, 2022, Sailfish, in combination with 1287398 B.C. Ltd. ("Pubco" or "Swordfish Silver"), has received a lead order commitment from Barnwell Investments LLC in connection with a private placement contemplated as part of the previously announced transaction with Pubco (the "Proposed Transaction").
The Proposed Transaction includes a private placement of 4,310,345 subscription receipts of Swordfish Silver (the "Subscription Receipts") at a price of US$1.16 per Subscription Receipt for aggregate gross proceeds of US$5 million (the "Offering"). Swordfish Silver may elect to increase the size of the Offering by issuing additional Subscription Receipts, subject to approval of the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV"). Each Subscription Receipt issued pursuant to the Offering will entitle the holder thereof to receive, upon the satisfaction of the Escrow Release Condition (as defined below) and without payment of additional consideration, one Common Share of Swordfish Silver (each, a "Common Share"). The gross proceeds of the Offering will be held in escrow pending, among other things, the completion of the listing of the Common Shares on the TSXV ("Escrow Release Condition"). If the Escrow Release Condition is met, Swordfish Silver anticipates that the proceeds of the Offering will be used to advance the exploration of the Commonwealth Silver-Gold Project (defined below)1 and for general corporate purposes. The Offering is subject to regulatory approvals, including conditional listing approval of the TSXV for the Common Shares.
The goal of the Proposed Transaction is to create a silver focused exploration and development company pursuant to the terms of a binding letter of intent (the "LOI") with Pubco. The Proposed Transaction is expected to result in the transfer of the Company's wholly-owned Gavilanes silver property located in Durango, Mexico (the "Gavilanes Silver Project")2 to Pubco in exchange for shares of Pubco (the "Gavilanes Acquisition"). Pubco also signed a binding letter of intent with certain funds managed by Wexford Capital LP to acquire the Commonwealth silver and gold property in Cochise County, Arizona (the "Commonwealth Silver-Gold Project"). Closing of the Gavilanes Acquisition is subject to, among other things, Pubco acquiring the Commonwealth Silver-Gold Project in exchange for shares of Pubco, a concurrent private placement, and receipt of conditional acceptance from the TSXV to have Pubco's common shares listed on the TSXV.
Paolo Lostritto, VP Corporate Development of Sailfish states that, "this lead order commitment as part of the Proposed Transaction is expected to catalyze a broader capital raise with funds going to advance both the Commonwealth Silver-Gold Project and the Gavilanes Silver Project. We believe both projects have significant exploration potential and are excited to begin dedicating funds and attention to their advancement. Specifically at the Commonwealth Silver-Gold Project, Swordfish Silver plans to follow up on geophysical work on untested low-sulphidation epithermal targets located under a thin colluvial cover."
