VANCOUVER, BC – September
, 2011 – IBC Advanced Alloys Corp. (TSX.V:IB) (“IBC” or the “Company”) has amended the terms of its previously announced bought deal financing with Euro Pacific Canada Inc. (“Euro Pacific Canada”) to increase the size of the offering from $2.5 million to $3.0 million. Under the amended terms of the offering Euro Pacific Canada has agreed to purchase an additional 2,500,000 equity units (“Equity Units”) at $0.20 per Unit, on a bought deal basis, resulting in an overall offering of (i) 10,000,000 units
The Units and Equity Units to be issued under the Offering will be offered by way of a short form prospectus in all of the provinces in Canada except Quebec and in the United States on a private placement basis pursuant to an exemption from the registration requirements of the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended.
Each Unit consists of one common share (“Common Share”) in the capital of IBC and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant a “Warrant”). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to acquire one Common Share at a price of $0.25 for a period of 24 months from the Closing Date.
Each Equity Unit consists of (i) one Unit, (ii) one-half of one subscription right, with each whole right giving the holder the right, but not the obligation, to purchase on the date that is 30 calendar days from the Closing one Unit at the Offering Price (“Subscription Privilege One”); and (iii) one-half of one subscription right, with each whole right giving the holder the right, but not the obligation, to purchase on the date that is 60 calendar days from the Closing one Unit at the Offering Price (“Subscription Privilege Two” and together with Subscription Privilege One, the “Subscription Privilege”). If the Subscription Privilege were exercised in full, the Company would receive aggregate gross proceeds of $2,000,000. There is no assurance that the Subscription Privilege would be exercised, or if exercised, would be exercised in full.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the prospectus to strengthen IBC’s balance sheet by paying down notes payable, and if funds permit, for adding inventory and general working capital purposes. The closing of the offering is scheduled to be on or about October 24, 2011 and is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary approvals including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
