VANCOUVER, BC – October 20, 2011 – IBC Advanced Alloys Corp. (TSX-V: IB; OTCQX: IAALF) (“IBC” or the “Company”) has obtained a receipt for its final short-form prospectus filed in the Provinces of British Columbia and Ontario. The prospectus qualifies for distribution of an aggregate of (i) 10,000,000 subscription units (the “Subscription Unit”) at an issue price of $0.20 per Subscription Unit and (ii) 5,000,000 units (the “Unit”) at an issue price of $0.20 per Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of $3,000,000 (collectively the “Offering”). Euro Pacific Canada Inc., as the underwriter of the Offering, will also have an option, exercisable for a period of 30 days following the closing date, to purchase up to an additional 2,250,000 Units to cover over-allotments, if any, and for market stabilization purposes, for additional gross proceeds of $450,000.
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 Subscription 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 date 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 date one Unit at the Offering Price (“Subscription Privilege Two” and together with Subscription Privilege One, the “Subscription Privilege”). If the Subscription Privilege is exercised in full, the Company would receive aggregate gross proceeds of $2,000,000. There is no assurance that the Subscription Privilege will be exercised, or if exercised, will 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. In the event the Subscription Privilege is exercised in full, the Company intends to apply the proceeds to working capital and to purchase inventory. The closing of the Offering is scheduled to be on or about October 24, 2011, or such other date as the underwriter and the Company agree, and is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary approvals including final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
