Vancouver, British Columbia — DESERT MOUNTAIN ENERGY CORP. (the “Company”) (TSX.V: DME, U.S. OTC: DMEHF, Frankfurt: QM01) From the President of the Company.
Desert Mountain Energy Corp. (“DME” or the “Company”) announces it is exercising its right to accelerate the expiry of all of the 8,203,062 warrants (the “Warrants”) issued under its private placements which closed on October 2nd and 14th, 2020. The acceleration of warrants will require all warrant holders that wish to exercise their warrants to do so on or before the close of business 30 days from the date of this news release, being May 24, 2021 (the “Early Exercise Period”). Those warrants that are not exercised on or prior to the Early Exercise Period will be deemed void and of no further force or effect.
The Warrants are exercisable at a price of CAN$2.00 per common share
Depending on the number of Warrants exercised during the Early Exercise Period, the Company expects to: 1) receive gross proceeds of up to approximately CAN$16.4 million; 2) issue up to 8,203,062 million common shares pursuant to the exercise of Warrants.
Warrant holders who wish to exercise their Warrants will be required to deliver to the Company at Suite 510, 580 Hornby St. Vancouver, BC, V6C 3B6, by 4:30 p.m. Vancouver time, on or before May 24, 2021, the following:
- Duly completed and executed Warrant Exercise Form;
- Their original Warrant certificate;
- The applicable funds due to exercise their Warrants, payable to the Company by way of certified cheque, money order, bank draft, or wire transfer.
The exercise of the Warrants will strengthen the Company’s current cash position and provide the working capital to bring the Company’s objectives of being a fully vertically integrated helium production company further towards reality.
“The early exercise places the Company in a very unique position of not being restrained with possible negative impacts within the capital markets in a timely and efficient manner”, said Robert Rohlfing, the Company’s CEO. “These monies come into the Company without additional fees or commissions, therefore, all of the money directly goes to the Company. Furthermore, the Company shareholders benefit from no further share dilution outside of the current agreements. The Company has demonstrated judicious use of the funds generated from the 10/2/20 & 10/14/20 private placements. As of 04/07/21 the Company had in excess of $12,800,000 CDN in the treasury to facilitate all planned operational aspects. The additional approximately $16,400,000 CDN, places the Company in the position, which is extremely unusual for a junior resource company with tier 1 assets. We appreciate the continued support of our strategy to develop our assets.”
