Vancouver, British Columbia, March 7, 2022 – (TSXV: BRZ) Bearing Lithium Corp. (the “Company” or “Bearing“) is pleased to announce the completion of its early warrant exercise incentive program (the “Program” as described in its press release dated February 1, 2022. A total of 400,000 common shares (each a “Share”) of the Company were issued upon the exercise of 400,000 previously outstanding purchase warrants (the “Outstanding Warrants“), providing aggregate gross proceeds of $69,000 to the Company.
For every Outstanding Warrant exercised, the holders of such Outstanding Warrant received one Share to which they were otherwise entitled under the terms of the Outstanding Warrant and one additional common share purchase warrant (each an “Incentive Warrant”). Each Incentive Warrant allows the holder to acquire one Share at an exercise price of $0.35 for a period of 24 months from the date of issuance of the Incentive Warrant. A total of 400,000 Incentive Warrants were issued pursuant to the Program. The Incentive Warrants include a warrant acceleration provision whereby the Company will be permitted to accelerate the expiry date of the Incentive Warrants if the closing price of the Company’s Shares on the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV“) trades at or above $0.60 for a period of ten consecutive days (the “Acceleration Event“). In the event the Company exercises the Acceleration Event (by disseminating a news release advising of the Acceleration Event), holders will have 30 days to exercise the Incentive Warrants, after which the unexercised Incentive Warrants will be void and of no effect.
Holders of 5,205,309 Outstanding Warrants issued on November 30, 2020 were eligible to participate in the Program. Following completion of the Program, there are 4,805,309 Outstanding Warrants available for exercise. For those holders of Outstanding Warrants who chose not to participate in the Program, the applicable Outstanding Warrants will continue to be exercisable on the same terms that previously existed.
The proceeds of the Program will be used for working capital purposes.
The Incentive Warrants issued are subject to a 4 month hold period from the date of issuance. The Program is subject to the final acceptance of the TSXV.
The underlying Shares received from exercise of the Outstanding Warrants and Shares to be issued pursuant to the exercise of the Incentive Warrants have not been, and will not be, registered under the U.S. Securities Act or any U.S. state securities laws, and may not be offered or sold in the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, United States persons absent registration or any applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the U.S. Securities Act and applicable U.S. state securities laws.
