November 10, 2019 – Lithoquest Diamonds Inc. (TSX-V: LDI) (“Lithoquest” or the “Company”) announces, that, subject to certain conditions, it intends to amend the terms of a total of 11,838,636 outstanding share purchase warrants (the “Warrants”) representing all of the warrants of the Company currently outstanding for which amendment to the terms is permissible under the rules of the TSX Venture Exchange.
All of the Warrants were issued in connection with Lithoquest’s “reverse takeover” transaction which completed November 23, 2017 and are set to expire on November 23, 2019. 2,350,000 of the Warrants are currently exercisable at $0.30 per common share (“Common Share”) and 9,488,636 Warrants are currently exercisable at $0.40 per Common Share.
Under the proposed amendments to the Warrants (the “Proposed Amendments”), the term of the Warrants will be extended to November 23, 2021 and the exercise price will be reduced to $0.15 per Common Share. In addition, the Warrants will be revised to include an acceleration clause such that the term of the Warrants will be reduced to 30 days (the “Reduced Term”) in the event the closing price of the Common Shares on the TSX Venture Exchange exceeds $0.15 by 25% or more for ten consecutive trading dates (the “Premium Trading Days”). The Reduced Term would commence on the third business day after the tenth Premium Trading Day.
The Proposed Amendments remain subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. In addition, in order to be effective, each of the holders of the Warrants must consent to the Proposed Amendments.
