OTTAWA, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 01/08/13 -- Interactive Capital Partners Corporation (TSX VENTURE:HFM.H) ("ICP"), a capital pool company, is pleased to announce it has entered into a non-binding agreement in principal (the "Agreement"), effective January 7, 2013, with Green Swan Capital Corp. (TSX VENTURE:GSW) ("Green Swan"), a publicly traded Toronto-based corporation incorporated under the Canada Business Corporations Act, for the acquisition of 100% of all rights, title and interests held by Green Swan in the Mikayla property (the "Property") in the Okanagan Valley in southeast British Columbia. The 1,144 hectare Property is comprised of four (4) mining tenures, one of which (approximately 518 ha) is subject to a 2.5% net smelter return royalty.
It is intended that ICP's acquisition of the Property will constitute its "qualifying transaction" (the "Qualifying Transaction") for the purposes of the capital pool company requirements of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") and to enable ICP to qualify as a Tier 2 Mining Issuer on the Exchange.
Under the Agreement, as consideration for the $418,650 purchase price of the Property, ICP will issue Green Swan approximately 5,266,429 common shares, at a deemed issue price of $0.07 per share, and make a cash payment of $50,000. The Agreement further provides that 500,000 common shares of ICP are to be issued, at a deemed price of $0.07 per share, to an arm's length party, as a finder's fee, subject to closing of the Qualifying Transaction. All securities issued in connection with the Qualifying Transaction, including the finder's fee, will be subject to a hold period expiring four months plus one-day from the date of issuance, in accordance with applicable securities law, and if required, the policies of the Exchange. In addition thereto, the common shares issued as partial consideration for the Property may be subject to the escrow requirements under Exchange policies.
The Property is located in the Similkameen mining district, approximately 15 kilometres south of Xstrata Canada Corporation's Brenda Mine, and close to the Crowrea and Empress properties, operated by the Nevada Clean Magnesium Inc./Goldrea Resources Corp. joint venture. The Property is comprised of the following four (4) mining tenures: #980311 (208 hectares), #848569 (518 hectares), #941104 (395 hectares) and #941100 (20 hectares). Green Swan recently conducted Phase 1 of its exploration of the Property by conducting an 209 kilometre airborne magnetic survey (100 metre line spacing), the final results of the which are expected to be received by Green Swan in January, 2013. Phase 2 of the exploration program is to commence in 2013 and will likely include soil sampling on the Property. Green Swan's expenses related to the Phase 1 and Phase 2 exploration programs are expected to approximate $110,000.
Under the Agreement, Green Swan will promptly engage an independent geological service provider to complete a report in accordance with National Instrument 43-101 - Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects ("NI 43-101"). That report will include a proposed budget for the exploration and development of the Property. Based on Green Swan's preliminary assessments of the Property, it is anticipated that the budget for Phase 3 exploration program will consist of drilling and evaluating core samples on the Property and that the budget for completion of this phase will be a minimum of $215,000. The Phase 3 program will be conducted post-closing of the Qualifying Transaction, such funds to be provided out of the proceeds of a Private Placement of ICP (as described below).
Concurrently with and conditional upon the completion of the of the Qualifying Transaction, ICP plans to complete an equity private placement that is expected to include the issuance of up to 7,857,143 common shares (some of which may be issued on a "flow-through" basis under applicable tax laws) at a price of not less than $0.07 per share for gross proceeds of up to of $550,000 (the "Private Placement"). The net proceeds of the Private Placement will be used to fund the costs of ICP's Phase 3 exploration program on the Property, funding the costs of the Qualifying Transaction and for general working capital purposes. A broker has not yet been retained in connection with the Private Placement. The Private Placement will be subject to certain conditions, including but not limited to the receipt of all regulatory consents and approvals, including that of the Exchange. All securities issued under the Private Placement will be subject to a hold period expiring four months and one day after the issuance of such securities in accordance with applicable securities law, and if required, the policies of the Exchange.
ICP currently has 6,000,000 common shares issued and outstanding and 500,000 stock options exercisable into an equal number of common shares at an exercise price of $0.10 per share. Upon completion of the Qualifying Transaction and the Private Placement, it is expected that ICP will have approximately 19,623,572 common shares (inclusive of 500,000 common shares issued as a finder's fee) and 500,000 stock options issued and outstanding. It is anticipated that new management and directors of ICP will be granted stock options upon closing of the Qualifying Transaction, in accordance with the stock option plan of ICP and the policies of the Exchange. Stock option held by those directors and/or officers of ICP resigning upon completion of the Qualifying Transaction will expire 90 days thereafter if not exercised.
ICP's current Board and management will continue until completion of the Qualifying Transaction. At closing of the Qualifying Transaction, it is expected that Roy Mlakar, Jim Rogers and Leigh Stewart will resign as directors and/or officers of ICP, to be replaced by nominees of Green Swan, subject to regulatory approval. Mr. Mark Maheu, a current director of ICP, will continue as a director of ICP, though he will resign from the offices of President and Chief Executive Officer at completion of the Qualifying Transaction.
The Agreement further provides that the parties are to enter a definitive binding agreement in respect of the Qualifying Transaction no later than February 12, 2013, with an anticipated closing date for the Qualifying Transaction to be on or about June 15, 2012. Completion of the Qualifying Transaction shall be subject to, among other things: (i) the receipt of all necessary regulatory approval, including the revocation of the CTOs (as described below); (ii) receipt of NEX and the Exchange approval; (iii) satisfactory due diligence review by ICP of the Property; (iv) receipt of a report completed in accordance with NI 43-101; (v) Green Swan's completion of the Phase 2 work program on the Property; (vi) completion or waiver of sponsorship requirements; (vii) closing of the Private Placement; and (viii) receipt of board of director approvals.
The proposed Qualifying Transaction is not a "Non Arm's Length Qualifying Transaction" as defined in under Policy 2.4 of the Exchange, and as such, ICP shareholder approval is not typically required, unless otherwise determined by the Exchange. However, as Green Swan will hold in excess of 20% of the issued and outstanding common shares of ICP on the closing of the Qualifying Transaction, the Exchange may, in its discretion, deem Green Swan to be "control person" of ICP under the Exchange's policies, and require that that ICP shareholder approval be obtained.
Sponsorship of the "qualifying transaction" of a capital pool company is required under the policies of the Exchange, unless exempt in accordance with such policies or is waived by the Exchange. ICP intends to apply for a waiver from the requirement to retain a sponsor in connection with the Qualifying Transaction, but there is no assurance that such waiver will be granted.
Except if the Exchange requires ICP shareholder approval, a filing statement in respect of the proposed Qualifying Transaction will be prepared and filed by ICP in accordance with Policy 2.4 of the Exchange on SEDAR at www.sedar.com no less than seven (7) business days prior to the closing of the proposed Qualifying Transaction. A press release will be issued once the filing statement has been filed as required pursuant to Exchange policies.
Trading of the common shares of ICP are subject to cease trade orders ("CTOs") for failure to file comparative audited Annual Financial Statements for the year ended December 2011 within the prescribed timeframe. The CTOs will remain in effect until such time as ICP files the required 2011 Annual Financial Statements, together with the interim unaudited financial statements for each financial quarter of 2012, and applies for, and receives, a revocation order from each applicable securities regulator. Upon revocation of the CTOs, it is expected that the common shares of ICP will remain halted by the Exchange pending receipt by the Exchange of certain required materials from ICP, including a filing statement.
All information provided in this news release related to the Property or Green Swan has been provided by management of Green Swan and has not been independently verified by management of ICP.
ICP intends to issue an additional comprehensive news release(s) in respect of the Qualifying Transaction and related ancillary maters, including upon the finalization of a formal binding agreement with Green Swan in respect of the purchase of the Property.
Completion of the Qualifying Transaction is subject to a number of conditions, including but not limited to, Exchange acceptance and if applicable pursuant to Exchange Requirements, majority of the minority shareholder approval. Where applicable, the transaction cannot close until the required shareholder approval is obtained. There can be no assurance that the transaction will be completed as proposed or at all.
Investors are cautioned that, except as disclosed in the management information circular or filing statement to be prepared in connection with the Qualifying Transaction, any information released or received with respect to the transaction may not be accurate or complete and should not be relied upon. Trading in the securities of a capital pool company should be considered highly speculative.
