This press release is being disseminated as required by National Instrument 62-103 The Early Warning System and Related Take Over Bids and Insider Reporting Issues (“NI 62-103”) in connection with the acquisition of securities of Pacific Bay Minerals Ltd. (the “Company”) by David Schussler (the “Acquiror”).
The Acquiror announces that on July 20, 2022, the Acquiror purchased 2,857,145 units (“Units”) of the Company at $0.07 per Unit for an aggregate purchase price of $200,000.15 as part of a non-brokered private placement (the “Acquisition”). Each Unit consisted of one common share in the capital of the Company (a “Common Share”) and one common share purchase warrant of the Company (a “Warrant”). Each Warrant entitles the holder to acquire one Common Share (each a “Warrant Share”), at $0.10 per Warrant Share for 36 months.
Immediately prior to the Acquisition, the Acquiror owned 3,409,690 Common Shares representing approximately 20.17% of the issued and outstanding shares of the Company on a non-diluted basis and 643,000 Warrants of the Company representing approximately 23.10% of the Company on a partially diluted basis. Immediately following the Acquisition, the Acquiror owns 6,266,835 Common Shares representing approximately 25.82% of the issued and outstanding shares of the Company on a non-diluted basis, and 3,500,145 Warrants representing approximately 35.18% of the issued and outstanding shares of the Company on a partially diluted basis.
The Acquiror acquired the Units pursuant to the terms of a subscription agreement on a private placement basis. The Acquiror’s current intention is to hold the Units for investment purposes only and not with a view to materially effecting control of the Company. Depending upon market conditions and other factors, and subject to compliance with applicable law, the Acquiror may, from time to time, acquire or dispose of additional shares of the Issuer, in the open market, by private agreement or otherwise, or acquire interests in or enter into related financial instruments involving a security of the Issuer.
