TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - July 18, 2016) - VENDOME RESOURCES CORP. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:VDR)(FRANKFURT:9VR), announces an increase of $126,000 in its previously announced proposed non-brokered private placement financing for aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of up to $516,000 (the "Offering") by issuing a maximum of 55,466,667 units at a price of $0.0075 per unit for maximum proceeds of $416,000, and 13,333,333 "flow-through" shares at a price of $0.0075 per share for maximum proceeds of $100,000. Each of the units will consist of one common share in the capital of the Company and one common share purchase warrant. Each warrant will entitle its holder to purchase one additional common share at an exercise price of $0.01 for a period of 3 years from the closing date of the private placement. There can be no assurance that the Offering will be completed, whether in whole or in part.
Due to the fact that the Offering is being completed by issuing securities at a price lower than $0.05 per security, the Company is required to obtain a waiver from the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") to proceed with the Offering. In order to obtain the waiver from the Exchange, the Company has agreed to seek the approval of its shareholders for a consolidation of the Common Shares on a ten to one basis (the "Consolidation") at the upcoming annual general meeting, which is scheduled for September 6, 2016. The Company is confident that it will receive shareholder approval for the Consolidation, and as a condition of the closing of the Offering, all subscribers of the Offering will be required to execute undertakings and proxies in favour of the Consolidation and the Company will provide the Exchange with proof that the Company has received approval from holders of more than 50% of the outstanding common shares in support of the Consolidation. If the Company is successful in obtaining shareholder approval for the Consolidation, it will immediately proceed with the Consolidation.
The Company anticipates that the proceeds of the Offering will be used to finance the Company's working capital requirements.
Completion of the Offering is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary approvals, including the approval of the Exchange and the securities regulatory authorities. All securities issued by the Company in connection with the Offering will be subject to a statutory four month hold period.
