TORONTO, May 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Honey Badger Exploration Inc. (TSX-V:TUF) (“Honey Badger” or the “Company”) announces that it intends to offer for sale, on a non-brokered private placement basis, “flow-through” common shares of the Company (the “FT Shares”) at a price of $0.13 per FT Share and non-flow-through units of the Company (the “Non-FT Units”) at a price of $0.10 per Non-FT Unit for aggregate gross proceeds to Honey Badger of up to $2,000,000 (the “Offering”), with the number of FT Shares and Non-FT Units sold in the Offering to be in such proportion as determined by the Company.

Each FT Share will be issued on a “flow-through” basis within the meaning of such term in the Income Tax Act (Canada) (the “ITA”). Each Non-FT Unit will be comprised of one common share (issued on a non- “flow-through” basis) and one half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Non-FT Warrant”) with each such Non-FT Warrant being exercisable to acquire one common share of the Company at a price of $0.16 for a period of 36 months following the closing date of the Offering (the “Closing Date”).

The proceeds of the sale of the FT Shares will be used to incur eligible Canadian Exploration Expenses, within the meaning of such term in the ITA. The proceeds of the sale of the Non-FT Units will be used to advance the Company’s projects and for working capital purposes.

Pursuant to the Offering, the Company may pay finder’s fees of up to 7% of the gross amount raised from investors introduced by such finders, and may issue compensation options to such finders of up to 7% of the number of Non-FT Units and/or FT Shares sold to investors introduced by such finders.  Each compensation option will entitle the holder to acquire one Non-FT Unit of Honey Badger at a price of CAD $0.10 per unit for a period of 36 months from the Closing Date.

Any securities issued pursuant to the Offering will be subject to a restricted period of four months and one day from the date of issuance. The Offering is subject to the receipt of all required regulatory and TSX Venture Exchange approvals.
