Claim Post Resources Inc. Announces Non-Brokered Private Placement of Unsecured Convertible Debentures

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - May 17, 2017) - Claim Post Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:CPS) ("Claim Post" or the "Company") announces that it intends to conduct a non-brokered private placement (the "Offering") of unsecured convertible debentures (the "Debentures") for total gross proceeds of up to $3 million at a price of $1,000 and integral multiples thereof per Debenture.

The Debentures will have an interest rate of 10% per annum, compounded quarterly from their date of issuance and payable in arrears on maturity. The Debentures will mature on the date that is one (1) year from the date of issuance (the "Maturity Date"). In lieu of a cash repayment on the Maturity Date, the Company has the option to pay all or any portion of the principal and/or accrued interest by issuing common shares ("Common Shares") to the holders of Debentures at a deemed price of $0.055 per Common Share. 

The holders of the Debentures have the option at any time prior to the earlier of the Maturity Date, a "change of control" of the Company or the business day immediately preceding the date specified by the Company for redemption of the Debentures to convert the principal amount of some or all of the Debentures and accrued interest thereon into Common Shares at a conversion price of $0.055 per Common Share. Prior to the Maturity Date, the Company may at any time following the completion of a separate financing of at least $2 million for the purpose of developing the Company's "Seymourville Silica Sand Project" (the "Project Financing Date") at its option redeem all, or any portion of the principal and accrued interest on the Debentures at a cash price equal to all outstanding principal and accrued interest under each Debenture plus a redemption premium equal to either: (i.) an additional 5% of the principal sum if the redemption occurs within six months from the date of issuance of the Debentures; or (ii) an additional 3% of the principal sum if the redemption occurs after six months from the date of issuance of the Debentures. 

The net proceeds of the Offering will be used for the early repayment of existing shareholder loans owed to the Company in the aggregate amount of $417,328.22, the final payment to a third party on a quarry lease on the Company's "Seymourville Silica Sand Project" and for general working capital purposes.

All of the directors of the Company, being Charles Gryba, Lowell Jackson, John Assman and Richard Williams, will participate in the Offering in the aggregate amount of $376,308.59, thereby making the Offering a "related party transaction" as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 ("MI 61-101"). The Offering is exempt from the need to obtain minority shareholder and a formal valuation as required by MI 61-101 as the Company is listed on the TSX Venture Exchange and the fair market value of the Debentures to insiders or the consideration paid by insiders of the Company does not exceed 25% of the Company's market capitalization. No new insiders are anticipated to be created, nor will there be any change of control as a result of the Offering.

Closing of the Offering remains subject to final acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange. The Company may pay finder's fees in connection with the issuance of the Debentures under the Offering. The Debentures and the Common Shares issuable upon conversion of the Debentures will be subject to a statutory hold period expiring on the date that is four months and one day after closing.

The Offering will be conducted by the Company utilizing the "accredited investor" exemption of National Instrument 45-106 - Prospectus and Registration Exemptions and also other applicable exemptions available to the Company.
