Jura Announces Closing of Previously Announced US$3 Million Debenture Placement and Additional US$500,000 Debenture Placement

CALGARY, Alberta, May 21, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jura Energy Corporation (“Jura” or the “Company”) today announced that it has completed its previously announced US$3 million private placement of units pursuant to which the Company issued US$3 million principal amount of 11% secured subordinated debentures due on April 30, 2020 (“Debentures”) and 600,000 warrants (“Warrants”) to purchase one common share in the share capital of Jura (a “Common Share”) at an exercise price of $0.15 per Common Share (the “Offering”). A further 50,000 Warrants were also issued to ARK Point Advisors FZE, which acted as strategic and financial advisor for Jura in connection with the Offering.

Jura also announced today that it has completed a further US$500,000 private placement of units (the “Additional Offering”) comprising US$500,000 principal amount of Debentures and 100,000 Warrants exercisable into 100,000 Common Shares, representing approximately 0.14% of the issued and outstanding Common Shares as of the date hereof. The Warrants are subject to customary anti-dilution adjustments, including adjustments upon the payment of a dividend in Common Shares, subdivision or combination of the Common Shares, or the issuance of rights, options or warrants to all or substantially all holders of the outstanding Common Shares. Each Warrant will expire on the earlier of: (a) April 30, 2020; (b) the 90th day following the redemption by Jura of all remaining outstanding Debentures issued to the holder of such Warrants; and (c) the tenth business day following the date on which notice is given by Jura to the subscriber of the Warrants that, during a consecutive 30-day period ending not more than five business days prior to the date of such notice, the closing price of the Common Shares on the TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV”) exceeded $0.30 on each trading day.

The Additional Offering was negotiated at arm’s length with a private arm’s length investor and will not affect control of Jura. The funds will be used to repay existing indebtedness.

The TSXV has issued conditional approval for the listing of Common Shares issuable on the exercise of Warrants issued pursuant to the Offering and the Additional Offering. The Warrants constitute a “loan bonus” pursuant to TSXV Policy 5.1 – Loans, Bonuses, Finder’s Fees and Commissions and remain subject to TSXV acceptance.

The statutory hold periods for securities issued pursuant to the Offering and the Additional Offering will expire on September 19, 2018; however, neither the Debentures nor the Warrants are transferrable without the prior consent of Jura.
