Aug. 26 - Closes First Tranche of Its Non-Brokered Private Placement and Announces Increase to $750,000: Increasing its previously announced private placement from 10M units to 15M units (see June 23, 2021 News Release).
The Company has closed the first tranche of the Private Placement with a total of 10,615,000 units being issued at a price of $0.05 per Unit for gross proceeds of $530,750. Each Unit comprises of one common share and one half of one common share purchase warrant exercisable for three years at a price of $0.07 cents.
The extension of the repayment of the Nebari Loan to December 2022 ($1.95M) and the repayment holiday to after December 2021, appeared to have had a negative impact on valuation. Perhaps the terms are at issue.
Upon repayment of the loan a repayment bonus will be due Nebari equal to 30% of the initially funded amount indexed to the increase in market capitalization from a base of $13,000,000, or the market capitalization in the event of a change of control of the Company within 180 days following repayment. The loan is secured against the Companies' assets.
Vendetta did announce a 10 holes drilling project in July and also entered into an option agreement to acquire 100% of Key Killer Bore exploration concession.
As customary another non-brokered private placement was conducted in the last six month. As usual, the proceeds are oversubscribed and the total amount increased. VTT.V also continues to settled debt by issuance of shares.
VTT.V continues to successfully raise funds above its initial targets which is positive. However, valuation continues to reflect the lack of activity with the Pegmont Lead-Zinc Project.
Both zinc and lead spot prices trajectory are not to be reflected in the share price. In addition, the amount of warrant is growing (i.e. another 15M at $0.07 cents up from 12.5M warrants at $0.09 cents from the previous financing) with very little to show for in terms of activity in the past 18 months.
In addition, results on the 10 holes from the 2021 drilling campaign have yet to be provided. In this context, the option to acquire the Killer Bore project seems overly ambitious given the financial obligations to Nebari.
As such, we are dropping coverage.
