July 10, 2018, Vancouver, B.C. — Para Resources Inc. (the “Company” or “Para”) (TSXV – “PBR”) (WKN – “A14YF1”) (OTC – “PRSRF”) is pleased to announce that it has closed the Private Placement announced on May 24, 2018 in a third tranche of $315,000 or 1,575,000 units. Under all three tranches, the Company has issued 18,649,000 Common Shares and 18,649,000 share purchase warrants (each a “Warrant”). Each Warrant entitles the holder to acquire one common share of the Company for a period of 3 years at a price of C$0.30, subject to an accelerated expiry if the closing trading price of the Company’s shares is greater than C$0.40per share for a period of 10 consecutive trading days (the “Acceleration Event”). The Company will give notice to the holders of the Acceleration Event and the Warrants will expire 30 days thereafter. Two insiders of the Company participated in the Private Placement and subscribed to a total of 11,219,000 Units for proceeds of $2,243,800. All securities issued in the Private Placement are subject to a hold period of 4 months from the applicable closing.
Participation of insiders of the Company in the Private Placement constitutes a related party transaction as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 (Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions). Because the Company’s shares trade only on the TSXV, the issuance of securities is exempt from the formal valuation requirements of Section 5.4 of MI 61-101 pursuant to Subsection 5.5(b) of MI 61-101 and exempt from the minority approval requirements of Section 5.6 of MI 61-101. The Company did not file a material change report 21 day before this second closing of the Private Placement because the Company wished to complete the Private Placement in a timely manner.
