VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 08, 2022 – Anfield Energy Inc. (TSX.V: AEC; OTCQB: ANLDF; FRANKFURT: 0AD) (“Anfield” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has completed the settlement (the “Debt Settlement”) of US$18.34 million of indebtedness which was owed to Uranium Energy Corp. (“UEC”). The indebtedness was fully settled through the payment to UEC of approximately US$9.17 million in cash from the net proceeds of the Offering (as hereinafter defined) and the issuance to UEC of 96,272,918 units of Anfield (the “Debt Units”), which were issued at a deemed aggregate value of approximately US$9.17 million or US$0.095 (C$0.12) per Debt Unit. Each Debt Unit is comprised of one common share of the Company (a “Common Share”) plus one Common Share purchase warrant (each, a “Warrant”), with each Warrant entitling the holder thereof to acquire one Common Share (a “Warrant Share”) at a price of C$0.18 until May 12, 2027. The securities underlying the Debt Units are subject to certain resale restrictions. As a result of the Debt Settlement, UEC will become Anfield’s cornerstone shareholder, owning 15.4% on an outstanding basis and 26.7% on a partially diluted basis.
Anfield is also pleased to announce that it has completed the previously announced asset swap to exchange certain of its properties for properties of UEC (the “Property Swap” and, together with the Debt Settlement, the “Transactions”). Pursuant to the terms of the Property Swap, Anfield acquired UEC’s interest in the Slick Rock uranium-vanadium property (“Slick Rock”) located in San Miguel County, Colorado, in exchange for UEC acquiring Anfield’s in-situ recovery uranium asset portfolio in Wyoming. Slick Rock further consolidates Anfield’s position in the uranium-vanadium rich Uravan Mineral Belt, proximal to the Company’s Shootaring Canyon Mill.
Conversion of Subscription Receipts
As previous announced, on May 12, 2022, Anfield completed a bought deal private placement offering (the “Offering”) of subscription receipts of the Company (“Subscription Receipts”) co-led by Haywood Securities Inc. and Red Cloud Securities Inc. Each Subscription Receipt was sold at a price of C$0.12 for aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of C$15,000,000 and entitled the holder thereof to receive one unit (“Offering Unit”) comprised of one Common Share and one Warrant upon the satisfaction of certain conditions. Each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to acquire one Warrant Share at a price of C$0.18 until May 12, 2027. Upon completion of the Transactions, the conditions were satisfied, and the Subscription Receipts were automatically converted into 125,000,000 Offering Units. The securities underlying the Offering Units are subject to a statutory four-month hold period expiring on September 13, 2022 in accordance with Canadian securities legislation. The Company will seek to list the Warrants on the TSX Venture Exchange subsequent to the expiry of the hold period.
In light of the current high levels of equity market volatility, the Company has decided to indefinitely postpone the proposed consolidation of its Common Share capital.
