Electra Announces Cancellation of Change of Control Private Placement
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA - Electra Stone Ltd. (“Electra” or the “Company”) (TSX.V: ELT) (FSE: 44E1) announces that the previously announced $2,000,000 private placement with Metath Investment Co. Ltd., a British Virgin Islands company controlled by businessman Liu Hai Jian of Shenzhen, China, has been cancelled.
The Company and the investor had signed a letter of intent and had verbally agreed on the detailed terms of the private placement, as disclosed in the Company’s information circular prepared for its shareholder meeting which approved the change of control, but the investor has informed the Company that it will not complete the investment. As a result of deeper discussions the Company and the investor were unable to reach mutually agreeable terms.
The Company will continue to carry out its business plan to export, sell and market British Columbia Jade to China. The Company successfully exported its first container of 18 tonnes of BC jade which arrived in China on October 21st, 2015. A second container of 18 tonnes is being prepared for export and is expected to ship to China in the coming weeks.
“Our first priority remains the same. To bring Electra into revenue generation through the successful sales of BC Jade to China – the single largest buyer of BC jade”, stated Mr. John Costigan, President and CEO of Electra Stone Ltd.
