Sundance Energy Engages Beaufort International Associates For Preferred Share Financing
Sundance Energy Corporation (“Sundance” or the “Corporation”) (“SNY”: TSX-V) (“SNYXF”: OTCQX) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with UK-based Beaufort International Associates Limited (“Beaufort”) as agent, lead broker and sole global book runner, on a best efforts basis, for the offering (the “Offering”) of preferred shares in the capital of Sundance (“Preferred Shares”).
It is anticipated that the Offering will be conducted on a private placement basis to eligible subscribers in the UK, Europe, Canada, Australia, and the United States for minimum gross proceeds of C$5 million and maximum gross proceeds of C$15 million.
The terms and conditions of the Preferred Shares and the issue price of the Preferred Shares (the “Offering Terms”) will be determined and agreed upon by Sundance and Beaufort. It is anticipated that the general nature of the Offering will be such that the Preferred Shares will have an annual dividend payment attached to them and the Preferred Shares will be convertible into common shares of the Corporation for a set period of time at a price above Sundance’s current market price. If Beaufort and Sundance do not agree on the Offering Terms on or before March 23, 2012, the agreement will terminate.
In addition to certain administrative fees, Beaufort will be paid a cash commission equal to 6% of aggregate gross proceeds raised from subscribers introduced by Beaufort and will receive non-transferable warrants representing 6% of the share capital that is placed with subscribers introduced by Beaufort. Any other proceeds raised from or through Sundance’s management will entitle Beaufort to receive a minimum syndicate management fee of 1% of this amount plus non-transferable warrants representing 1% of the share capital that is placed.
Completion of the Offering is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals (including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange). Sundance expects the Offering to close in April, 2012.
Sundance Energy Corporation is a junior publicly traded oil and gas company whose primary focus is exploring First Nation Lands in Western Canada.
