VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA – February 23 rd, 2021: ALTAIR RESOURCES INC. (“Altair” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: AVX; Germany FRA: 90A; ISIN: CA02137W1014; WKN: WKN A2ALMP) Mr. Jeffrey Steiner, on behalf of the Board, is pleased to announce the closing of the Company’s non-brokered private placement financing (the “Private Placement”) announced on January 21st 2021. Altair issued 1,350,000 units (each, a “Unit”) of the Company, at a price of CDN$0.035 per Unit, with each Unit comprising one common share (a “Share”) and one share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”). Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase an additional common share at a price of CDN$0.05 for a period of five years from the closing of the Private Placement. Proceeds from the financing will be used for working capital purposes and payments to be made include TSXV filing and sustaining fees, balance of 2020 audit fees, reserve for 2021 audit fees, transfer agent fees, accounting fees, geological services and such other corporate costs. The financing will not be used to primarily make payments to management. All securities issued will be subject to a four month hold period from the date of closing. No finder’s fees were paid.
Related Party Transaction
Certain directors of the Company participated in the Private Placement and purchased an aggregate of 450,000 Units for aggregate gross proceeds of CDN$15,750. The participation in the Private Placement by the directors of the Company constitutes related party transactions pursuant to Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”). The Company is exempt from the requirements to obtain a formal valuation or minority shareholder approval in connection with the participation in the Private Placement in reliance on the exemptions contained in sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101, respectively, as the fair market value of the transaction does not exceed 25% of the Company’s market capitalization. The Company did not file a material change report containing all of the disclosure required by MI 61-101 more than 21 days before the expected closing date of the Private Placement as the aforementioned insider participation had not been confirmed at that time and the Company wished to close the Private Placement as expeditiously as possible.
