VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 11, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Search Minerals Inc. (TSXV:SMY) (“Search Minerals” or the “Company”): This press release is being disseminated as required by National Instrument 62-103 The Early Warning System and Related Take Over Bids and Insider Reporting Issues in connection with the acquisition of securities of the Company by InCoR Holdings PLC (“InCoR” or the “Acquiror”).

The Acquiror announces that, on July 11, 2018, Search Minerals closed its previously announced private placement (the “Placement”) and issued the Acquiror 4,000,000 units (the “Units”), comprised of 4,000,000 common shares (“Common Shares”) and 4,000,000 common share purchase warrants (“Warrants”). The Common Shares and Warrants were issued to InCoR at a price of $0.05 per Unit for gross cash consideration of $200,000.00. Each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one (1) additional Common Share at a price of $0.07 any time within 24 months of their issuance, expiring July 11, 2020.

Prior to the transaction, InCoR held: (i) 36,498,667 common shares representing approximately 20.3% of the issued and outstanding common shares (assuming no exercise of warrants), (ii) 9,186,321 warrants exercisable into 9,186,321 common shares, and (iii) debentures convertible in up to 11,041,666 units if held to maturity, such units being comprised of common shares and warrants, representing in aggregate of up to 22,083,332 common shares, (i) (ii) and (iii) together representing approximately 33.4% of the issued and outstanding common shares (assuming full exercise of debentures and exercise of all warrants held by InCoR).

After giving effect to the acquisition of the Units, InCoR owns an aggregate of 40,498,667 Common Shares in the capital of the Issuer representing approximately 22.6% of the outstanding common shares (assuming no exercise of Warrants), and Warrants to acquire up to an additional 4,000,000 Common Shares. Assuming InCoR exercised the Warrants, InCoR would own an aggregate of 44,498,667 Common Shares of the Issuer representing approximately 24.2% of the outstanding Common Shares (assuming no exercise of any other warrants), expressed on a non-diluted basis, and 35.3% assuming full exercise of debentures and warrants held by the Acquiror.

The Units were acquired on a private placement basis by InCoR for investment purposes and InCoR may, depending on market and other conditions, increase or change its beneficial ownership over the common shares or other securities of the Company through market transactions, private agreements, treasury issuances, exercise of convertible securities or otherwise.
