Vancouver, BC - February 28, 2014: Kiska Metals Corporation ("Kiska" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has closed the previously announced private placement financing of 15,000,000 units (the "Units") of the Company, at a price of $0.10 per Unit for gross proceeds of $1.5 million.
Each Unit consisted of one common share of the Company (a "Common Share") and one transferable common share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional Common Share for three years, at a price of $0.15. If, after June 28, 2014, the closing price of the Common Shares on the TSX Venture Exchange is higher than $0.30 for 20 consecutive trading days then on the date that is the 20th consecutive trading day (the "Acceleration Trigger Date") the expiry date of the Warrants will be accelerated to the date that is 20 business days after the Acceleration Trigger Date, provided the Company issues a news release announcing the acceleration of the expiry date and sends written notice to the Warrant holder advising of the new expiry date.
Kiska intends to use the funds raised to pursue a number of business opportunities, as well as for general corporate purposes. A finder's fee was paid that consisted of 1,050,000 Units, representing a commission of 7% of the Units sold to investors introduced by finders, and 1,050,000 non-transferable share purchase warrants ("Compensation Warrants"). The Compensation Warrants permit the purchase of one Common Share for two years at a price of $0.10.
All securities issued in connection with the private placement are subject to a four month Canadian hold (restricted resale) period that expires, with respect to resales in Canada, on June 29, 2014.
