Victory Capital and Acapulco Gold Announce Completion of Subscription Receipt Financing

/NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES/

TORONTO, Oct. 14, 2021 /CNW/ - Victory Capital Corp. (TSXV: VIC.P) (the "Company" or "Victory"), a capital pool company ("CPC") pursuant to Policy 2.4 (the "CPC Policy") of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange"), is pleased to announce that further to its announcement on August 6, 2021, both Acapulco Gold Corp. ("Acapulco") and the Company have closed their concurrent non-brokered private placements of subscription receipts. Acapulco closed a private placement of subscription receipts (the "Acapulco Subscription Receipts") for aggregate gross proceeds of approximately $3.103 million through the issuance of 15,515,000 Acapulco Subscription Receipts at a price of $0.20 per Acapulco Subscription Receipt (the "Acapulco Private Placement"). The Acapulco Private Placement took place concurrently with the private placement of subscription receipts by Victory (the "Victory Subscription Receipts" and together with the Acapulco Subscription Receipts, the "Subscription Receipts") for aggregate gross proceeds of approximately $289,000 through the issuance of 1,445,000 Victory Subscription Receipts at a price of $0.20 per Victory Subscription Receipt (the "Victory Private Placement" and collectively with the Acapulco Private Placement, the "Private Placement"). The Subscription Receipts were issued pursuant to the terms and conditions of respective subscription receipt agreements entered into on October 4, 2021 between Acapulco and Odyssey Trust Company, as subscription receipt agent ("Odyssey"), and between Victory and Odyssey. 

The Private Placement was undertaken in connection with the previously announced Qualifying Transaction (as such term is defined in CPC Policy) (the "Proposed Transaction") between the Company and Acapulco whereby upon completion of a statutory merger between Acapulco and 1287878 B.C. Ltd., the amalgamated entity will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company (upon completion of the Proposed Transaction, the Company referred to as the "Resulting Issuer").

Upon the closing of the Proposed Transaction, the Acapulco Subscription Receipts will be automatically exchanged for one common share of Acapulco (a "Acapulco Common Share"), and subsequently each Acapulco Common Share will be automatically exchanged for one common share in the capital of the Resulting Issuer (a "Resulting Issuer Share"). For avoidance of doubt, each Acapulco Subscription Receipt will result in the issuance of one Resulting Issuer Share. Upon the closing of the Proposed Transaction, each Victory Subscription Receipt will be automatically exchanged for one Resulting Issue Share.

The Resulting Issuer anticipates that the proceeds of the Private Placement will be used to fund the exploration on two drill-ready high-potential copper-gold volcanogenic massive sulfide (VMS) properties (Riqueza Marina and Zaachila) in the state of Oaxaca, and a third high-potential gold property (El Rescate), and for general working capital purposes upon completion of the Proposed Transaction.

In connection with the Acapulco Private Placement, Acapulco paid aggregate fees of $230,240 and issued common share purchase warrants to purchase 1,186,200 Resulting Issuer Shares at a price of $0.20 per Resulting Issuer Share for a period of 24 months from the date of closing of the Acapulco Private Placement to certain qualified finders.

In connection with the Victory Private Placement, Victory paid aggregate fees of $23,120 and issued common share purchase warrants to purchase 115,600 Resulting Issuer Shares at a price of $0.20 per Resulting Issuer Share for a period of 24 months from the date of closing of the Victory Private Placement to certain qualified finders.

Cautionary Note

Completion of the Proposed Transaction is subject to a number of conditions including, without limitation, the receipt of all requisite regulatory approvals (including the approval of the Exchange), the approval of certain matters by the shareholders of Acapulco and Victory (as applicable) and other conditions that are customary for transactions of this nature.
