TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / November 23, 2021 / Li-Metal Corp. (CSE:LIM)(FSE:5ZO) ('Li-Metal' or the 'Company'), a leading developer of lithium metal anode and lithium metal technologies critical for next-generation batteries, today announces that the Company will be accelerating the expiry of all of its outstanding warrants, pursuant to the terms of the warrant indenture dated September 7, 2021 (the 'Warrant Indenture').
On October 25th, 2021, Li-Metal issued a total of 10,500,000 warrants with an expiry date of October 25th, 2023 (the 'Warrants'), which are exercisable at the Canadian dollar equivalent of US$1.50, according to the U.S./Canadian exchange rate (the 'Exchange Rate') as reported by the Bank of Canada on the close of business the day before the closing of the reverse takeover transaction involving 2555663 Ontario Limited and Eurotin Inc. (the 'Transaction'). The Exchange Rate was determined by the Company to be CAD$1.2357 per US$1.00. Pursuant to the Warrant Indenture and as previously disclosed, the expiry date of the Warrants would accelerate if the volume-weighted average price ('VWAP') of the Company's common shares (the 'Common Shares') on the Canadian Securities Exchange (the 'CSE') was equal to or greater than the Canadian dollar equivalent of US$3.50 (calculated according to the Exchange Rate) over a period of five consecutive trading days on the CSE. Within 10 business days following such five-day period, Li-Metal would accelerate the expiry date of such Warrants by issuing a press release.
As the VWAP of the Company's Common Shares has exceeded the Canadian dollar equivalent of US$3.50 over a period of five consecutive trading days, Li-Metal now announces that the expiry date for the Warrants will be December 23, 2021. The Company will also provide written notice of such expiry date directly to all Warrant holders. If all Warrants issued by the Company are exercised, the Company will receive aggregate proceeds of CAD$19,462,275 in connection with the exercise of such Warrants.
To exercise the abovementioned Warrants, holders of Warrants are required to courier the following to the Company's transfer agent on or before December 23, 2021 at 5:00 pm (Toronto time):

- payment of the aggregate exercise price (CAD$1.85355 per Warrant) made payable to 'Li-Metal Corp.' by way of certified cheque, money order or bank draft.
Warrant holders should stipulate whether they would like to receive a certificate or DRS advice representing the Common Shares to be issued upon exercise of their Warrants. All documentation should be couriered to: TSX Trust Company, Attn: Corporate Actions, 301 - 100 Adelaide Street West, Toronto, ON, M5H 4H1.
