Permex Petroleum Announces Convertible Debenture Financing


VANCOUVER, BC, February 28, 2024 – Permex Petroleum Corporation (CSE: OIL) (OTC Pink: OILCF) (FSE: 75P) ("Permex" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company intends to complete a private placement (the “Offering”) of convertible debenture units of the Company (the “Units”) for gross proceeds of up to US$[20,000,000]. Each Unit will consist of one convertible debenture (a “Debenture”) in the principal amount of US$1,000 and [one] common share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”). Each Warrant will be exercisable for a period of 24 months from the date of issuance for one common share of the Company (a “Share”) at an exercise price equal to 120% of the market price of the Shares on the Canadian Securities Exchange (the “Exchange”) at the time of issuance of the Units.

The Debentures will mature (the “Maturity Date”) on the earlier of: (i) one-year from the date of issuance or (ii) three-months from the date of issuance if the Company does not enter into a securities exchange, unit purchase or merger agreement with a third party to the reasonable satisfaction of a majority of the holders of Debentures. The Debentures will bear simple interest at a rate of 10%, payable on the Maturity Date or the date on which all or any portion of the Debenture is repaid. Interest will be paid in cash or Shares based on a conversion price of US$3.41 (the “Conversion Price”), subject to Exchange approval.

At any time during the Term, a holder of Debentures may elect to convert the outstanding principal and any accrued and unpaid interest thereon into Shares at the Conversion Price. The Debentures will automatically convert into Shares at the Conversion Price in the event the Company completes a financing of Shares for aggregate gross proceeds of at least US$7,500,000.

The proceeds of the Offering are expected to be used for general working capital purposes as well as potential mergers and acquisitions. ThinkEquity LLC is advisor to Permex in pursuing strategic alternatives.

The Units being offered in the Offering will be offered only to persons who either qualify as an “accredited investor” as defined in Rule 501(a) of Regulation D under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “U.S. Securities Act”) or who are located outside of the United States and are not a “U.S. person” as defined in Regulation S under the U.S. Securities Act. In connection with the Offering, the Company may pay finders’ fees as permitted by the policies of the Exchange. All securities issued pursuant to the Offering and underlying securities will be subject to a four-month hold period from the date of issuance pursuant to applicable Canadian securities laws, in addition to such other restrictions as may apply under applicable securities laws of jurisdictions outside of Canada.

None of the securities to be offered in the Offering or the underlying securities have been registered under the U.S. Securities Act or under any U.S. state securities laws and may not be offered or sold absent registration or any applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the U.S. Securities Act and applicable U.S. state securities laws.
