Ceylon Graphite Announces Warrant Exercise Incentive Program

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 14, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Ceylon Graphite Corp. (“Ceylon” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: CYL) (OTC: CYLYF) (FSE: CCY) announces today that it intends to amend the terms of 7,222,222 outstanding common share purchase warrants (the “Warrants”) due to expire on October 26, 2024 pursuant to a proposed warrant incentive program (the “Program”). The Warrants were issued in connection with a private placement of convertible debentures that closed on October 26, 2023, and are currently exercisable at $0.06 per common share.

The Program will commence on the date of TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV”) approval and will expire 30 days from the date of such approval at 4:00 p.m. (Vancouver time). For the duration of the Program, the exercise price of the Warrants will be amended to $0.05 per common share. If a Warrant is exercised during the term of the Program, the holder of such Warrant will receive for each Warrant exercised, at no additional cost, one common share purchase warrant (the “Incentive Warrant”), which Incentive Warrant will have an exercise price of $0.06 per common share and expire one year from the date of issuance. The Incentive Warrants will be subject to a four-month and one day hold period from their date of issuance. The proceeds from any Incentive Warrant exercised will be used to advance the Company’s graphite projects and for general working capital.

All Warrants which have not been exercised by the expiry of the Program will revert to their previous exercise price of $0.06 per common share. The Program is designed to encourage the early exercise of the Warrants. The Program remains subject to the approval of the TSXV.
