NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 02/21/14 -- Tungsten Corp. (OTCQB: TUNG) ("Tungsten" or the "Company"), an exploration stage company focused on the evaluation, acquisition and development of domestic tungsten mining opportunities, is pleased to announce the closing of a common stock purchase agreement for a $3 million Equity Enhancement Program ("EEP") with a Magna Group affiliate fund, Hanover Holdings I, LLC (the "Investor"). The EEP allows, but does not obligate the Company to issue and sell up to $3,000,000 worth of the Company's common stock to the Investor from time to time, over the 24-month term of the purchase agreement.
The Company paid to the Investor a commitment fee for entering into the Purchase Agreement equal to $150,000 in the form of 2,065,177 restricted shares of the Company's common stock, calculated using a per share price of $0.072633, representing the arithmetic average of the three lowest VWAPs during the 10-trading day period immediately preceding the Closing Date.
In connection with the execution of the purchase agreement, the Company and the Investor also entered into a registration rights agreement, whereby, the Company has agreed to file an initial registration statement with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") to register an agreed upon number of shares of common stock, which shall not exceed 1/3 of the number of shares of the Company's common stock held by non-affiliates of the Company, on or prior to March 28, 2014 (the "Filing Deadline") and have it declared effective at the earlier of (A) the 90th calendar day after the earlier of (1) the Filing Deadline and (2) the date on which the initial registration statement is filed with the SEC and (B) the fifth business day after the date the Company is notified by the SEC that such Registration Statement will not be reviewed or will not be subject to further review.
In addition, the Company is pleased to announce that the Company has completed a $127,500 financing through a senior convertible note issued to the Investor, as previously reported on January 2, 2014.
The note is convertible 90 days after issuance, at the Investor's option into shares of the Company's common stock at a fixed conversion price of $0.0325. The Company has agreed to file a registration statement with the SEC covering the resale of the underlying shares of common stock that may be obtained by conversion of the note. Funds obtained through this financing will be used by the Company for general and administrative purposes, working capital, and to continue exploration activities on our Nevada property.
The note has an eight-month term and was issued with an initial principal amount of $127,500 for a purchase price of $85,000 (a 33.33% original issue discount). Under terms of the note, the initial principal amount of $127,500 will be reduced to the purchase price of $85,000 if the Company meets all of the filing obligations as detailed in the Form 8-K filing. The note accrues at the rate of 12% per annum and includes customary event of default provisions.
The Company also agreed to pay an initial fee of $4,250 to Garden State Securities upon execution of the convertible note transaction documents, an additional fee of $4,250 from the proceeds of the first draw down from the EEP, and an amount equal to 2.5% of the proceeds of each draw down from the EEP for its services in acting as placement agent in connection with the transaction.
Company President and CEO, Mr. Guy Martin, stated, "This financing positions Tungsten to execute on its current business objectives and expedite its value creation plans. We intend to put the proceeds of this financing package to work in a focused exploration and development program with the goal of validating our in situ reserves. We look forward to continuing our financial partnership with the Magna Group."
This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy securities. The securities to be offered and sold in the EEP have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act") or any state securities laws, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration, or an applicable exemption from registration, under the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
