As part of the financing, Avrupa issued Finder's warrants, entitling the holder to purchase up to 152,600 Units for a period of 36 months from issue at $0.25 per Unit. The Company also paid a cash finder's fee of $27,250. The securities issued are subject to a four-month hold period, expiring on December 21, 2014. Insiders participated in the offering for a total of 735,000 Units.
Mark T. Brown, a director, commented, "Avrupa is pleased with the continued strong support shown by the core strategic shareholder group including insiders, Callinan, and certain individual investors. With this financing completed, the Company is in a strong position to look for more strategic partners to advance its other properties, along with the three joint-venture partners' programs and the exploration alliance with Callinan."
Avrupa now has 43,373,571 common shares outstanding upon completion of this financing.
