First Nordic Announces Repricing of Warrants and Warrant Exercise Incentive Program

Vancouver, BC – June 13, 2024 – First Nordic Metals Corp. (the “Company” or “First Nordic”) (TSX.V:FNM, OTCQB:FNMCF, FRA: HEG0) announces that subject to acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV”), the Company intends to amend the exercise price of an aggregate of 7,689,579 outstanding common share purchase warrants of the Company that were issued as part of private placements that closed on September 15, 2022 and April 28, 2023, respectively (the “Warrants”). These were private placements of Gold Line Resources Ltd. (“Gold Line”) a TSXV listed issuer acquired by the Company in February 2024, when the Company was then named Barsele Minerals Corp. shortly after the acquisition, the Company rebranded to First Nordic.


The Warrants have a current exercise price of $0.34 and the Company intends to amend the exercise price to $0.29 following receipt of TSXV acceptance of the proposed repricing of the Warrants. All other terms of the Warrants will remain the same, including the expiry dates of September 14, 2024, and April 28, 2025, respectively.


In addition, the Company is pleased to announce a warrant exercise incentive program (the “Incentive Program“), pursuant to which the Company will offer holders of all of the above-noted outstanding Warrants the opportunity to exercise each of their outstanding Warrants between 9:00 a.m. Pacific Standard Time (“PST”) on June 14, 2024, and 4:00 p.m. PST on July 7, 2024. In return for the early exercise, each holder will receive one common share in the capital of the Company (each a “Common Share”) pursuant to the original warrant terms, plus as an incentive, one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, an “Incentive Warrant”). Each Incentive Warrant will allow the holder to acquire one Common Share at an exercise price of $0.40 for a period of two years following the date of the issuance of the Incentive Warrant. The Company anticipates issuing all of the Incentive Warrants on or about July 8, 2024, following conclusion of the Incentive Program. A holder may elect to exercise all, none, or a portion of their outstanding warrants.


Any outstanding Warrants remaining unexercised after 12:00 p.m. PST on June 30, 2024, will remain outstanding and continue to be exercisable pursuant to their existing terms, including the amended exercise price noted above if such amendment is approved by the TSXV.


Holders of Warrants who elect to participate in the Incentive Program will be required to deliver the following to the Company on or prior to 4:00 p.m. PST on July 7, 2024:

  • a duly completed and executed exercise form, in the form which accompanies the certificate
    representing the outstanding Warrants;
  • the original certificate representing the outstanding Warrants being exercised; and
  • the applicable aggregate exercise price (based on the amended exercise price of $0.29) payable to the Company by way of certified cheque, money order, bank draft, or wire transfer in lawful money of Canada.

The proceeds from the early exercise of the outstanding Warrants will be used to advance the Company’s projects in Sweden and Finland and for general working capital.


The Common Shares issued on exercise of the outstanding Warrants will not be subject to any hold period. The Incentive Warrants and any Common Shares issuable upon the exercise of the Incentive Warrants will be subject to a hold period expiring four months after the date of distribution of the Incentive Warrants. The repricing of the Warrants and the Incentive Program are both subject to certain conditions, including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary approvals, including the final approval of the TSXV.


Certain insiders of the Company are expected to participate in the Incentive Program and, as a result, the Incentive Program may constitute a “related party transaction” with-in the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Shareholders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”). The Company expects to rely on the exemptions from the formal valuation requirements of MI 61-101 contained in section 5.5(a) and (b) of MI 61-101 on the basis that the fair market value of the transaction with insiders will not be more than 25% of the market capitalization of the Company and no securities of the Company are listed on a specified market set out in such section, and the Company further relies on the exemption from the minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 contained in Section 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101 on the basis of the fair market value of the transaction with insiders will not be more than 25% of the market capitalization of the Company.
