Nurcapital Corporation Ltd. Announces Proposed Qualifying Transaction with Caravel Resources Corp.


Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - April 3, 2023) - Nurcapital Corporation Ltd. (TSXV: NCL.H) ("Nurcapital" or the "Company"), a capital pool company, is pleased to announce that it has entered into a letter of intent dated March 31, 2023 (the "LOI") with Caravel Resources Corp. ("Caravel"), a private company existing under the laws of the Province of Alberta. The LOI outlines the general terms and conditions pursuant to which Nurcapital and Caravel will effect a business combination and reverse takeover transaction that will result in Nurcapital acquiring all of the issued and outstanding securities of Caravel in exchange for equity in Nurcapital (the "Proposed Transaction"). The Proposed Transaction will constitute Nurcapital's "Qualifying Transaction" under the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange").

Terms of the Proposed Transaction

Pursuant to the terms of the LOI, Nurcapital and Caravel will negotiate and enter into a definitive agreement incorporating the principal terms of the LOI.

Prior to the completion of the Proposed Transaction, Nurcapital will split all of its issued and outstanding common shares (the "Common Shares") on the basis of approximately 1.24 post-split Common Shares for each one pre-split Common Share (the "Split Ratio") and change its name to "Caravel Resources Corp.". Pursuant to the Proposed Transaction, the shareholders of Caravel will receive approximately 21,000,000 post-split Common Shares. As set out further below, participants in a concurrent non-brokered financing of Caravel (the "Concurrent Offering") will, on closing of the Proposed Transaction, become securityholders of the resulting issuer (the "ResultingIssuer").

The final structure for the Proposed Transaction is subject to satisfactory tax, corporate and securities law advice on the part of both Nurcapital and Caravel. Completion of the Proposed Transaction is also subject to a number of other conditions, including completion of the Concurrent Offering, receipt of applicable regulatory approvals, including the approval of the Exchange for the Proposed Transaction, completion of satisfactory due diligence and the execution of a definitive agreement and related transaction documents.

Finder's Fee

In connection with the Proposed Transaction, Nurcapital has entered into finder's fee agreements whereby certain persons will be paid finder's fees in the aggregate amount of $200,000 ("Finder's Fees") on closing of the Proposed Transaction, in connection with introducing Nurcapital to Caravel. The Finder's Fees are subject to TSXV acceptance in accordance with the policies of the TSXV. Nurcapital shall pay the Finder's Fees via the issuance of 800,000 post-split Common Shares.


Nurcapital currently has 3,219,500 common shares and 95,850 incentive stock options issued and outstanding. Under the terms of the LOI, the issued and outstanding shares of Nurcapital will be split in accordance with the Split Ratio, which will result in approximately 4,000,000 Common Shares outstanding on an undiluted basis.

Caravel currently has 15,685,000 common shares issued and outstanding. Caravel is in the process of completing a seed financing round to provide the company with funds to complete near-term operations which will give the company initial cash flow prior to the public listing contemplated herein and the completion of the Concurrent Offering. Upon completion of this seed financing round Caravel will have 21,000,000 shares outstanding. Each Caravel common share will be exchanged for one post-split Common Share, such that, following the completion of the Proposed Transaction, the shareholders of Caravel (exclusive of the those resulting from the Concurrent Offering) are expected to hold, in the aggregate, 21,000,000 post-split Common Shares.

Assuming completion of the Proposed Transaction, but before giving effect to the Concurrent Offering, the Resulting Issuer is expected to have approximately 23,673,669 Common Shares outstanding.

Proposed Private Placement

It is a condition of the LOI that Caravel will complete the Concurrent Offering, which is expected to comprise a non-brokered private placement of securities of Caravel to raise gross proceeds of a minimum of C$1,500,000. Further details of the Concurrent Offering will follow at a later date.

Trading Halt

Trading in the Common Shares of Nurcapital is halted, and will remain halted, until the completion of the Proposed Transaction.
