Northern Graphite Announces Exercise of Warrants
Ottawa, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - March 25, 2021) - Northern Graphite Corporation (TSXV: NGC) (OTCQB: NGPHF) (the "Company" or "Northern") announces that 3,020,000 warrants that were due to expire on March 24, 2021 have been exercised at a price of $0.40 per share. The Company realized proceeds of $1,208,000 and its cash position currently stands at $4.9 million. The Company also owns 2,000,000 shares of Electric Royalties Ltd. with a market value of approximately $650,000 and it has no debt. Northern currently has 78,820,756 shares outstanding.
Gregory Bowes, CEO commented that: "The Company greatly appreciates the vote of confidence from existing shareholders who have increased their investment by exercising warrants." He added that: "While there has been an almost constant stream of announcements about the EV plans of major automobile makers and increases in lithium ion battery manufacturing capacity, they have said little about the substantial quantity of graphite that is required to actualize these plans. This needs to change because the production of synthetic graphite has a very large environmental footprint and both it and the natural graphite market are dominated by China. There are very few graphite deposits located in countries, and owned by companies, that can meet the highest ESG standards. Northern is one of them."
