Forsys Announces Non-Brokered Private Placement and Achieves Cost Reduction Targets for 2016 and 2017

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Aug. 15, 2016) - Forsys Metals Corp. (TSX:FSY)(FRANKFURT:F2T)(NAMIBIAN:FSY) ("Forsys" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has received commitments to raise $540,000 in gross proceeds and that excellent progress has been made in further reducing the fixed cost base across the organisation.

Non-Brokered Private Placement

The Company has received commitments to raise C$540,000 in gross proceeds by way of a non-brokered private placement of 10.8m units ("the Units") in the Company at a subscription price of $0.05 per Unit.

Each Unit will consist of one Class A Common Share ("Common Share") and one half of one Common Share purchase warrant that entitles the holder to acquire a new Common Share in Forsys at a price of $0.07 for a period of two years from the date of issue.

Proceeds from the private placement will be used to fund the Norasa Uranium project in Namibia, as well as for general working capital purposes.

Forsys has received a firm commitment from Leonardo Global Trading Ltd ("Leo"), the Company's largest shareholder, whereby Leo will subscribe for 8.8m Units. The Offering is expected to close on or about August 31, 2016. All securities issued through the private placement will be subject to a four-month and one-day hold period from the date of the closing. Completion of the private placement is subject to customary approvals and conditions. Finders' fees may be payable on all or a portion of the non-brokered placement. 

Cost Reduction Targets

The actual and projected cash costs from 2014 to end of 2017 are summarised in the following table:

Company Cash Flows - Actual and Estimates
    2014   2015     2016     2017  
CAD$M   Actual   Actual     Actual /Estimated     Estimated  
General and Administration   $ 1.3   $ 1.3     $ 0.9     $ 0.5  
Namibia Overhead   $ 1.1   $ 0.7     $ 0.2     $ 0.1  
    $ 2.4   $ 2.0     $ 1.1     $ 0.6  
Percentage Reduction from 2014           -15 %     -52 %     -76 %

Marcel Hilmer, Chief Executive Officer of Forsys commented, "The drawn-out recessed uranium market has necessitated significant cost reductions. However, the Company remains confident that the long term fundamentals remain in place for global nuclear power that will result in a material recovery in the price of uranium."

"All directors, senior management and staff have accepted substantial reductions in the cash component of salaries. The average cash outgoings for wages and salaries will be reduced by 87% from Q4 2016. The reductions in cash outgoings will be accrued and settled in shares pending customary approvals and conditions. These efforts will achieve a low burn rate, with less than $50,000 in outgoings per month from next quarter."
