International Frontier Resources Corporation (“IFR” or the “Company”) (TSX VENTURE:IFR)(OTCQB:IFRTF) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an engagement letter (the “Engagement Letter”) with PI Financial Corp. (the “Agent”) to act as Agent on a “commercially reasonable efforts” basis to sell, on a private placement basis, up to 16 million common shares at a price of $0.28 (the “Offer Price”) for proceeds of up to $4,480,000 (the “Private Placement’).
The Company also granted the Agent an option (the “Over-Allotment Option”) which will allow the Agent to offer up to 2,400,000 additional common shares. The Over-Allotment Option may be exercised in whole or in part up to 48 hours prior to the closing of the Private Placement.

The closing of the Private Placement is scheduled to occur on or about February 21, 2017, or such other date as agreed to by the Company and the Agent. The proceeds from the Private Placement will be used for working capital, to fund the Company’s minimum work obligations under its previously announced license contract for the Tecolutla Block in Mexico (see News Release dated August 26, 2016) and to pay the expenses of the Private Placement.
To the extent that the brokered portion of the Private Placement is not fully subscribed for under the terms of the Engagement Letter, the Company may complete the balance of the Private Placement as a non-brokered private placement.
Pursuant to the Engagement Letter, in return for acting as the Company’s agent in the Private Placement, the Agent will be entitled to compensation in the following form: a 6% commission on the gross proceeds of the brokered portion of the Private Placement payable (a) in cash; or (b) in common shares issuable to the Agent at the Offer Price; or (c) a combination thereof.
The common shares will be offered by way of the Private Placement in each of the provinces of Canada except Quebec, and such other jurisdictions as may be agreed to between the Company and the Agent. The common shares issued in connection with the Private Placement will be subject to a statutory hold period of four months plus one day from the date of completion of the Private Placement, in accordance with applicable securities legislation.
The Private Placement will be exempt from prospectus and registration requirements of applicable securities laws.
