CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - July 10, 2008) -
Bridge Resources Corp. ("Bridge" or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:BUK) is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced bought deal financing (the "Offering"). Bridge, through Wellington West Capital Markets Inc. and Blackmont Capital Inc. (the "Underwriters"), issued a total of 28,440,000 units of the Corporation ("Units") at a price of $1.15 per Unit for gross proceeds of $32,706,000. Bridge expects to close on the balance of 2,000,000 Units within the next few days for additional gross proceeds of $2,300,000 (and in any event no later than July 18, 2008). Each Unit issued pursuant to the Offering consists of one common share of Bridge ("Common Share") and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant ("Warrant"). Each whole Warrant is exercisable for a period of 18 months following the closing of the Offering and entitles the holder thereof to acquire one additional Common Share at a price of $1.35 per Common Share. In the event that Bridge's Common Shares trade at a closing price on the TSX Venture Exchange of greater than $2.00 for a period of 20 consecutive trading days at any time after four months and one day after the closing of the Offering, Bridge may accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants by giving notice to holders thereof and in such case the Warrants will expire on the 30th day after the date on which such notice is given by Bridge. The securities issued pursuant to the Offering are subject to a four-month hold period. Following the completion of the full Offering, Bridge will have 131,077,890 Common Shares issued and outstanding.
