ITEM 8.01 Other Events

 

Effective December 3, 2021, Solitario Zinc Corp. (the “Company”) entered into agreements with investors for the purchase and sale of an aggregate of 3,100,000 shares of common stock of the Company (the “Shares”), at a price of $0.50 per share (the “Offering”). The Company did not engage an underwriter or placement agent for the Offering, and therefore there were no underwriter discounts or commissions or placement agent fees. The proceeds of the Offering will be used for additional working capital for general corporate purposes.

 

The sale of the Shares was made through a subscription agreement between the Company and each respective investor. The Shares were offered and sold pursuant to the Company’s existing shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-249129), which was initially filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on September 29, 2020 and declared effective by the SEC on October 8, 2020. The Company filed a prospectus supplement, dated December 1, 2021, with the SEC in connection with the sale of the securities in the Offering.

 

The three executive officers of the Company each participated in the Offering, purchasing 50,000 Shares each, on the same terms as the other investors. The Offering was unanimously approved by the Company’s Board of Directors and was also unanimously approved by the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors.
