SCOTTSDALE, AZ, Apr 15, 2014 (Marketwired via COMTEX) — Lithium Exploration Group (OTCQB: LEXG) is pleased to announce the closing of a financing of $500,000. This financing consisted of an issuance by the company of a $550,000 original discounted convertible debenture and warrants. Unlike previous financings completed over the last year, this debenture is convertible at only a 35% discount on the average lowest common share price of the company in the most recent 20 trading days upon the date of conversion. The conversion discount of the financing is a 15% decrease of the conversion discount when compared to previous similar financings completed by the company (in which the conversion discounts were 50%).
“Establishing financings that are less dilutive upon conversion is key to our future strategy. We are using a good portion of this financing to pay off prior financings,” commented CEO Alex Walsh. “This new level of financing will serve as a benchmark, and we fully intend to further decrease the conversion discount in the future.”
