LEHI, UT -- (Marketwire) -- 11/08/12 -- Agricon Global Corporation (Agricon) (OTCBB: AGRC) announced today its acceptance of an additional, over-subscribed $500,000 for its private placement offering of common stock. Previously the Company had raised a total of $610,000, issuing 1,220,000 shares at the same price of fifty cents per share. The Company had a requirement to raise a minimum of $600,000 as part of its acquisition of Canola Property Ghana Limited, a transaction that was completed on March 31, 2012, and met that requirement when it closed on the initial $610,000. This transaction brings the total to $1,110,000 for the issuance of 2,220,000 shares in the private placement offering.
Bob Bench, President of Agricon, said: "This additional capital will allow us to immediately execute the first 8,000 acre lease, of three long-term leases (50 years) that total over 30,000 acres of agricultural land in Ghana, West Africa. This will also allow us to begin clearing the land in preparation for planting."
James Jensen, Board Chairman, added: "We are encouraged with the significant worldwide investor interest in our project in Ghana. The Company will now begin its next capital raise of up to $10,000,000 for equipment, facilities and farm operations."
