Proposed Share Consolidation
The Company further announces that it intends to complete a consolidation of its common shares ("Common Shares") on the basis of five (5) pre-consolidation Common Shares for one (1) post-consolidation Common Shares (the "Consolidation"). The consolidation is expected to make the company's shares more accessible to institutional shareholders with investment mandates that necessitate a minimum share price of $5.00 per share.
No fractional Common Shares will be issued as a result of the Consolidation. Any fractional interest in Common Shares that is less than 0.5 of a Common Share resulting from the Consolidation will be rounded down to the nearest whole Common Share and any fractional interest in Common Shares that is equal to or greater than 0.5 of a Common Share will be rounded up to the nearest whole Common Share.
As of the date hereof, there are 70,002,473 Common Shares issued and outstanding. On a post-Consolidation basis, the Company shall have approximately 14,000,495 Common Shares issued and outstanding. It is expected that the Common Shares are expected to commence trading on a consolidated basis and with a new CUSIP number on or around June 23, 2023. The Company will not be changing its name in connection with the Consolidation. Completion of the Consolidation is subject to the receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals including the approval of the Toronto Stock Exchange. Pursuant to the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia) and the articles of the Company, shareholder approval of Consolidation is not required.
Shareholders who hold their shares through a securities broker or dealer, bank or trust company will not be required to take any measures with respect to the share consolidation. The Company's transfer agent, TSX Trust Company ("TSX Trust"), will mail a letter of transmittal to all registered shareholders of the Company that will contain instructions for exchanging their pre-Consolidation common shares for post-Consolidation common shares. Registered shareholders will be required to return their certificates representing pre-Consolidation common shares and a completed letter of transmittal to TSX Trust. Any registered shareholder who submits a duly completed letter of transmittal to TSX Trust along with pre-Consolidation share certificate will receive in return a post-Consolidation share certificate or Direct Registration System Advice. The exercise or conversion price of, and the number of common shares issuable under, any convertible securities of the Company will be proportionately adjusted upon the completion of the Consolidation.
Real Assets Strategy
The Company is pleased to announce the formation of Goldmoney Properties Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company. Through Goldmoney Properties Limited, the Company intends to acquire institutional grade real assets with contracted inflation-protected cash flows that exceed the Company's long-run estimation of inflation.
