TORONTO, March 15, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- African Gold Group. (AGG.V) (“AGG” or the “Company”) announces its intention to seek the necessary approvals to consolidate its common shares.
The Company has called a special meeting of common shareholders (the “Meeting”) for April 4, 2019 at 10:00 a.m. (Toronto time). The Meeting will be held at the Company’s head office at 65 Queen Street West, 8th floor boardroom, Toronto, Ontario M5H 2M5. AGG shareholders will be asked to consider and approve a share consolidation (the “Consolidation”) on the basis of one new common share of the Company (each, a “New Share”) for up to every 7.5 existing common shares of the Company (each, an “Existing Share”), or such lower number of Existing Shares as may be determined by the Board of Directors of AGG and as may be required to obtain approval of the Consolidation from the TSX Venture Exchange.
The principal effects of the Consolidation will be that the number of Shares of the Company issued and outstanding will be reduced from 359,582,671 Existing Shares as of the date hereof to approximately 47,944,356 New Shares, assuming a consolidation ratio of 7.5 to 1.
The expected benefits of the Consolidation include improved trading liquidity from lower transaction costs, great investor interest as well as reduced future dilution from the ability to raise additional capital at a higher price per Share. Additional benefits of the Consolidation, as well as the procedure for implementing the Consolidation and the full text resolution approving the Consolidation may be found in the Company’s management information circular dated March 5, 2019 (the “Circular”) that is being mailed to shareholders and may be found under the Company’s profile on SEDAR.
