Canadian Metals Receives Shareholder Approval for Share Consolidation

MONTREAL, Sept. 04, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Canadian Metals Inc. (“CME” or the “Company”) (CSE:CME) announces that it has received strong support from its shareholders for the consolidation of its common shares on the basis of one new common share (each, a “New Share”) for up to ten common shares outstanding (each, an “Existing Share”).  Of the votes cast by shareholders at the CME special shareholder meeting, 93.1% voted in favor of Consolidation.

The Board has established that the Company will proceed on the basis of one New Share for every ten Existing Share (the “Consolidation”) and expect the Consolidation to be effective on or about September 16, 2019.

CME will advise shareholders when the Consolidation will occur and a letter of transmittal will be sent by mail to shareholders advising that the Consolidation has taken effect and instructing shareholders to surrender the certificates evidencing their Existing Shares for replacement certificates representing the number of New Shares to which they are entitled as a result of the Consolidation.

Post Consolidation the Company will have 13,229,119 New Shares outstanding. The change in the number of issued and outstanding common shares that will result from the Consolidation will not materially affect any shareholder’s percentage ownership in CME, although such ownership would be represented by a smaller number of common shares. Further details regarding the Consolidation are contained in the Company’s Information Circular dated August 1, 2019, which has been filed under the Company’s profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
