Cornerstone Announces Effective Date for Share Consolidation

OTTAWA, July 11, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cornerstone Capital Resources Inc. (“Cornerstone” or “the Company”) (CGP.V) (GWN.F) (GWN.BE) (CTNXF) today announced that it will implement the previously announced proposed consolidation (the “Share Consolidation”) of its issued and outstanding common shares (the “Common Shares”) on the basis of one (1) post-consolidation Common Share for every twenty (20) pre-consolidation Common Shares, effective as of July 12, 2019. Shareholder approval of the Share Consolidation was obtained at the Company’s annual general and special meeting held on June 25, 2019. The Company has also received TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV”) approval for the Share Consolidation.

Following the Share Consolidation, the Common Shares will continue to be traded on the TSXV under the symbol “CGP”. The Common Shares are scheduled to begin trading on a post-consolidation basis at market open on July 15, 2019. Following the Share Consolidation, the Common Shares will have a new CUSIP number (21922J604) and ISIN number (CA21922J6043).

A letter of transmittal will be mailed to all registered shareholders with instructions on how to exchange their existing share certificate(s) for new share certificate(s). Additional copies of the letter of transmittal can be obtained through Computershare Investor Services Inc. Shareholders may also obtain a copy of the letter of transmittal under the Company’s SEDAR profile at www.SEDAR.com. Following the Share Consolidation, share certificates representing pre-consolidation Common Shares will be deemed for all purposes to represent the number of Common Shares to which the shareholder is entitled as a result of the Share Consolidation. No delivery of a new share certificate to a shareholder will be made until the shareholder surrenders its certificate(s) representing the pre-consolidation Common Shares along with the letter of transmittal to Computershare Investor Services Inc. in the manner detailed in the letter of transmittal.

Non-registered beneficial holders holding their Common Shares through a bank, broker or other nominee should note that such banks, brokers or other nominees may have specific procedures for processing the Share Consolidation. Shareholders holding their Common Shares with such a bank, broker or nominee and who have any questions in this regard are encouraged to contact their nominee.

No fractional Common Shares will be issued upon the Share Consolidation. In the event a holder of Common Shares would otherwise be entitled to receive a fractional Common Share in connection with the Share Consolidation, the number of Common Shares to be received by such shareholder will be rounded down to the next whole number if that fractional Common Share is less than one half (1/2) of a Common Share, and will be rounded up to the next whole number of Common Shares if that fractional Common Share is equal to or greater than one half (1/2) of a Common Share.
There are 640,141,422 Common Shares currently issued and outstanding. Following completion of the Share Consolidation, the Company will have approximately 32,007,071 Common Shares issued and outstanding (on a non-diluted basis and subject to rounding to account for fractional shares).

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 Share Consolidation.

Further details regarding the Share Consolidation are included in the Company’s management information circular dated May 21, 2019, a copy of which is available under the Company’s SEDAR profile at www.SEDAR.com.
