Forrester Shareholders Approve Plan of Arrangement

TORONTO , April 24, 2017 /CNW/ - Forrester Metals Inc. (the "Company" or "Forrester") (VEM-H.V) is pleased to announce that at the Company's special meeting of shareholders held earlier today, Forrester shareholders voted in favour of the proposed arrangement with Zinc One Resources Inc. ("Zinc One") pursuant to which Zinc One will acquire all of the issued and outstanding common shares of Forrester (the "Arrangement").  The Arrangement was approved by approximately 99.9% of the votes cast by: (i) all of the Forrester shareholders voting at the special meeting; and (ii) the majority of disinterested Forester shareholders voting at the meeting in person or by proxy.

Completion of the Arrangement remains conditional on approval by the Ontario Superior Court of Justice and certain other customary closing conditions including receipt of TSX Venture and NEX approval for the transaction.  Forrester will appear before the Ontario Superior Court to request that a final order of the Court approving the Arrangement be issued.  It is expected that Forrester will bring its application to the Court on April 26.  Shortly following receipt of TSX Venture and NEX approval for the transaction, in addition to Court approval, the transaction will close.
