TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - June 27, 2013) -
NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO US NEWSWIRE SERVICES NOR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
Further to the press release dated May 15, 2013, Legend Gold Corp. (the "Company" or "Legend Gold") (TSX VENTURE:LGN) is proposing to undertake a non-brokered private placement of a minimum of 20,000,000 units of the Company (the "Units") at a price of $0.30 per Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of not less than $6,000,000 (the "Private Placement"). Each Unit will consist of one common share of the Company (each, a "Common Share") and one common share purchase warrant of the Company (each, a "Warrant") entitling the holder to subscribe for an additional Common Share at a price of $0.55 for a period of five years from the date of the closing of the Private Placement. The Private Placement is being completed in connection with the acquisition by the Company of certain exploration-stage properties in Mali from Endeavour Mining Corporation (the "Endeavour Acquisition") and the acquisition by a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company of Corado Resources Corp. (the "Corado Combination").
Policy 4.1 - Private Placements ("Policy 4.1") of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSX-V") Corporate Finance Manual requires that, where a transaction creates a new "Control Person", the approval of shareholders (other than such new Control Person) is required, either by ordinary resolution passed at a meeting of shareholders or by the written consent of shareholders holding more than 50% of the issuer's shares. A Control Person, for the purposes of Policy 4.1, includes any shareholder holding or controlling more than 20% or more of an issuer's shares, except where there is evidence showing that such shareholder does not materially affect control of the issuer.
Certain affiliates of Sprott Inc. ("Sprott") have agreed to acquire Units under the Private Placement. Upon completion of the Private Placement, as well as the Endeavour Acquisition and Corado Combination, it is anticipated that Sprott will have control over 10,240,000 Common Shares and 10,240,000 Warrants (representing approximately 28.25% of the Company's then issued and outstanding Common Shares on a partially diluted basis). Sprott will therefore become a Control Person pursuant to Policy 4.1. As required by Policy 4.1, the Company is seeking the written consent of shareholders holding or controlling more than 50% of its Common Shares (the "Consent") to approve the creation of Sprott as a new Control Person.
The board of directors of the Company has determined that the Private Placement is in the best interests of the Company.
Accordingly, the board recommends that you sign the Consent to the creation of a new Control Person currently being sent to you.
Please return a copy of your signed consent to Legend Gold Corp., attention Jo-Anne Archibald, Corporate Secretary, by email at email@example.com or by facsimile at (416) 848-0790.
If you have any questions concerning the Consent, please contact Douglas Perkins, President & CEO, at (514) 806 6788 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
