Toronto, Ontario January 10, 2020 ‐ Central Timmins Exploration Corp. ("CTEC" or the "Corporation") (TSXV: CTEC) announces that at the special meeting of shareholders held on January 9, 2020, a special resolution was passed by shareholders authorizing and approving an amendment to the Corporation’s articles to effect a consolidation (the “Share Consolidation”) of the issued and outstanding common shares of the Corporation (the “Common Shares”). Subsequent to the special meeting, the Board of Directors elected to proceed with the Share Consolidation on the basis of one (1) post-consolidation Common Share for every six (6) pre-consolidation Common Shares.
As at the date hereof, the Corporation has 51,350,000 Common Shares issued and outstanding. Upon completion of the Share Consolidation, the number of post-consolidation Common Shares issued and outstanding will be approximately 8,558,333 (on a non-diluted basis). Any fractional Common Share resulting from the Share Consolidation will be rounded down to the nearest whole number and any such fractional interest will be cancelled without consideration.
The Share Consolidation remains subject to final approval by the TSX Venture Exchange. The post-consolidation Common Shares are expected to be posted for trading on the TSX Venture Exchange at the opening of trading on January 14, 2020, under the current symbol "CTEC".
The implementation of the Share Consolidation will not affect the total shareholders’ equity of the Corporation or any components of shareholders’ equity as reflected on the Corporation’s financial statements except: (i) to change the number of issued and outstanding Common Shares; and (ii) to change the number of outstanding stock options and common share purchase warrants of the Corporation, as well as their relative exercise prices, to reflect the Share Consolidation.
In connection with the special meeting, registered shareholders were provided with a letter of transmittal (the “Letter of Transmittal”). Registered shareholders should deliver their Common Share certificate(s) and a completed Letter of Transmittal to TSX Trust Company in accordance with the instructions therein. Upon receipt of such Common Share certificate(s) and a completed Letter of Transmittal, TSX Trust Company shall mail new post-consolidation Common Share certificates to registered shareholders to reflect the Share Consolidation.
