CALGARY, Jan. 22, 2013 /CNW/ - Calvalley Petroleum Inc. ("Calvalley" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that in accordance with its previous announcement, it has made an Offer (the "Offer") to purchase up to 15,000,000 of its outstanding Class A common voting shares ("Shares") at a purchase price of $2.45 per Share.
There are currently 94,329,159 Shares outstanding. Assuming the maximum number of Shares is taken-up and paid for under the Offer, the aggregate purchase price to Calvalley, before costs and expenses of the Offer, will be $36,750,000, which Calvalley intends to finance with existing cash on hand. If more than 15,000,000 Shares are tendered to the Offer, the Company will purchase the Shares on a pro rata basis according to the number of Shares deposited.
The Offer is subject to various conditions typical for transactions of this nature. Full details of the Offer, including instructions on how shareholders can tender their Shares to the Offer, are included in the Offer to Purchase and Issuer Bid Circular of the Company (the "Offer and Circular"), which will be mailed to registered shareholders, filed with applicable securities regulators and made available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com. The Offer is open for acceptance until February 27, 2013 unless withdrawn or extended by Calvalley.
The Board of Directors believes that the purchase of the Shares under the Offer represents an effective use of the Company's financial resources and is in the best interests of Calvalley; however, neither the Company nor its directors make any recommendation to shareholders as to whether to tender their shares to the Offer. Shareholders are strongly encouraged to review the Offer and Circular carefully and to consult with their financial and tax advisors prior to making any decision with respect to the Offer. The Company's directors and officers have advised that they do not intend to tender Common Shares pursuant to the Offer.
The Company has retained Jennings Capital Inc. as its financial advisor and dealer manager in respect of the Offer.
