Fractional Share Cash-Out Price Based on C$0.13 Per Current Common Share Held; Voluntary Delisting from Toronto Stock Exchange Pending
TORONTO, Oct. 23, 2013 /CNW/ - New Dawn Mining Corp. (TSX: ND) ("New Dawn" or the "Company"), a junior gold mining company operating in Zimbabwe, announced that it has filed on SEDAR and is in the process of mailing the Management Information Circular for its previously announced Special Meeting of Shareholders scheduled for November 19, 2013. As previously disclosed, the record date for the Special Meeting of Shareholders was set as October 1, 2013.
The Special Meeting of Shareholders is being held to consider and, if thought advisable, approve special resolutions (the "Proposals") authorizing the Company to implement each of the following actions on a sequential basis:
- the consolidation of the common shares of the Company on the basis of 1 post-consolidation share for each 100,000 common shares currently held.
- the continuance of the Company to the jurisdiction of the Cayman Islands.
In conjunction with the share consolidation, each shareholder of the Company holding a post-consolidation fractional common share will be entitled to receive a payment for that fractional share calculated on the basis of C$0.13 for each common share held immediately prior to the consolidation. Such payment will be without interest and will be made upon application to the Company's transfer agent, consistent with the instructions included in the Management Information Circular.
The cash payout price was determined based on various factors, including a valuation of the common shares of the Company prepared by MPA Morrison Park Advisors Inc., an independent investment bank. The Management Information Circular includes a full discussion of the valuation assumptions and process, as well as other factors that the Directors considered in determining the amount of the cash payout price for the post consolidation fractional common shares. The Management Information Circular also includes a complete copy of the valuation report.
The Company has also applied to voluntarily delist its common shares from the Toronto Stock Exchange, and expects the delisting to be effective on November 20, 2013.
Additional information regarding the matters discussed herein is provided in the Management Information Circular being mailed to shareholders, which is now available on the Company's web-site at www.newdawnmining.com and in the Company's filings on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
The Toronto Stock Exchange has not reviewed and does not accept responsibility for the adequacy or the accuracy of this release.
