ROUYN-NORANDA, QC, May 28, 2014 /CNW/ - X-Terra Resources Corporation ("X-Terra") (TSXV: XT) is pleased to announce that at an annual and special meeting of shareholders held yesterday, X-Terra's shareholders approved a special resolution for a proposed "spin-off" of all of X-Terra's assets (except for 2 million shares of Brownstone Energy Inc. held by X-Terra and approximately $1.85 million in cash) and all of its liabilities to X-Terra Resources Inc. ("New X-Terra") and approved a second resolution for a proposed reverse take-over involving X-Terra and Norvista Capital Corporation ("Norvista Capital").
Both resolutions were passed with 99.95% of the shares voting in favour. As a result, X-Terra has been authorized to proceed with the Spin-Out and Reverse Take-Over, as outlined in X-Terra's management information circular dated April 28, 2014.
At the meeting, X-Terra's shareholders also re-elected Martin Dallaire, Sylvain Champagne, Sheldon Inwentash, Sébastien Plouffe, Dr. Xin Zhao and Gerry Feldman as directors of X-Terra. Following the meeting, X-Terra's Board of Directors re-appointed Martin Dallaire as President and Chief Executive Officer and Sylvain Champagne as Secretary and Chief Financial Officer of the corporation.
X-Terra's shareholders also approved resolutions re-appointing PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, a partnership of Chartered Professional Accountants, as the auditor of X-Terra, ratifying and confirming the New X-Terra and Norvista Capital stock option plans, confirming two amendments to By-Law No. 1 of X-Terra, and authorizing the grant of stock options pursuant to the New X-Terra stock option plan to certain of its directors and officers at an exercise price lower than the exercise price of X-Terra stock options which they currently hold.
Completion of the Spin-Out and Reverse Take-Over is subject to a number of conditions, including regulatory approval and financing. It is expected that the closing of the Spin-Out, Reverse Take-Over and concurrent financings of New X-Terra and Norvista Capital will occur on or about June 4, 2014. If all conditions for the Spin-Out and Reverse Take-Over are met, it is expected that the shares of New X-Terra and Norvista Capital will commence trading on the TSX Venture Exchange in mid-June 2014, after delivery by New X-Terra and Norvista Capital of standard listing documentation to the Exchange. Each of New X-Terra and Norvista Capital will issue a press release announcing the date on which its shares will start trading on the TSX Venture Exchange.
