PanTerra announces proposed consolidation and name change

CALGARY, Aug. 13, 2014 /CNW/ - PanTerra Resource Corp. ("PanTerra" or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE: PRC) is pleased to advise that it is proposing to consolidate its issued and outstanding common shares (the "Common Shares") and to change the name of the Corporation to "Ikkuma Resources Corp."  Additional information relating to the proposed consolidation and name change is included in the management information circular of the Corporation dated August 11, 2014 (the "Information Circular"), which is available on the Corporation's SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com.

PanTerra has mailed the Information Circular with respect to its annual and special meeting of shareholders scheduled for September 17, 2014 (the "Meeting").  As part of that Meeting, shareholders of the Corporation will be asked to approve a special resolution to amend the articles of the Corporation to consolidate the issued and outstanding Common Shares on the basis of one (1) post-consolidation Common Share for every ten (10) pre‑consolidation Common Shares (the "Consolidation").  In addition, shareholders of the Corporation will be asked to approve a special resolution to change the name of the Corporation to "Ikkuma Resources Corp.", or such other name as the board of directors may, in its sole discretion, determine to be appropriate (the "Name Change").

There are currently 798,144,522 Common Shares issued and outstanding.  Upon the Consolidation becoming effective, it is expected there will be approximately 79,814,452 post-consolidation Common Shares in the capital of the Corporation issued and outstanding.

The board of directors of the Corporation has concluded that the Consolidation would be in the best interests of the shareholders of the Corporation as it could lead to increased interest by a wider audience of potential investors and could better position the Corporation to obtain financing and pursue acquisition opportunities. 

The Consolidation and Name Change are both subject to shareholder and regulatory approval, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
