MONTREAL, June 4, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - Colt Resources Inc. ("Colt" or the "Company") (TSXV: GTP) (FRA: P01) (OTCQX: COLTF)
announces today that in order to meet short term working capital
requirements and to strengthen its balance sheet, it has accepted an
offer from its Executive Chairman, Richard Quesnel, by which he will be
purchasing up to 4,444,444 shares of Colt Resources Middle East
("CRME") for $1 million CAD. This represents a price of $0.225 per
share and a 50% premium to the CRME financing completed in March 2014.
The transaction has been approved by Colt's board of directors and
received conditional approval from the TSX Venture Exchange. This offer
has effectively triggered a ROFR by which all the remaining CRME
shareholders now have 30 days to exercise their pro rata right to match
Mr. Quesnel's offer. This transaction combined with an aggressive cost
cutting program gives Colt the financial flexibility to pursue parallel
funding initiatives necessary for the completion of bankable
feasibility studies at both of its flagship Portugal projects, namely
the Boa Fé-Montemor Gold Project and the Tabuaço Tungsten Project. As a
result of this transaction and in order to address potential conflict
of interest issues in the future, Mr. Quesnel will be stepping down
from Colt's board of directors and resigning as Executive Chair but he
will however be working very closely with Colt management and board to
assist them with the continued advancement of several ongoing strategic
initiatives under discussion. In his new role Mr. Quesnel has accepted
to Chair the Company's Advisory Board. Colt will also benefit from Mr.
Quesnel's enhanced focus on his role of CEO in the development of CRME
of which it will retain a significant stake of 12,222,223 shares
representing 27.9%.of the outstanding shares.
