MANTRA RESOURCES: UPDATE ON ARMZ CASH OFFER

PERTH, Western Australia, May 4 /CNW/ - Mantra Resources Limited ('Mantra' or 'Company') (ASX: MRU) (TSX: MRL) is pleased to provide the following update on the status of the all-cash offer from JSC Atomredmetzoloto ('ARMZ') to acquire all of the issued shares in Mantra by way of a Board recommended Scheme of Arrangement (the 'Scheme').

If the Scheme becomes effective, Mantra shareholders will receive:

  • A$6.87 in cash for each share they own ('Scheme Consideration'); and
  • an unfranked dividend of A$0.15 for each share they own ('Special Dividend').

The Special Dividend is conditional on shareholders approving an amendment to Mantra's constitution at an extraordinary general meeting ('EGM') to remove the "profits test" restriction on the payment of dividends and permit Mantra to pay dividends out of any available source permitted by law.

The condition precedent in the Scheme Implementation Agreement ('SIA') dated 15 December 2010 requiring approval to the change of control in Mantra under section 110 of the Tanzanian Mining Act (2010), has now been satisfied.

As previously advised, the conditions precedent in the SIA relating to approvals from Australia's Foreign Investment Review Board and the Tanzanian Fair Competition Commission have already been satisfied (refer News Release dated 4 March 2011).
