TORONTO, March 12 /CNW/ - Eurasia Gold Inc. ("Eurasia" or, the "Company")
(TSX: EGX) announces that it is postponing its secondary listing on the Main
Market of the London Stock Exchange and the offering of new shares to
institutional investors (the "Global Offer").
Following a management road show for institutional investors, the Board
of Eurasia has concluded that, while a London listing with a substantial
capital raising was achievable, recent market volatility prevented completion
at a share price level that valued the Company fairly.
Baltabek Mukashev, CEO of Eurasia said:
"During our road show we received strongly positive feedback, but market
turbulence has not allowed investors to concentrate fully on our value
proposition. The Board is determined to preserve value for all shareholders,
both current and future, and given the significant interest expressed in the
Company during the roadshow it concludes that a postponement of the offering
is the best course.
The management team and the Board of Directors remain committed to
delivering the Company's stated strategy, and today's announcement does not
unduly delay our plans for achieving our objectives. Eurasia will continue the
investment program aimed at developing existing and new assets, and will
monitor the situation for the best timing to access the capital markets."
Despite this development, the parties will proceed with the acquisition
of the Bozymchak gold - copper deposit in Kyrgyzstan and the Akjilga silver
deposit in Tajikistan subject to the share purchase agreement. Shareholders of
Eurasia are scheduled to vote on the proposed acquisition at a meeting to be
held on March 13, 2007.
