ST. ALBERT, AB, July 30, 2012 /CNW/ - Federals Silver Corporation
("Federals"), a company controlled by Ron Hodgson, acquired 2,400,000
units (each a "Unit") of El Tigre Silver Corp. ("El Tigre") pursuant to
a non-brokered private placement offering by El Tigre. Each Unit
consists of a common share of El Tigre and one-half of a common share
purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each whole Warrant
entitles the holder to acquire an additional common share of El Tigre
for a period of 18 months from the date of issue.
As a result, Federals owned approximately 28.65% of the 41,961,109
issued and outstanding common shares of El Tigre as at the date of such
acquisition. In addition, if Federals were to exercise the 1,200,000
Warrants acquired by Federals as part of the above noted Units,
Federals would own, assuming no other changes 30.64% of what would then
be the 43,161,109 common shares of El Tigre. Federals understands that
these positions represent 20.9% of the 63,371,658 common shares of El
Tigre that would be outstanding on a fully diluted basis (i.e. assuming
the conversion of all outstanding options and warrants). Ron Hodgson,
an associate of Federals, also holds and personally owns 155,000 or
0.37% of the issued and outstanding common shares of El Tigre.
These details update information previously disclosed by Federals by way
of a press release filed on SEDAR April 23, 2010.
Federal's interest in El Tigre is for investment purposes only.
Federals has no current intention of making a take-over bid for El
Tigre. Federals reserves the right from time to time to purchase
additional common shares of El Tigre or to dispose of common shares of
El Tigre held by Federals.
