TORONTO, Feb. 1, 2017 /CNW/ - Firm Capital American Realty Partners Corp. (the "Company"), (TSXV : FCA.U) is pleased to announce that the Company is intending to proceed with a consolidation of its outstanding common shares on the basis of one (1) post-consolidation common share of the Company for every 29.41 pre-consolidation common shares of the Company (the "Proposed Share Consolidation"). This ratio is based upon the 20-day volume weighted average trading price of the pre-consolidation common shares for the previous 20 trading days, such that the trading price of the post-consolidation common shares of the Company is $5.00 per post-consolidation common share.
The Company intends to file articles of amendment to effect the Proposed Share Consolidation as of February 3, 2017. It is expected that the post-consolidation common shares of the Company will commence trading on the TSX Venture Exchange as of market open on February 3, 2017.
The Company currently has 125,867,720 common shares issued and outstanding. Following completion of the Proposed Share Consolidation, the Company will have approximately 4,279,759 common shares issued and outstanding. No fractional post-consolidation common shares will be issued in connection with the Proposed Share Consolidation and, in the event a shareholder would otherwise be entitled to receive a fractional common share in connection with the Proposed Share Consolidation, the number of post-consolidation common shares to be received by such shareholder will be rounded down to the next whole number if that fractional common share is less than ½ of a common share and will be rounded up to the next whole number of common shares if that fractional common share is at least ½ of a common share.
The Company believes that the Proposed Share Consolidation is in the best interests of shareholders and is necessary in order to provide the Company with a share capital structure that will better attract capital financing and enhance future growth opportunities.
The Proposed Share Consolidation has been previously approved by the shareholders of the Company at the Company's annual and special meeting held on July 20, 2016, and is subject to final acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange.
Registered shareholders of the Company will receive a letter of transmittal from the Company's transfer agent with instructions as to how such shareholders may obtain new share certificates for their post-consolidation common shares.
