VANCOUVER, Feb. 7, 2012 /CNW/ - Gold Bullion Development Corp.
(TSXV:GBB) (OTCPINK:GBBFF) ("Gold Bullion" or the "Company") is pleased
to announce that it has adopted a shareholder rights plan (the "Rights
Plan") designed to encourage the fair treatment of its shareholders in
the event of an unsolicited take-over bid for shares of the Company.
The Rights Plan is designed to give the Company's shareholders
sufficient time to properly assess a take-over bid without undue
pressure and to give the Company's Board of Directors time to consider
alternatives that allow the Company's shareholders to receive full and
fair value for their common shares.
Pursuant to the Rights Plan, each holder of record of the outstanding
common shares of the Company on February 1, 2012 will be issued one
right per common share. The rights will trade with the common shares
and be represented by the certificates representing common shares.
Although the Rights Plan is effective immediately, it is subject to TSX
Venture Exchange approval and must be ratified by the shareholders of
the Company within six (6) months of its adoption. The Rights Plan will
be submitted to the shareholders of the Company for ratification at the
Annual General and Special Meeting of Shareholders to be held April 12,
A copy of the Rights Plan is posted and available for viewing on http://sedar.com/.
The Rights Plan is similar to shareholder rights plans adopted by
numerous other Canadian corporations. Neither the Board nor senior
management of the Company is aware of any current, pending or
threatened take-over bid for the Company.
