today that, in the context of the previously announced consensual
restructuring of its debts, it has filed a preliminary short form
prospectus with the securities regulatory authorities in each of the
provinces of Canada, and a corresponding registration statement on Form
F-7 with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"), in connection with a proposed rights offering (the "Offering") pursuant to which the Company may realize aggregate gross proceeds of
up to Cdn$4,724,152.
Subject to applicable law, each holder of record of common shares (the "Common Shares") of the capital of Maudore as of a record date to be determined at the
time of the filing of the final prospectus in connection with the
Offering (the "Final Prospectus") will receive one right (a "Right") for each Common Share held. Each Right will entitle the holder
thereof to acquire one Common Share (the "Basic Subscription Privilege") upon payment of Cdn$0.10 per Common Share (the "Subscription Price"). The Offering will be open for exercise for 21 days from the date of
mailing of the Final Prospectus. Holders of Rights who exercise their
Rights in full will be entitled to purchase, at the Subscription Price,
any Common Shares that are not otherwise subscribed for under the
Offering prior to the expiry of the Offering, on a pro rata basis (the
"Additional Subscription Privilege").
Shareholders who do not wish to exercise their Rights to buy new Common
Shares under the Offering will have the option of selling the Rights
that they receive from the Company through the TSXV. Shareholders who
do not exercise all of their Rights will have their present ownership
interests in Maudore, as a percentage of the total outstanding Common
Shares, reduced as a result of the Offering.
Messrs. Kevin Tomlinson, George Fowlie and Greg Struble, executive
officers of the Company, (collectively, the "Standby Purchasers") have entered into a standby purchase agreement with the Company under
which they have agreed to: (i) exercise their respective Basic
Subscription Privileges in full and thereby purchase an aggregate of
1,250,448 Common Shares; and (ii) purchase, at the Subscription Price,
an aggregate of 1,749,552 Common Shares pursuant to the Additional
Subscription Privilege, representing, in the aggregate, gross proceeds
to the Company of Cdn$300,000. In addition, FBC Holdings S.à r.l. ("FBC") has agreed, at a minimum, to exercise its Basic Subscription
Privilege in full, representing additional gross proceeds to the
Company of not less than Cdn$725,400.
An application has been submitted to the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV") to approve the listing of the Rights and the Common Shares issuable
upon the exercise of the Rights. The Common Shares issuable upon the
exercise of the Rights will also be eligible to be quoted for trading
on the OTCQX.
As a result of the Offering, adjustments will be made to the Company's
outstanding share purchase warrants (the "Warrants") such that, upon exercise of each Warrant, in addition to the Common
Share which the holder thereof would otherwise be entitled to acquire,
