TORONTO, April 21, 2017 /CNW/ - Forrester Metals Inc. (the "Company" or "Forrester") (NEX: VEM.H) provides an update in respect of its proposed arrangement with Zinc One Resources Inc. ("Zinc One") pursuant to which Zinc One will acquire all of the issued and outstanding common shares of Forrester (the "Arrangement").
The Special Meeting of shareholders to approve the Arrangement under the Ontario Business Corporations Act is scheduled to be held at the offices of Forrester, 130 King Street West, Suite 3680, Toronto, Ontario on Monday, April 24, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. (Toronto time).
For the Arrangement to be approved, Forrester will require the approval by 66 2/3 percent of the votes cast by its shareholders who are present in person or by proxy at the Special Meeting as well as the approval of a simple majority of disinterested shareholders. For purposes of applicable securities laws, all shares held by the directors and officers of Forrester, being 8,215,001 shares in aggregate, will be excluded from the minority vote. The Board of Directors of Forrester has previously approved the Arrangement and has unanimously recommended that Shareholders approve the Arrangement.

It is expected that Forrester will bring its application to the Court on April 26. Shortly following receipt of TSX Venture and NEX approval for the transaction, in addition to Court approval, the transaction will close.
