TORONTO, Sept. 29, 2014 /CNW/ - Jubilee Gold Exploration Ltd. (TSX.V: JUB) (the "Corporation") today reports that it has received approval from the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSX-V") for the capital reorganization previously announced on June 4, 2014 (the "Capital Reorganization"). Pursuant to the terms of the Capital Reorganization and by notice to its shareholders dated September 24, 2014, the Corporation has exercised its option to convert all outstanding common shares of the Corporation (the "Common Shares") to a new class of common shares (the "Class A Common Shares") on a 1-for-1 basis. The Class A Common Shares have the same characteristics as the Common Shares prior to the addition of conversion and redemption features approved by shareholders at the annual and special meeting held on May 29, 2014.
Holders of Common Shares ("Shareholders") and holders of unexchanged common shares of the Corporation's predecessor corporations ("Unexchanged Shareholders") will have until November 24, 2014 at 5:00 pm EST (the "Conversion Deadline") to surrender their Common Shares certificates according to the instructions set out in the letter of transmittals sent to Shareholders and Unexchanged Shareholders, copies of which are available on the Corporation's SEDAR page. Holders of Common Shares will send their share certificates and completed letters of transmittal to the depositary, Computershare Investor Services Inc., while Unexchanged Shareholders will send their share certificates and completed letters of transmittal to the Corporation, following which Class A Common Share certificates will be issued.
Immediately following the Conversion Deadline, the Class A Common Shares will be listed on the TSX-V and the Common Shares will be delisted. Any Shareholders or Unexchanged Shareholders that do not convert their shares by the Conversion Deadline will have their shares automatically redeemed at a price of $0.14 per share, the listed closing price of the Common Shares on the day prior to the date of the notice of conversion.
Further details on these matters are set forth in the Corporation's materials accessible on the Corporation's SEDAR corporate profile page.
