TORONTO, Sept. 17, 2019 /CNW/ -- Millennial Esports Corp. ("Millennial" or the "Company," TSX VENTURE: GAME, OTCQB: MLLLF) announces that shareholders will be asked at the Company's upcoming annual and special shareholders meeting scheduled for October 9, 2019 (the "Meeting") to approve a change of the name of the Company to "Torque Esports Corp." (the "Name Change"). The Company is also proposing to consolidate its issued and outstanding common shares (the "Common Shares") on the basis of one (1) post-consolidation common share for up to a maximum of five (5) pre-consolidation common shares or such other consolidation ratio that the board of directors of the Company deems appropriate provided that such ratio shall not be greater than one (1) post-consolidation common share for up to a maximum of five (5) pre-consolidation common shares (the "Consolidation"). Additional information relating to the proposed name change and consolidation is included in the management information circular of the Company dated September 6, 2019 (the "Information Circular"), which is available on the Company's SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com.
The Company has mailed the Information Circular with respect to the Meeting. As part of that Meeting, shareholders of the Company will be asked to approve special resolutions to amend the articles of the Company with respect to the Name Change and the Consolidation.
Approval by the Company's shareholders of the Consolidation resolution does not mean that a Consolidation will happen. Rather it affords the Company's board of directors the right to implement one should they feel that it is in the best interest of the Company and of its shareholders. There are currently 11,732,949 Common Shares issued and outstanding. Should a full 5 for 1 Consolidation be approved by Shareholders and ultimately implemented by the Company's board of directors, it is expected there will be approximately 2,346,589 post-consolidation Common Shares in the capital of the Company issued and outstanding. The board of directors believes that a Consolidation may be in the best interests of the shareholders of the Company as it could lead to increased interest by a wider audience of potential investors and could better position the Company to obtain financing and pursue acquisition opportunities.
The Consolidation and Name Change are both subject to shareholder and regulatory approval, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
