PERTH, Australia, Sept. 30, 2013 /CNW/ - Mirabela Nickel Limited (Mirabela or the Company) (ASX: MBN,TSX: MNB) advises that the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) has accepted the application of Mirabela for the voluntary de-listing of its ordinary shares (Shares) from trading on the TSX.
As a result, the Shares will be de-listed and the TSX has confirmed that, as from close of trading on Friday, October 4, 2013, the Shares will no longer be traded on the TSX.
INFORMATION FOR CANADIAN SHAREHOLDERS
In order to continue to trade in the Shares, Canadian Shareholders must transfer their Share holdings from the Canadian register to the Australian register maintained by Advanced Share Registry Services Limited (Advanced Share Registry) to enable trading on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX).
If you hold a Mirabela physical Share certificate, you are a directly registered shareholder. Shareholders directly registered on the Canadian register, other than Clearing and Depositary Services Inc. (CDS), must complete and return a "Removal Request - Canada to Australia" form along with their Share certificate to the Company's Canadian transfer agent, TMX Equity Transfer Services (Equity). Equity will process the cross border transfer with Advanced Share Registry. This form will be available on Mirabela's website.
Most shareholders on the Canadian register will not be directly registered (and will not have a physical certificate), but instead will hold their Shares through a participating broker or intermediary in CDS, and the above noted process is not applicable for them. If you hold your Shares through a Canadian online brokerage account, securities dealer or bank-owned broker, you most likely hold your Shares indirectly through CDS. For these shareholders, CDS will be issuing a bulletin to its participating brokers and intermediaries providing information as to how to move Shares to the Australian register from CDS. Accordingly, shareholders should contact their broker or intermediary directly for more information.
Shareholders holding Shares through CDS and who do not ultimately move their Shares to the Australian register will be issued physical certificates in due course. If a shareholder that formerly held through CDS receives a physical certificate, it will then be the shareholder's responsibility to move their Shares to the Australian register.
Shareholders may also continue to trade their Shares on the TSX until the close of trading on the TSX on Friday, October 4, 2013. Once the Shares are transferred to Advanced Share Registry, the Shares may be traded on the ASX.
Questions regarding the transfer process outlined above should be directed to the relevant broker or intermediary for Shares held through a CDS participating broker or intermediary, or to Equity at:

Mirabela intends to terminate its Canadian register by December 31, 2013. Shareholders who do not transfer their shares by such date will be contacted by Mirabela in due course to make arrangements for the transfer.
