TORONTO, Oct. 11, 2012 /CNW/ - POCML 1 Inc. ("POCML1" or the "Corporation") (TSX Venture Exchange "LMP.P"), a capital pool company ("CPC") and Mason Graphite Corp. ("Mason Graphite") are pleased to announce that POCML1 has filed its Filing Statement dated September 15, 2012 in respect of its qualifying transaction (the "Qualifying Transaction").
On October 4, 2012 the Corporation received conditional approval from the TSX Venture Exchange for the completion of its Qualifying Transaction, which will be effected pursuant to an amalgamation agreement (the "Amalgamation Agreement") among the Corporation, its wholly-owned subsidiary, and Mason Graphite, pursuant to which POCML1 agreed to acquire all of the issued and outstanding Mason Graphite common shares by way of amalgamation between its wholly-owned subsidary and Mason Graphite and following which the amalgamated company will be a wholly-owned subsidiary of POCML1. Pursuant to the Amalgamation Agreement, all of the outstanding Mason Graphite common shares will be exchanged for common shares of POCML 1 on a one for one basis, as more particularly described in the Amalgamation Agreement, such that former shareholders of Mason Graphite will continue as shareholders of POCML1. As a result 51,229,989 shares will be issued by POCML1 to former Mason Graphite shareholders, on a non-diluted basis, including 8,134,000 shares (representing 15.2% of the issued and outstanding shares of the resulting issuer on a non-diluted basis) which will be issued to Fahad Tamimi.
In connection with the Qualifying Transaction the Corporation will change its name to "Mason Graphite Inc."
The Qualifying Transaction is expected to close on or about October 15, 2012. The CPC Filing Statement is available under POCML1's profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
