CALGARY, March 16, 2017 /CNW/ - Roll-Up Capital Corp. (TSX.V: ROL.P - the "Company" or "Roll-Up"), a capital pool company, is pleased to announce that it has received conditional acceptance from the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") for the Qualifying Transaction (as defined in Exchange policies) involving Renntiger Resources Limited ("Renntiger"). Roll-Up and Renntiger anticipate that the closing date of the Qualifying Transaction will be March 22, 2017.
As previously announced on December 9, 2016, January 5, 2017 and February 9, 2017, the Qualifying Transaction will be completed by way of a court-approved plan of arrangement (the "Arrangement") under the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia) whereby, among other things, Roll-Up will acquire all of the issued and outstanding common shares of Renntiger in exchange for common shares of Roll-Up. Immediately after the closing of the Arrangement, the name of Roll-Up will be changed to VR Resources Ltd. (the "Resulting Issuer"). Upon completion of the Qualifying Transaction there will be 35,405,225 shares of the Resulting Issuer issued and outstanding.
On February 9, 2017, Renntiger closed a private placement financing for aggregate gross proceeds of approximately $4,400,000, with GMP Securities L.P. and PI Financial Corp. acting as agents. Funds realized from the financing will be released to the Resulting Issuer concurrently with the completion of the Arrangement.
Roll-Up has filed on SEDAR its filing statement dated March 16, 2017 relating to the Qualifying Transaction (the "Filing Statement"). Investors are encouraged to review the Filing Statement on Roll-Up's SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com, which provides detailed information about, among other things, the Qualifying Transaction, Renntiger and the Resulting Issuer.
The Company will issue a further press release once the Exchange issues its bulletin announcing the closing of the Qualifying Transaction and the date that trading in the shares of the Resulting Issuer, to be renamed VR Resources Ltd., will commence on the Exchange. The Resulting Issuer's trading symbol will be "VRR".
