WINNIPEG, June 22, 2015 /CNW/ - San Gold Corporation (TSX-V: SGR) ("San Gold" or the "Company") announced today that it has closed the sale of all of its assets, subject to certain limited exceptions, to 7097914 Manitoba Ltd. (the "Purchaser"). The Purchaser is a nominee corporation of San Gold's principal secured creditors for the purpose of acquiring the assets of San Gold. The transaction was completed pursuant to an asset purchase agreement between San Gold and the Purchaser dated effective June 10, 2015. The sale of San Gold's assets was subject to the approval of The Manitoba Court of Queen's Bench, which granted its approval for the sale at a motion hearing on June 19, 2015 and continued today.
The purchase price was satisfied by the Purchaser assuming all of the liabilities of San Gold owing to its secured creditors as well as certain other liabilities.
Due to the fact that San Gold has sold substantially all of its assets to the Purchaser, San Gold does not have the ability to make a proposal to its other creditors. Accordingly, San Gold will become bankrupt upon the expiration of the current stay period in San Gold's proposal proceedings, which expires today, June 22, 2015, at 11:59 p.m. (central). Following such bankruptcy, San Gold anticipates that its shares will be de-listed from the TSX Venture Exchange.
The Company also advises that all of the officers and directors of the Company have resigned effective today.
Information related to the bankruptcy proceedings, as it becomes available, will be posted on the bankruptcy trustee's website at:
