VANCOUVER, Feb. 6, 2020 /CNW/ - Thunderbird Entertainment Group Inc. (TSXV:TBRD, OTC - THBRF) (Thunderbird or the Company), today announced that all of the remaining shares held in pool will be released effective February 11, 2020.
Pursuant to the terms of the RTO Plan of Arrangement, which was entered into in conjunction with the public listing of the common shares of Thunderbird in October 2018, all of the 36,660,588 common shares that were issued to former shareholders of the predecessor company were held subject to a pooling arrangement. Within the pooling arrangement the trading of these shares was restricted until they were released in stages over a period of 21 months following the initial listing. The intent of the pooling arrangement was to help ensure an orderly market following the initial listing of the Company's shares.
Thunderbird's Board of Directors have determined the pooling arrangement has served its purpose and further restriction of these shares is no longer necessary. Accordingly, the remaining 9,314,443 shares, which are held in pool, will be released effective February 11, 2020. Furthermore, a total of 7,539,143 of these remaining pooled shares are held by principals and insiders of Thunderbird. These shares will remain subject to the restrictions set out in the "value" escrow agreement that was entered into in accordance with the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange at the time of the initial listing.
Full descriptions of the terms of the pooling arrangement and the value escrow agreement are contained in the Company's Filing Statement dated October 29th, 2018 that is available in the Company's profile at www.sedar.com.
