Alexandria Minerals Acquisition of Murgor Resources Completed
TORONTO, ONTARIO–(March 10, 2015) – Alexandria Minerals Corporation (TSX VENTURE:AZX)(FRANKFURT:A9D)(PINKSHEETS:ALXDF) (“Alexandria“) and Murgor Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:MGR) (“Murgor“) are pleased to announce today the completion of Murgor’s previously-announced arrangement (the “Arrangement“) under the Canada Business Corporations Act. The Arrangement was approved on February 24, 2015 by holders of Murgor common shares and Murgor stock options. The Superior Court of Québec granted its final order approving the Arrangement on February 25, 2015.
Pursuant to the Arrangement, Alexandria acquired all of the Murgor Shares not already owned by it in exchange for 0.5 of a common share of Alexandria per Murgor common share (the “Share Consideration“).
Eric Owens, President and CEO of Alexandria, said, “We are excited about the future of this acquisition, as the property assets acquired are complementary to ours. Apart from the immediate increase in resources, and the strategic location in well-known mining districts in Quebec, Ontario and Manitoba, we expect to see further growth and positive results from the combined assets in 2015.”
Upon surrender to Equity Financial Trust Company (the “Depositary“) of certificates representing Murgor common shares that were outstanding immediately prior to the effective time of the Arrangement, together with a duly completed and executed Letter of Transmittal, registered holders of such shares are entitled to receive the Share Consideration pursuant to, and subject to the terms and conditions of, the Plan of Arrangement.
Non-registered holders of Murgor common shares that were outstanding immediately prior to the effective time of the Arrangement should contact their nominee (i.e., broker, trust company, bank or other registered holder) which holds the certificates representing such securities, on their behalf to arrange for surrender and payment pursuant to the Arrangement.
It is expected that the Murgor Shares will be delisted from the TSX Venture Exchange later this week. Murgor intends to apply to the relevant securities regulatory authorities to cease to be a reporting issuer in each of the jurisdictions in Canada in which it is currently reporting.
