Far Resources Provides Update on Plan of Arrangement
October 4, 2017 – Vancouver, BC: Far Resources Ltd (CSE:FAT) (FSE:F0R) (OTCPK:FRRSF) (www.farresources.com) (“Far Resources” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide an update on its previously announced plan of arrangement (the “Plan of Arrangement”).
All shareholders of record as of October 20, 2017 will be entitled to vote on a special resolution approving the Plan of Arrangement, at an annual general and special meeting to be held on Tuesday, December 5, 2017 (the “Meeting”). Details of the Plan of Arrangement will be provided in a Management Information Circular (the “Information Circular”) that will be mailed to all eligible Far Resources’ shareholders in November.
Upon completion of the Plan of Arrangement, eligible Far Resources’ shareholders will hold shares in two companies: Far Resources which will be dedicated to advancing the Zoro Lithium Property and a new company (“SpinCo”) which will pursue the Winston gold project located in Sierra County, New Mexico. Upon completion of the Plan of Arrangement, each eligible Far Resources shareholder will hold one Far Resources share (the “Far Resources Shares”) in the capital of the Company and a pro–rata share of the SpinCo shares to be distributed under the Plan of Arrangement (the “SpinCo Shares”) based on a conversion factor to be determined (the “Conversion Factor”).
Following the Meeting, the board of directors of Far Resources will set a share distribution record date to determine those shareholders who will receive the SpinCo Shares (the “Share Distribution Record Date”). As of the Share Distribution Record Date, each Far Resources Shareholder will receive his or her pro-rata share of the common shares in SpinCo subject to the Conversion Factor and at the same time will continue to hold the same number of Far Resources Shares that they held prior to the Plan of Arrangement.
After the Plan of Arrangement shareholders of Far Resources will hold an interest in two operating companies and will benefit from the Company’s plan to list the SpinCo Shares on a stock exchange that will ultimately provide shareholders the opportunity to realize the benefit of additional liquidity in their investments.
The Plan of Arrangement is subject to approval by the Company’s shareholders at the Meeting. It will also be subject to court and regulatory approval. The Company will provide full details of the Plan of Arrangement in the Information Circular that will be mailed to eligible shareholders and will be made available on SEDAR. Further details will be provided to shareholders and other stakeholders via news releases.
The Company also announces that it will issue 10,000 common shares in the equity of the Company at a deemed price of $0.30 per share to an outside consultant who is assisting the Company with the implementation of the Plan of Arrangement.
