Luckystrike Shares are expected to commence trading on the TSX Venture Exchange on August 14, 2018.
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Aug. 10, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Goldstrike Resources Ltd. ("Goldstrike" or the "Company") (TSX-V:GSR) (OTC:APRAF) (Frankfurt:KCG1) is pleased to announce the completion of its previously announced plan of arrangement (the "Arrangement"), which became effective at 12:01 a.m. (Vancouver time) on August 10, 2018 (the "Effective Date").
As part of the Arrangement, among other things:
- Luckystrike Resources Ltd. ("Luckystrike") indirectly acquired the Company's six 100% owned White Gold District properties, being the Lucky Strike, Hotspot, Bull's Eye, BRC, Gold Source and King's Ransom properties;
- Goldstrike shareholders received one new common share of Goldstrike (a "New Goldstrike Share") in exchange for every common share of Goldstrike held (an "Old Goldstrike Share") and one common share of Luckystrike (a "Luckystrike Share") in exchange for every seven Old Goldstrike Shares held; and
- Holders of Goldstrike options and warrants exchanged such securities for new options and warrants of Goldstrike and Luckystrike, which are exercisable into shares of such companies on their existing terms, with necessary adjustments for the Arrangement based on the proportionate value of the White Gold District properties.
The Luckystrike Shares are expected to commence trading on the TSX Venture Exchange on August 14, 2018 under the symbol "LUKY".
Share certificates representing Old Goldstrike Shares will continue to represent New Goldstrike Shares and share certificates representing Luckystrike Shares will be delivered to Goldstrike shareholders as soon as reasonably practicable. Goldstrike shareholders are not required to submit letters of transmittal or surrender their share certificates.
Concurrent with the completion of the Arrangement, Luckystrike completed a non-brokered private placement of 8,333,334 units ("Units") at a subscription price of $0.30 per Unit. Each Unit is comprised of one Luckystrike Share and one share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"), with each Warrant entitling the holder thereof to acquire one Luckystrike Share at a price of $0.60 for a period of 36 months from the Effective Date, subject to acceleration. Goldstrike was the sole subscriber under the private placement. As a result of the private placement, Goldstrike now owns or controls an aggregate of 8,333,335 Luckystrike Shares and 8,333,334 Warrants, representing approximately 22.17% of the issued and outstanding Luckystrike Shares on an undiluted basis and approximately 36.30% on a partially diluted basis (assuming only the exercise of the Warrants held by Goldstrike).
Luckystrike also completed an additional non-brokered private placement of 2,054,002 subscription receipts ("Subscription Receipts") at a subscription price of $0.30 per Subscription Receipt. On the Effective Date, each Subscription Receipt automatically converted into one Luckystrike Share and one Warrant without any further action by the subscriber or additional consideration. Pursuant to the private placement of Units and the private placement of Subscription Receipts, Luckystrike raised aggregate gross proceeds of $3,116,200.
Additional details regarding the Arrangement and the additional transactions completed thereunder are set forth in the Company's management information circular dated June 25, 2018, a copy of which is available under the Company's profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
