M2 Cobalt Announces Shareholder Approval of Plan of Arrangement with Jervois Mining
Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - June 14, 2019) - M2 Cobalt Corp. (TSXV: MC) ("M2 Cobalt") is pleased to announce that its shareholders have unanimously voted in favour of approving the special resolution (the "Arrangement Resolution") authorizing the previously announced plan of arrangement (the "Arrangement") whereby Jervois Mining Limited ("Jervois") will acquire all of the issued and outstanding common shares in the capital of M2 Cobalt (the "M2 Cobalt Shares") and, in exchange, M2 Cobalt shareholders will receive one ordinary share in the capital of Jervois (the "Jervois Shares") for each M2 Cobalt Share held.
At a special meeting of M2 Cobalt's shareholders occurring earlier today, the Arrangement Resolution was approved by 100% of the votes cast by M2 Cobalt shareholders present in person or represented by proxy. A total of 23,034,770 M2 Cobalt Shares were voted at the meeting, representing approximately 36.35% of the votes attached to all M2 Cobalt Shares outstanding as of the record date of May 10, 2019.
Closing of the Arrangement remains subject to court approval as well as other customary closing conditions. M2 Cobalt will seek a final order of the Supreme Court of British Columbia to approve the Arrangement at a hearing expected to be held on or about June 18, 2019. Assuming the timely completion or waiver of all closing conditions, M2 Cobalt expects the Arrangement to become effective on or about June 19, 2019.
In connection with the closing of the Arrangement, and subject to the final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV"), it is anticipated that Jervois will complete its previously announced secondary listing as a tier 1 mining issuer on the TSXV on or about June 21, 2019. As a result, the Jervois Shares will trade on both the TSXV and the Australian Securities Exchange, thereby providing the combined entity with access to both the Canadian and Australian capital markets and the shareholders of the combined entity with the ability to trade their Jervois Shares on either stock exchange.
On behalf of the Board,
M2 Cobalt Corp.
