15.02.2018  |  GlobeNewswire
TORONTO, Feb. 15, 2018 - Rapier Gold Inc. (TSX-V:RPR) (“Rapier”) is pleased to announce that at a special meeting of securityholders held earlier today, 90% of the Rapier securityholders present in person or by proxy voted in favour of the proposed transaction pursuant to which GFG Resources Inc. (“GFG”) agreed to acquire all of the issued and outstanding common shares of Rapier by way of a plan of arrangement (the “Arrangement”). The Arrangement was approved by the required majority of the votes cast by all of the Rapier securityholders eligible to vote at the meeting.

David Lotan, interim chief executive officer at Rapier, says: "We are very pleased with the outcome of the vote and the support of Rapier shareholders. We believe that the Arrangement represents the best way forward for Rapier. Brian Skanderbeg and the GFG team have an exemplary record of delivering value to shareholders both through exploration and corporate strategy. We look forward to working with GFG to implement a smooth integration."

Brian Skanderbeg, President & CEO of GFG, says: "We welcome the positive vote from Rapier shareholders. The combination of Rapier’s prospective properties with our recent acquisitions in the Timmins gold camp represent a compelling addition to our project portfolio. In 2018, we will aggressively advance the Pen Gold Project with a strategic district scale exploration approach which will include extensive geophysical and geochemical surveys over the entire property and a drill program to test high priority targets."

Rapier will be seeking a final order from the Supreme Court of British Columbia with respect to the Arrangement on February 19, 2018 and the Arrangement is expected to be completed on or around February 21, 2018.

At the Meeting, the Rapier shareholders also approved Rapier’s deferred share unit plan.
